Here's an awesome tool that let's you live-preview markdown files as you edit them: github.com/joeyespo/grip

I use for all my notes but sometimes its nice to render out your markdown so you can see how it looks.

> In this way, the concept of digital privacy shares similarities with weighty crises like climate change. Both are what the theorist Timothy Morton calls “hyperobjects,” a concept so all-encompassing that it is impossible to adequately describe [...] which invite skepticism because their scale is so vast and sometimes abstract.
> At its heart, privacy is about how that data is used to take away our control.

Yes!

Been doing some searching and reading about and middleware. Really excited to play with it tomorrow 😁

#JOE (Joe's Own Editor) is an easy to use #terminal text #editor.

JOE is very lightweight, with the executable coming it at a mere 300 kB. JOE isn't light on features, however.

JOE simplifies many tedious tasks with emacs-like Lisp scripting support. It also features many simple quick commands, which can jump to the matching brace, search the buffer, etc.

JOE can also emulate several other text editors.

While all the news is about a burning cathedral in France: "An oil spill in Borneo that began over the past weekend has now spread across an area greater than the city of Paris and is heading out to the open ocean, the Indonesian government said."

Let's see if I can make using Firefox stick this time...

"Amazon... is a fair and responsible employer without collective worker agreements"

It's really fair when one guy at the top has $150,000,000,000 and a tiny handful of ultrarich white guys elect fellow wealthy 'big-brain' guys to a board to make all decisions regarding worker conditions, pay, and what to do with profit (give 99.9% to themselves).

Capitalism is a warcrime, a global humanitarian crisis that must be overthrown.

Huh, weird... I can connect to the VPN from work, but when I then try to SSH into anything from there it dies :( They must be doing something to block / filter it. Lame.

Rescuing some pictures off of this REALLY old netbook. My father-in-law thought they were gone forever because Windows XP no longer turned on. One bootable Linux thumb drive and external HDD later and the pics are safe.

We took the kids (and pup) to the ALS Associations Easter egg hunt today. It's safe to say that every-bunny had a good time 😍 🐰🐣🐣

Woo! Got it working this morning. For my next trick I'm going to add another service to HAProxy 😁

This stuff might seem trivial to some, but it's making me heckin excited 🎉

Okay, so I've got SSL termination working on the HAProxy, with forwarding the decrypted request on to Nextcloud. Now to figure out re-encryption before forwarding so Nextcloud doesn't complain.

Spent the evening trying to get working in @bsdrocker's home lab. Was not successful. Going to try on a smaller scale again this weekend and see if I can figure out where I went wrong.

Also we didn’t just observe the supermassive black hole once and were fine with that; we viewed the black hole over several days of observation, so we watched the gas/dust disk’s dynamics change quite rapidly. The disk is orbiting at about 1000km/sec [~600mi/sec] and nearly 90 Earth masses of material falls in every day. Early data is even suggesting the jet of material escaping before the event horizon may be pushing the black hole, moving it away from the center of M87.

It's not just JS. It's computers in general. It's a constant game of staying up to date with how to do the same old things. Take Linux. You used to be able to just run some init scripts to restart services, and check your logs in /var/log, but now it's systemctl and journalctl all of a sudden. Also, you're apparently not supposed to use ifconfig anymore? Such changes are completely pointless to 99% of the users, for whom the old way worked just fine. It's just one more thing to remember.

If you have something to say that’s so long it needs 8 toots to say it, maybe you should just write a blog post? 😉
