@noelle Not so long ago I worked out why language is weird. It's because it's invented by, and used by, people.
And people are weird.
I have to make this joke every time I hear the address, I'm sorry
@noelle I just read this to my wife and in return I got a Very Hard Stare (ala Paddington).
I blame you.
@ajroach42 Here's a link to some of the discussion that arises from the on-line "read along":
Anyway, I'll leave you with that, and if you want to know more, or get a recommendation of a specific Heyer novel, let me know.
@ajroach42 I will find a chart of a "read along" so you can see what the idea is. It is effectively historical fiction, so it sounds plausible. Getting her a nice physical book might be a reasonable present.
Stand by ... link to come ...
@ajroach42 Does she read? My wife is a huge fan of Georgette Heyer, and there are *HUGE* on-line "read-alongs". Let me know if this sounds at all interesting.
She wrote a lot, it's mostly Regency fiction, and some books are better than others. I can ask for recommendations, and I can point you at charts of the "Read Alongs" to give you a sense of the phenomenon.
whoah, I've just noticed that Neil Sloane mentioned one of my integer sequences in a talk at Doron Zeilberger's experimental math class! http://oeis.org/A268176/a268176.pdf
If coming up with questions was as hard as answering them, I'd feel a real sense of achievement now
@garritfra It's a nice idea, and I kinda already do/have that.
My notes are named by date and content, then filed in a "tag tree".
@cefiar It's EXT4 ... I'm finding that the Usage number goes up and down exactly as expected. Archive files to a tarball, the "Used" figure goes up. Remove the originals, the "Used" figure goes down.
The "Available" and "Use%" figures remain static at 0 and 100% respectively, even when subtracting or dividing "Used" and "Total" appropriately show that they should not be.
It's as if a "needle" got to the limit of its travel and got stuck there.
Is "df" broken?
I have an external USB drive I use for backups, and I'm preparing to swap it out for a fresh one. It was full, and I'm been cleaning it a bit before the swap. In doing so I've found that
# df -B 1 <mount_point>
That surprises me a little ...
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
# df --version
df (GNU coreutils) 8.28
