Well that was a bit scary. My initrd failed to assemble my RAID array after a power outage. I had updated my kernel from 5.0.1 to 5.4.7 and apparently 5.4 now needs "raid0.default_layout=2" in the boot options. There is data corruption if you get the layout wrong, but apparently only if you have mismatched drive sizes (which I don't).

Well ... now I'm downloading 20 seasons of South Park ... so ... that happened. :bong:

It's really best not to respond to the peanut gallery.

What is the difference between ignorance and apathy?

I don't know and I don't care.

If you don't want to be a part of the Fediverse, then don't fucking federate! Don't get mad if someone replies to you. You can mark a post followers-only. You not understanding the UI doesn't make me a douche bag, it makes you an ignorant asshole.

And if you're going to report someone, at least make sure they're not the admin of the fucking instance! If you want to ban and kick people out of your chat room, go back to AOL and IRC.

I need off Vultr. ... two fucking DNS issues this month

Anyone want my old gaming laptop. It works really well; easy to upgrade:

@alex Keep in mind, you can do custom CSS in stock Mastodon without modifying the source code. I wrote a guide on it:

But you're right, a good chunk of these probably do have custom patches.

You know what I miss. 1990s era emulation and retro gaming sites:

Dave's classic was the place for learning about Bleem, UltraHLE, Nestical and all the other really amazing emulation tech of that era.

I hate these holidays right smack in the middle of the week .. and two Wednesdays in a row. You get a day off and then back to office hell again. I feel like I have to come in since I took a lot of time off last month. I have done almost nothing productive today. Bleh.

Children, by nature, are keen, passionate and curious. What was referred to as laziness is often merely an awakening of sensitivity, a psychological inability to submit to certain absurd duties, and a natural result of the distorted, unbalanced education given to them. This laziness, which leads to an insuperable reluctance to learn, is, contrary to appearances, sometimes proof of intellectual superiority and a condemnation of the teacher.

Really? If this hair salon wasn't just down the street, I'd say fuck it based on principal.

I updated my website to no longer use FontAwesome and now use regular old SVGs instead. I've been meaning to do that forever. Merging my poetry site into it is almost done as well; only two small pieces left. It's on a different branch; hope the merge isn't terrible.

So tired ... I should just go home. I have a lot of cleaning to do anyway.
