@zen3ger oh yeah, that’s a difficult one to bring back nowadays 🙁
I hope this gets better for you!

@zen3ger I think the trick here is to use that routine you like, and apply it at home as well.
If you like that time on the train to read, listen to music, and be alone (sort of) with your thoughts, make that happen at your home! If you can, wake up earlier and do those things before you start working.

This of course takes discipline and is much easier said than done. I haven’t been able to apply this myself, and I’ve been working from home for almost a year.
Still love working from though.

Pushed a large update to TryLinux.today

Added a new hardware section for Linux computers and cleaned up some inactive OS recommendations.

Pulled the trigger.

Now supporting #sourcehut financially because this is exactly the kind of thing I want.

$2/month is a great price to support @sir and crew.

I know the claim is that #Github makes our repos more easily discovered but after years of use I still don't believe the claim. A good and useful repository will be discovered with or without Github.

Long live sr.ht

#git migration to follow.

“thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later"”

Yes, software corporations are moving deeper into abusive relationship habits with their users.

You know, the other day, I was complaining about the difficulty of cache invalidation and naming things.

... figures that, today, I'd run into an off-by-one-error.

Got me reminiscent of a client that we needed data off. As part of some archaic business process by them they had to encrypt the data they sent to us.

So we wait a good 24 hours wondering where it is. So were just playing nethack to pass the time. Someones already made their base in Minetown.

Finally we get an email. With two attachments and 1 line in the email.

Attach #1: data.zip.enc
Attach #2: data.key
Line: keypasswordincleartext


Today has not been a good day for encryption. One of our Project Managers asked a client for a PGP key so we could encrypt our files, they sent us the password. Not even sure where to go with that one.

Yup, that's me.
