My GPG key expired at 10:10 UTC today, 12 hours after finding out @mwl had all remaining copies of his PGP & GPG book destroyed. If there is a god of encryption, I invoked and angered it yesterday.

The book is so obsolete that 75% of it is useless and/or wrong. No point in warehousing or remaindering them.

5000 copies were printed, less than 3000 sold. My least successful book.

I do miss when MTV used to play music videos. I even miss VH1, for godsake.

Is this what getting old means?

It means you want to jam to pretty pictures without having to make decisions. Decisions are hard.

Spent an hour debugging why Thunderbird wouldn't work for submission to my mail server, and finally realized:

the bad password I entered and reentered?

blocklistd(8) works. It works super well.

TFW your spouse's iMac has 20Mb(!) free out of 2Tb because they tried to use Adobe Cloud for something and now all attempts to reboot keep hanging (filesystem is okay, though) so the next step is to try for Target Disk mode and a cable to a laptop in order to delete cached junk and logfiles until it will boot enough for them to clean up properly …

UNIXen have never been great about coping with full disks/SSDs, but this is a new nadir, and fuck you very much, Adobe Creative Suite.

Adobe is an atrocity that disguises itself as an abomination.

Half of me wants to write some fanfic, the other half just wants to go to bed and hide under the covers.

My own person two-wolves problem. The third wolf is running around in a circle, snarling at its own tail. I think that one's the Revision Wolf.

The writeup for the "Run Your Own Mail Server" says that the book is at the copyeditor.

Which means I have nine days to get the book to the copyeditor. :flan_yikes:

Apparently the April/May FreeBSD Journal came out while I was overwhelmed? It contains my platform-agnostic advice column, "We Get Letters."

https://freebsdfoundation.org/march-april-2024-we-get-letters/

Kindness is bait.

While nobody can STOP me from writing an advice column, I am always amazed that the FreeBSD Journal wants to PUBLISH them.

Aren't they trying to, like, lend credibility to their operating system???
