⚠️ PSA to all Germans ⚠️

Starting tomorrow, Telekom and Telefonica will hand over your phone's movement data to the government and other authorities.

It is opt-out, not opt-in!

Deactivate ASAP.

Every once in a while I take a moment to stop and appreciate that there was, in fact, a semi-successful band called The Butthole Surfers.

Covid19, shopping 

In home living news, I think I finally fixed the leak in the kitchen. Took a while to hunt it down, but the u-bend wasn't properly attached to the drain pipe. Looked like it.

Learned to fix it from a youtube video, because the last time I did anything like this was 30 years ago.

just a quick reminder ... please CW your covid-19 / social distancing / political / isolation etc posts

this will let folks take breaks by filtering out keywords

If people keep telling me that they're my biggest fans and have pirated all my work, I might as well give up writing tech books.

It's always with "I would buy if you would only X." Sell on this platform, bitcoin, Markdown...

No. You saying you pirate the books is a jerk move to put pressure on me to run my business the way you want. People don't do biz your way because your way doesn't work for them, no matter what you think.

If you can see this,
I just want to remind you that you are adored, and we all want you to take care of yourself right now.

Drink some water.
Relax your shoulders.
Say a prayer. Meditate.

Call someone, and remind them that they are cared for as well.

I was looking for a video about "Yak Shaving", and after not very long I ended up at an utter classic from Sesame Street

A lot of people are feeling a lot of stress over this disease. It would be great if CWs could be used to keep things like counts out of the public eye so those people can be less stressed by their social media.

Thanks for your consideration.

Another milestone for : There is now a functional 'got clone' command which will appear in the next release.

The initial contribution came from Ori Bernstein and was based on his "git9" implementation for plan9. I reworked parts of this to re-use got library code and add pledge and unveil support.

git:// and ssh:// protocols are working. HTTP and 'got fetch' for incremental updates will appear at some point.

For now, happy cloning over SSH! :yoshi_egg:​ :yoshi_egg: ​:yoshi_egg:​
