Pinned toot

This is the ideal laptop pointing device. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like:


Got one of the 1-in-24 special figures. Not sure I like it though.

I was pretty fed up with the behavior of 'df', so I wrote my own diskfree tool.

It's called 'duf', it's written in #golang, and you can get it here:

On ArchLinux, you can simply install 'duf' from the AUR.

Got tired of looking like Grizzly Adams and proceeded to whack off a lot of beard(there is now what appears to be a dead animal in the trashcan). Also my respirator masks were performing less than optimally for wildfire smoke with all the bushiness that was going on. Going to need a haircut next: Who's good with scissors?

It only took 2+ years, but this is the closest thing to a selfie mastodon is going to get from me. lol

Wife has been using Manjaro on her thinkpad for a couple of months. So happy she likes it and I don't have to maintain any windows machines at home. I'll see if she's interested in trying out any other distros.

aspell is *determined* that I want to talk about "Linux bistros" instead of "Linux distros"

Well I just placed my order for another Dell Poweredge r710 server. Hopefully this one won't arrive bØrked.

Last week's fire(Almeda fire) that burned through 3 towns on my commute: The total count of residences lost exceed 2,300 now. Horrible.

It's been a bad week for lungs. Even our indoor air scrubbers haven't been able to keep up. At least the air quality isn't as bad as outside? Indoor quality is only "Very unhealthy" instead of "Hazardous"

MFW I'm reading tutorials on setting up OpenVAS/GVM opensource vulnerability scanner and all guides instruct you to disable SELinux. 🤦‍♂️

I thought it was just lazy authors, turns out moderators recommend this on the official forums.

I understand that the machines you'd be installing GVM onto are likely not production servers, but disabling SELinux for the sake of running vulnerability scans seems awfully ironic.

Well the past 24 hours have been interesting. Work pulled some strings and had gotten us employees with nowhere to go some hotel rooms (not sure how, none were available supposedly) And I stayed there until I got word that the interstate northbound had opened up. I got home at about 11pm. Phoenix and Talent Oregon were Hellish looking as I drove by them last night. Lots of people lost their homes. My coworker's house managed to survive. Three of his neighbors lost theirs.

I'm stuck in the town I work in, unable to go home due to several highways closed down due to fires and evacuations. I'm holed up at work where I have food water and internet until something changes. I'd like to go home at some point today. Hopefully everyone is making it out of harm's way ok.

Enjoying Star Trek: Lower Decks a lot so far. I plan on using a lot of today lol
