@andyc haha fair! I struggled with iPhone support in Linux for a while and got pretty excited when I figured it out (disabling iCloud photo sync), but I see yours is not a technical problem :)
I was excited to identify the huge bug on my window. But as I read further in the first search result... are people getting high off of bugs? Is this a thing? http://www.greatlakesprovings.com/acanthocephala-terminalis-leaf-footed-bug.html
@andyc not sure exactly where the reality ends and the joke starts but I’ve found the iPhone to be way easier to use (transfer data to and from) in Linux than my previous Pixel thanks to libimobiledevice and ifuse for mounting.
geek docker insults
@ParadeGrotesque You do need some process running for the container to continue to run, if you want to run bash in an existing container you do ‘docker exec’ rather than ‘docker run’. You can even run an init system in a container like systemd, which makes the container operate very much like a VM but without the overhead of a kernel and virtualization.
I’m too far down the rabbit hole now I take a lot of the weirdness for granted.
@ParadeGrotesque I agree it would be incredibly opaque and frustrating if it were not possible, but you can always run a shell inside a container.
Also it doesn’t have to be a single application in a container, that’s just a “best practice” that I don’t always follow. Maybe dive a little deeper, you’re about where I was when I went from a skeptic to loving them.
Recommended stuff I self-host
I manage everything in docker containers these days with a docker-compose file. Also run a few containers with systemd and sshd that I use like virtual machines for work.
@laemeur Seems like US citizenship is a liability unless you live there. Not sure about your specific situation but it many cases you shouldn't have to pay any US taxes, but you do have to file and figure all this out which is annoying. I'd drop the citizenship for that reason alone. https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/foreign-earned-income-exclusion

Boeing sounds like it’s fallen into the same traps as the worst software products I’ve worked on. I hope things turn around. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-daily/id1200361736?i=1000436137931
The thing I find most amazing about the Mueller report is the URL. What kind of content management system are they running at the Justice Department? https://www.justice.gov/storage/report.pdf
