@yetiops @rysiek I run some FreeBSD VMs and want to use Ansible to manage them. I can’t find a getting started repo to clone. Something where it’s got some basic rc.conf stuff in a playbook and some basic package inventories and such. All the docs seem to start me from a blank sheet of paper. Is there a basic demo repo somewhere to get started?
@Edent I agree entirely. It bit me once. I was signing up for a mobile phone plan in the UK. I gave accurate billing details (name, address) but they asked for my birthdate. I gave a fake one. Why does my mobile phone company need my birthday? Well, they do a credit check. They declined the online application and I had to call in and talk to a human to straighten it out.

Some time ago, I posted why I never watch TV news. At the bottom of the blog it says "Got any reasons to watch TV news? let me know in the comments." Until now there was no way to comment. :) So now you can. https://blog.paco.to/2014/why-watch-tv-news/
I just refreshed a blog post about my favourite format for the bash command prompt: https://blog.paco.to/2017/my-favourite-bash-prompt/
@dredmorbius @natecull Sitting in a hotel in Texas this morning. All the news is about the Iowa caucuses. The actual story is that we don’t know the results. So the story is that the information doesn’t exist yet. So we have nonstop, wall-to-wall syllables about the fact that it doesn’t exist. There’s literally no information (about the process, the failures or about the results) and they can’t stop talking....
@natecull we opened this can of worms. Now we lie in it.
It’s easier than ever to have your own site.
If you want help, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just reply and I’ll help.
It’s super evident that platforms that exist aren’t going to help you out. So let’s stop sharecropping on platforms that harms us and our own. (https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/9368a4f7-395c-4439-9157-dd977aac433d)
