screaming because it's #AceWeek
Happy Ace Week from this demi aroace gremlin artist :asexual_flag:

I was considering using this image for my profile picture, but...

it's really an amateur file, so it probably won't do.

ladies jeans have basically no functional pockets but I can still get myself stuck on doorknobs ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Every time I use dd I do:

$ sudo echo dd if=foo.img of=/dev/sdX

and then I double check that it was actually, really, truly right before I remove the echo

@kelbot Yeah, we're still doing it. Just been busy the past few weeks.

It's amazing how totally unsuited for development Windows is. I had just about managed to get a decent-ish development environment working with WSL2, but I had to throw that away the moment I connected to a VPN. Outside of WSL all the development tools are so hideously slow that it's debatable if they are even usable. I am finding zero redeemable qualities and the only way I can get my work done is to remote into a Linux VM elsewhere.

Don't worry gang, I'm not going to be sending Apple money in the near future.

I'm taking their shift to Apple silicon as a cue that I don't need to periodically buy a Mac just to "stay current" with their technology for work purposes.

@Arco I think I need it for the vaccine passports they're implementing in Wales.

I bought a second-hand Samsung J5 several months ago and I'm surprised how many apps no longer support it; including the NHS Covid app.

I don't want to have to buy a brand new phone every two years just to participate in society. I can't really afford it.

Comparing small community projects to the work of billion-dollar corporations is generally not useful, I find. Wish people would stop doing it, and more importantly, stop using it as a stick to beat said community projects with.
