Yay, new 4TB HDD.
What's the best filesystem to go between Linux and MacOS?

Any other recommendations for distributing a file system across several HDDs?
Else I’m going back to ham-fisted rsync and building shell scripts around that.

I’m so done with git-annex acting like a mysterious goop that fills up my hdd and not giving any output when I poke it and ask why.

Shaders turned out to be super intuitive once I got the basics down. The tutorials on were super clear. I went from nothing to making an interactive visual installation for our event (using touchdesigner for input processing) in about 5 days.

Turns out it just needed a little lube. Everything works better with a little lube.

I am a man, and I should dress like a woman if I were not such a coward.

That is, I should revel in velvets, in silks and satins, in plumes and ruffles, in rich or delicate colors, in daring and dashing modes, in endless variety suited to my whim, to the weather or the occasion. It would be great fun. It would be an artistic gratification. But I don't dare.

In the days of knighthood, when men were really breve, they out-dressed the women; but in these degenerate days we do not venture our fancies beyond cravats. No man in modern times has dared to dress as he pleased, except Oscar Wilde, and we buried him with craven hisses.

We men rail at women's fashions, but in our hearts we know ourselves to be the slaves of fashion, of one dull, deadly, monotonous fashion, which we hate, but from which we are too cowardly to free ourselves.

What's the best tutorial or method to learn some GLSL? I want to make some crunchy visuals.

lol my git annex backup script takes 45 mins to run with no changes. Hourly backups might be out of the question.

Does anyone know a good distributed backup tool? I love all the features of git annex but it’s too damn slow (on a 500gb repo) and gets weird when you actually want to edit your files.
