i'm not sure if the writer of this guardian piece is having a stroke or sending a secret message. either way where is the sub editor??

the guy who lives next to me has a dog with terrible separation anxiety, and howls frequently when her owner leaves her behind.

he doesn't do anything about it because it doesn't affect him (since, ya know, he's not there when it happens) but there's only so much that i can do to assuage her by poking my nose through the gap in the fence and calling her name.

i just feel sad for the dog who is stressed out and howling every day because her owner just doesn't care enough to help her

one of the biggest problems with our approach to positive initiatives like reducing water consumption, fighting climate change, proper recycling etc. is that the onus is always placed entirely on the end user/private citizen

if you work in basically any industry for more than a couple of years, you can see that you can't trust people to do things properly, if at all

we'll never get to a great recycling target, reduce or reverse climate change, or see improvements in our water usage if we don't target the producers of things that harm the world

why put the responsibility on the individual to save the world, when we can regulate the production of the things that damage it in the first place

I'd like to share a short lesson based on my experience working with computers for a couple of decades or so.

1) Don't ever put all the screws back in until you know it's working.

2) Putting all the screws in will stop something from working.

trying to convince react native that i do actually want to talk to servers with self signed certificates when they're our internal servers, and not just reject their responses out of hand

Parents: are your kids exchanging vi keymaps?

wtf: one word forward, then to the first 'f'

LOL: insert a new line with a single 'L' just above bottom of screen.

fml: move to one character past the next 'm'

tbh: move to two characters before the next 'b'

dtf: delete to 'f'

the lack of webserver i can deal with since i'm mostly using docker/nginx instead of apache these days, but i like self hosting emails for the various domains i have and my webhosting background makes using cPanel/WHM easy.

guess it's time for me to look into self hosted email servers. anyone know any good (preferably ) imap/smtp servers?
