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.

"In the 1970s and 80s, the Soviet Union put 5 landers on the surface of Venus and they each survived for over 30 minutes. No one has tried it since. [...]

With the 1970 launch window, the program directors were determined to make it to the Venusian surface. Whatever it takes.

And now they knew what it would take. 840 degrees Fahrenheit or 450 degrees Celsius. 100 atmospheres. Burning, corrosive acid. Let's go!".

Interesting design, and it runs Doom, so you know it's good to go:

All right, Mastodon, bed calls!

Try to carry on without me, and continue being excellent to each other! 🛏️ 💤

Like many people on @SDF I have lost quite a few followers.

Makes for a more relaxed timeline. Cleared my notifications as well.

Makes Mastodon seem almost peaceful.

Seriously, though: every time I think my career at this new company is OVER, they surprise me by actually paying attention.

Is that good or bad? I will have to see in a few months.

Bonjour :flan_wave:

je voudrais m'acheter un casque audio pour écouter de la musique sur le PC (techno, metal, hardstyle, classique... y a pas vraiment de genre en particulier)

J'ai un DragonFly AudioQuest black en DAC [1] et un budget d'une bonne centaine d'euros. Vous me conseillez quel modlèle ? Je suis bien tentée par le AKG- K-702 mais je n'y connais pas grand chose dans ce domaine...

D'ailleurs mon DAC n'est peut être pas terrible, je voulais tester un DAC comparé à la sortie audio de mon pc portable alors je n'ai pas voulu investir plus de 60€ mais j'ai déjà pu noter une différence (plus de parasites sur la sortie). Si vous pensez qu'il n'est pas très bon et que vous en connaissez un pour une centaine d'euros, je veux bien avoir des conseils là-dessus aussi :flan_thumbs:

merci beaucoup :flan_balloon:

- Me: so this is why we need a firewall here and a bastion server there. An IPAM server would be nice as well...

- Them: Too expensive. No.

- Me: Wait, isn't this solution supposed to be ISO 27001 certified? Like, soon?

- Them: Yes, ISO good.

- Me: A bastion and a firewall are the first things auditors are going to inquire about.

- Them: Uh? (surprised Pikachu face)

- Me: Still too expensive? 🤓

S'il y a des gens qui ont une machine chez sur laquelle ils font tourner des services externes dans des , j'aurai une ou deux questions concernant la nécessité ou pas de prendre une ip supplémentaire...
RT apprécié :) Par avance merci
