unix history & women 

It makes me sad that the women who are mostly responsible for making Unix on personal computers possible aren't talked about much, because of figures like RMS & Torvalds (and whoever he argued with on usenet - Andy comes to mind) coming to dominate history.

I know shockingly little about Lynne Jolitz, despite her being pivotal to affordable Unix on the i386 being possible.

I know that there were women involved with the development of Coherent but I'd have difficulty even naming them. (seems connected that most of the early 386 Unixes were developed by family business?)

The old Bell Labs documentaries always make it seem like most of the earliest Unix users were women as well.

Who hasn't dreamt of creating a software that'd run in space? In <24h, @SpaceX will transport the @Endurance_Cube into orbit. It runs my team's (@openshift for devices) and enables school children to upload code for accessing the sat's sensor data @redhatopen

First-ever Gitea pull request from a remote instance!!! 🎉🥳

The code hasn't been pushed to yet since it's incredibly messy, but I'll clean it up tomorrow and also submit a draft pull request to upstream Gitea.

(Technical implementation information:

Next time someone says CSS is not a programming language, tell them to disable JavaScript and visit then explain that 😀

Back in 2012, Ubisoft accidentally added everyone as CC on a marketing email.

Long story short, someone hit Reply All and 10 years later the email thread is still going strong and I think that's beautiful.

Did you know that you can set 2 or more remotes with the same alias and so push to both (or more) of them at the same time when doing a git push?

That way you can push to gitlab, gitea and github in a single command

took me way, waaay to long to realize. :blobcatnotlikethis:
