Why the hell is web still using passwords in 2018?
SSH has been using public key auth for over two decades now...

w # See who is logged in on a system, what they are running, it's uptime and the system load averages all in one. Seems simple and already known by many, but we always forget to tell the next generation about these commands so I'm doing so. Cheers! ;)

Adaptec SAS controller installed: ☑️
LTO drive connected: ☑️
Tape inserted: ☑️

Time for a full backup of $home.

Ever wondered why we can't have a nice discussion on the internet?

Apparently, r/slatestarcodex had one, and here is an article describing how it ended:

@Wolf480pl I just discovered that tilix has a "copy as HTML" menu!

Is there a tool that will allow me to take a "screenshot" of a text interface such that I get something in the clipboard that is not an image but some sort of text that can be used to recreate the UI, either HTML, or ANSI escape sequences, or anything in that vein?

A great article about the Boeing 737 Max issue, and the general tendencies in engineering that lead to it:
spectrum.ieee.org/aerospace/av

"the relative ease—not to mention the lack of tangible cost—of software updates has created a cultural laziness within the software engineering community. Moreover, because more and more of the hardware that we create is monitored and controlled by software, that cultural laziness is now creeping into hardware engineering—like building airliners."

@solene I figured it out. Went into settings -> phone number lookup turn off 'People lookup' (Only provider is something called Auskunft based in Austria or Germany ?)

Any #LineageOS / #CyanogenMod users out there? If you select the Phone icon and then type in a search term, why do names of people you don't know show up?

I typed in 'Tax' for Taxi.. and I got names and addresses of people in Wien, Austria coming up. Very very weird.

Anyone know why this is?

by endorsing discord, via advertising a discord guild for your FOSS project, you harm FOSS because you help them with their disinformation campaign that discord is a viable alternative to libre tools like IRC and XMPP

Why is there so many things that:
- I know
- I don't know how I learned
- my friends don't know
- I think they are supposed to know it
- I have no idea where they're supposed to know it from
?

Why are some IT things obvious to me but completely unknown to my colegues?

Wolf480pl boosted

@RandomDamage for sure. There is there weird thing that's happened with (mainly) network-based software, which is the equivalent of interior decorators learning how to use CAD software and suddenly thinking they're qualified to be architects and engineers, and most people just shrugging and letting them design buildings. Don't get me wrong, sane #UX design is really important, but back-end engineering is computer science, not visual design or even human interface design. It's horses for courses.

3G RAM is not enough to enjoy using phone with no lags, what a world to live in 😔

I’m going to try convincing my company that #FLOSS contributions on company time are a good thing. I’ve already collected a number of ideas how it can help, but I’m open for suggestions

how would you convince management to consider it?

boosts appreciated!

When configuring users in Postgres, and wondering whether it makes sense to whitelist IPs for users in pg_hba.conf even if those users have passwords - yes it does.

If not for the security, then for avoiding mistakes when you make a copy an application instance for testing and forget to change db credentials.
