"Come eat, or it will be cold!", or "I will heat it up for you!" - I wonder where our (grand)parents' concern for *warm* meals is coming from 🤔

This is so much fun to play^H^H^H^Hexperiment with. Queue the wrath of forum members for not having a proper enclosure! 😆

"We didn't call it fuzzing back in the 1950s, but it was our standard practice to test programs by inputting decks of punch cards taken from the trash.

We also used decks of random number punch cards. We weren't networked in those days, so we weren't much worried about security, but our random/trash decks often turned up undesirable behavior.

Every programmer I knew used the trash-deck technique."

-- Gerald M. Weinberg

I've misconfigured power management on my laptop, it did not suspend and my kids discovered the magic of Xscreensaver. It's been keeping them entertained for 30min already.

Running gnome-control-center outside of Gnome (I'm using AwesomeWM) and the damn thing crashes on a panel? Well too bad, it remembers which panel you opened last, so it will keep segfaulting. Use this to reset the last panel so you can get back to settings again: $ gsettings set org.gnome.ControlCenter last-panel ''

After years (!) of watching videos, I finally fired it up yesterday and struggled with the learning curve (I also tried FreeCAD but gave up after 30min trying to extrude a stupid circle). But eventually I managed to come up with a mockup of a portable speaker with batteries using measurements of the components I have.

Following @stux finally brought cat picture balance to my life, but damn it's chewing through disk space quickly:

mastodon=> select a.url as user, sum(m.file_file_size) as bytes, count(m.file_file_size) as posts, sum(m.file_file_size)/count(m.file_file_size) as bytes_per_post from media_attachments m join statuses s on join accounts a on where m.file_file_size is not null group by 1 order by 2 desc; --> 300MB in 2w

Installed on and navigating to offered me to "install" it on my homescreen. I tried that... and it's awesome 🙂 native-like experience (no URL bar, fullscreen) without the need to download any apps.

This expresses my problem with most conspiracy theories so accurately.

@Gargron hi! After a long time I finally brought my server up and running again. However, after several days of uptime, I still do not see/receive any "new" content. Is there any tool to test federation or force a pull of content?

Apparently my ISPs minimum contract duration expired in 1753, around the time when Benjamin Franklin published his kite experiments with lightning/electricity.
