Working on unfucking my office. Despite the big tv in here, I'm music-only because the thought of hearing people talking gets my stress level really high right now.
If any of the Windows 7 users looking down the barrel of End Of Life for the platform are interested in Linux as an alternative to Windows 10 -- feel free to connect with me and ask questions.
It's not for everyone and I won't have all the answers, but if you think it might be for you and are concerned about something let me know and I'll do my best to point you to the right resources.
Geesh. I have this box for signed and otherwise difficult-to-come-by CDs. It's nothing fancy but it keeps them from getting knocked around. It has a lock on the front which I used in the move last year to keep them from getting lose. As one does, I lost the key in the move.
I haven't picked a lock in at least a year, maybe two. But I got my set out today and went to open that box of CDs. Took me 30s, most of which was picking the right lever.
Near as I can tell there's only a single keyed pin. The rest are simply not part of the locking mechanism.
In summary, learning to pick locks at least a little bit is very useful around the house. (particularly if there's a MasterLock at play. Never met one that couldn't be opened by raking)
Technical, long, git, semver, anger Show more
Note to self. Punch myself in the face the next time I say "yeah, using git tags + semver is ok for project versioning".
Here's the trick.
Assume we're tagging a git repo like '1.10.0' to mark a release.
In git, if your most recent tag is 1.10.0 but you've made some changes, the description will be '1.10.0-abcde-dirty'.
In semver, anything with a - at the end is a prerelease.
So, in git world '1.10.0' occurs earlier than '1.10.0-abcde-dirty'. In a comparison '1.10.0' < '1.10.0-abcde-dirty'
In semver world, '1.10.0' occurs later than '1.10.0-abcde-dirty'. In a comparison, '1.10.0' > '1.10.0-abcde-dirty'
You can't really use raw git tags and descriptions if you want to also use semver comparisons. Such a mess.

Seems like some thing @mwlucas would use a lot.
well, fediverse... You have guaranteed upgrades for hackers.town infrastructure, and I am so grateful for that.
our helpers around here will get paid, the storage gets upgraded, and we will continue to offer the services that we do now... those can be found at:
More in the future as well...
Thank you netizens.

DIY VT100. Very cool stuff https://www.hackster.io/mad-resistor/diy-vt100-a-miniature-hardware-terminal-041931
Hm. Do I trust Ubiquiti enough to put a self-hosting system on the unused port on my USG? That's theoretically on its own hardware network, not SDN'd into the rest? Will have to ponder that. I could probably drop my entire main VPS that way. It's not a huge amount of money but it's an interesting idea nonetheless
