Heard at every conference ever:
"We'll now open up to questions from the audience."
"Hi, yes, I have a question. Well, two questions actually, and the first one has six parts. Actually less of a question, more of a story. Actually first let me explain where I'm coming from. I think first though you need my entire life story..."
- Coworker: Hey, can I ask you a question?
- Me: You just did!
- Coworker: I have a question about $specific_tech.
- Me: *waits several minutes*
- Me: It's bad enough to "ask to ask" but please don't make me ask you to ask me your question.
I think from now on I'm only communicating with Z-machine text parsers. Humans are over.
If anyone is interested in presenting at the next GrafanaCONline, the call for papers is is closing soon! Submit your 20- or 40-minute talk ideas by 06:59 AM UTC on April 10th.
That moment when you go to do a `git pull` on a service you're hosting for friends and realize that:
* you can't do a pull because you stupidly wrote the language translations you upstreamed in your working directory for the service you run
* you are almost certainly the only person who has ever even looked at the service in Esperanto anyway
* you shouldn't be updating running services while drinking, what's wrong with you
I understand the need for security training. I also understand the need to refresh this.
But I really wish I could skip watching hours of painful videos and just prove to the online test that I still know not to use "password" as my password.
Test Question: You get an email that says "Dear FIRSTNAME, I am CEO of UR COMPANY and plaze you must sends me iTunes gift crads now!!!1"
* send the gift cards
* wipe the drool off of your keyboard and _then_ send the gift cards
* not be an idiot
@fribbledom I am in total awe of the number of awesome things you build and/or contribute to. You are amazing!
In today's episode of "WTF Am I Doing With My Life", I'm running Pop!_OS on my laptop, connecting to a server in my basement running Ubuntu, on which I'm running a virtual machine of Haiku, itself a reimplementation of BeOS, on which I'm currently installing a DOS emulator.
This is either an interesting art project or a cry for help. I'm not sure which.
Occasionally I torture myself by looking at real estate in areas that are much cheaper than Boston (where I live). Sometimes this means I get to see hilarity in staging.
Anyone who knows American Sign Language (or can fingerspell) should check out the sculpture in the background of this picture.
Spoiler: it says "LOV💩"
https://github.com/muesli/duf is seeing a big traffic spike for the past 24 hours, but I haven't got the slightest clue where it's coming from...
Thanks anyway 😄
Basically this makes an X or Wayland system into a multi-seat terminal server surprisingly easily. After having done this once, I think I could scale it out to a ton of seats really quickly.
Why anyone felt the need to *build* this after, say, 1985 or so is beyond me. But it is cool regardless!
[email protected]:~$ loginctl seat-status seat1
│ [MASTER] drm:card1
Today I learned about `loginctl` which, as expected, controls Linux logins. It's not quite as well documented as I'd like, but after tinkering with it for a while I've done some very cool stuff.
I put two NVidia cards into a 2U server and used `loginctl` to associate each one with an automatic login session in lightdm (plus one non-autologin session with the built-in VGA hardware). So without creating an xorg.conf at all, this system runs an X session for each card plus Steam to stream games!
