PLZ drop what's been helping you unwind

I just finished my new project, bridging Nintendo Switch chat with Matrix

The air is still quite bad, hovering around hazardous. Yet still, my friends and previous colleagues in Eastern Washington and Oregon had over double the PM10, (660) which is beyond what the air quality index even measures. Really hope they’re able to breathe easy soon, particularly those who still have to work in this.

Guess I’m also going to need to buy air purifiers to go with my portable AC units for increasingly warm summers and wildfire season

Looking less like the Upside-Down than yesterday out, so that’s nice

Common job situation: A filesystem is full and you don't know where.

Solution: du -xSm $FS | sort -n

So "du -xSm / | sort -n" will give you a list, in MB, of biggest directories (not counting subdirectories) on the root FS, with the biggest at the bottom. Then you cd to the biggest few and see what's up.

I used this just today. (I found it was the customer's own app data taking up all the space, and didn't remove anything myself.)

I'm thinking about doing an off season 100 days of code, focusing on the coursework in the FreeCodeCamp microservices and API curriculum. I'd love any feedback if anyone's used that previously.

About to be working with Lambda and API gateway a lot more in the coming months. It’ll be nice to shift to serverless focused work as a change of pace, though it is also a bit daunting. Time to half finish another github project!

oh, you're anti-imperialist? yet you drink 'americanos'. curious 🤔

You know how dogs walk in circles on their bed before they finally lay down? I have the same energy slapping random system utilities together for hours at a time on a fresh openbox install

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

Just watched Starship Troopers again with the boys. I’d somehow forgotten just how excellent that film was.

Planning to fully de-google, and I'm not looking forward to the volume of backups I need to do, nor migrating my services to a different authentication service (I guess Authy?)
