I have found Militant Bisexual Youtube and am likely to be absolutely insufferable until I sober up.

When I die, I want my tombstone to read:

"BUG FIXES AND SECURITY UPDATES"

That's enough info for anyone.

@fribbledom I have an algorithm that I can run in my head to generate a unique password per site/service using a salt and parts of the service name.

The best part is that I taught the algorithm to my partner and just use a (different) shared salt for things where we need to share a password!

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"

Do you:
* send the gift cards
* wipe the drool off of your keyboard and _then_ send the gift cards
* not be an idiot

@fraterrisus Oh, gnome-tweaks and dconf-editor and I are all old friends.

I'm just miffed that things like renaming online accounts have to be done via editing ~/.config/goa-1.0/accounts.conf.

There's a field for the display name in there, but apparently letting users put "Personal" and "Work" in a box somewhere is scary and confusing so we should stick with "[email protected]" as the display name when mounting network drives.

(I miss original Unity.)

@fraterrisus I'm pretty happy with it so far in the ~week I've used it.

I have had to hack around a few things to get them to work the way I want. (It's based on GNOME which insists that Apple doesn't go far enough with hiding configuration.)

But overall it feels more like Ubuntu used to -- fast, sensible defaults, nicely laid out, and making it easy to extend and add more functionality. It also ships with the option to use a tiling WM by default, which I need to play with more.

@fribbledom I am in total awe of the number of awesome things you build and/or contribute to. You are amazing!

Really excited for FediDB, its something I wish existed when I started Pixelfed.

I hope it helps bring fediverse developers closer together and encourages greater compatibility across implementations!

@fribbledom How do I nominate languages and how do I get Forth onto the list? :D

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.

After almost a year of development, I am happy to announce #FediDB will be launching to the public this weekend!

Building ActivityPub applications will be much easier with FediDB.

Special thanks to @NGIZero for funding development of this project!

@fribbledom so I would not really describe launchpad as "easy" but put into context next to git... it's not so bad?

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💩"

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 😄

Dear makers of voice automation systems: PLEASE STOP INVENTING YOUR OWN PHONETIC ALPHABET SYSTEMS WHEN NATO PHONETCIS ALREADY EXIST.

AWS managed service for Grafana and Prometheus announced today! Very excited to see these tools made easier to access for AWS users!

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!
