While the Internet Archive does have good APIs, it's still obnoxious that both these orgs are privelidging the github pipeline, thus providing one more incentive to use github.

I'm still waiting BTW, for Software Heritage to provide a way for a git repo not on github to be archived.

I've been waiting for years.

Currently the only way I have to get code into their archive is to get the code into Debian.

I might hop Mastodon hosts again, to get a more useful/interesting to me Local Timeline. Any suggestions?

@directhex when the majority of your toots are xposts, spoilering them is not as useful as it would be if they were less common

@juliank thanks for fixing neomutt #931746. I just re-hit the related #890334. Do you think the maintainers are MIA? Wondering about working on it a bit

I'm really dis-invested in the Doom Community now that I've done zilch for the 25th anniversary of doom 2.

Likewise I'm nearly fully unplumbed from Debian now, too.

I wish every Stallman apologist would Spoiler Warning their toots

My SSH dream:

The best solution I've seen to SSH attacks is NetBSD's libblacklistd.

Log parsing solutions are inherently fragile. But a solution that lets a server program explicitly declare "Hey, this IP is being a jerk, please fubar it" is :flan_hearts:

I truly hope that one of the #OpenBSD devs will develop this itch and make something like it part of #OpenSSH, so it spreads and becomes a standard.

Ah, I'm testing an old version, and is seems only in line-level HTML is broken, not block level. So that's better than I originally thought.

Interesting, fundamental limitation with Pandoc for handling Markdown (or CommonMark) documents: it does not support embedded HTML, which is a key facet of both formats (IMHO)

Did you know that "git checkout -" works much like "cd -" and switches back and forth between two branches?

You're welcome.

Parents: are your kids exchanging vi keymaps?

wtf: one word forward, then to the first 'f'

LOL: insert a new line with a single 'L' just above bottom of screen.

fml: move to one character past the next 'm'

tbh: move to two characters before the next 'b'

dtf: delete to 'f'

Torn between that board and the odroid-h2 which is a really compelling/weird SBC with the same SoC

I think I'm set on the ASRock J4105-ITX as my replacement NAS mainboard but I need to triple check the chipsets for Linux compatibility

"— Unnatural hair colors in woman are a warning signal to stay away,
Its an example Aposematism -the phenomenon of poisonous animals in nature advertising their toxicity and lethality
— Aposematism is there to warn off predators, not sexual partners. If you're repelled by it, it's working."

NAS update: still 5 sec boot loops when cross-wired to my desktop PC's 750W PSU. Strong suspicion the mainboard is a dud.

I have tentatively shortlisted £30.44 of Nintendo eshop purchases to spend my £30 voucher once it arrives
