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

I wonder if @climagic is interested in this kinda stuff.
Seems very niche though.

sudo ldapwhoami -H ldapi:/// -Y external

This is how you login as the root of the cn=config database in OpenLDAP, which is where you can change the ldap server configuration (yeah, ldap configuration is stored in ldap, funny isn't it?).

ldapwhoami only tests the authentication, you can ofc replace it with ldapsearch, ldapadd, ldapvi, etc. according to what you want to do.

TIL many advanced Linux users don't know about umask(3)

@Wolf480pl Hell yes. Also make all copyright expire after 20 years, no exceptions. Free culture ftw.

Make all software and electronics patents expire after 2 years: [y/n]

@Wolf480pl @PacoVelobs Computers are the only industry I know where it's acceptable for a piece of software to run at only 5% of it's possible efficiency. Because it's easier to piece the part together that way, rather than trying to squeeze 100% out of it.

And it kinda pisses me off.

Before I was born, IT was struggling with physical limitations.
Now it's only struggling with its own complexity and its own past mistakes.

I wish I had more time and motivation to push the borders of what's possible.

Instead, I spent my time doing what everyone knows is possible, struggling against bugs and bad design decisions embedded in the software I work with. And then for the rest of the day I'm tired.

Why is most of the UX design so fixated on touchscreens?

If you look at game console controllers, you'll see buttons on the front, buttons on the sides, buttons on the back, accelerometers, optical pointing-at-screen, and tons of other innovation.

If you look at a smartphone... it was a single touchscreen 10 years ago, and it's a single touchscreen now. Nothing has changed, except any remains of physical buttons or sliding keyboards were eliminated.
IMO, this is stagnation.

eh, stupid me, all I needed is to define the same function in BOTH of the files.

maybe some total bullshit, like putting a function in the bullshit section (.bss) will do the trick?

How do I make linker fail when producing a shared library?


I control the content of a.cpp and b.cpp in the following:

gcc -std=c++11 -O3 -fPIC -c a.cpp
gcc -std=c++11 -O3 -fPIC -c b.cpp
gcc -shared a.o b.o -o

is there a way to make the 3rd command (the linker) fail, but not the first two commands?

Happy birthday, @mulander , I hope you'll have a great time!

If you're interested in how the pivot_root syscall of Linux behaves, here's an example of /proc/mountsat, edited for clarity, before and after calling pivot_root

One day, I'm gonna override the predictable network interface names, and rename "enp0s25" to "behold".
And then I'll make sure I only have 2 network interfaces: "lo" and "behold".
