I have bought an item off Amazon. From a seller. The producer representative of such item (not the seller, the producer) has contacted me, calling me by my first name, on my private mobile phone via WhatsApp.
What... What do they know about me? I tried asking for what other data the producer has, in accordance to the GDPR, and the representative suddenly went silent.
I'll be asking more questions.
Also: if you want privacy about the stuff you buy, stay off Amazon, apparently.

Last year I passed Red Hat's Certified System Administrator cert and now I'm studying for the Certified Engineer cert. Cool and everything but I frankly had enough. After this one I think I'll dive into DevOps/cloud/kubernetes... Dunno.

protip: accidentally got your rice wet? leave it in a bowl of rice over night

I should have left the company when I had the chance. Feck.

MWF i have to do slides for a class and last time I decided not to use LaTeX/Lyx and used Impress from LibreOffice instead and now I can copy the file and start working immediately without any fuss

When websites say "use our app, it's much better", they mean better for them, not you.

I just realized that I am A LOT more inclined to save money if I reason in terms of beers I can drink instead of euros I can spend.

It's been almost twenty years and I still get the chills when I watch Metal Gear Solid's promo video.

The Opportunity rover’s final message from Mars was β€œMy battery is low and it is getting dark.”

NO I’M NOT CRYING OVER A SPACE ROBOT SHUT UP

The fediverse has a changed a bit since my last visits. I dare to say... It's starting to resemble Twitter. The general vibe, I mean.
Anyone else feeling the same?

On the other hand, it was the only machine I could get with an us keyboard, 4 core / 8 threads CPU, 16 GB ram and 500 GB hard disk. I guessed it's a compromise?

Sooo I was given a 15" MacBook at work a month ago and now I've been living in the Mac world for a month... Err.. this thing is nice, but it shows its limits quite easily. Window management is anything but ergonomic and tiling only partially comes via external apps. Bash + homebrew is fine. Documentation probably exists but it's very well hidden. I miss iptables, I want to do dirty stuff with my network stack. The touchbar sucks immensely.

I've said this before: curate your own experience.

Unfollow people, turn of boosts from certain people, make lists of that's your thing, follow hashtags, mute & block liberally.

You do not owe anyone your time nor energy.

How do you cook a hard boiled egg? I fucked this one all the way up.
