When confronted with 2 problems, I thought, "I know, I'll use regular expressions!"
Then I had 0 problems.
A reminder that you can still bet against Trump winning the election at 0.87 odds: https://polymarket.com/market/will-donald-trump-be-inaugurated-for-his-second-term-as-president-of-the-usa-on-inauguration-day-january-20th-2021
At this point, it's not even a prediction market on Trump anymore; it's a bet on whether the Ethereum mainnet will still be around on January 20th. That's the only remaining risk.
I have once again broken into the top 5 #Matrix homeservers by ping, by just running a stock Synapse docker container on my home closet server 🤔
I've been hoarding significant YouTube channels for years, at a cost of many terabytes of HDD space. Even though they were always available for free, I was always betting on the fact that YouTube's status as being incredibly easy to archive would not last forever.

If they ever build a physical Internet Hall of Fame, @aphyr's blog deserves its own entire wing.
Just lost an incredibly tense and close tournament #baduk match at a critical moment, because I failed to find one of the only two winning moves for black. Black to play and win the liberty race (and thus the game):

So, in the latest Windows Insider build, you can now mount physical ext4 partitions directly into a WSL2 distribution.
That is impressive. Microsoft just consistently impresses me with the polish they put into things like WSL and VSCode. The OSS half of the company is outperforming the moneymaking side by a large margin.
There's also heaps of cool projects for Gemini, an up-and-coming WWW replacement
@distrotube Just a note - your Pinebook Pro's touchpad appears to still have its protective film attached. They _should_ have been removed at the factory but a number them appear to have shipped with them still attached.
They're a bit tricky to remove yourself but you should definitely do it. The touchpad looks, feels, and behaves a lot better without it.
Is there something I can be doing client-side to unify all these different wrapping strategies? Any clients that handle this properly?
