I'll probably get kicked off for saying this, but I remember when feminists were fearless and inspiring heroes, whereas now it seems they're just a bunch of whiney bedwetters who get outraged if you use the wrong pronoun.

Dear millenial "feminists" - grow the fuck up. The more you obsess about how men speak and behave, the more you are defined by them. Grow a vagina and go do something awesome (hint: not a march).

what's so hard to understand about air conditioning??? just turn it on, set the temperature and leave it the fuck alone. I sweat more in this office than I do during sex or heavy shitting.

goddam friday afternoons go slow when sober

also, just noticed an item on my longass TODO list:
* microdosing LSD

I need to make friends with some cool people

I'm on antibiotics and can't drink. Anyone know if I can get high? I haven't smoked weed since I was about 12 and never liked it, but I've been sober all damn week and it's killing me.

just stumbled on this. probably well known but I found it useful ():

tmux sitting at 30% cpu since upgrade to latest snapshot. Weird to see it above chrome in top. Anyone know anything?

Wasted an evening trying to research the "best" headphones to buy online on a limited budget. I seem to do it every year. Seriously considering poking out my eardrums with a screwdriver to end the tedious cycle.

1 item in your Basket has changed price.
Sennheiser HD280pro Closed Monitoring Headphones has increased from £79.00 to £116.98"

In the time it took me to walk home from work? Awesome day I'm having...

root@throwaway:~# consul-template --version
Telegraf v1.2.1

ok, that'll be why it can't parse the config then...

it's got a much smaller scope than k8s, and so far in my testing it's worked really well. We're already using consul and vault and it integrates with those, whereas k8s uses etcd and its own secrets management.

I like a lot of the design choices of Nomad. They haven't wasted developer effort on a fancy (broken) web-ui like rancher did, they've kept it minimal. It doesn't do any networking, so I don't have to choose between dozens of net plugins. And it runs binaries containers and vms just fine

by the way I have no idea what anyone would care to read what I just wrote. I still haven't figured out this platform or why so many people are "following" me.

mmm...immutable infrastructure is getting more interesting the more I read, but the sysadmin in me still winces at the idea of having running boxes I can't apply security patches to.

I now regret dismissing Hashicorp tools as trendy crap. I'm playing with terraform + consul + vault + nomad and wow, it's beautiful. Terraform is basically "make" for your entire infrastructure, and it works so damn well

John Day - Patterns in Network Architecture - Preface - paragraph 1:

"This didn't start out to be a book. It started out simply as an attempt to distill what we know about networks after 35 years of beating on the problem."

OK, you hooked me, I'm reading the whole damn thing.

As a sysadmin I probably shouldn't have a rule blocking delivery of email containing "Your site is down", but I do.

Man, going bald really sucks when nature didn't bless you with the ability to grow a beard. If I shave my head I'll look like Gollum, but what other option is there?

This is an example of a revolutionary new document
format called "Plain Text". Some of the features of this format are:

* supported by every editor!
* requires no internet connection!
* editable on any device, from your phone to your TV!
* simple to backup and restore!
* compare documents with "diff"!
* search documents with "grep"!
* can be modified programaticaly using "sed" and "awk"!
* Plain-text supports every version control system out there!

Try plain-text today!

To those asking about the confluence thing...yeah, I can use confluence (though it crashes my browser randomly).

The problem is that I want our documentation to be stored in git in plain text alongside our infrastructure code. I want to be able to push changes to documentation alongside changes to code. I want to use git commands to see who changed what. I want to be able to edit documentation with the same tools in the same workflow as I do for code.

how can Debian include so much crap in the base install but not include ed??
