I'm trying to create a system service for Tryton ( tryton.org/ )

Tryton is the base for GNUHealth

Here is what I wrote so far
gitlab.com/humanitiesNerd/guix

Now I'd like to write a system test for the 2 services I wrote and for postgresql (it has a service but no test)

I'm tired. I would be grateful for any help

@ng0 yes I am referring to you 😉

good morning! Today is 'hate all shell scripts day!' Go forth and replace a shell script with something saner!

I guarantee that whatever I just noticed is happening to vidyagaming kids in spades, while their brains are forming. 😬

Anyway, time to unplug and go for a walk.

You want to break with old habits? Getting used to use a new search engine, online translator, etc. can be really hard. I just learned about , a nice and extension which allows you to block certain URLs or forward them. You can set up rules like "forward google.com to startpage.com" or "forward translate.google.com to deepl.com". Now every time your bad habit kicks in, your browser will remind you what you really want to do. 😀 proginosko.com/leechblock/

Made a decision a long time ago that I’d never be Great.

Great implies specialization. I like to learn a wide swath of things!

Great implies personal sacrifice. I like spending my evenings with kids and Saturdays on tinkering projects.

I’ll be Competent. I like being Good.

can anyone please explain me with simpe words what is ?

Please keep in mind that I'm NOT a native English speaker, so if there's a play on words in this name I might have missed it

I am procrastinating right now

So, Dat is implemented in node.js. This makes it impossible to plug it to existing stuff like Nautilus.

I wish there were a Rust implementation of Dat - then we could wrap it with a C / GObject API and plug it to Nautilus. "Share via Dat" or something.

"Is there a healthy and acceptable level of work? According to US researcher Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, most modern employees are productive for about four hours a day: the rest is padding and huge amounts of worry."

Accurate. I max out at 6 hours of productivity. After that, it's diminishing returns, bugs, and bad code.

Although if I'm being honest, that decline probably comes after 4 hours.

#NGI and generally #EU online works use proprietary software developed by Cisco using tons of "open source", but only available for "Mac" and "Windows". Net result is that policy work at European level de facto excludes free software users. When talking about Next Generation Internet, excuse me, but that's a show-stopper.
