A group of developers is called a merge conflict.

The Matrix is unrealistic because it's a movie where a black man and a woman tell a straight white man that everything he knows is wrong, and he just accepts that.

If you or your company rely on curl, consider a support contract. While I enjoy spending my spare time on this, actually getting food on the table is a cool concept! wolfssl.com/products/curl/

Looks like bluetooth can be tricked by a 3rd party attacker into using at most 1 byte of entropy in its encryption mechanism.

Travelling is not something I like to do, and I'm not very good at it. I'm a bit of a wreck after a 35 minute flight.

@cwebber If you boosted (and possibly liked?) it, the toot should be in your Mastodon data dump, I think.

@cwebber I try not to boost toots until I've read them fully, and the things they links to. I'm getting careful in my old age, it seems.

I'm wondering... a lot of fancier keyboards now support user-programmable RGB LEDs. Does anyone use that for something useful, something more than prettiness?

I'm thinking possibilities might be things like indicating desktop notifications, computer load level, progress bars, and to make typing nicer by indicating modifier keys being pressed.

@cstanhope Indeed. Today I feel accepted! It's uncanny how good a prognosis you made.

I find myself still wanting a Keyboardio Model 01, but I'd need to try it before deciding to buy one. Too bad they aren't on display in local shops. Hmmm.

It was my work day number 200 yesterday. I felt OK. Today I feel created.

If this gets 10 boosts, I'll post a scifi story I wrote in 2011 about Dustbowl Era gangsters and a thermionic tube-programmed robot

@federicomena Writing well about interesting things is difficult. Anything interesting is going to need deep thinking, and that's never easy.

@Greg In my jounal, which is already in git. And ikiwiki, so there's tagging.

I'm about to launch some new software. It will be installed using

curl ... | sudo dd of=/dev/sda

I've heard that "curl | bash" is insecure, so we're improving on that.

Holy shit, never considered that, but this is likely accurate.

@clacke The first draft of the outline goes into my (private) journal, which is in git already. And rendered by ikiwiki to a protected website.
