I can't believe it's already sunday evening. Weekends go by so fast.
Time flies when you are having fun! Love the Halloween invitation poster.

Hello and welcome to this beautiful new week, full of chances and possibilities! How do you all feel on this Monday?
I had a pretty terrible morning that ended with a nap. Things were much better afterwards :)
Just sharing some quote for the day, have a nice week everyone! "Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune." - Jim Rohn
I hope this holds true for Europe as well. I dropped out of my masters this week and going to move from EE to more software stuff at work. Let's go self-education!
Anyone here ever use Chatroulette? I feel like chatting with a random person. Well... I just tried. After a bunch of guys immediately passing on me, one guy sounded like he was reading prose, but kept the same inflection as I tried to talk with him. I had a hard time hearing, and it didn't seem like we would have a good conversation, so I ended the session. was a bit better. Text-only, met a couple of people, but most there want to talk dirty.
IRC is great for chat-only random person conversations.
Looks like you're not using unicode then. You should really strive for unicode. Check out the /etc/locales file for lines ending with UTF-8, for example en_US.UTF-8. You can also check out following wiki page:
Are you using Latin - 1 encoding instead of utf8? Is that a Linux? What is `echo $LANG` give you?
Are there any twtxt users here? (
I cannot get it to work, getting a '''latin-1' codec can't encode character" error when I call twtxt.

Just read this, The best career advice for those who want to work or currently working in the tech industry as "Programmer" or "Software Engineer" or whatever else.
Do I understand correctly that your media is stored redundantly on both drives and one of those is your working hard drive? Are both hard drives always connected to your machine and how often do you do backups?
My OS is installed on a separate SSD. Important files like personal photos are installed in the RAID partition, some also in the cloud. The two hard drives are always connected to my PC as they also contain non redundant files (mostly media) on the other partition.
What's your setup for personal backups? I've just started using restic on an old HDD I found, still looking for a good (cheap) SSD to buy. I think I should use at least two hard drives for backups, maybe even do some fancy RAID... By the way, this post serves as a REMINDER TO DO YOUR BACKUPS!
I have two 2TB harddrives both with 2 partitions. One partition is for various media and the other is a shared software RAID 0 across the two drives.
Hacker News is still getting worse/popular (I forgot when I first started using, I know it was before the Bitcoin whitepaper). Any other similar sites anyone can recommend?
Is it hotter than normal where you are in the world, too?
Last two years broke a lot of weather records... It's really warm now but luckily not much worse than before.
What will the web be like in 5 years?
I wish I knew enough about the internet to provide an authentic answer. Hope it will be better than it was 5 years ago.
I used to think that listening to audio books was "cheating" somehow; I don't really know why. But I am currently listening to a non-fiction book and I am really enjoying it. How do you feel about audio books?
Love audiobooks. I listen to either a podcast or audiobook every night 30m before bed, helps falling asleep too.
