I need like a therapist, only rather than helping me understand my problems, I've already got most of that sussed out, so someone who's job it is to help people figure out how to solve them, and then actually help solve them when the person can't do it themself.

It's the main reason why I don't go to therapists. I've had 2 in the past and I learned a little bit, but now I can just figure out what my problems are and their causes myself. I just can't solve any of them rip.

How many times do you start writing emails to ask people for things and change who the recipient is multiple times?

eg: First to a group list, then to one or two people, then to just one person. All while you type more of the email.

Just me? k.

Weird how we've allowed privately held institutions to redefine "Open" and "Free"

Is there a #coop that provides VPN with Low latency to the Oakland fiber network?

My Ideal network topography let’s me VPN to my home office server, but I would rather pay a coop to manage the uptime than maintain the uptime myself.

"woo the internet is dying, now we gotta make a new one just for techies and nerds just like it was in the 90s" is a bad take.

the internet and whatever comes after it needs to be accessible.

"normal" people aren't killing the open web, capitalism is.

It’s #InternationalMensDay.

Today, I want men to think about how they comfort each other when they learn that one of their bredrens is going through something. Often, what some men in our lives truly need is another man to talk things through with.

if your Linux "cat" command gets stuck and you need to cancel it, you must run "killall -9 cat" because the process has 9 lives

The Open in Terminal and .localrc bits deserves some explanation: I have bash configured with a custom shell function that runs from .bashrc. It looks at the current directory for a file named `.localrc` when bash is first loaded and if found imports it, then recursively climbs the directory tree doing the same until it reaches $HOME.

Since I use `~/Projects/$ORG/$PROJECT as my directory layout`, this gives me per-project custom shell environments.

Why did I wake up at 5am eastern? I went to bed around 9:30/10. That's not enough. Now I'm tired at 7:30.
