This whole thing began as a way to deal with an open plan office and the need for a constant stream of programming-appropriate music in my headphones.

Quick update regarding passwords:

"12345" is commonly considered unsafe since 2012.

According to experts "1234567" will still be safe until 2023, at which point you should probably change all your passwords to "12345678".

Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

Same for bash, command line tools, and so on.

I want using & contributing to FS/OSS to be easier for way more people.

Boosts appreciated!!

My uncle (111 M) gifted me (33 M) a ring before leaving to go travelling. A close family friend (2019 M) told me to destroy the ring due to problematic associations with the jeweller who made it, but the ring is precious to me and I would feel guilty throwing it away. AITA?

A spaceship landed in the park. A door dilated. A cat came out, then went back in, then turned, sat down on the threshold and washed itself.
A tired voice from inside the spaceship called. "Come on, Leader, we've taken you home. Just... go."

On the NSW coast: Mixed in with a little bit of brown seaweed is a whole lot of charred leaves from the fires.

The sky is a mixture of sea mist and smoke.

"This new photo mode they added in the #KH3 DLC is too much fun."

My friend gave some feedback, some very minor tweaks but pushes it a lot more ( basically handle the atmosphere better) #illustrations #digitalart #conceptart

Does anyone know of any guides for how to set up a corporate Linux environment? As in centralized user directories and logins over the network, deploying file shares, or mounts, etc.

All the guides I find online are either "Install FreeIPA and trust it to do its magic" or they're "Ah yes, simply manually configure this LDAP server, plug it into PAM by copy-pasting this config snipped I last updated in 2012. Congratulations you've now finished step 1 of 234"

I really enjoyed the first episode of . Being the first it has the difficult job of introducing the main characters and setting the scene in about 40 minutes which it seemed to do nicely.

Finished leaving me to see more which is basically job done then.

ST #Picard S1E1 thoughts: Well, the fine tradition of Sir Patrick Stewart delivering an unbelievably better performance than the script ever could deserve continues. But I like the premise and I like seeing the old man back in action. I mean, someone’s gotta lay down the Lawful Good in a corrupt universe full of selfish incompetence. My favorite space paladin rides again!
