Last night I wasted over an hour fiddling with efibootmgr, because newly created boot-entries got removed after a reboot.
Turns out, my latops uefi auto deletes entries with a missing loader and it recognised them as such, because I had a typo in the kernel-name.1
OK, got send into 1 week quarantine, since my class might have had contact with an infected teacher last week.6
To the ones that are/were students at a trade school, particularly in Germany.
Is it normal, that most IT students there are such dumbfucks?7
Fuck Coronavirus and fuck the person, responsible for the outbreak.
The local commiccon, linux-days and my working-period at a location on the other side of Germany got canceled.
My complete weekend just got annihilated.10
The fuck is this shit?
The upper link is the actual link to the exherbo-project, a new source-based linux-distro.
The lower link forwards to a broken site, largely copying text from the original, while adding certain paragraphs about easy encryption and data-wiping to hide incriminating material.
Did someone from Gentoo went mad, because someone's developing an actual alternative to their shitty distro and package manager or what is happening here?5
Pals, can you recommend some good games for the Nintendo Switch?
I already own
Mario-Kart 8 and
Breath of the wild.12
echo name > /etc/hostname
This PC -> Properties -> Extended Settings -> Hostname -> OK.
The fuck windows?!
I'm changing a hostname, not taking out a loan.9
Advertising your laptops as "linux-laptops" but shipping only with nvidia-gpu should be punishable by death.26
What the fuck man?!
Amazon did remove Scrubs from german Prime.
The fuck am I supposed to binge on end now?!3
To you CPP-devs,
I want to write a small ask-password tool, like systemd-ask-password, but tty-only and non-systemd.
I use termios to switch the terminal into noncanonical mode and disable echo of stdin.
Now I want to read chars from cin and append them to a string, until I read an endl or an error occurs.
In C, I could use an input-loop with getchar, but how could I do this the CPP-way, since cin.get() is nonblocking?2
I love working at the new location.
My new colleagues are super chill and I'm within a 10 second walking distance to the coffee machine (one of these automates, where you just press a button and get a hot coffee within a minute, instead of having to start cooking a while before you actually need it)
But now I'm slightly worried, because my coffein-intake is skyrocketing because of this thing.2
Wow, traveling by ICE (German long distance trains) and one of them is running late.
What a fucking surprise.15
Right on my way to the city I'll be working in for the next 3 weeks.
I work for a medium sized company, belonging to a big AF, like in one of the world biggest players in their branch, company.
I got transferred to another location on the other side of the country for a few weeks, as part of my apprentice-ship.
I'm already thrilled to start work tomorrow.
Hey pals, do you know any good RSS feeds about programing,Unix,hacking,... ?
Can be in German or English.11
The actress that plays Beck in YOU looks like they really wanted Jennifer Lawrence, but they really didn't want to pay for Jennifer Lawrence.4
Oh fuck, Germany wants to pull an Australia and force services-providers to disclose passwords, password-hashes,... to law enforcement.18
I wanted to reinstall my RPi today.
Instead I lay in my bed, because I'm too hungover for this shit.3
When did the meaning of
"Statically linked", under Linux, change from
This binary includes all libraries it depends on and will run on any device that runs a sufficiently compatible hardware and kernel.
This binary will only run on these 3 Ubuntu versions, because it still depends on a fuckton of shared-objects of " default" libraries and this shit-distro is the only one, that comes pre-bloated with all of them.5
Hey pals, I'm thinking about buying a new laptop.
I will run a linux-distro on it and use it mostly for dev-stuff,video-streaming,etc..
I'm currently eyeballing a Lenovo Campus Thinkpad T490.
With i7 (4x up to 4.6GHz, 8 threads), 16GB ram.
Would it be a good choice or would you recommended something else?14
I'm thinking about what language to dive into next.
I already have a pretty good knowledge of Go and mediocre knowledge of C and Java.
So far I thought about...
1. CPP, as I need it for school and it runs on literally anything.
2. Rust, as is seems to spread and the combination of low-level, memory-safety and abstraction seems pretty appealing to me.
3. Kotlin, specifically kotlin-native, is it combines java-like high-level programming with native speed.
4. Nim, as it combines high-level techniques with c-like freedom.
What do you people recommended, or something completely else?8
I'm doing a CISCO network certification in school and I get the feeling, that CISCO straight up ignored the last 30 years of OS development.9
On the first day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
A drunk who drove into a tree
On the second day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Two shattered skulls
And a drunk who drove into a tree....
Twelve beaten children
Eleven drive-by shootings
Ten frozen homeless
Eight burn victims
Seven strangled shoppers
Six random knifings
Four beaten wives
Two shattered skulls
And a drunk who drove into a tree7
I just noticed I'm programing while wearing a black hoodie, using vim.
I hope nobody uses me for making shitty stock-photos.9
