Well, made it official. It appears that "HQ2" was, indeed, a sham. I sure hope whatever asinine incentives and tax breaks they were offered can be retracted; a bait-and-switch deserves nothing less in response.

journalists need to stop referring to amazon’s “global workforce of 613,000” unless they mention at some point that 50,000 of those people are software developers making $200k and the other 550,000 are warehouse and shipment workers pissing into 2-liter bottles

And... It works!

It was a bit of a bother, because you should not download w3m from its "official" sourceforge page but from its Debian page: salsa.debian.org/debian/w3m.gi

Downloading it from Sourceforge results in a badly broken compilation on the gcc 4.8.2 installed on my Slackware home server.

And the hint I needed was on the SlackBuilds page... Of course: slackbuilds.org/repository/14.

RT @Ocasio2018@twitter.com: Amazon is a billion-dollar company. The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when our subway is crumbling and our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here.

Quand je pense au nom de code de la prochaine version d'Ubuntu, "Disco Dingo" ... Je pense à ça, normal ? 🤔

Wait... Why am I compiling w3m again? 😋

I mean, seriously, I did not drink anything at lunch, and I was in a rather good mood this morning.

Bon, Mastodon, question pour les Français : qui c'est qui va au PyParis 2018 demain ?

Histoire que je me retrouve pas tout seul... 🙃

🎶 If there's something weird. In the config file. Who ya gonna call? YAK-SHAVERS! 🎶

This being said, I am not on call today. And I am moving away from Ops into Architecture soon, so...

Pop-corn time! 🍿 😋

"I don't believe our species can survive unless we fix this (social media). We can not have a society, in which, if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is, if it's financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them."

Ooops! The database cluster just fell flat on its face.

DBAs are not happy, for some reason. 😋

This company is such a wonder of organization, that we don't have centralized monitoring. Don't ask.

@ParadeGrotesque @bortzmeyer Un article assez intéressant sur ce sujet : jvns.ca/blog/2018/11/11/unders

Qui ne parle pas exclusivement de kubernetes mais le prend en exemple et résume très bien le choix ou non de cet outil (parce que la courbe d'apprentissage de kubernetes, ça piquotte)

Work iPhone displays "Charged: 37%" message on lock screen.

Same lock screen, same phone, same time: the little battery in the top right corner shows in charge icon 🔋 with 40% next to it.

Brexit shows that idiots and incompetents are in charge in the UK : irishtimes.com/business/econom

Fintan O'Toole (still in the Irish Times) : Historians will not believe sheer ignorance of Brexit supporters

Is it me, or is the Irish Times slightly critical of Brexit? 🤣

10h30 de garde à vue pour trois militants #antipub qui commémoraient le 11 novembre à leur manière, pour "outrage en réunion à personne dépositaire de l'autorité publique".
