@velartrill a short one, in fairness. I've had it aliased to "fext" for a while
@velartrill sed -e 's/[^.]*\.//' ?
@sir And what proportion of those emails contain diffs?
@JordiGH Depends on how much one uses it. If you can ditch social media apps, and minimize browser usage, turn off wifi/bluetooth except when needed, maybe even load it with LineageOS, you'll probably get a few days out of it.

@brainblasted Or *you* could just block/mute the admin if you've had poor interactions with them.
"Don't be offended" while often an ignorant thing to say, is still reasonable advice in many situations. Especially given the tendency of online discourse to seek any chance for outrage. In context, "Seek psychological help" sounds more like rhetoric than anything else.
I agree with you on the racist memes though; going by that, it does sound like he's an ignorant dickhead.
@pea Have you tried turning it off and on again?
@pea Happens to the best of us.
Happened to me during a quantum field theory exam. Turns out I don't understand quantum field theory. Instead I get to repeat the exam mid august.
It also happens to the worst of us.
Ugh. Why didn't #plan9 take over the world.
@piratejane What a handsome race.
@JordiGH Eh, still less weird than the power set axiom.

@JordiGH 13th of November, 1942, in Auschwitz according to Wikipedia, although I can't access the source cited. He had an interesting Mathematics education, studying under Frobenius and Schwarz.
Interesting quote from the article:
"He also anticipated the role played by digital computers in numerical solution of systems of linear equations. Remak's analysis may have influenced John von Neumann [...] but most of it has not been translated into English"
@velartrill Yeah, the process also has to be designed with systemd in mind, which is a pain. At that point it's as easy to just start out as root and then drop privileges—far more portable too.
