uh, nice, the Kernel package in Arch can now handle zstd-compressed initrds. 🎉

OMG, am dying!!!

Someone used the bug GitHub refused to fix, that allows you to add a commit to a repo you don’t control... to upload YouTube-dl to the DMCA request repo on GitHub.

Just got Fenix, the new mobile Firefox, replacing the old version. It's pretty well made, well thought-through UI-upgrade compared to the previous version. Very good impression so far, would recommend (either officially by Mozilla or as "Fennec" from f-droid).

I again came to like the systemd-tooling. Added a custom kernel (and mistyped the filename when placing the file) and according systemd-boot-entry. Not only does systemd-boot sanity-check the existence of all required files to boot (and hence not let me boot into the broken entry), bootctl list lists all entries and specifically tells me the problem, including colormarking and error message right at the line of error for an error had otherwise probably taken me an hour or more to find.

Heute der vorläufige Abschluss unserer kleinen Reihe zu Rechten, Möglichkeiten und Grenzen des BfDI am Beispiel von #PDSG und #ePA (bfdi.bund.de/pdsg) als Gegenpunkt zu Falschinformationen. Als letzter Vergleich der mit dem Helden der frühen Jahre meiner Kinder :-)

Locking down software with AppArmor is a very interesting endeavour indeed, you find out so many things. For example that the slack desktop client rightout refuses to open any graphical anything if it doesn't have read-access to /etc/lsb-release, and you also notice which of your software, if denied something it wants to read, goes really, *really* bonkers, retrying literally every second... I see the denies just scrolling by in dmesg -w ...^^ (including a line "250 callbacks suppressed"...)

Checking the filling level of a filesystem while coping stuff onto it... it's kinda cool that this works and kinda ugly at the same time :D

watch -n 10 "df -h | grep mnt | sed s/\ \ \ /\ /g | sed s/\ \ /\ /g | cut -d ' ' -f3"

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

PSA: the new git 2.28 now allows to specify the name of the default branch via "git config --global init.defaultBranch main" for example, setting it to "main". Nice it landed (and finally useful names default branches without template hacking \o/).

TIL about Neovim's "inccommand" option! When you set it to "nosplit", you'll get a preview of what a substitution will do while you're typing it! :O

Pokemon-Theme rendered inside Windows Task Manager.... großartig^^


if anyone wants native socket activation for Grafana (code is already ready-for-merge), there is an issue you could mention that you'd like to have it. :)
