The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

For legacy reasons, everyone's name starts with "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;".

Devil MAY Cry was revised to Devil MUST Cry in a later version of the RFC

"moped" is such a stupid word for a scooter.

"motorized pedestrian" should refer instead to a specific type of mech.

Updated my #Liberapay profile (liberapay.com/algernon/), to reflect that the donations through Liberapay are going to be used to buy keyboards to port #Kaleidoscope and #Chrysalis to.

First day using wireguard. So far it looks pretty cool and I may only have to file one bug against the ubuntu package.

A time traveller from the 2000's visits a modern software company

So I watched the systemd-resolvd video from fosdem.
Unfortunately the audio crapped out at inconvenient times and it was not quite clear from the slides: Does systemd-resolvd figure out what works on its own or is the user supposed to push buttons?

Will it stop doing validation or does the user need to push a button?

When SMTP developers meet in real life they greet each other with a secret handshake, consisting of a misspelling of the word hello and listing their skills

And JIRA also fails to work without a reload after a single click while disconnected.

And overall I hate the world in general and computers especially today.

Yeah, KDE is nice and some things about more modern fancy distros are cool, but my Debian + xmonad + wpa_supplicant + dhcpcf frankensetup connects faster to my wifi than I can type my password after waking up, 100% reliable.

KDE + network-manager is not 100% reliable and slow. Meh

linux in a nutshell

Looking at you, snap.
