In my personal cheat sheet of docker notes, my entry for "docker system info" says, "Reminds you that docker is really complicated." Still makes me laugh.

I love Alpine Linux. So lightweight. I observe, however, that the X86-64 docker image has grown 27% in size in the past 17 months. It is the way of the world.

@ScottMortimer On the positive side, AWS doesn't (seem to) drop support for services, stranding users. Unlike Google. Or perhaps I have this wrong...?

"I'm finally making progress on adding end-to-end encryption for direct messages in Mastodon." – Gargron, head elephant

I wonder what experience Gargron has re encryption... :blobthonkang:

2020 began with koala bears burning alive and went downhill from there.

I'm telling you all, if you don't post more often, you're going to see more of this. :blobthonkang:

@WPalant I like that theme. Problem though: I see your posts are relevant to my work, so now I've got extra reading to do. 😉

@httpeter Maybe hedge your bets with Flutter, to cover both iOS and Android?? [I'm a backend guy, so what do I know!]

So many bad takes on zoom acquiring keybase.

Also: almost no o̶n̶e̶guy will admit they are wrong on social media. Best to stand down when you realize they are poorly informed.

While acknowledging Google Play's new terms I recalled the developers' conference that announced last week it would be held inside a virtual game. I'm glad I write more code than terms of service!

@jerry We all know that "programmers" have a built in advantage re practicing social distancing ;-)

Stay safe, Jerry.

@maxeddy At first I read, "Right channel is still out. Bleach" and thought, no, no that's not going to help. 😜

@R10T But I am chagrined to learn from your blog post that immediately below where I usually enter my alias commands is a nicely commented reference to .bash_alias. I had NO IDEA there was this standard place for my alias commands. Thx!

@R10T Nit picking old guy here. There are not two kinds of alias. Using your term, there are only temporary. A clue to this is where your wrote "the unalias command works for temporary and permanent aliases". unalias does not persist across sessions. As soon as you log out & back in, the alias exists again.
