This is BONKERS. I can't believe CBS is pursuing this instead of just...bringing mask and distancing back to its facilities
Late July: Canadian Blood Services (CBS) announces it is dropping distancing and masking at its clinics
Early August: CBS announces it is urgently in need of donors. Reports begin to circulate that CBS is considering turning blood donation into a for-profit plasma collection system
Mid-August: CBS suddenly starts posting a bunch of listings to fill vacated positions
Everyone else: *Sleeping, in complete beatific peace*
Me: *Sits bolt upright in bed* But most accounts of the metaphysics of personal identity require that for you to meaningfully still be *you,* your genetic makeup must be the same in any possible world.

#askfedi Anyone got a spare server they can sell me for cheap/free. I'm trying to start my own consulting company. There are grants available for disabled people to do that in my state..
But here's the thing. NYS is out of money for this year. The earliest I'll get my grant is Febuary 2023, and that's excessively optimistic according to my contacts at the state
I'd like to start practicing for cert exams and such before then. I need better hardware to do that. My current server box a budget gaming pc from 2011ish. Can anyone help
I've now published the modified version of zfs_exporter that we're using on Linux to expose ZFS IO stats to Prometheus. https://github.com/siebenmann/zfs_exporter (branch cks-upstream, which should be the default).

I have been wanting to replace the Pi 3B+ on Kodi duty in the living room for some time now with a more 4K-capable machine. (We still have only a 1080p TV, but increasingly often the movies and shows I buy on physical disc include only a 4K version, omitting the 1080p Blu-Ray.)
Last week a good sale price broke down my reticence, and now I have a MeLe Quieter3C thingy up and running. It runs quite warm, unsurprisingly. It's impressively capable for the size & price! Boo, r8169 NIC though.
@mcc @tripofmice @nev also per @lilithmooncohen 's good advice ( https://tech.lgbt/@lilithmooncohen/108211843212088472 ) I make a habit of explicitly listing dotfiles that might contain secrets in a ~/.dotfiles_ignore which I configure my dotfiles repo to use with the `core.excludesFile` config directive
I have this in my ~/.bashrc:
alias dotfiles='/home/gnomon/bin/git --git-dir=$HOME/.dotfiles/ --work-tree=$HOME'
...and in ~/.dotfiles/config:
[status] showUntrackedFiles = no
So I never have to move or link files into place, and `dotfiles status` only knows about the files I have explicitly told it to track.
