Interesting sudo plugin: sudo_pair. You run a command under sudo, and some other user must watch and approve commands.

Definitely getting a mention in #sudomastery.

Your boss makes money by not paying you for the full value of your labour.

Pass it on...

Someone on Twitter mentioned that in some regions of Germany, a common idiom for whenever there's mist in the forest is "The foxes are making coffee", and thought the image was evocative enough for an illustration.

Well, I took the bait! 🦊☕

@Kabit I still think a lan party would be fun, because doing things with people.

- load test with synthetic traffic of varying distributions
- load test with replay of production traffic
- shadow a fraction of actual production traffic
- check for hysteresis with varying load curves and soak times
- characterize their failure modes with beyond-worst-case loads so they know what'll break first
- have separate load test environments with identical specs to production

- posts some memes and listens to the CPU fan

transition: the hardest i've ever worked to get an F

WTB rpi hat that does USB 3 PD and data at the same time.

I want to charge my phone and back it up at the same time. Preferably faster than 0.5A.

A lot of people believe in it, despite the fact that science generally disproves the notion that it affects behaviour beyond a societal placebo. Many people might not take it that seriously and only care about it because it is is a fun way to think about themselves. But those who take it very seriously are insufferable because they use every opportunity to tie your personality to it, denying all your nuance as a person.

So, am I talking about astrology... or gender :thinking_very_hard:

you’re a normal person, not working in construction, and you look up at a tower crane.

unless you completely change what you’re doing you will not operate a tower crane in your life. you probably don’t know the operator. it affects you anyway

the crane is brought to the work site piece by piece on a truck by a company you don’t know or care about

in this weird analogy my job is tying the crane parts down to the truck.

I’m doing *something* but it’s a stretch to see the big picture.

We need more women in tech tbh.

Only about 1/10 of my class members are women. Including myself.

Looking for more hackers / programmers / system admins who want to help fuck with the mastodon API / ActivityPub protocol. If you're interested shoot me a DM.

The more I realize that online environments less hostile than Tumblr, twitter and facebook are possible,

the more I get a tendency to simply refuse to interact with people who seem intent on purposely misunderstanding me, irritating me or just not engaging with me on the assumption of good intentions and the desire for mutually enjoyable contact.

& I'm still learning how to treat others like that and checking myself for the harmful behaviors that I have learned on social media.

I slept in my own house. With nobody but my girlfriend.

This hasn't happened in five years, and that was still an apartment.

I'm still not sure my brain has fully processed this.
