in Norway, "up and not crying" is a not uncommon response to "how's it going" type questions, and I feel like that's a very reasonable standard to hold oneself to especially nowadays

I think what's disturbing me so much about these #GPT3 examples is that for the first time we're really seeing that computer programs are optimized not to solve problems but instead to convince its programmer/operator/user that it has solved those problems.

This distinction was almost irrelevant before (when fooling us was harder)... but not anymore.

The distinction isn't really novel; heck, I myself have written about one aspect of it before. But I still find it shocking to see it in action.

Honestly, Who needs vendor documentation when you can copy and paste the warbles of a massive number matrix directly into your router!

Always funny to see a hard drive copy inexorably slowing down as the head moves from the outside of the platter toward the inner tracks

I'm having a vague memory that someone was working on an open source flash player, to try and immortalize the vast chunk of the web that died with the original player. Did that ever go anywhere?

Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in #less.

Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.

Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.

Today our SRE has been tuning the Envoy logs to make them as useful as possible, these will probably be the most critical logs that we will be using over the following months.

Having similar semantic conventions as we have for tracing in #opentelemetry could have even more significant potential than the trace conventions.

I'm looking to see if I can build "Envoy" and prototype some conventions in its OpenTelemetry implementation so that I can make some informed proposals.

Wow, this graph shows how different nixpkgs is in term of number of packages and freshness. I knew this should be the case, but I didn't expect such a gap. repology.org/repositories/grap

Debian could be better, but many packages are abandoned and it is still hard to salvage them (and it's quite more work than an occasional PR to update it).

Also, nixpkgs has a bot to help keeping packages up-to-date, so you just have to test it once there is an update.
