Or maybe the deputy? All old white facists look the same.

if you had told college-aged me that I would be working on machines that surpassed the Sun pizza-boxen that we had in our college lab I'm not sure i would have believed you.

If you had told college-aged me that I would have a collection of programming languages available to me for free on said machines my mind would have boggled.

But that's what I have now. I have the workstation that I always dreamed I would have in my "dorm room".

Just a normal day, walking past the Prime Minister

I am writing a series of articles for Linux.com to get people up to speed with Linux admin aimed at beginners and mid-level users. These are things I struggled with myself and would have appreciated some help with back in the day.

The first one maps the Linux filesystem, explains what all those weird directory names mean and why bin/ isn't really a trash can. Check it out at linux.com/blog/learn/intro-to-

You asked for it: github.com/halcy/Mastodon-LaTe Here's a mastodon LaTeX client! Screenshots of example output attached!

like how does _that_ sales pitch go, exactly?

"yeah, listen, we've added a new feature - we're gonna do you a one shot ad post on a fringe social network full of gay space communists, people who identify strongly with cartoon animals, and programmers who are weirdly intense about ideological shit that we're not entirely sure is even real. oh yeah, and did i mention the sex professionals? that's been big lately."

#ARTODON PROGRESS!
GitLab says the deploy failed but it works perfectly....
I don't understand.

Anyway, new version up and running with a lot of new stuff:

I think we've lost the battle of package management. I don't see how we can dig ourselves out of this hole. Rust, Node, Go, Python, Elixir, Ruby... Everything rolled their own package management, virtual environments, the ability to pin/lock to specific versions of code. All of this is wholly incompatible with traditional package management.

The battle is over. The next generation of programmers reinvented the wheel and it's full of razorblades. I think we should focus our resources on containing this mess with jails/containers. There's no other viable solution. It's our grim reality now.

Oh yeah, I've been meaning to ask.

Does anyone use apps for github on Android?

I want to have one so I can easily access issues, and read what's going on while on my phone.

Recommendations are welcome! πŸ’ž

The Russian router hacking story appears to be bigβ€”so far we're only scratching the surface. Two Qs:

1β€”ICS routers targeted in energy sector. Potential for sabotage? At scale?
2β€”ISP routers targeted. Potential SSL MITMs? At scale?
