#introductions hi! I'm kate.
I'm a techie burnout, interested in security, software dev, and privacy.
I do things on Windows others find absurd and like to mess around with Linux networking and containers.
I love to road trip and travel, have very eclectic music tastes, and am not much of a video game player.
I'm some sort of nonbinary transfemme [pronouns: she/her or they/them] living in Ohio, USA, described by others as "left-leaning", with opinions on healthcare and infrastructure.
Dell firmware doesn't want to set an emoji asset tag (🍷)
or maybe the Windows utility didn't set it correctly
i wonder what will break in bad ways if i feed it emoji? (a few things do for sure)
don't tell me what I can't do!
hey, you can use emoji for linux network device names!
I should test emails with emoji in the domains
problem: I can't charge my phone and use the Lightning headset the phone came with at the same time, so my phone's battery is now dying
I'm trying to have a video call while screen sharing a game with audio. Haven't found a single application to do this well yet...
a working solution:
* for webcam: Discord
* for screen and game audio sharing: Hangouts (audio
captured through stereo mix recording device)
* for voice: Signal phone call on iPhone, with earbuds underneath my PC headset
I like the idea of having another /usr hierarchy in ~/.local
"Unix for Dummies" was lying on the table at my boyfriend's house. Fell open to this curious page, on which it says that `rmdir` will only delete empty directories, but then goes immediately on to pass a comment that `rd` does not expand to `rmdir` because "rmdir is dangerous enough that you should have to do a little typing if you want to use it."
over a long enough time period, a sufficiently large group of nerds will end up talking about thinkpads
[from discourse front page]
paint the sheds with fire 🔥🚲
thinkpads are overrated
