I'm currently installing OpenBSD 6.6(snapshot) on an 1999 IBM Network Station 8364-TGE. It's slow ...

EIN SCHEISSER (kan rustig iemand met constipatie zijn - een overeenkomstige uitdrukking die me invalt en die ik mooi vind is shithead).

In Duitsland, SCHEISSE is het meest gebruikt. SO EIN SCHEISS!, SCHEISS MACHEN (niet te verwarren met bowel movements), RED KEINEN SCHEISS, SCHEISSDRECK, DAS GEHT DIR EINEN SCHEISS AN, BIS ZUM HALS IN DER SCHEISSE STECKEN (ook hier vooral plastisch voorstellen), DER FILM IST GROSSE SCHEISSE, SCHÖNE SCHEISSE (N.B. dit is geen kunstzinnige waardering), DAS IST MIR SCHEISS EGAL, WIR SCHEISSEN AUF IHN (ook hier geen werkelijke bowel movements in het spel),

From an email my father once wrote:

"De meest voorkomende verwensing in Frankrijk is MERDE. Ik kan me niet voorstellen hoe een boze Nederlander POEP! zou roepen.

En er zijn vele afleidingen: MERDIQUE en MERDEUX (shitty), MERDIER (varkenskot), MERDOYER (er de ballen van terechtbrengen).

En uitdrukkingen: IL NE SE PREND PAS POUR DE LA MERDE (he thinks the sun shines out of his arse), ON Y VA, OUI OU MERDE? (Are we going or aren't we, for Christ's sake)."

While it may seem ironic that Bill Gates asks "What’s it like to live on less than $2 a day?", I think his post, and the videos embedded in it, are very much worth seeing.

"A collection of pure bash alternatives to external programs. The bash scripting language is powerful, and many tasks can be accomplished without depending on external programs."

Toot is a CLI and TUI tool for interacting with Mastodon instances from the command line.

"DNS-over-HTTPS will be rolled out by default in Firefox for U.S. users starting at the end of September 2019. Firefox will default to using Cloudflare's at first, but that may change if other resolvers adopt a comparably strong privacy policy.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

"If you take a vehicle loaned out by Zipcar—a rental service where drivers use RFID cards or a mobile app to open up the car—to an area without cell reception, there’s a chance the car will not work. The doors won’t open, and even if they do, the engine will not start. And because you will be in an area with no cell reception, it might be impossible for you to call for help.”

I swear you’re building this shit wrong.

" - scans the inbox for emails from "Kumar" (a DBA at our clients). Looks for keywords like "help", "trouble", "sorry" etc. If keywords are found - the script SSHes into the clients server and rolls back the staging database to the latest backup. Then sends a reply "no worries mate, be careful next time”.

Last night at 21:40 I typed:

`dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/rsd0c bs=1m`

Not only did I nuke my #OpenBSD install, but the #fde container as well.

What else would you do some 17 hours before your flight to #vBSDCon to talk about "Road Warrior Disaster Recovery"?

Always travel with a Sharpie. You never know when you'll need one.

And a recent backup. Same reason. :flan_cool:

Registration for @eurobsdcon 2019 at Lillehammer September 19-22 is still open. See Some tutorials are full up, the social event is not! See you in Lillehammer!

That warm, fuzzy feeling I get on when somebody follows me and I recognize full name, avatar, and handle from -- no need to relearn. :-)
