I watched John Wick 3. It wasn’t great but the real stars were the dogs. I love puppy dogs and barking and biting puppies are super cool in that movie.

Supporting IBM Informix makes me feel like a sad Linux Wizard. Old. Grizzled. Sad. And my spellbook is full of legal speak and agreements.

Been working my way through an operating systems book (ostep.org) because I didn't study CS. I'm really liking the way they walk you through how we got to modern systems - they start with a set of unrealistic asuumptions, build a system, then slowly relax the assumptions one by one to get a realistic system. (1/2)

I wish there was a webpage completely dedicated to people posting pictures of their retro computer and gaming rigs to peruse with how-to’s and community and stuff but also is for sure not reddit. :dreamcast:

William Gibson criticized Cyberpunk 2077. Predictably, the subreddit for the game got stupid about it and insulted him.

But this has to be my favorite string of comments from the whole thread:

I can’t remember if I have Duke Nukem for the Sega Saturn but if I don’t I need it. Really want to play it for some reason. I know for a fact I have SpaceJam and that is always worth a few minutes of play.

What really doesn't make sense about the #Firefox expired cert is that it disables extensions that were already installed and in use.

Imagine if an apt signing key expired, and so it deleted every package on your system and killed all the processes.

Why would they design it to fail this way?

@retro64XYZ never mind. Firefox just mistakenly used an out of date certificate so everything was blocked. Cool.

What the hell happened to all my Firefox addons???!

Apple Is Telling Lawmakers People Will Hurt Themselves if They Try To Fix iPhones

Sometimes I take Arch and Manjaro for granted. I was asked for an alternative to virtual box and recommended kvm/qemu with virt-manager. Their Debian based distribution didn’t have a copy in their package manager. Ouch.

I will be speaking to people about how Shodan.io can be used to conduct assessments and monitor for flaws in their infrastructure security. I think this will be my largest speaking event to date. Very excited.

Every one is upgrading and I am just sitting here waiting to run pacman -Syu... Is Arch still cool? Manjaro? Should I just do Gentoo?
