Just upgraded to firefox 67.0 and was surprised that my profile was not active. A page explains that there nothing is lost and suggests I open an account in the cloud to synchronize my bookmarks & history etc.

I absolutely do *not* want to do that.

After searching a little I found that I can restore my profile using about:profiles

I wish that was mentioned in the page suggesting to upload in the cloud, as a local alternative that people who value their privacy may prefer.

After trying random combinations to try to produce č, ř and other letters with this reverted circumflex accent with the compose key, I discovered /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose which has all possible combinations. Very handy.

<Multi_key> <c> <e> : "ě" U011B # LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH CARON
<Multi_key> <less> <e> : "ě" U011B # LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH CARON
<Multi_key> <e> <less> : "ě" U011B # LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH CARON

@singuliere Don't take my word for it, but I think that industry standard SLA for SAAS is 99% to 99.9% availability.

I wonder what is the acceptable threshold for how often a infrastructure fails. For instance, if Travis fails once a month during a few hours, I can live with that (network problems, faulty images etc.). If it failed daily, I would not use it.

Noone wants to find bugs in the CI more often than in their own code 🙂

Interesting, looks like they are taking the principles of FOSS and applying them to hardware and #electricalengineering design. Still, I think it's not exactly what I'm looking for. Is there an #ee community like the FSF that allows hobbyists and EEs alike to share and freely license their schematics/designs? I don't have any extraordinary schems (mostly for guitar pedal circuits), but I think it would be incredibly cool to have a site and community that did just that.

Mozilla is shutting down their IRC servers and moving to Discord, a proprietary chat service.

Hey Mozilla, aren't we forgetting something here? Our very own "Mozilla Pledge for a Healthy Internet” states:

> Principle 2 The internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible.

> Principle 6 The effectiveness of the internet as a public resource depends upon interoperability (protocols, data formats, content), innovation and decentralized participation worldwide.

Is there an API endpoint in to revoke an application token from /profile/applications? I looked at docs.gitlab.com/ce/api/ but did not find anything

Did you know that setup.cfg with metadata-version 2.1 is silently reverted to metadata-version 1.1 in PKG-INFO when the long-description-content-type is not present? And the side effect when uploading to is that project-urls are **not** displayed in the side bar! Took me more than one hour to figure this one out...

I got confused by not taking into account CA added to /etc/ssl/certs. Until I noticed from the documentation docs.python-requests.org/en/ma that it reads certificates from the certifi python package by default.

It makes sense because it is more portable. To change that default, setting


in the environment solves the problem.

I was in and happy about the diff I was seeing: all tests passed. And I accidentally hit k (as in kill the diff) which trashed them. And because is smart, the associated buffer was also updated to reflect my mistake.

I went to the buffer and at the prospect of re-writing the changes. But I tried and ... got my changes back.

Really happy that killing a diff in magit actually keeps it in the kill buffer!

Disappointed about not supporting cap_add or security_opt as of 18.09.2

I'm able to run in my container with docker run and with -compose but not with docker stack deploy

Happy to discover PEP503[1] and distributing packages from my own http server with:

- mkdir /var/www/html/mypackage
- python setup.py sdist
- cp dist/*.tar.gz /var/www/html/mypackage
- pip install --extra-index-url myserver.name/

Anyone knows about a python script to convert a keepass database into vault? There is github.com/pschmitt/vault-keep and I managed to make it work with a few patches github.com/singuliere/vault-ke

But it is rather limited and outdated and I'm hoping there is something more modern

@singuliere oh nice! I just posted about this and then saw yours :) Looking forward to it!

A working group on was just created and the first meeting will happen Wednesday January 23rd, 7pm UTC at -molecule on irc.freenode.net

If you're into writing roles and want to guard them against regression with proper integration testing, you'll be interested 🙂


Switching from python 2.7 to python 3.6 with ansible 2.7.5 for the Enough project

Anxiously waiting for molecule converge to complete and tell me how much work it will require.
