Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

Same for bash, command line tools, and so on.

I want using & contributing to FS/OSS to be easier for way more people.

Boosts appreciated!!

What's the best way to merge two home networks? I want them to look like one LAN: 192.168.* addressing, Windows file sharing, etc. I've got Linux servers on both networks and also Ubiquiti routers to run tunnels, etc on. The Starlink network has double NAT (one carrier).

Jeeeepers, ~14 minutes to run `mpc --wait update` when my music library is mounted via a Samba share (local network, cat5), ~10 seconds to run the same update to an mpd instance running on the machine that contains the drive being scanned.

Gives me a better idea of why the satellite database feature exists: mpd.readthedocs.io/en/latest/u

In Xanadu did KubIa Khan a stately pleasure dome decree. His twin brother, Kabla Kun, hates pleasure domes and never makes decrees.

You may ask one question.

Today (last Friday of July) is the System Administrator Appreciation Day. Don't forget your backups, and show your appreciation to your local #sysadmin :-) If you want to know more about DSA, the Debian System Administrator team, you can have a look at their webpage dsa.debian.org/ - Thanks DSA for taking care of the Debian infrastructure!

Axe murder Telltale Heart style is pretty unrelatable, but just sealing someone behind a wall and walking away is nice and low stress

I think the Cask of Amontillado is so riffable because everyone knows someone they'd seal up in a wall if they could

when people ask "what advantage could there be to using IRC in this day and age?" ...

I just got annoyed with not finding out about build failures in CI for #fennel. I went to look to see if any chat integration was supported by my CI host, and they didn't have any. then I realized I could just write my own IRC notifier with a short script.

it's 13 lines and the only dependency is netcat, a 27kb program that you probably already have: p.hagelb.org/irc-announce.fnl.

DHL sent ALL PinePhones to New Zealand instead of their actual destinations. How this happened is beyond us. This is a massive blunder on their part, but ultimately we're the one that gets to apologize to you - very sorry about this. It will take a week to sort this situation out.

Him: I don’t know, something tall?

Me: I LOVE IT
