I’m not the first person to remark on this but the fact of it is that the orc’s enthusiastically shouting “meat’s back on the menu boys” in the third Lord Of The Rings movie implies that hidden somewhere in the background of the first two movies is a vegetarian orc restaurant franchise with a despondent clientele and I will never stop finding that mental image hilarious.
So we used to use rsync.net at my last job and it worked pretty well, so I'm biting the bullet and deciding to pay for off-site backup again (vs schlepping a hard drive somewhere every week).
One of the things I loved about rsync.net is that you just get ssh access to a big file system... you can get files onto it any way you want if it can be done by ssh/rsync. Apparently you can even run a few commands on their side (like git pull). This is my kind of service... no custom clients, etc. 👍
Sometimes shaving with an electric shaver feels like scrubbing whiskers off with a pumice stone. Not so much that it's uncomfortable, but just the scrubbing action, hoping that with each pass, more hairs will randomly slip into the little slots. I've been tempted to try a double-edge safety razor.
@jgoerzen You might be surprised at how many services and products I've chosen because you did all the heavy lifting for me. It helped that we sat in the same office for a few years, but it still keeps happening.

Why are emacs' alignment tools so difficult and cumbersome to use? Most of them seem to have no effect on plain text, and the ones that do require messy regex.
I will literally copy-paste into `cat |column -t` and paste back into emacs to get what I want faster than I can coax emacs into aligning a bunch of text into columns.
I really should just write my own function to do that in emacs. :|
I've been typing on a MS Natural Ergo 4000 keyboard for 15 years, and I just switched to a Kinesis Freestyle Edge to get mechanical keys and separation and angle control (the keyboard is split into two parts joined by a cable).
I did not realize how years of typing on the same keyboard would affect moving to another. I keep missing home position. The backspace is slightly further away and keep hitting = instead of BS. The MS rows had a curve to them and this is straight. It feels unnatural.
