Trying to decide if it's awesome or insane that the easiest way I've found to transfer content between my phone and my PC is fucking scp in a terminal.

Probably a lot of both...

Me: "Just do:
cat [filename] | awk ...."

Guy at work: "No that isn't working, I got the error:
[his_actual_filename.csv]: file not found"

...this guy has been working with nothing but shell scripts FOR FUCKING YEARS and he really just did that?? And couldn't understand why it gave an error?? smh...

(I used to give placeholder values in <> instead of [], but ya can't be too careful with these people...)

@seachanged oh nice, I'm even finding ones with a USB cable already attached for like $40, that's useful. I use an SCD30 right now, better range and accuracy but not like I need that! My apt certainly isn't going over even the 2k max (data sheet seems to have 2k and 5k listed, maybe there's variants)

And yeah I'm one of those people who just has Pis everywhere so that's my typical approach! Love keeping old hardware going too though if you've got it :)

Thinking of making a T-shirt....lmao
(Forgive the blur, it's something with LineageOS that I can't be bothered to fix)

(It was also originally the "thin red line" and referred to THE FUCKING BRITISH! Goddamn modern day Royalists...and they all claim to be so goddamn patriotic...)

@seachanged how inexpensive was that CO2 sensor? I got one a couple years back but it was like $60US which seemed a bit much...

Also, would a Raspberry Pi work as a cheap(ish) HDMI and USB terminal?

Spent a few days with prod support asking why code in our PT environment doesn't match prod (code that I do not have ANY access to in the SVN and read-only access to in our environment...ie, not code I'm even supposed to deal with) only to find out today that PROD DOESN'T MATCH THE SVN EITHER CAUSE *EVERYONE* IS JUST HARDCODING CHANGES INTO THE LIVE SCRIPTS!

Sometimes I run commands that don't exist just to use my bash history as a notepad...

bash: eta730: command not found

I guess I could at least use echo...but shit at that point why not just go all the way and open fuckin emacs?

Man, these fucks are asking me to figure out why code was deployed wrong back in January (yet is still working fine) and how to fix it so they can validate the new code for prod (which is NOT AT ALL what we have deployed in PT) in a code base that I DON'T EVEN HAVE READ ACCESS TO! Nor any documentation or description. But apparently the fact that I can reverse engineer a shell script makes me the best expert they have? God this company is a clusterfuck...thankfully, it's ten to five...

Oh hey I'm back. Man I really gotta get those cert updates fully automated. That or I gotta start caring enough about mastodon to do it? xD

(It's like halfassed automated now. Hopefully. We'll find out in a couple months!)

Current experiment: Virtualbox running a Proxmox server which is running a virtual pfSense firewall (and some other servers)...and I want the proxmox management interface to be on the pfSense LAN. Sounds simple enough...but I've been struggling with this network configuration for HOURS...at this point I've got four virtual NICs, one is basically acting as a patch cable plugging the server into itself...but I still cannot get proxmox to cooperate...

Mastodon

Experimental (currently personal) Mastodon server for exploration of the fediverse. If you aren't familiar with Mastodon yet, try https://joinmastodon.org/ Invite-only at the moment; I may accept requests to join this server, but be aware that I make ZERO promises about uptime, accessibility, or data preservation on this server. I'll try to be polite about it, but as long as this message is present there is a significant possibility that I'll have to nuke your profile at some point. (Basically I don't know if it's going to stay on this host and I'm not sure how painful migration would be)
