juxtaposition of tech recruiter spam (fuck off forever already aws) and fedi friends struggling to find jobs is really grating
not that i would encourage anyone to enjoy a gafam career but i do wish i could help people to take bezos' money as a step up to better employment
especially since recruiters are so crocodile-tears about being able to find workers (hire and train juniors then, you shitheels)
if anybody wants me to give their contact info and resume to assholes lmk
come onnnnn it's already tomorrow on the east coast
@pbx i chose "dedicated office room," but it's not dedicated to my employer; i don't have separate spaces for work versus non-work computer-touching
(i do however have separate user accounts on my workstation for myself and my worksona)
me next month: somebody's got mondays all up in their butt-crack
all my coworkers: excuse me!! what!!
me: you know... "a case of the mondays," isn't that what that means?
me: i can't remember who told me that but i'm sure it's true
oh maybe these are both only the first book (gideon the ninth), first half and second half
started a page to document my kleks-alike keyboard build:
no recent progress there since last toot, but i felt an impulse to begin collecting "project progress logs" into my website, and more photos too
i want to do one for the xmpp server i set up too, despite nothing really novel or crafty going on there
just to say "i replaced shitty gchat with prosody, conversations and conversejs and it's fantastic and i love it and you should try it"
is there a xianxia drama where the protagonist can do martial arts and flick ethereal swords from the keys of their heavenly spiritual instrument, the roland tr-808
finally finished the last episode of the untamed and arrrrrghhhh
thank goodness the third mdzs book is supposed to be out this tuesday
well i think my workarounds for this quoted-path complexity haven't left me with a giant remote-execution security hole in my static git forge
so now instead of a reinvented wheel replacement for git-shell i have a wrapper around a bunch of commands invoked by git-shell 👍
- finish off unimplemented commands
- clean up site publication
- gist-like users-only pastebin, pastes create repos
- ideas for pull request workflow
- blog writeup
@m455 i've heard that glib is not forwards-compatible but it is backwards-compatible, so the other way around should work: if you compile your static binary against the older libc it should be able to run on both the systems with the older and the newer version of libc installed
also here's how i compile rust programs against an older libc, i run cargo build in a docker container based on an older debian release than the one i'm running:
never expected the most difficult programming challenge i'd face in months would be safely unquoting a string in a shell script!
writing a "simple" wrapper for git-shell that manipulates and tests the repository path, which "is always quoted with single-quotes"
i don't want to 'eval' or otherwise execute it, in case it contains "; rm -rf /" or something
most succinct solution i have so far is to give up on shell and do it with regex in a better language
I make software.
