god@heaven:~ $ ssh root@humanity
(ssh) root@humanity:~ # mknod /dev/brain c 254 0

Surprisingly, this command still fails to return 0 on a lot of the currently available hosts.

    Hmmm.
    shutdown -h

    @juneeighteen "kill -9 $(pidof muggles)" 🙃

    Shutting down the host is a bit excessive, i'll suggest sudo neuter to remove the hosts ability to push or pull to others repositories

    @Condor Okay Draco! Terminating all mudbloods.

    @YouAreAPIRate that actually sounds like a really good alternative... No merging or forking for dem muggles!!! :v
  • 3
    @Condor then again, are developers fit for repopulating the planet after muggles become infertile? Sure, everyone would just need to fuck as much as others fuck with their code, but will that be enough?

    @YouAreAPIRate I'd love to git merge with a developer girl like @Root (:
    (keep in mind that I'm drunk atm so forgive my bluntness plz.. she's a fellow misanthropic INTJ which really excites me to be honest)

    @Condor i'll make sure you'll never forget this message :P
    But "in vino veritas" and that works with beer too, you know?

    @YouAreAPIRate hehe, vodka + fruit juice cocktail right now :P
    And yeah sure, haha. Let's just hope that I won't regret expressing this particular comment :')

    @Condor haha 😊

    @Condor try these:
    "In my heart you're @Root" and something more direct: "Can i have @Root-access?"
    This is perfectly stupid and stupidly perfect

    @Root glad you took it like that :)
    But ehm, let's do a pull request just to be certain :P

    @YouAreAPIRate that's actually an amazing pickup line.. @Root, will you be my system's @Root? <3

    I didn't get it.

    Have a ++ for the code anyway.

    @Floydian it's sysadmin stuff. Basically it'd SSH from one computer into another, and execute some command there in the next line. In this case, it'd create a special device - a character-based device node called /dev/brain that's controlled with driver 254 (which is arbitrary and the highest number that can be assigned to it in 7-bit for compatibility reasons) and minor device number 0 (because probably nothing else will be running under driver 254 anyway).

    My understanding of the special block devices and mknod is limited, but I hope this helps :)

    These resources have helped me a lot in understanding the mknod command:
    https://ibm.com/support/...
    https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/... (the point I'd like to add here is that driver 254 is often unused, similar to how 192.168.1.254 will probably be unallocated in your network)
    http://tldp.org/LDP/lpg/node17.html (mostly C but this has helped too)
    I believe that there was something from nixCraft on the matter as well, but I couldn't find it again.

    @Condor can I add you to my devrant stalkers list?
  • 3
    @fuck2code No.. no... No!!! What have I done?! 😰
    I should've abided by the principle of "don't drink and @Root".. including proposals 😖

    *proceeds to mentally kill -9 himself*

    ☹ Poor @Condor.
    I was sleeping.
  • 2
    @Root 😔
    I feel like such an idiot.. perhaps I should create a booze-tester program to test me and reroute devrant.com to somewhere else when I'm drunk..
    and root@me:~ # mknod /dev/brain c 254 0 as well 😅
  • 2
    @Condor I think I could help with that :)
  • 2
    @fuck2code that'd be really cool 😁

    Not sure whether I can build this in the near future though.. my servers still need some maintenance, GDPR is biting me in the ass lately, and there's still some circuits to finish as well as some upgrades to my workbench that still need to be completed first. I hope that it'll be done in a couple of weeks but I can't tell for sure.

    @Condor i'm no expert in electronics, after all i'm a sw dev. But i'm pretty sure you can get an alcohol meter for an arduino and you just have to breathe into it. Then we could use Serial.write with the arduino. You'd have a program listen on a port and when it sees you are drunk it adds a line to redirect devrant in the hosts file to sth else. I won't test it but @Floydian would have an excuse to get drunk.

    @Condor but it can wait :). Whenever you have time hmu

    @fuck2code @condor hahaha... I don't drink...

    But I heard testing.. 🤔

    Bring it on bitches...
  • 2
    @Floydian we'll let you know if it needs some drinking *ahem* *ahem* I meant testing ofc
  • 2
    @Floydian all for scientific and testing purposes of course 🍻🥂
  • 2
    @fuck2code @condor sure. I am just a mention away.

    Fuck!! Wait... No... Don't mention me..
  • 3
    @Condor @Floydian @fuck2code

    I heard mention of testing alcohol?
    Very interested 😊
  • 2
    @Root now that's interesting.. which testing frameworks would you recommend?
    Also, sure thing @Floydian :v

    @Condor I'm a fan of the ColdShot testing suite myself, though MixedDrink is another worthy choice. You seem to be a fan of that one already. Maybe we should stay with it?
  • 1
    @Root yeah, MixedDrink is really good.. version 37.5 (codename Zaranoff) seems to be working well :3
    Never heard of ColdShot though.. what's that?

    Chilled Vodka, with optional onion (or pickle).
    Definitely recommend.
