Eliminate state. If you can’t, make it visible.

I do this all the time. Ever get questions like “does this include cancelled orders?” Add a dashboard filter with exactly one preselected choice: “Cancelled - NO”

In Looker this is called always_filter

Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in #less.

Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.

Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.

A photo that I did not take somewhere in Japan taken this winter. Snowboarders would call it Japow, I understand they get huge dumps in the mountains but the mountains don't have enough steep sections to truly enjoy the deep stuff.

I've worked in a lot of different sciences and what I've discovered is that each science is its own slightly bizarre alternate reality where the scientific method turned out differently.

Instance admin just lost their job, might need help 

Mstdn.social is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

However, by happy coincidence, Stux had just set up a hosting company. If you need web hosting, domain names etc please consider using Stuxhost so that Stux can continue working:

this porting stuff just isn't fun. cheers to everyone who has grinded out a port -- even once! three cheers to those maintaining ports.

complicated build systems make fixing 'trivial' issues tedious at best. I know what is wrong but heaven help me to find the right knobs/env vars to set in the right places to make it work.

Am now yeeting Excel and doing it in Perl as I should have done in the first place.

Note to young people: “Perl” is a programming language used by old people.

Note to old people: “yeet” is a term used by young people to mean “hurl at high velocity”.

Note to people of all ages: Excel is not a database.

Update: we just got a call from a Google VP who explained the suspension was triggered by a report of extremely abusive content accessible on the matrix.org server. Our trust & safety team had already acted on it, and the app should be reinstated shortly.

Don’t be Google

Google has lost touch with their roots. What they did today is the equivalent of banning a web browser because it could access unapproved sites.

Unfortunately, the only effective appeals process is raising a stir on social media. twitter.com/element_hq/status/
