r/linux really is a shithole. Someone announces a new release of a prominent open source application (Blender) and the only thing the peanut gallery can argue about is which packaging system was FIRST!!!111one..
It's no wonder eyes roll when people talk about a Linux "community" https://old.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/f4ae6e/blender_282_released_blenderorg/
I bought a #tplink mesh network kit last summer. You have to install a privacy-invasive app on your phone to setup/manage the network. This worried me, so I asked #tplink to send me all of the data they had collected. Their response was sparse. In any case, I don't trust it.
Anytime I have to use a cursor for looping in a #tsql stored procedure, I feel like I have been defeated. There just wasn't enough time to research and write the code more efficiently using self joins on a table with row_num as an offset. Today, after a few years, I had to use a cursor. Damn it...
Just finished season 3 of #mrrobot last night. I'm a bit behind, but looking forward to season 4.

Even if you're not a developer, give back to the #opensource community. I do it by getting people to install #linux and explaining why it's a viable #os. Also, I run #streetcomplete which provides various data elements to the #openstreetmap project, enhancing their mapping. It's full of quests that earn you points. Install #towercollector to contribute to the #opencellid and #mozilla projects. All are available on #fdroid. And always send error/crash reports for any #foss software you use.
I'm meticulous about credit card security. However, I received a call from my credit card company regarding some suspicious charges. The first one was with #google, and a couple more with online retailers. As soon as she said #google, I knew it wasn't my set of transactions thereafter. I wonder how that fraud occurred. Always reserve a credit card or two for online transactions and a separate credit card or two for physical, in-person, transactions. And, never, ever, ever, use a debit card.
