Reading about how "automatic content recognition" works in smart TVs, and honestly I don't understand why this isn't a bigger scandal. Your PC and smartphone don't take a screenshot every five minutes and send it to Dell or Apple. I don't get why TVs can get away with this.

Let's close this old ticket (with lots of links and context) as a duplicate of this new ticket that was just reported.

OK I guess...

"you neglect a whole community that relies on (the tools you maintained and shared as FLOSS in the past)"

I understand the sentiment, but no, I have no responsibility towards you, and damn, this hurts every time.

Looking good again! @ops

Fixed a bug where a resource wasn't closed properly (github.com/lightbend/mima/pull).

Have I fanboy'ed about lately? Started 2 toy side projects in it recently, pretty impressed so far: the borrow checking is less painful than I expected.

Days since mixing up the parameters to 'ln -s': 0

*From Rotterdam to Amsterdam in 10 minutes: a 4k sailing timelapse*

"In 2013 a special transport over water left from Rotterdam to Amsterdam. A timelapse camera was installed at 30 mtrs high. The resulting film gives a unique and stunning view of the old Dutch waterways, in 4K."

Hey,
So I'm still looking for a new job, if anyone is looking for a low-level C and C++ developer with some other languages mixed in and ideally has an open, fully-remote position, let me know~.

If it's for maintaining open source tooling that's a big plus~

I was pretty fed up with the behavior of 'df', so I wrote my own diskfree tool.

It's called 'duf', it's written in #golang, and you can get it here: github.com/muesli/duf

On ArchLinux, you can simply install 'duf' from the AUR.

Creating a expression to use to create a bespoke JRE with only the modules you care about was much easier than I expected. Neat.

With this external monitor, tearing when scrolling in is very noticable.

Loading the external compositor helps somewhat, but it's still there.

I guess I should finally check out on one of these days I guess...

TFW you spent some time trying to figuring out how to configure the TLS connection between an ('as a Service') HTTPS loadbalancer and your own service correctly, only to find out the loadbalancer will just happily accept any (e.g. self-signed) certificate...

TIL: when a multimeter asks for a new battery, better take it seriously and replace it, otherwise you might be in for some funky resistance readings :D
