For me, each individual's identity has always preceded their genitalia (including myself), so I've always been wary of people/situations for-whom/where that's a "defining/deciding factor".
This wonderful article by @OhTimehin@twitter.com explores a similar instance of that

After a couple months of stable weight, having lost nearly 20kg, today is the first day I use pants my size and... Boy is that a difference.

@ollibaba huh, good to know about the current limitations. The nice thing about TAP though is that it seems easy to expand it.
For what I am going to use it (automated validation of graphical documentation) though it's just the right kind of thing, and this is a field where open standards shine through its absence.
That's why it's particularly useful that TAP is not *just* about testing software, because not everything is software, and software can change.

@feld :-D nice, kyua is part of 's testing suite nowadays, which is pretty cool and leads me to believe my gut reaction to testanything.org was about right ^^.

TIL about testanything.org precisely what I needed for a custom tool that is to be used in contexts fully alien to Software Development.

Bonus: turns out github.com/jmmv/kyua uses it, which means I'm on the right track here :-D.

@pamela :-D I'd recommend adding some warning signs around Agent Forwarding, which can be very useful but also... It opens up to nasty things!
See, e.g.: matrix.org/blog/2019/05/08/pos

(There have been more instances of this, but this is a good writeup and was high-profile enough that people noticed it ^^)

Pulling the plug on a thing I deprecated about 2 years ago and people *still use*. Now I have to think about yet another "graceful" transition.
Jeez... dealing with computers (and people) is just the worst.

Grrr wie soll ich den Tag richtig anfangen, wenn die Tagesschau von gestern nicht verfügbar ist >,<.
Das ist "kritische" Infra :-D.

@june hi ha els (els nuclis/noyaux són relacionats però diferents).
També hi ha Plan9, haiku, Darwin, ...

@viktormadarasz it's valid, just remember that `-T` was added for a reason :-).

@raichoo and 's ifconfig (the ones I know) are just great.
I've even found myself typing ifconfig on Linux these days and getting annoyed at it not being the same.

@LeJax by size I mean dimensions, so: pixelwise :-D.

@LeJax nice instructions! That's precisely how I do it ^^.
Something I like doing though is replacing the Lenovo logo, that can be done by adding a LOGO.bmp or LOGO.gif with the appropriate size to the FLASH directory in the created fat32 partition.

@xtaran X'D dd over ssh! That's both terrible and genius. I've been using zfs send /receive over ssh a lot, which is not that much different in concept, but nicer when it's available :-D.

@aslmx IPv3? :-D That's a good brain trick.

Copying between different remote hosts works without `-3` only if there is already some auth mechanism set up (e.g. with ~/.ssh/config in origin host).
This is something I avoid to keep this risk low: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_

So, yeah :-D sometimes you do want `-3`.

Much has been said about using scp being outdated and how rsync should be preferred over scp, but sometimes I just want `scp -3 host1:stuff host2:stuff`.

Wir haben da mal im letzten halben Jahr eine Firma für Softwareentwicklung gegründet. Wir möchten selbstbestimmt arbeiten, eine respektvolle Unternehmenskultur pflegen & natürlich qualitativ hochwertige Software entwickeln: www.antei.de

War ein langer Weg, erschwert durch die Pandemie aber umso glücklicher sind wir jetzt, dass wir starten können :yayblob:

After a couple of months work I can finally post a bit more about this. We finally got our company up and running 😸 🎉 Happy to work with people who share the same values regarding human interaction and technology. antei.de/
