@stevelord good to know, thanks. I signed up when I saw the mail on friday, so 🤞!

I've just had the most amazing week at 44con and on the Mastering Container Secuirity Course.

The course was brilliant, and the quality of talks at 44con was awesome.

I even won a GQ electronics geiger counter!

Cheers to @stevelord + the crew for organising!

Thought this might be useful for people on here. How to host dubious content.

Missed most of the talks I wanted to watch due to work getting in the way. Grrr!

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.

“Over 2,000 years ago Aristotle dreamt of a self-weaving loom that would end slavery and exploitation. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the Luddites broke weaving machines in protest against the domination and destitution that came with the new contraptions, only to be unfairly remembered as opponents of progress. Today, in our own optimistic reveries about labor-saving devices, we too often forget to ask: who owns the looms?“

—Astra Taylor (The Automation Charade)

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

Amazed at how enraged I am by something someone said online. I'm normally pretty Zen about online shit but I was left physically shaking, which is probably far in excess of what that person wanted to invoke.

I have to keep reminding myself that my anger stems from the pain surrounding the events, not that person's words, and that I should attribute it as such.

Things I liked about 80's/90's computing:
- Total control over my hardware
- Software that worked with me, not against me
- Superior aesthetics (yeah I said it :3 )
- Overall sense of promise and freedom

Things I like about computing today:
- Easy and open access to knowledge
- Insane amounts of storage
- The sheer computing POWERRRR

Now if only we could make these attributes come together instead of being period exclusive. :blobthinking:

Figured out a kludge for dynamic manual page formatting for width of terminal window (escape the default 78 char width formatting) with much help from #openbsd on Freenode:

alias manw='man -O width=`resize | grep ^COL | cut -d\= -f2 | tr -d \;`'


alias manwb='man -O width=`resize | sed -n '/^COL/s/.*=\([0-9]*\);/\1/p'`

A different sed expression that works too:

sed -n "/^COL/s/.*=\([0-9]*\).*/\1/p"

my dad got me to watch this as a kid.

i don't think he is even slightly aware that he doesn't understand it at all, and that i actually understood it completely (fuck that sounds arrogant), and that he will never understand it

It seems today is national reply to emails without reading them day

I've worked the whole bank holiday weekend (we get this Monday off in the UK), and am feeling pretty broken right now. 10 hour days aren't really my bag at the best of times, but a bank holiday weekend heatwave, no thanks.
