I've been around long enough, I guess it's time for an .

WASP. he/his. cishet. married.

Native speaker of en_US (Texas). Can also speak/read es_MX, and read pt_BR and it_IT.

I like Doctor Who (McCoy was "my Doctor") and cooking shows. I'm currently reading Pat Rothfuss' Kingkiller books.

I'm not a programmer, but I know enough Python and Perl to get by.

In my spare time I play older games (Half-Life 2, Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy 6) and watch Twitch speedrun streams.

I'm afraid I must migrate to another instance; m.s is just WAY too full these days. Here's hoping the automated tools work the way I want; if not, thanks for letting me follow you before!

90-minute conference call that lasted 9 minutes: not gonna lie, it's a great reason to enjoy the weather and drink some tea. Wish every meeting could be that short.

There are a few other packages that also appear to be related (and which I "updated" the same way):


Although I must admit that everything started working for me after just downgrading network-manager. The other packages I only downgraded "just in case".

It'll technically be a downgrade (it'll say as much in the console) but when it's done, and a reboot has occurred, DNS will work as expected on your VPN connection.

Full commands because of character limits:

apt install --reinstall network-manager=1.10.6-2ubuntu1.1

apt install --reinstall network-manager-config-connectivity-ubuntu=1.10.6-2ubuntu1.1

So I discovered this today, and figured I'd pass it along in case anyone else is running into the same problem.

Before fixing it this morning, I'd connect to my (work) VPN and would be unable to resolve internal hostnames on the remote network. Turns out there was a regression in network-manager, and an older version was re-pinned to bionic-updates. If you've having this problem, "update" network-manager to version 1.10.6-2ubuntu1.1 (apt install --reinstall network-manager=###)

Part of me feels bad that I don't post more here. The other part of me knows that I should just continue to be myself, and not feel pressured to share anything I don't want to.
Here, have a picture of my coffee from this morning. It has a message!

I haven't said anything here in a while. I just haven't had any interest at all in, well, anything. Here or anywhere else. Going through the motions at work and at home, sleeping too much. Woodshop hasn't been touched in months, can't read more than a couple of pages in my stack of "in progress" books before I give up, etc. I'd talk to my doctor about changing my meds, but I don't really care about that either.

I really like coffee, but why do third-wave baristas insist on extracting their espresso so that it tastes lemony?

Not sure why I thought it would be easy, bit it turns out that removing the chuck on a lathe older than me is quite the task.

🔮retoot this and il tell you how you die

I’m pretty sure I should be sleeping, and looking at my phone probably isn’t helping, but I'm just not tired.
The storm outside the window sounds nice.

boost if you give goths permission to pose and take photos on your grave after you die

Memo to myself: even if the fountain pen reservoir looks empty, and the pen doesn't write, be sure to flush it before switching ink colors.
Related: the ink I bought this week is actually a very nice royal blue, not a dark blue-black

I finally got sick of having to remember to mute Twitch before I walk away from my desk, so I wrote a script that mutes/un-mutes the pulseaudio to correspond to the screen lock state. It's been a week and I've easily forgotten it was there. Which I think is the sign of a good solution.

I keep accidentally tearing tabs out of my firefox window. I wonder if there's a stickiness setting that'd make that happen less often.

I wonder what's more expensive, bifocal-lens glasses, or contact lenses and reading glasses?

does anyone else almost always say "please" when asking Siri/Alexa/Googles-Assistant-whatever-its-named to do something, like set an alarm or timer?

friendly reminder: your tea is getting cold.
