In light of more ghastly Westminster sleaze stories, I know this is all terribly cliche, but: Westminster is almost uniquely designed to be a training ground for wronguns. Forgetting those at the top, it is a place that gives the mediocre power they don't deserve but can abuse

Basic fear: inflation is at 9% CPI! Galaxy brain fear: They’re still using RPI to set train fare increases and student loan debt - and that bastard is at 11.1%!

If you work for a big company, or a government, take a look at the open source you use, the day to day tooling, and small libraries. You may find something where everything falls apart without it, is maintained by one person out of their own pocket. Do something about that.
curl is 24 years old, runs in some 10 billions installations world and now has a fair amount of sponsors. I'm proposing I no longer have to pay with my own money for the server and instead spend some of our fund on it: curl.se/mail/lib-2022-05/001…

the most consequential figures in the tech world are half guys like steve jobs and bill gates and half some guy named ronald who maintains a unix tool called 'runk' which stands for Ronald's Universal Number Kounter and handles all math for every machine on earth

Always thought that Debian/Ubuntu Preseed was awful, poorly documented rubbish, but the new(ish, but now required) Ubuntu autoinstall method is really taking the crown from it. Shouldn't have to be poking around in your code to figure something out, @Canonical.
The Conservative Party, led by a liar, has unmoored itself from the truth. It derides everything it once stood for, the constitution, the Church, the law. It has nothing to offer but contempt. There’s an election in 16 days. Vote.

Eldest has lost her first tooth, so tonight I get to experience another parenting milestone as the "tooth fairy" retrieves the tooth from under the pillow.

Don’t know what we were doing between 1997 and 2010 but maybe we should give it another go?

My soul left my body today as a student confidently declared that “over 35 year olds don’t use social media - they’re not on the internet”

Me, with every sip of Lemsip. Genuinely don't understand how anyone can drink this atrocity.

24 hours later and I'm still laughing at a scene in Pepper Pig where they're drawing vegetables, and when the teacher asks Pepper what vegetable she's drawn, it's a picture of Daddy Pig watching TV. Absolute comedy gold.
