When your chatbot turns out to be a hipster programmer:

The SQL hard drive is down, hack the optical interface so we can connect the COM bus!

If we bypass the monitor, we can get to the XSS pixel through the open-source PCI capacitor!

Indexing the monitor won't do anything, we need to index the 1080p FTP sensor!

If we override the port, we can get to the XML alarm through the neural RSS feed!

The USB matrix is down, transmit the bluetooth monitor so we can program the AI feed!

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.

I released the NS API Python library version 2019 (or rather 3.0.0, moving from a funny Dutch-words-tagged XML API to a new JSON-based one. Home Assistant users and other automated service users rejoice! dammit.nl/ns-api-2019.html

I like making things, so I combined a fresh look for my weblog with a small howto for creating nifty looking wallpapers: dammit.nl/gimp-mosaic.html

With this and AMP, Google is gradually erasing the line between googling something and actually visiting a website...
