Regular reminder that "embrace, extend, extinguish" was invented by Microsoft.

Now, Microsoft says it is "embracing" Linux and open source in general.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

The truth is, git is extremely simple to use, as long as you don't do anything with it.

Yeah, we are all pretty much raving lunatics around here.

Also: geeks, nerds, queers, trans and assorted weirdoes. And cat lovers. Adorable people one and all.

Someone keeps trying to brute-force a login to my #Wordpress sites with the username of [login] - brackets and all.

Is this some kind of secret default WP username? A misconfigured bot? I don't think brackets are even legal in WP usernames?

The Lambda variant had the same effect as the other virus, except it was coded in Scheme.

Weirdest pizza experience yesterday:

Ordered a vegetarian pizza.

Normal veg pizza means all grilled veggies toppings: bell peppers, zucchinis, tomatoes, eggplants, etc.

Received the pizza. It was topped with beets. I kid you not. Beets. Also, covered in mozzarella.

Since it was already late, and I was hungry, my reaction was just "F*, I'll just eat it".

1/10 - will never order again.

I managed to make some progress on Tx aggregation support for the #OpenBSD iwx driver today simply because a developer working at Intel has leaked the meaning of a firmware error code in a linux commit message.

Wouldn't it be nice if #intel published full documentation for things such as firmware error codes :flan_disappointed:โ€‹

Where are the detailed computer manuals from the 1970s and 80s when we need them...

Thank you all for your support and patience during the move.

Last night we moved datacenter (DC).
Started at 19:00 UTC by shutting down the VMs, the machines and make them ready for transport in custom-built crates. The last VM was started again around 21:30 UTC.

Fuhgeddaboudit is now my go-to word for most situations.

A close second is gettaoutoftown.

In all things, appreciate the irony of life.

To be alive and well is the most surprising, ridiculous and beautiful thing in the world.
