Amazed that this just happened.

While reviewing old HDDs with Linux VirtualBox VMs, I naturally opened Windows' PowerShell and used "scp" to retrieve data off the VMs for later analysis.

Yes, scp and ssh in Windows work just as they should O.ô.

✉️ Und hier dachte ich mir, mein Briefwahlantrag wäre verloren gegangen oder sonstiges.

Dass WählerInnen im Ausland nicht vom Amts wegen im Wählerverzeichnis eingetragen werden, und dass es gar kein Feedback gibt außer "(keine) Briefwahlunterlagen bekommen", fühlt sich super komisch an.

FTR, @BastilleBSD beats iocage big time, for the very simple reason that it is not Python.

I use Python, I even like it. I wouldn't write a system utility in Python; starting the interpreter every time is a PITA.
By using simple shell scripts, it is both simpler to hack and significantly faster!

I'm finishing my provisioning with @BastilleBSD (TBA soon), the only deal-breaker for me resulted in a PR which I'd very much like some feedback on; it works-beautifully-for-me (tm) with IPv6-only and dual-stack jails.
Reach out in the PR or here.

It's that time again when I see the trends in Open Source software going proprietary in workflow and, de facto, centralising power in Microsoft, Amazon and Google.

These were the error messages, for posterity:

First time 's has bit me in the ass:
pkg autoremove decided that FreeBSD-openssl was to be removed, and suddenly zfs(8) pkg(8) and pretty much anything stopped working.

Luckily from when I patched base's pkg, I knew to run:
pkg-static add alpha.pkgbase.live/current/Fre

Everything is back to normal, but something went seriously wrong there, and I wouldn't know how to reproduce it '-.-.

I wonder if I'm in the wrong when I look at a CV of a "Full Stack Engineer" and basically discard it because it is obvious they didn't put any effort in making it look decent. Care: not original! just decent, any decent-looking template would do.

Then I try to correct for a potential bias, look at it deeper and think "nope, this is all just buzzwords".

Maybe I just dislike most people "in tech".

Contributing to free software requires privilege. Even regular contributors might sometimes find themselves without it.

Time, focus and money. You might find yourself lacking in one of these at various points in your life.

While software projects from startups move like streams, most free software projects move like glaciers. They move slowly but they keep moving for decades.

Being away from a project doesn't mean you have to give it up. You can join back later.

And this Merge Request addresses the bit that I find to be not-well-documented-enough.

Perks of OpenSource and in general ^^.

Minor annoyances so far, unless specified they are documented with decent work-arounds:
- bunch of .pkgsave files when pkg detects the file existed previously
- duplicated rc-files (due to .pkgsave) --> things run twice on boot (awkward)
- duplicated .ko files (due to .pkgsave) --> modules "try to load twice" when needed (awkward)

- This is documented, but not with this perspective: Performing a system upgrade to a new version with pkgbase is a tad awkward due to the ABI change.

Testing for , so far so good. Particularly using @meena's unofficial repo (alpha.pkgbase.live ) has been a breeze.

I know I could build and run my own repo, but she is a wonderful community member and I am not a fan of rebuilding all the things just because (e.g. these days it is hot enough in Barcelona without compiling :-D).

Accidentally upgraded a bunch of machines to 13.0-RELEASE-p2 without being aware that p2 was out X-D.

Dolibarr running on 🎉 (with based provisioning, because if you do it once, you do it twice).

I'm actually a tad surprised at how well Dolibarr
works in general.

Had a couple issues with how it expects the SMTP credentials to be able to send email from anyone, which is a tad absurd, but I managed to add a couple hacks to fix that.
