I don't think I ever did a proper #introductions. I'm a 34yo British bloke, married to a wonderful woman and we have a 14 day old baby boy, a 9yo pupper and a 5yo cat. I'm a Network engineer scratching my way further into network security. I've been been on the Fediverse since identi.ca ran on Laconica (a long time ago). I'm a licenced #hamradio op and I dabble in hobby electronics and photography. I am also slowly learning German and getting into gardening to keep these bones moving.
I use #keepassxc daily and I came across mention of a feature called "auto-open" (https://github.com/keepassxreboot/keepassxc/pull/1053) where you can have one database open another. Very handy when you use two databases at the same time like I do. I thought surely it was documented somewhere!? But I cannot find any mention of it! It didn't even make the change log in 2.3.0 when it was introduced. Makes me wonder what other great features are hidden inside??
@xvilo clock's out again
Did a talk about how small decisions to share stuff as FLOSS lead to amazing outcomes 30y on, like this video:
It was a part of an European Space Agency workshop. 🚀 🇪🇺
I was worried that it's not going to fit in among talks about spacesuit design or architecture of habitats planned in lava flow caves on the Moon(!).
I thought there might not be space for the kind of abstract musings about human condition that I had to offer. Luckily, willingness to share is universal.
A day before he turns 20 months my son has made his ever first purchase, an extraordinarily expensive rental of Strictly Come Dancing on Prime Video. In other news I've realised it's time to put pin numbers on everything linked to my bank card. #dadding
Reading Absolute OpenBSD's section on hard disk partitioning and it really is as terrifying as I assumed it would be. How are we in 2019 and still letting an OS worry about drive geometry? It's not even based on physical properties anymore (if it ever was), it's a layer cake of bullshit that should've been obsoleted a generation ago.
@xvilo hi Sem, I've noticed the server time seems to be lagging behind about 36 minutes. The time is now 10:34 but this post's timestamp will disagree.
If you ever wondered what it was like to boot the earliest UNIXen on their original hardware, here's a video from the Living Computer Museum: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5MKwp2uj2k
Our large pumpkin from ALDI turned out to be rotten inside. It's very on-brand for the event but I'm still a bit annoyed I don't get some delicous pumpkin seeds. #halloween
