Looks like there's some help out there already, there's a CVE check in some python2 janky fashion...

🤕 oof, bad day to be a salt consumer

saltexploit.com/

Looks like salt has unwittingly distributed a WORM and is now being subject to crypto-mining backdoors, which is anyones guess what the actual use of these will be for...

> The Salt system is amazingly simple and easy to configure,

Famous last words salt, especially when your docs are some kind of choose your own adventure novel

*sigh*

In depth tutorial for wireguard deployment on 20.04, not a bad read as far as tutorials go

Remember all of those one day gas strikes?

“Don’t buy gas on Monday, let’s make those oil companies choke on their own supply?”

Today oil futures turn negative, and not just a little negative, $37 in the negative.

Oil producers are contracting future production such that they are paying $37 per barrel to have the oil taken off their hands.

It turns out that *one month* of economic slow down and involuntary gas boycotting is what it takes, because this is truly what choking on your own supply looks like.

im looking for queer community/housing in PDX area to move into as soon as is feasible

3 hours until my next block of 3 hour long meetings. Time to jam to some Amon amarth and catch up on code reviews.

I'm jacking in. If I'm not back in 24 hours clear my browser history

@TheGibson @Mainebot I will admit to setting the_system_is_down.mp3 as a monitoring alert sound on more than one system.

I'll level with you all

I'm lazy, and I cruise through a lot of my personal projects

I get bored easily and I put things down and I come back to them weeks or months or so later

And you know what, that's okay. Frequently I put things down because they're too difficult for my current skill level. It might take a few months or so to get over the self loathing of the fact I couldn't solve an issue

I agree with others on here: the only way to learn is to simply dabble around in the discipline area you're interested in, with absolutely no clue about what you are doing, until something starts to stick, and you run with that

I had no idea I actually liked programming until I discovered other languages than imperative ones like JavaScript, Java, C++ and C. By chance I stumbled, after not coding for ... 15 years, upon LOGO again after using it as a child, and then LISP, its granddaddy

Don't pressure yourself so much, and don't be a perfectionist. I keep having to tell myself that. EVENTUALLY I am going to finish the Atari 2600 game I have written in 6502 assembly. That project in particular fills me with guilt.

I have my whole life to finish all these projects - the one about the discrete transistor computer I started in 2013 after recuperating from a bad bout of psychosis. I designed the computer then, and it has taken this long for me to get the money in order to buy the components and understand how I failed over and over in its construction over the years.

Enjoy the journey, and always ask yourself if you at actually enjoying what you are doing. I need to keep reminding myself of this, as well. Just quit doing things that make you feel bad. Do something else. For me, the fastest way out it poverty has usually been a choice to have fun and be in poverty and dodge work that kills my will to live and be happy. I dunno if that actually makes sense, but I honestly believe that if the sale of your labour is making you waste your life away, as much as mine did, just simply don't do it.

You are not your achievements. You will grow tired of your achievements and will eventually forget them and think they are pointless. So just do what you find fun in the moment.

Blah. I hope this was useful to at least one person.

@Catbat 👋 Hello! I didn't see perusing your profile if there were links available to commission you, so i thought i'd ask directly.

Are you available for commission?

Any artists available for commission? I need a 1920x1080 sized mural of "birds and barbarians" for a D&D 5e troupe. Literally of an arakokra tossing a barbarian into a door as of it were a battering ram.

Turn around time on this isn't super pressing, so a good project for an artist looking for a passive gig. (I always tip, please be upfront about your needs and I'll do my best to accommodate)

Boosts welcome, please DM me a link to your profile of work so I can preview your style.
