Me using youtube-dl.

This is taking a while. Wish I could stream.

Hey, I can ffplay the partial file. Wait, there's no sound.

Oh, that's a different stream format. I could download that.

Nah, it's half done. I'll wait.

Why is this taking forever? ^C this crap.

Now what was the magic number for the good format? Nope, that's not it.

Isn't there a list somewhere? How do I get this thing to print help?

Oh, wow, a new episode of Rick and Morty is available? I didn't want to watch a video I would learn from anyway.

Ah, went from not vulnerable to less vulnerable. Now back to regular nonsense.

Now to see how much pain and suffering is involved backporting #openbsd errata to 6.4.

I guess physical keyloggers are actually a big deal? Was not expecting that.

Humph. Why doesn't reality match my expectation?

@CyReVolt no this is on 1.13. It's doing a DNS lookup for proxy.golang.org. So if anything, they've made it worse recently. I have all the depends downloaded, and build works, but somehow go doc still likes to check the web.

Depends on the exact query. strings.Replace is fast, but strings.replace (because I'm lazy) apparently digs around for a different package, before returning the obvious answer.

Kinda suboptimal that the offline documentation tool "go doc" will stall for minutes if not connected to the network.

My preferred coffee shop has seemingly become the place to go for first dates. There are no words sufficient to express my displeasure.

Retweet if you remember when FAQs were called FAQs and not chatbots.

Ah yes, thanks to the golang-dev mailing list, I see that the official options is to...

*checks notes*

...just build an ancient version of golang to generate these files.

Somehow flak.blog counts as a "premium" domain and costs $280 per year. I should rebrand everything as honk.blog, for only $5. Nothing makes sense anymore.

On the topic of shell metachars and globs and command arguments and such.

1. There's probably more than you think. rsyncing a file named google.com:backdoors will likely send your secret plans to the big G.

2. In many cases, programs and protocols do not require a file to exist, as in the classic git/hg name a subrepo ; cat /etc/passwd oops.

Which is to say, various fixes like the kernel won't let you create bad names are likely to be about as effective as web sites that don't let you create a user named select.

Welp, got the new screen protector nailed down. Looking good. Fine artisanal craftsmanship in the installation.

1. It's a plain matte cover, the only kind I really like. Much better feel than glass or shiny plastic. I like the papery look too.

2. The previous screen was a privacy protector, which had a cool black ops ninja vibe to it, but combines with curved screen edges to render some portions invisible even to me. Exacerbated by some people (jwz) who seem to have margin:0 set on their blog. Fun times tilting this way and that every line, reliving the 2003 TN experience.

3. Curved screens in general are kinda dumb.

I have a theory, though at this point I think it's more like a universal constant, that the more "technology" there is in a screen protector, the harder it will be to apply and the less well it will work. It's pretty bad when the instructions in the box are just "watch our 10 minute YouTube video six times before starting."

I've been informed that #honk cannot be taken seriously without a project mascot. Fortunately, a solution presents itself.

Wishing everybody a fantastic Cyber Monday, here is Honk-sama.

Call the server police, somebody's asking about putting unauthorized RAM in their server. You need to comply with the manufacturer or face the consequences, citizen.

Golang brand asm is...weird.

Today's oddity is that they renamed all of the amd64/x86 jump instructions to match the m68k jump instructions.

But ppc and arm's jump instructions appear unrenamed.
