I don't even want to use this on windows....
Stupid question time! Looking into LBRY since I've seen a few links to videos there posted here.
Would like to host/seed the videos I watch on my laptops/desktops from my linux server that is always on. Would I just need to set my blobs folder to point to a share on that server and run the desktop app on the server as well with 3333/4444 open to that server through my firewall?
What happens if I try to use the app on my laptop and that network share is not available? Anyone doing this?
Had a coworker mistakenly delete a cloudformation stack that was still needed. Luckily it was in our dev account but still needed. Luckily we had snapshots of the OS and app volumes and I was able to rebuild fairly quickly.
Also made me notice we weren't getting snapshots of the uat instances and was able to remedy that.
Friendly reminder to check your backups, and even better, check your ability to restore. 😝

Love all the recommendations and traction this toot got. I decided on Bitwarden and am pleased thus far. Thanks again for everyone's insight.
Just dropped @fosstodon a little love through paypal since I'm enjoying my time here. Is there normally a call for donations a couple times a year as money gets tight or is everybody doing the patreon thing or just good about remembering to help keep the lights on?
Anyway, thanks for being excellent everyone.
Gangster capitalism and the American theft of Chinese innovation – TechCrunch
"In the U.S. according to relatively recent data, 81% of electrical engineering grad students are international, 79% in computer science are..."
"It’s great to believe the fantasy that if only these international grad students would stay home, then “real” Americans would somehow take these slots."
Except they won't cause that's hard. It's definitely an interesting point/article.

Windows Update Gets Serious: You Have The Weekend To Comply, Homeland Security Says
Glad I don't have to work on windows servers anymore. Hope nobody is working to late this weekend.
We've urged the court to factor TikTok users' First Amendment rights when it considers claims against Trump's Executive Order, in a brief primarily written by @ASULawFAC https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/09/trumps-ban-tiktok-violates-first-amendment-eliminating-unique-platform-political
First: This isn't just a ban from using App Stores, but from using US networks entirely—and it's untenable. Code is itself speech. Banning Americans from using TikTok and WeChat would violate their own First Amendment rights.
Not really the sort of news we wanted to give today, but it's important nonetheless: https://www.pine64.org/2020/09/17/psa-vulnerability-disclosure-2020-09-17/
