#emacs eshell is my main shell now. I use it with John Wiegleys em-smart.el which emulates Plan 9's 9term and added #bash completion, because seriously I can't work without that. You can find my eshell config here: https://github.com/steckerhalter/steckemacs.el/blob/7220d4bfc4f01b289ba548d6aa1fd1cd74ec986f/steckemacs.el#L844
WSL == Windows subsystem for Linux. I was very confused by this naming. Shouldn't it be "Linux subsystem for windows"? Then I realised, WSL was named so from a programmer perspective and LSW would be a user perspective.
Why are fonts looking ugly in Emacs under gnome flashback + xmonad? did I forget to please any daemons?
all computers should boot to a message which says “CAUTION: this is a computer. Are you sure you want to continue? (y/N)”
If you are doing automatic connections to peers on a local network, you probably want to be using TLS these days.
Using TLS generally requires a CN to validate. But you can use self-signed certs and TOFU (Trust on First Use) in some cases
Doing that requires generating keys. And generating keys requires using something like openssl. And learning openssl is a pain in the ass.
So I made a helper to asynchronously generate a GTlsCertificate for use in your glib/gtk apps.
@vu3rdd hell yeah! When something works flawlessly we do not rush to a bug tracker to fill an issue (and say thank you).
In the end we have a biased view that everything sucks and everything is broken, because we do not pay attention when it works.
Thank you for paying attention

"It's not an open source project unless it's on github" is not something I agree with and in fact I think it's toxic to software freedom.
I work in technology and I think that humanity needs to remember that at the end of the day technology is only as good as our social constructs.
Technology should work to serve nobler goals, not serve hedonism or temporary greed.
Advancement for advancement's sake is not noble without purpose.
We must build things that last. All things crumble to dust eventually, but the legacy it leaves should aim to be positive.
A lot of technology I see being made seems to do far more harm than good.
