Can anyone recommend me an open source software, which would allow me to quickly query data sets about aggregated data?

As in, it would retain aggregates over subsets, allowing querying them without need to reread most of the actual data.

You know how important testing is in your organization, when you casually notice that service that is supposed to collect test results and allow analyzing failures wasn't running for last three weeks.
Nobody used it, so nobody noticed.

You want to encrypt your disk

That was a rabbit hole I didn't expected

My headphones seem to be failing.

Maybe they are also connecting to Cloudflare, hope they will soon resolve the issue, so I know whether I should start looking for new ones.

Remind me, why routing half the internet through one company/might seem/ like a bad idea.
Aah. Right.

So, physical security. What is the best setup, for a laptop, that you use or heard of?
Preferrably cheap, and such that it does not compromise usability.

That made me laugh.
Training supplies, sadly no drugs.

A great article about the Boeing 737 Max issue, and the general tendencies in engineering that lead to it:

"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."

Note: phoenix will terminate an idle connection (while for example waiting for a result of a gen_server call) after one minute - unless told otherwise.

Without a single log message.

Some time ago I installed Ubuntu alongside my Gentoo so I'd have a gaming only environment in which, allegedly more things would work out of the box.

Since then "simple, basic install of" Ubuntu actually required similar amount of configuration work as being on Gentoo, and broke more often whilst providing worse tooling to fix said breakages.

I mean it's probably my bad for going with 18.10 instead of LTS, but... is this what we are supposed to recommend our gramas?

It's amusing,
I can pretty much say, that I've been battling against arcane forces all week.

Like, at least four different applications had super weird, inconceivable problems. Usually in the end related to third party software.

Apparently, chrome caches cors headers for domains so aggressively, that no refresh, no normal cache clear, probably nothing short of system register/file purge clears them.

Domain sends correct header for weeks, and yet one user's browser still reject parts of application logic (xhr)

When you install dual boot ubuntu, so "you can play more games"
