@discpod So, listening to the discussion in the latest episode about Grace being the Discworld virgin, I had the thought of her being the Discworld maiden, instead. But then I realized that would imply that someone would be the Discworld mother, and the Discworld... er... Granny Weatherwax. Also the fact that only really works for a trio, not a quartet. >_> <_<

Hmm, it has just come to my attention that a website I hosted for a friend hasn't worked for over a year and a half, because the shared host it was on upgraded from a version of PHP which has been EOL since the last ice age, and the gallery script it's built on can't run on newer versions. I am sorely tempted to do something stupid and set up a heavily locked down docker container with the old version of PHP it needs, so I can get it working again.

I imagine the answer is very, right up until a corporation fell afoul of it.

Hmm, I wonder how enforceable a viral license would be. IE, a software license which, by agreeing to it, you also agree to distribute all of your intellectual property under.

Oh, nice. I woke up to a message from some fuck head with a slur in their display name demanding that I switch to pleroma and turn on relaying all posts to all federated servers. For anyone else thinking of sending a similar message, I will happily provide a car fire, if you agree to die in it.

Whee, my instance just temporarily died due to running out of disk space, because the command to automatically clean up remote media has changed twice since I set up the cron job for it, and despite the fact that the command I was running hasn't worked since 2018, it hadn't been generating any errors in the log. :/ Also, I'm a little impressed that I went two and a half years on a 40GB disk without cleaning up, and only now ran out of space.

Since I'm following @BestGirlGrace on here, this particular line of Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song doesn't feel particularly surprising. (Flagged as sensitive because it's a potential spoiler for said anime. Also, people should watch it, it's a really good show.)

Oh, FFS. "Alright, we'll power the datacenter back up at 19:00 on Saturday, we'll need you to be available then to bring it up." 11:00 on Saturday: "Hey, we just powered up the datacenter, where are you?"

Whee, I just found the cause of a problem I've been having with my work laptop for, like, two weeks. Apparently, between a Windows update and a firmware update, something was locking the CPU speed to 800 Mhz. On a 3Ghz processor. :/

I just found out that there's an anime about visual kei vampires coming out later this year. This is not something I realized I needed, until now. I hope it's not terrible.

Ugh. A pushy asshat engineer whined at my manager to add him to my weekly meeting with one of our third party vendors, and just shat all over the meeting, demanding he be in the loop on shit he knows nothing about. It ended with him demanding that I give the vendors access to our systems using my user account. I'm ignoring it for now, but if I hear anything of that sort from my management chain, I'm immediately referring it all to the security team.

Whee, I just ordered a standing desk, 'cause I've been thinking about getting one for a while. Apparently, the website for one of the biggest names in standing desks can't handle non-alphanumeric passwords, or passwords longer than 20 characters, though. In 2021, I do not get how people consider that sort of thing acceptable.

jfc, I went to the grocery store, and there's one checker and the self checkout is closed, at prime time on Saturday. The checkout line is stretched all the way across the store.

I have finally determined what's going to happen at the end of the current WoW expansion: we're going to beat the Jailer inside Torghast, take a wrong turn on the way out, and end up coming out of the Palace of the Dead, to set up new Horde and Alliance settlements in the South Shroud. *nod*

Whee, looks like I'm going to be getting four more root canals, this year.

Welp, I just started my largest print yet. Estimated print time, 45 hours. I also did some math and realized that I'm effectively spending ~$5 for just the supports on this mask. This has me thinking again about buying a filament extruder, so I can recycle that sort of stuff. Though, I'll probably wait on that until at least my PLA scrap box is full.

Bleh, I was just getting used to being able to breathe, and not having an orange tint to all light entering my window. I guess that's done for now. Thanks, wildfires. :/
