I am doing Very Important Research: which scifi film features space coffee the most.

Right now my top two candidates are Alien(1979) and Event Horizon(1997).

If you know of films with more/equal appearances of space coffee, please let me know! Boosts appreciated for this Very Important Research.

Good piece on the misuse of the word "viral" in describing the GPL:

TL;DR: The GPL does not "infect" attached pieces of code, so it doesn't make sense to say it has a "viral clause".

If you screw up and include GPL'd code in your proprietary binary, sure, you're in violation of the license. But you don't sign away rights to your own code just by linking a library!

In case you missed it, there's a free open Fediverse alternative to Reddit under construction called Prismo:


You can try the first instance at:

The idea is that each instance is the equivalent of a subreddit, dedicated to a particular topic.

Prismo federates with ActivityPub so you can follow Prismo accounts from Mastodon etc. (The federation isn't completed yet though, so some features are missing.)

Through the magic of `ip addr add` and the pihole docker container, I now have pihole running on the same physical box as my existing DNSmasq

why the fuck did they call it arson when crime brûlée was right there

My kids are at the best age: the one where the thing they want most is to help out. My peanut just made me coffee and toast and insisted I sit and relax while she makes the same for mama

90-minute meetings are sometimes necessary, yes. Please don't call them a "stand-up"

Job search relay, please boost 

Is there a good list of infosec blogs that are less business-oriented and more maker/breaker/hacker focused?

Bonus points for appsec/hardware

Does anyone around here make cool shirts on redbubble or similar? I want to get a few new ones since all my tech conference shirts have holes in them now or are too big. Would also love to support some "local" artists.

Attending today; will be posting about it some over on the bird site, since most of the speakers seem to be advertising Twitter handles

Man, storms messing all the flights up. Chains of delays adding up to almost 4h so far

They're also switching the default shell to zsh. I really hope all of my bash scripts explicitly ask for bash… some of them have been around for a *while*

So macOS Catalina is dropping support for 32-bit apps; they've been deprecated for a while now. I smell a future change to ARM on laptops/desktops
