@enkiv2 @wim_v12e @bhaugen @Sandra @mathew @natecull Yeah I don’t know where this whole notion of SQL being slow and clunky or bloated comes from. SQLite, PostgreSQL, and MySQL/MariaDB have all had engineer-centuries put into them, and they’re rock solid, high-performance databases. They’re incredibly hard to beat. Most “schemaless” databases are extremely immature by comparison.

@norcalgeekdad The easiest solution though might be just configuring the DNS server for their devices to OpenDNS: opendns.com/setupguide/#family

The game is over once they learn how to reconfigure the DNS to or 😁

@norcalgeekdad The key phrase you are looking for is "parental controls". Some software comes with it (e.g. antivirus/firewall suites), you can also configure your router for a wider coverage: openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/fi

In this day and age of all sites using encrypted HTTPS it's no longer feasible to do keyword-based filtering where the router would filter *any* site containing certain keywords, you have to rely on domain filtering.

@adamd I was always curious, why would one ever turn it off?

@wolf480pl ESP32, dual core, WiFi+BT, ultra low-power coprocessor, lots of GPIO pins and the usuals (i2c, spi, ...) and very affordable/easy to get in various dev boards (e.g. with displays, USB charging/programming, LoRa etc.)

@brennen Command Line Interface and "Text UI" (think curses, *Commander, Turbo*).

@cjd Rust seems to allow some amount of compile-time evaluation [1]. Though as they write, "constant expressions may be, but are not guaranteed to be, evaluated at compile time".

@cjd C++. I don't follow the development for the past few years, but IIRC it was meant to be a feature [1][2].

OK, apparently nowadays it's "if constexpr" [3]

It turns out OpenSSH dropped support for "ssh-rsa" since "it's not safe anymore", so I can no longer connect to my router:

> Unable to negotiate with port 22: no matching host key type found. Their offer: ssh-rsa

Fortunately they kept the code in, just disabled by default. Put this in your ~/.ssh/config to be able to connect again:

HostKeyAlgorithms +ssh-rsa
PubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes +ssh-rsa

@claudiom Is it opposite day? Windows having problems with printing, BSD/Linux is fine 😁

@climagic I use "... | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -n 30" so much I think I should create a function for it:

topn() { sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -n ${1-10}; }

I never realized that Idiocracy, the documentary-that-was-not-supposed-to-be, had no release marketing and basically spread by word of mouth.


@lanodan @wolf480pl I'd love to see how you "drag-and-drop" without a mouse. Think Ctrl-C, Alt-Tab, Ctrl-V.
