Rant about group work 

At university I'm really frustrated with my semester project group.

These people are all beginners. They came up with a design for our simple webapp with a bunch of features we don't need. They went to a stakeholder to confirm their design. Asking a single stakeholder what they want is unreliable, particularly because they were a friend. Nevertheless they took his confirmation as absolute truth. Usability is a huge aspect of our product.

Yesterday we attended a meeting with a *literal expert* in this narrow field, who also happens to be very close to the target audience. He had many of the same opinions as I and then some. Now my group is interpreting his words differently from me, and they are also arguing for keeping the original design due to having already spent time on it, which is basically just sunk time fallacy.


I just managed to forget my RSA passphrase.

It took me about 10 minutes of frantic guessing before the real password dawned upon me. I've been typing that thing countless times today. How is that even possible?

Just merged a PR from a fork of a fork of a fork into my fork of a fork. 2 layers of forks is apparently not enough.

Even if the top-level upstream is still maintained and receptive to PRs.

So it turns out that connecting to an IPv4 address with an IPv6 address is not a very smart thing to do.

That took some debugging. Particularly because I only supplied a domain to resolve.

It seems that each DAD is an IP address. This interface has like 64 IPv6 addresses.

I have no idea what I am waiting for

Meanwhile my ISP won't even give me a single IP that is not behind their NAS.

As DBA I have an obligation to end DATA CORRUPTION, even if that means requesting the help of a foreign dev. It is done all the time. This has NOTHING to do with corporate politics or a campaign against flash drives. This does have to do with their corruption!

This is not quite the SSID I had expected when breaking the client side validation. What's more is that I can't authenticate now.

Power management on Linux is to run “powertop --auto-tune” to quintuple battery life.

Finally got around to buying an actual home router. My new laptop has a tendency to brutally crash my Raspberry Pi. Poor little thing.

The router is only around €31. I hope it actually does what it says on the tin.
