Fun fact about :python:

You can use underscores to visually separate your numbers so that they are easier to read.

For example the number 1000000000 can be written as 1_000_000_000.

Lessens headaches when you are dealing with large numbers.

I didn't just spend 6 hours completely rewriting my over-engineered script which makes funny emoji-text for Discord. Not at all.

Dabbling around with IO schedulers. Figured out that my Arch installation uses the deadline scheduler by default for both my ssd and hdd. Interesting choice.

The hold music for our company's phone system is served by an ancient ipod that's locked in an electrical closet, duck-taped to the wall. Nobody remembers the ipod's unlock code.

Changing my DNS server to Quad9. Nice!

The functionality of github.com/codl/forget/ should really be implemented into Mastodon. It's such a fundamental setting.

So I have a newfound push to start blogging again. How and what should I use that's privacy friendly and cheap on the money side. (Configuration is just fun, so VPS etc is on the table)

I want it to be statically run and preferably be able to have control over having php scripts running or similar.

So my little Gentoo adventure has been completed. And my thoughts about it is that its not really something to do in 2019. Computers are too powerfull to get any difference for self compiling.

openRC vs systemd is just some internet bs. They work around the same for the end user. So im not really gonna bother.

Im thinking about doing Arch now as a lightweight tiling os over Gentoo. As what got me away from it is the compile times for almost no difference.

I got a homeserver now, its not hosting to the wide web, only LAN. Any cool ideas what to use it for?

The sounds of the stepper motors on a 3dprinter is 2019's dialup sounds.

Portage makes your computer into a radiator. A radiator is not something you want to be on in the middle of summer.
