I've bought a few thinkpad components like that from China, and I don't think I've ever had a fake. Probably just eWaste or recycling of old machines that lead to most of the components you see on eBay. Batteries are a bit scarier though.

@brandon Looks fine for me on Firefox 67.0.3 on Linux.

If you put a program named "git-whatever" in your $PATH, git will run it when you run "git whatever" so it acts like a regular git subcommand.

I was curious how that was implemented, so I just went and read the source (github.com/git/git/blob/master).

I heart Free Software

This morning I wrote PHP for Magento. This afternoon I'll be writing C#, and then probably going back to PHP for some Magento 2. Wew.

The Arch Linux wiki is your new best friend

Enough beating around the bush. GNOME 2 was one of the best desktop envrionments ever. Then the culture of the GNOME team got completely out of whack and they have spent all of their time since making Linux worse for everyone. We rewarded them for making the best desktop by giving them the most market share, then they just waved that big cock all over the scene, undermining their project and fragmenting the ecosystem. The fault for Linux desktop fragmentation can be placed squarely at their feet. Fuck you, GNOME.

You could pull this off with a little script to provide a common interface and name to the package manager. Hmm... I like this idea but there's a lot of moving parts here.

PSA: Stop labelling people interested in OPSEC and privacy as "paranoid". Paranoia is a mental illness, heavily influenced by fear, that makes someone believe they're under constant threat even when there is no evidence for thinking so.

Being careful about your online identity, privacy, taking care of your passwords, and using second factor authentication is not paranoia. It's common sense.

There are malicious actors who want to get their hands on as much information as possible. This is fact.

I made a script to grab a link to a random image of Richard Stallman.


I'm late to the party, but I've been doing a lot of Shopify app development with C# the past week (and this coming week). Diggin it

When Microsoft finally flips WSL and instead boots to a Linux kernel with an NT module on top, I hope they use the name they won in a lawsuit: Lindows

@kelbot It took me like 10 years to finally land on Arch Linux, and another 8ish to land on i3 :)
