@woozle Why do some programmers have to change their keyboards more often? Because some languages are strongly typed

outing myself as an insufferable nerd, but there was a 4-5 month period where i was like "i'm imagining it, i must be crazy" and i just straight up kept track on a SPREADSHEET, i swear to god i had a little number clicker

women around me got interrupted ~2x as much as men

i get interrupted ~3-4x as much as after i came out as transfemme

women and people i knew to be trans-friendly had no significant difference from men as a whole

everyone has to work on it, it's a cultural pressure

Do I have any infosec/cybersec friends willing to talk to my undergrads and grads about how they got started in security, what kinds of security job(s) they've had, and how to get your first infosec job? Would be a Wednesday evening (NY time). We can arrange details.

Boosts OK.

I've blogged about SSH CA. I'm preparing to give commercial training on managing an SSH CA. Ping me if interested.

My life as a programmer would be so much simpler if I didn't have to deal with computers.

All browser prompts need a "Lie" function in addition to Allow and Block.

I've ran the test suite for some of my own software many tens of thousands of time. It's easy to in a loop. I call that well-tested software.

(This is an obvious joke. Testing the same thing 10 000 times does not mean testing it better then doing it once.)

Reviewing the calendar I see that this coming Sunday is Stanislov Petrov Day. There are many famous military figures responsible for countless deaths. Petrov is a lesser known military figure responsible for preventing countless deaths by preventing the start of a nuclear war.

I'm working on upgrading my MNT laptop's trackball (!) which is a bit rough and scratchy, so I'm wondering where to start, and... there, in ~/src/reform, is all the CAD files and schematics for the whole thng. Everything I need. just... there. No fuss, no drama. All computering should be like this.

There's being conservative because you don't want things to change much.

And then there's being conservative because you want your country to go backwards and abandon the metric system in favour of an obsolete Imperial system of measurement.

Trying to be funny 

I just responded to a review comment with:

Ugh. I see the efficiency point, but ugh. This feels like it's way too low-level to be easily understood by future-me. Future-me is a dullard and a weakling, confused at the best of times and quick to anger. It's a good thing we can never be in the same place at the same time, or I'd be ranted at extensively.

Luckily, LWN doesn't follow me here so they won't quote that.


How much does a rainbow weigh?

 — Not much. It’s pretty light.

rust + amazon, birdsite link 

If you saw Steve Klabnik's tweets about Amazon and are concerned about what's going on at the Rust Foundation, I wrote an explainer thread over on birdsite

When writing software, or debugging software, shortening tthe speed of the edit/build/test/examine/wtf cycle is one key element for higher productivity.


QT torgo: Glasses with cameras in them that are wired directly into the world’s biggest super surveillance platform are not a good idea.
