VLC is the best program.

1. It's free.
2. It plays everything.
3. It's versions are named after discworld characters.

Using Discord for your Open Source project. I hate it.

I was QA for date & time handling at my last job. This speaks to me

tired: running wayland because it's better than x

wired: running wayland so i have an excuse for not doing screen share in work calls

@sir I don't think so. I don't mind the long identifiers. I would like a way to bring the `example` identifier into scope, not just use foo.

@nolan I've used it basically since I discovered it (can't remember when).

I think it's great! Thank you so much for all your work.

COVID vaccine very good news 

The first paper on a COVID vaccine is out, and initial indications are VERY good. While we don't know how well it protects, the people injected with it wind up with MORE antibodies then people who actually GOT COVID, which is a good sign.

And this is just the first vaccine paper out: Heck, THAT COMPANY ALONE has *four* in the works.

Look, can we just cut it out with the constant attempts at SSH access across the entire IPv4 space? I'm trying to read my logs, and you aren't getting in.

@sir Thanks! Lower N of packages and binaries, but basically the same system, therefore, to no one's surprise. The same results.

@sir This is kinda the opposite of what you were talking about, but... checks out.

make 'git init' produce repos with an initial branch named 'main' not 'master' 

t=~/.config/git/template/
mkdir -p $t
git config --global init.templateDir $t
echo ref: refs/heads/main > $t/HEAD
