@aral found this #smalltech exemplar via HN where it is described as:

"I'm struggling to put my shock into words. I've been around. There's engineering. There's academia. But this falls into straight-up wizardry."

"Everything she does has this level of jaw-dropping amazingness."

Sometimes the mere process of writing out a cw is enough to make me go "huh. Maybe this joke doesn't need telling."

Relatedly, here's an easy bookmarklet to help you dodge paywalls:

javascript:location.href='https ://web.archive.org/web/*/'+location.href;

Create a new bookmark on your browser toolbar, and paste that as the url. remove space after https.

Friday fun at work:

Boss: I didn't know you'd been a heavy mechanic?
Me: Huh?
Boss: This line in your bio, "Familiar with the undercarriages of most large passenger vehicles"
Me: That's code for "I'm used to being thrown under the bus."

Wasn't expecting him to laugh.

So today is groundhog day?
Does that mean tomorrow will not be groundhog day??

2020 has been strange. So moving my coverage of all things #Linux and #OpenSource from Forbes to Medium doesn’t even seem that weird. Here’s why I’m doing it, and here’s your one chance to read what really transpired…

@alciregi CentOS is dead in that people used CentOS as a drop in replacement for RHEL, and were OK with waiting on RHEL to update first, CentOS second.

They did not sign up for being a test bed for RHEL.

"So, with #CentOS #Linux shifting direction from a downstream project to an upstream platform, what are your options?

You can opt for #openSUSE, #Debian, #Ubuntu or maybe another #RHEL fork by the original CentOS creator?

Yes, that is what #Rocky Linux is all about!"

And - BANG - it forked. Oh how I love #FLOSS...

2395. Covid Precaution Level 

title text: It's frustrating to calibrate your precautions when there's only one kind of really definitive feedback you can get, you can only get it once, and when you do it's too late.

What do you prefer? Please elaborate why, if you can spare some time to explain more.

Boosts appreciated :)
