I have made many decisions today. Some of them were good.

It looks like it's going to rain

Can someone please bring my washing in for me

@icefox I'm irrationally annoyed that the sudo card is a penguin

sudo was made years before linux existed, and has been maintained by an OpenBSD developer for the last 20+ years

Gosh darn it Signal. How can a message have been sent but not received by the other person, even though I've got more messages from the other person after it was sent.

why has no one made a filesystem called BrieFS

My phone is dying and I don't know what to replace it with ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Vi relayed

because when you're enterprise-scale, you wind up with processors specifically for java and xml tasks

They've explained what happened:

This just goes to show how useless the likes of phoronix's benchmarks are, because they are definitely not accounting for things like this. Heck, they don't even account for whether their benchmarks are even testing the thing they think they're testing (gzip benchmarks for filesytem performance, anyone?)

If you could squash OpenBSD and DragonFly together it would make a heck of a nice OS

As long as you didn't call it OpenFly BSD ๐Ÿค”

We have lots of things but no one thing that does everything well :blobsad:

I shouldn't criticise them too much, they only have 50 million dollars in funding

I wish the desktop app wasn't broken garbage

I wish it was possible to search Signal messages

Guess what I just found in my old keepassx db ๐Ÿ˜Ž

so BB10's have a lockscreen and a device password

I have no idea what the device password is so I can't change any settings

Past me is the worst
