If you have graph-easy and arp-scan installed, this little script can give you a pretty map of your local network:

-------
#!/bin/sh
gate=$(ip route | cut -d" " -f3|head -1)

sudo arp-scan -glx | awk '{print "[" "gateway" "]" "-->" "[" $3 "\\n" $1 "]"}' | grep -v n"$gate]"| sed s/gateway/$gate/g | graph-easy --as=boxart

I'm releasing a Linux version of Adobe reader. You can install it on any distro with this command:

> echo 'alias evince="sleep 6; evince"' >> ~/.bash_aliases

FOSS is political, but also kinda weird.

Most political viewpoints have nay-sayers, but you don't get people who say 'code should be hidden'. Nobody loves Windows - they put up with it. Nobody says it's great that all governments have their computers controlled by a single, foreign corporation.

It's 100% 'raising awareness' and 0% antagonism.

Also - Notable's a fantastic example of the unix philosophy. Office products can come with features, which sounds great until the tech (me) have to wrestle with how that thing Syncs, and its special encryption, and the special 'publish to web' feature. Notable's synchronization tool is just your normal sync tool. Its encryption is your regular encryption. Its 'publish to web' is just however you want to get markdown on the web. By doing nothing it already has everything.

Notable's just come out and it's already a fantastic and mature app. I already take notes in markdown, so there's no question of switching - one can pull up existing notes in it.

I want to like Debian, because it's obviously great, but nobody's excited about stability.

Given a modern world of connecting USBs, android chargers, and ethernet cables, those baby toys where you put shapes in the right hole have worked out really well.

Anyone know how to make a vim shortcut to insert text at the start of the line?

I'm trying to have it turn arbitrary text into a Latex header by going:

> I\section{<Escape>A}

Void Linux arm has ponysay but no cowsay.

Where are the priorities? Where are my fortune cookies? What kind of server can't greet me with a talking cow quote?

As of yesterday #Microsoft's #DRM server is gone. If you have any ebooks through their store . . . bid them adieu ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Users will be given refunds but the books themselves will no longer be readable. If you made notes on the titles, you'll get $25 credit as a, "we're sorry you'll no longer have access to the notes you took on all those books. Here's $25 and we'll call it even!"

#DefectiveByDesign is a campaign run by the #FSF to combat Digital Restrictions Management and they work to prevent this exact kind of thing from happening.
