Yes, I can see how too many Read mores would be a con.

(And how is escaping HTML still a problem? :blobglare:)

Automating stuff with regexes is painful. Always some odd side cases that aren't handled well.

Playing around with Anime4K in mpv. It does sharpen the image a bit, but doesn't do much about the compression artifacts. :blob_cry:

Finished We Are Legion (We Are Bob) by Dennis E. Taylor. It deals with some interesting themes (simulating the human brain, space exploration, a bit of AI), but was utlimately shallow, unchallenging and pretentious. The book relies far too heavily on out of place humor and references to popular American SciFi. The writing is plain and I couldn't identify with the main character at all. Finally, none of the storylines really get anywhere in this book. There's a sequel, but I won't be reading it. :blobshrug:

Oh well, the manga works fine as the background for the rest of my books.

And that was the last of my boxes, I'm all set for now!

I used to think it was cool to collect manga or something. A decade later and I've no clue what to do with this stuff...

This is NOT the kind of thing I want to see when I open an otherwise perfectly functional menu.

I use software in order to be productive, not to get distracted!

I wrote a script that was supposed to set the "Engine" field. It worked, but it had a few side effects. :blobshrug:

And Zerochan was down for about 40 minutes because MariaDB thought it a good idea to fill /tmp and stop processing queries. It should have used /var/tmp instead.

My bad, config has been fixed now!

Finally finished Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. If you're looking for an entertaining, silly, over-the-top, fast-paced, nerdy cyberpunk action story with excellent world-building, then this is a pretty good read.

But if you're looking for something insightful, you'll probably want to look elsewhere. The story is based on a theory tying together the origin of conciousness, language, religion and viruses. Not all of it is bullshit, but enough to make it wholly unconvincing.

No, Youtube, I've not signed out. I never had an account in the first place, and that's not about to change. :blobunsure:

I made it to the German city of Hauptbahnhof!

That sign should have said Leipzig...

The impact of reading SciFi on error messages. :blobcat:

How I deal with the heat. Or rather, how my PC does.

Interesting. There's a 12cm fan pointed at the HDDs in my file server. Yesterday when I replaced the CPU fan I also cleaned the dust filters. Hadn't expected that small layer of dust to make a 10 °C difference.

A software update has turned terminal into Las Vegas by night.
