I picked up "SSH Mastery" by @mwlucas and gave it a read.

Even with many years of SSH under my belt I still learned a few things.

Thumbs up for the crisp writing style. Thumbs up for humor that entertains without getting in the way. "SSH Mastery" has some of the best tech writing I've come across.

Joebob sez check it out.

Spend one day in Twitter notifications and you really come to appreciate the pleasant bubble of the fediverse

Finally finished all eight books in the Expanse novel series. Good stuff. Looks like there’ll be a book nine as well.

I'm pre-emptively coining for Mastodon users that are left-handed before the hashtag can be used for anything awful and full of drama. Who's with me? Any other left-handed people here to join the cause?

I built a thing!


Find people to follow across the fediverse!

Every hour it scrapes the /explore of every safe mastodon instance on 2.7 and pulls down recent toots of popular tags. I even made the follow, like and reblog links work.

I also made it not show images for posts marked sensitive.

And if two people come in singin' a bar of "Alice's Restaurant", they may think it's a failed attempt at a flash mob

Voice Timeline just said, in a delightfully deadpan tone: “dildo chandelier”. What a time to be alive.

Whoa. Tootdon for iOS has a Voice Timeline feature.

Vim users: Any ideas why :setlocal syntax=foo doesn't work in VimR (0.20.1 (245)) on macOS 10.13.4? Same (custom) syntax file works in Terminal, MacVim, etc. TIA.

computer like jazz.

live like jazz.

imagine how awful jazz would be if every player was trying to outplay every other player.

cooperate. collaborate. get quiet together and get out of each other's way. take each other's lead. expand on each other's ideas and get excited when someone takes it in a direction you never expected.

enjoy journeying together, for you'll not come this way again in this company.

your entire itinerary is one-way, dig?

look around more.


Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
