There was a time where I used to feel a little lonely over here (:crickets chirping:), at least compared to birdsite, but now I interact with some people, and I've been having a good time lately.

Even (especially) if you don't know me, feel free to reach out and say "Hi!" :weirdfish: :mastodon: Looking to make new friends. 🤝

This is a much smaller place, and it helps if we talk to each other more, rather than just passively react to whatever is going on.

I wanted to fix some code, but that requires more thinking than I'm currently willing to do. So I'm going to play dwarf fortress instead.

I'm not slurring my speech, I'm speaking in cursive.

For those that care, this is green Darjeeling FTGFOP1 (Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe number 1). I like it hot or cool, I like it steeped less and more, so for me it's a good strategy to just dump some leaves in a cup and leave them there. The leaves contain enough flavour for a second pouring, which tends to be a tad mild in the beginning and then turn to the more bitter, longer-steeped flavour. I therefore have a mild preference for drinking the first cup a little faster.

This sign really struck me today:

Reminded me of this article I read last year about this small, restoration era village in England, whose inhabitants displayed considerably more common sense, fortitude and willingness to sacrifice for the common good than any place in modern America.

You don't own the content of your digital garden if you need Chrome to access it, simple as that.

I'm convinced every IT pro or enthusiasts should give a try to the old computer challenge. It puts so much things into perspective!

Basically, the reef is filled with all sorts of holes and hiding places. The eel will enter a hole in the reef and flush prey which the grouper will hopefully intercept at one of the exit points and then they share the kill. Hunting together increases the odds of a meal. One of the few other species to hunt together is man and dog.

Got a dream last night, and in that we were in a party/gathering of some sort. Donald Knuth was furiously doing something like long division/factorisation using hexadecimal numbers on paper and he triumphantly gave the answer which turned out to be correct. Was impressed. 🤩

I recently received a letter (and a gift coupon) from my employer, congratulating for 15 years of work.

I've done a lot of things while working there, in fields like LAN/WAN networking, IP telephony, firewalls, remote access, IT security management, and in recent years, virtualization infrastructure (and network virtualization), so it's never really been boring.

Still, I keep wondering if I shouldn't try to see different environments before I'm ultimately too old, or too lazy. It's exhausting.

Please don't write code like this. You've already got the return value within the if test.

@samebchase Here is my full config for a vm running in vmd: gist.github.com/qbit/8322553bc

It builds 2 kernel modules that specifically help with running linux in openbsd's vmm (both modules from dv@).

That doesn't specifically help you with the networking bit, but it will make running the vm less painful later on :D
