Pinned toot

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

If you're running a Debian or Ubuntu server, checkout unattended-upgrades. It lets you update your machine automatically, so you'll never forget to, again.

I highly recommend setting it up to (at least) apply security updates.

I just tried to use my own mouse-wheel to scroll through a text editor shown in a screen capture on YouTube.

Seeing no reaction actually irritated me for a second :thaenkin:

Not exactly a "hidden" feature, but Thanks to @starbreaker for pointing out that the Reader Mode (Ctrl-Alt-R in Firefox) makes the Debian Wiki so much more readable!

Nomen est omen, I guess.

Does anyone have a user-stylesheet to make the Debian wiki more readable?

I really dislike its styling for some reason. Maybe my browser window is just too wide.

I'm currently writing a blog post with detailed instructions how to setup a remote server with full-disk encryption (boot-loader aside).

I'm pondering whether I should include a paragraph about bootstrapping Debian or simply keep it distribution-agnostic.

Opinions? Is that a familiar process for most of you? Do you just use distro images provided by your hoster?

Does anyone know of a list of files, permissions and ownerships of a default macOS install?

What the... updated a machine to latest macOS and now diskutil is missing.

Anyone else experienced that?

If only it was just my morning ๐Ÿ˜†

I had a quick workaround for my scrolling issue in a couple of minutes, but the proper fix occupied me for the rest of the day.

The commit review bot considers my code sane...

LITTLE DID IT KNOW ๐Ÿ˜‚

I didn't plan to spend my morning debugging Xorg / xcb / evdev / Qt code, but here I am :thinkerguns:

Wait a second... is saying there's a CPU instruction that does floating-point conversions now?

Apparently they are: infocenter.arm.com/help/index.

This is mildly absurd.

If you're happy and you know it Segmentation fault

You know what? I think I'll take a quick nap.

In other words, I'll be scrolling through the federated timeline, favoriting your toots, until I realize it's too bright to fall asleep anyway.

Then I'll be grumpy.

While copying a bunch of 20GB blu-ray rips, it occurred to me that I once decided to only rip my MP3s in 192kbit instead of 320kbit, just to conserve a bit of valuable disk space.

That probably was a ridiculously short-sighted decision...

In related news: it's about time I start archiving everything in 4k, x265. Right? Right.

Seriously fediverse, you rock! ๐Ÿ’•

(in response to my previous toots and your reactions to it)

Please, if you like this toot, don't just favorite it, boost it!

In return I promise I'll collect all the replies, pick the cherries, categorize the lot... and toot about it for everyone to enjoy!

Deal? ๐Ÿ‘

I'm starting to enjoy programmers streaming their coding sessions on Twich / YouTube.

There's a lot you can learn from watching someone working on a piece of source code, voicing their entire thought process.

My personal favorites so far are "Fun Fun Function" and "JustForFunc". If you already discovered interesting channels, please share them with me!

What was the most motivating, satisfying or rewarding project you've ever worked on?

Was it because of the project itself or the team you worked with? The money you made? The impact it had? The stuff you learned?

Tell me all about it, I'm curious!

I got to get up in 4 hours and drive to the airport. I can totally see that working out beautifully. NOT. :blobpats:
