My bunny chewed my headphone cable on my really nice open-back headphones. :'(

Bad bun bun.

Going to try to solder in a new jack and convert them to use a detachable cable.

Got a mail server up and running on my server! Geary seems to be having trouble adding it, though. Not sure yet if it's a DNS problem or what. No problem connecting from my phone.

Night two on the . Still no purified water. Will hopefully run out to get some tomorrow. Was definitely feeling dry today, but wasn't too bad.

@rtwx @mdhughes FYI, zsh can do the same autocomplete stuff with an extension.

I think the fish people are taking the right approach with 3.0 by starting to allow compatibility things for their users coming from lifetimes with other shells. Things like allowing `&&` and `||` in place of `and` and `or`.

@jhulten Honestly, I didn't seem to have much trouble with it first night. Mask is quite comfortable, and I got the green smiley face for unbroken seal in the morning.

Now to set up recurring calendar alerts to remind me to clean it on a schedule...

Straw poll:

How do you guys feel about ? I've been using for a few years now. And, of course, there's plenty of on any servers I don't spend a decent amount of time in. I do occasionally play with , but always seem to stray back to zsh. Maybe 2019 and fish 3.0 will change that. We'll see!

First night with a . Took a nap with it earlier with no problem. Unfortunately I don't have any distilled water on hand for the humidifier. Will need to pick some up tomorrow.

@ordinarylava @dublinux other considerations: VPN or TOR, Firefox now includes pretty decent tracking protection by default.

I would say that adding privacy badger and possum, noscript, and decentraleyes is probably a MORE secure solution. It's just a matter of where your security/convenience line is.

Working on the latest . This is going to be a good episode, and I think 2019 is going to be a good year for them. They've really gotten their format down pat, and I've got the editing right about perfect.

All that aside, 2019 is already shaping up to be a great year for in general. We're starting off with a bang with Bird Box and Bandersnatch (yes, I know Bandersnatch was technically released in 2018...). And Jordan Peele has some goodies in the pipe.

Finishing up The Punisher season one. I'd say the odds of Netflix screwing up season two like they screwed up follow up season of their other Marvel series are very high.

Still, I enjoyed season one well enough. Enjoyable but not excellent.

Went to the pet store today to look at the baby bunnies. Talked to the clerk, who recognized me as the person who called for information about the rabbit (Min) my wife and I rescued from my vet. She said they had a surrendered rabbit that they wanted me to look at.

She's super sweet, but I sooooo don't need another rabbit. Number nine (another rescue, this one from LV) will be here later this month.

@anna you know, I'm cisgendered, but I'd really love to hear someone yell "SMASH THE HETERARCHY!"

Nothing quite like watching a disk clone progress bar creep along...

@VikingKong I may have to read it after I finally finish Persepolis Rising. Love a good apocalypse story, even if they always seem to hinge upon the idea of traveling to an oasis.

Bunnies! Show more

@mishari FWIW, my degree is in Drama and I spent a decade in the theater and music industry as an audio engineer before moving into IT.

@mishari I never studied in the traditional sense. However, I've always had a deep curiousness about technology. My studies have been along the lines of "I want to do X," then figuring out the best way to do it.

For example, my old home server didn't have enough space and was quite old. So I spent the weekend learning Snap, Docker, and poking at Kubernetes to figure out which one made the most sense for the project. Also figured out and set up Snapraid and mergerFS.

@mishari my dad still has our old C64, and it still works!

My uncle helped teach me how to handle DOS and build computers. Put my first i386 together when I was 9!

I had one of the early consumer graphics cards, which made Quake (the original) amazing.

Started using Linux with Mandrake in High School. Went mostly full time Linux in college (dual boot for gaming). Went into IT 5 years ago after music industry career and am now a lead network engineer.

So it's two am here in Savannah, and I was just thinking about going to bed cuz work in the morning. Then my wife informs me that we're closed tomorrow. Time for a holiday pour of champagne!
