Atom Text Editor ( atom.io ) is a 194 megabyte download and takes 792 megabytes after installing.

792 megabytes for a text editor.

Does anyone else find this excessive? What in heck is USING all that space????

Friendship ended with ptrace. Now seccomp is my best friend.

Getting real tired of having to refuel this janky human body 3+ times per day.

I thought and hoped squid might be able to do it, but it doesn't look like it.

I'm surprised there doesn't seem to be a plug-and-play solution for MITM-caching-proxying All The Things from a Docker container. Like, installing a root cert in a place or two inside the container, and then having a caching proxy outside the container generate whatever certs it needs on the fly.

I could run a local apt package cache and point everything at that, which solves a fair bit, but not everything. (e.g. `wget`ing arbitrary data files)

My estimated wait time has been "over 10 minutes" for 22 minutes. Technically correct: the best kind of correct.

@guardianproject Has Guardian Project or its apps been removed from f-droid? Orbot and Tor Browser don't show up in f-droid search, and links from Guardian Project to its pages on f-droid are broken. e.g. f-droid.org/packages/org.torpr

Me: We already have two cats. Three would be too many.


I was remembering some warning about them using the opportunity to "case your house" and then come back later, which seems a lot more far fetched. (Though I would be a lot more hesitant to let a stranger inside than just meet them in my driveway)

I guess the more compelling danger is that they take $valuable_thing from you by force then and there; better to be somewhere around people and/or cameras.

If I do a live online workshop on writing #Python modules using #rustlang, will you join it? It will be around 2 hours long at least. Reply to the thread if you want to join in. Please RT for more reach.

Selling something on craigslist. Is there any evidence of substantial risk from having a buyer meet you at your home? Or is that a holdover from "omg never let anyone online know anything about you even your first name" paranoia?

Like, yeah, I guess they *could* decide to come back and rob me later, but I don't see how it's any more dangerous than having and advertising a garage sale, for example
