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.
First-ever Gitea pull request from a remote instance!!! 🎉🥳
I've been waiting for this moment for months now!
The code hasn't been pushed to https://gitea.com/Ta180m/gitea 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: https://gitea.com/Ta180m/gitea/issues/7)
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.
