After debunking the myth of silica gel (social.polonkai.eu/@gergely/10) my son went on to disprove the “putting your finger in the pencil sharpener is bad” theory. This theory, however, turned out to be true.

A team vs. team game where only one player each team can see the map with all other players on it (from all teams). Another team member might have stealth so even their own map-seer can't see them. Other roles TBD.

Does anyone here use Cyph? I'm suspicious about it somehow. Looks like a strange combination of Keybase and Zoom.

Systems of violence and authority will always be more organized than us, by their very nature.

We cannot out-organize these systems on their own terms.

This is why voting is ineffective.

But we are capable of something that these systems are not.

We are capable of understanding and empathizing with people, outside of how they relate to these larger systems.

We will not win over systems of violence and authority by exerting contrary violence and attempting to seize authority.

We win over these systems by building bonds and communities which exist outside the mediation of capital, violence, and authority, so that when those systems lean on us to exert leverage, they find that their leverage is void, because we're not playing those games anymore.

My phoneʼs screen has a crack right where the number is so i couldnʼt see it without zooming and panning a bit. Sorry for the noise ☺

Come on, donʼt let us hang, WHATʼS THE ONE RANDOM DIGIT??!?

The rattling of the train was really boring so Tommy stood up on his seat to find amusement behind it. In a brief moment tiny serpents emerged from behind the seat. Tommy watched in awe and started playing with them.
“Tommy! Stop playing with the ladyʼs hair!” his motter shouted when she saw what her son is doing from the corner of her eye.
“Itʼs OK” the snake-haired woman said. “My hair is well mannered. Just make sure little Tommy doesnʼt go around the seat.”

I wonder if Epiphany (AKA GNOME Web) counts. Itʼs based on WebKit. I donʼt use it as a daily driver, but i often open it. I even test sites i make in it, just in case.

Travelling to a company-organised retreat. Others departured from the capital so they all went by car (with full cars), but i live a bit farther from there and the destination is on this train line anyway, so i go by train. The first train was great and comfy, with AC and everything, but it passed through a lot of towns and villages. The second train is slow, the rails are bumpy(!), thereʼs no AC so itʼs hot, but damn if the scenery doesnʼt worth it.

I also use the Android version of GNUCash, so when i use cash i can instantly book it and integrate it into the actual book keeping files (the Android version is pretty poor in features, somewhat understandably, and canʼt use the full-fledged data files even though they are on my nextcloud).

@emacsen
Whereʼs GNUCash from that list? 😧 For one of my businesses, and for private book keeping, i use that. For the other business i pay someone to do it for me, and iʼm pretty sure they use some proprietary stuff.

@jens probably because they’d have to expose their cryptography algo? I haven’t used tutanota, and only used proton for a few days (for testing) so i have no real idea, so take this with a grain of salt, obvs.

@apLundell i envy you… My Kindle Keyboard hasn’t received new words for almost a decade now.

@oldsysops
Prometheus is great for numeric metrics. Alerting requires alertmanager or Grafana, which are beasts hard to tame. Zabbix can do it in one package, so unless youʼre in Prometheusʼ native realm (Kubernetes or similar) you probably shouldnʼt go that route.

There was a huge pile of wood in my grandparentsʼ backyard. Me and my cousin played on it a lot, pretending itʼs a space station from where we protect the world with various methods. We were adults when my grandfather died and my grandma slowly used up that wood in the fireplace. Probably thatʼs why the world is not far from burning since then; we can no longer protect it from our space station.

Why donʼt electric vehicles have a solar panel on their roof, or even on the hood?

@yetiinabox
I used Zabbix for a long time, until i stopped administering computers altogether. I remember we migrated away from MRTG+Cacti+Nagios (+gnokii to send alert SMS) in favour of it. It did have some learning curve, but after i grasped all the concepts it felt natural.

Yesterday we went to a huge playground; kids enjoyed it a lot. When we arrived my daughter put her bunny-ear headband on me so she doesn’t loose it while playing. We both forgot about it until the evening when i took a selfie. Some kids also looked at me funny but i didn’t know why. It remained on my head, though. When we arrived home we walked past a gyros place where a man, who looked like your typical motorcycle badass guy, grinned at me telling me that my ears are great.(selfie, eye contact)

@welshpixie I believe you, i really don’t know 😂 I was actually looking for the name of this thing regardless the horns, but it’s a “headband” then. Thanks!
