After a leak in my ceiling, my living room is now full of drying equipment (dehumidifier, air movers) and I'm having flashbacks of working in a server room

In the past three hours, we had hail, then hail and snow, then rain, more rain with snow, a LOT more hail, more snow...and now the sky is clear and the sun is shining.

People don't talk about parser mismatch vulnerabilities enough, and I'm not sure how many people even know what they are. Which is sad, because they're one of my favorites to exploit when I find them, and they can be super nasty to fix.

So here, have a blog post: brainonfire.net/blog/2022/04/1

Oh great, has changed the way it names containers again, which breaks all the things. 💢

Bird site 

One thing I love about the (versus Twitter) is how you can tell certain folks are not worth even listening to by their instance alone.

Username ends in "shitposter.club"? That's a mutin'. I got enough angry incels and conspiracy nuts to sift through already

Got my account limited again, for a tweet that they won't even show me. Whoever's running things over there is asleep at the wheel ISTG

Spent a good deal of my Friday (and some of my weekend) trying to nail down what I thought was a bug in the same software stack, across multiple environments.

It was a typo.

Introducing seeking-maintainers.net! 🎉

A few days ago, @kev asked the community for help maintaining his side-project, 512kb.club. This got me thinking.

There are loads of maintainers out there feeling burnt out, but they can't abandon their project since people are depending on the project to be maintained.

In an effort to combat this, I built a website that lists projects looking for new maintainers. It's still quite empty and has some rough edges, so any feedback is very welcome.

web developers that prevent you from pasting passwords into forms "for security" (or the project owners that require them to do it) need to be fired

Everything I hear about Windows 11 sounds like MSFT just made a bunch of arbitrary and user-hostile design decisions that they'll probably end up rolling back to hold onto their non-business user base

Thanks all for the recommendations!

Still considering options, and I may just get hosting for my primary domain and handle the others with cloudflare email routing

Anyone have strong opinions regarding email hosting providers with custom domain support?

My grandfathered G-suite (now Workspace) account is shutting down soon, so I'm on the lookout for a provider that supports multiple domains (even with a single configuration)

It really amazes me how far some folks will go, the mental gymnastics they will twist themselves through and the hills they will die on for their so-called heroes. (See, for example, weird nerd hero worship of Elon Musk)

is one guy, and a notably rude and divisive one at that. If the man had an ounce of leadership ability in him, he'd step aside himself in the interest of the FOSS community at large.

Love to get locked out of the bird site for criticizing a conspiracy touting politician for waving around a loaded pistol WHILE DRIVING for a photo op

Covid19, levity 

Everyone's reckoning with this self isolation, meanwhile my hermit lifestyle is mostly unaffected.

The irony is I _love_ the nexus 6, but the battery and charging port wear out faster than the software, and end up very difficult and expensive to replace
