If you want something ad-free and spam-free, just pay/donate for it to make it happen.

I've noticed a lot of comments on the web demanding no ads but they have no intention of paying.

So, how do you want them to maintain the server and keep the lights on? Do you have some vodoo magic to help them? 🤦‍♂️

A tip that I usually have to remind my coworkers about quite often if their terminal locked up, it's quite likely they pressed ctrl+s and they just need to press ctrl+q to unlock it, I'm still quite unaware what these things really were for, but I do it automatically if my terminal doesn't react :p

"We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it."

At the end of the day, php is (nowadays) just a tool like many others, and I have more important things in my life than language superiority

If you are interested in JRPGs, I highly recommend Bitmap Books 'A Guide to Japanese Role Playing Games', currently out of print, but slated for availability this fall/autumn - I'm glad I could get a copy from the first run

manjaro.org/download.php # I randomly decided to visit the @ManjaroLinux website for the first time and was surprised to see so many of you using such an outdated distribution. ;) Happy 10th Anniversary.

Can any of you with more technical knowledge than I (especially on mobile browser ) say whether or not the top comment holds water?

🌈 Git's log and diff commands are useful for inspecting your repository changes. In my latest post, I describe the differences between "a b", "a..b" and "a...b" commit ranges. darekkay.com/blog/git-commit-r

"It feels like the last 20 years we've spent rebuilding all the stuff Unix users had builtin 20 to 40 years ago: online editors, shared home directories, etc. All sorts of things are repeating again.

One of the things Unix had was composability. If there's a table on a website now and one on another website, and you wanna join them? Fuck you."

Why do DVDs you make yourself have a clearly visible "burn mark", a circle that's darker than the unallocated space, but commercially made DVDs don't?

Aside from my trust to Manjaro and Arch repository maintainers, I think it is a wise idea to be safe than sorry and be pro-active about the situation.

I removed from my home computer. I hope a privacy-respecting fork rises from the ashes of this fantastic tool.

I still really like the Monster Hunter Stories 2 demo - a few remarks, before it releases next friday

Hi y'all, I'm gonna have to share my PC with a cousin. Should I just `adduser guest` and let him use it? Is there something else I should pay attention to (e.g. permissions...)?
