I just googled for 2009-era DeviantArt screenshots, and the nostalgia hit me like a freight train. In the late 00s I would spent most of my free time there.

@stfn I used to frequent digitalblasphemy.com all the time for cool backgrounds. Both sites are/were awesome af.

Someone has to say it: Replacing the default web browser right-click menu with "features" of your little web app should be a crime punishable by up to 1 year without access to a computing device.

Any sysadmin who examines their public mail server logs will notice an interesting set of attempted e-mail address login attempts, over time.

I've noticed the typical dictionary attacks (admin / backup / test / etc.), addresses referring to usernames I use that are unique to specific platforms (oof), and recently, a variation of one of my primary aliases. They took care to insert a dot, classically common in corp, and other environments.

@yakkoj It's very nice to have the control, flexibility and visibility that I do.

@stfn What's your method? I've used youtube-dl in the past but it seems it's a cat-and-mouse game with YT blocking their tool.

Today I made glazed tofu, and it was insanely good. I dipped tofu pieces in potato flour, fried them, and then made the glaze from soy sauce, honey, garlic and ginger. Very simple to make, very tasty.

I used the recipe from Jadłonomia, a well-known Polish culinary writer: https://www.jadlonomia.com/przepisy/tofu-zmieniajace-zycie/

Filesystem permissions have always been one of my favorite sysadmin things.

So naturally my next article is, "How to Use Filesystem ACLs (Access Control Lists) on Linux". 😎

It'll be published on Friday! I'll link to it when it goes live.

For anyone who still thinks we shouldn’t prosecute Trump and his co-conspirators because their January 6 insurrection failed, consider this: there is no such thing as prosecuting a successful insurrection.

@Strandjunker Anybody still on his side is far beyond reasoning with. We must continue to work toward peace and democracy, but unfortunately, also prepare for war.

I have almost decided to start 2024 with a fresh Linux install, and this time I will go with Debian. New year, new me, new OS.

@stfn I've been using Debian as my daily driver for over a decade. It's never let me down!

@stfn Fluxbox. I'm sort of a minimalist / utilitarian type so it's perfect for me.

lns,
@lns@fosstodon.org avatar

@stfn I love XFCE for vanilla installs. i3 is great for a tabbed wm, definitely takes some getting used to. I love using it on my older Thinkpad. I mainly use fluxbox because I've used it since 1999 (well, it was 'blackbox' then).

Today a short but fun exercise. I exported a model that I taught yesterday, and embedded it into a simple Django app. Now I can upload an image using a web form, and I get a result informing me if there is an passenger plane, a drone, a rocket or a fighter jet on that image. All in very little code. Impressive.
