If someone asks you to explain the gap in your resume, just say "I can't answer that without violating an NDA."

It's a really cool way to tell them to fuck off. They don't have to know that the NDA was issued by you to you, and signed by you on behalf of you.

so most consumer-grade firewall/routers that can gigabit are "wifi 6"

i've been despairing that there's little support for those devices yet in openwrt

realization: i don't care much about wifi 6, i care about gigabit

at&t's wifi+router+ont has a 2.5 gigabit ethernet port

so, i want:
- openwrt compatible router
- not necessarily wifi
- with an sfp port capable of multi-gigabit
- some gigabit ethernet ports

lmk if you found this already pls kthx

I've spent a bunch of time recently fixing up my blog setup, and it's finally starting to shape up:
musings.flak.is/avoiding-ds-st

For the things that meet the eye, there is new fancy pull quotes, syntax-highlighted code snippets, automatic image resizing and multi-image galleries, auto-playing-videos-as-GIFs — things that sound like table stakes, but none of which come easily for a simple markdown-to-html blog engine.

when you drive your car up a long mountain road and when you finally park and get out it you can feel the heat coming off it and hear small tings and pops as the engine cools down and it smells a bit weird and burnt, that's my brain rn

oh, you know, just in a repl on the live production database so i can surgically remove django's knowledge of having run this migration step, as you do

tech conferences should be wall to wall revolutionary organizing but nope its just kubernetes

made a pull request for #freedoom that adjusts key graphics to be more colorblind friendly. red keys have a horizontal line on them, yellow keys a vertical line, and blue keys an X shape.

also adjusted skullkey icons to have horns and shapes like actual skull keys. #accessibility

tyvm @rek for sending me down this wikipedia-path

a hot lazy sleepy angry stinky mechanical being that eats bugs and lays eggs is 

rancorous, malodorous, languorous, insectivorous, slumberous, oviparous, glamorous, and ferrous

sometimes i feel like conveying to someone the idea that they deserve this maximum-intensity heart-felt thumbs-up

but what's that? you think, because of our shared values and interests, that we should be friends?

i mean, yeah of course in an alternate timeline we are bffs for sure but who the fuck realistically has time to have friendships

just accept this massive vote of approval and gtfo and leave me alone okay

it's a fucken rollercoaster

you ever actually try to put each egg in its own basket? it's a huge hassle and you look ridiculous carrying all of them.

and now i must attempt to unlearn this information because it's definitely funnier to imagine my artist friends squeezing their creative works out in egg form

til i have years ago conflated «oeuvre» with «oeufre» and convinced myself that when the french speak of an artist's work they are for some reason calling it their egg

as if Mozart bestowed his complete oeuvre upon the public using his prehensile ovipositor

alternate history where it was the american egg board instead of the national pork board pushing viral marketing for their product, making eggs the pop culture fashion of the late '00s, reddit full of me-too bros waxing poetic about how great eggs are, bros wearing t-shirts about eating eggs, cooking all kinds of inappropriate foods in egg, "egg mania," toxic bros questioning the masculinity of bros who dislike eggs, people singing that refrain from the Beauty and the Beast Gaston song,
