It wouldn't be a true vacation without getting off the plane and discovering my mail server rebooted unexpectedly and failed to fsck.

Other people take vacations. I run emergency preparedness live testing drills.

Can't create an Epic Games store account because they think my email isn't real. More like epic fail, haha harhar.

(No + or anything fancy, literally just tedu@tedunangst.com. Apparently in the new world order only gmail users are human.)

that was one painless upgrade to mastodon 3

Nerd snipe 

@ed1conf @farrokhi

An image with only: /bin/ed, /lib/musl.so, and /tmp.
Comes out to 640kB, which should be enough for anybody.

FROM alpine AS builder
RUN apk add ed

FROM scratch
COPY --from=builder /tmp /tmp
COPY --from=builder /lib/ld-musl-x86_64.so.1 /lib/
COPY --from=builder /bin/ed /bin/
ENTRYPOINT ["/bin/ed"]

There's some good commentary here about policy and regulation, and a sort of blind spot regarding new laws. The gist of it is Facebook did a bad thing, surely that's illegal, so let's punish them via big fines, etc. But we're not going to write a new law to forbid the bad stuff because that would be to admit it wasn't illegal the first time. In a way, we handicap our efforts to criminalize bad behavior because we can't stand the idea that bad people might get a free pass. And so, Facebook gets to negotiate its punishment because if it's too heavy, they'll go to court and argue the bad stuff was never illegal. Spoiler alert: nobody wins, but everybody gets to put out a press release declaring their satisfaction resolving the matter.

amazon global shipping (standard) sure is slow

haven't updated this thing for a long while. My adventure in fixing node-sass on freebsd proved useful.

looks like my ryzen have no problem reaching 3.7GHz with stock cooler and single exhaust fan. And the ram sticks at 2666.
