As astute readers will have guessed: I started a new job this week! Short blogpost forthcoming, but in a nutshell:

  • It's Reach Security: https://reach.security/
  • Any y'all in/near IT/SecOps should give the product blurb a look, it's neat! (& I'm not usually lucky enough to say that re: employers' products…)
  • I'll be doing a mix of feature development & devops-flavored things.
  • No dedicated OSS time (tbf: that was a ZIRP), but /may/ shoehorn some of my kit in, where appropriate.

I love zsh (just learned a few new useful things today, even!) but I also wish there was a way to enable only a subset of its extended glob feature.

Want: to use ^ for glob negation.

Don't want: to use quotes or a backslash every time I refer to a Nix flake output with #.

It might be time to do the thing I almost never do: burn down my entire shell config and start over.

It's like 15 years of cruft at this point, even with periodic machete sessions that's still a whole lotta nonsense.

@cks I'm literally over here dealing with >1 arch for basically the first time 🤣 albeit for now entirely within my Nix expressions, dotfiles don't care yet.

@ehmatthes Limiting myself to just bigger-than-usual machete cuts for now.

Eg, I angrily rooted out PATH-appending bits from like 6-7 different files/sections & unified them into one place, using a lovely zsh feature where 'path’ is an array that is automagically reflected as PATH-the-string.

@cks @ehmatthes What does the average shell do about "missing" PATH entries, anyhow? I've never had enough of them to care, one imagines the cost can't possibly be all that high, especially since most shells implement a basic index feature.

@cks @pro @ehmatthes zsh also has rehash for similar reasons

Should probably put “Official IT stress/fuzz tester” as my role/title for jobs, since I appear to always end up That Guy.

Normal, I ain’t.

Mild negative epiphany today: huh. maybe spending 5 years focusing on /avoiding/ the local Mac dev environment (and this includes things like “dev in a container or VM on your Mac”) was an unintentional self-own.

I had good reasons: previous dayjob did not /allow/ local Mac dev for the first few years; and around the same time, Apple did their silicon switcheroo, making “try using a thinkpad…just in case” a not entirely dumb idea.

Still tho.

EDIT: I must stress that the funny thing is not my throwaway container image name, but the creation timestamp.

EDIT 2: I eventually found the 'created = "now”’ incantation to make the timestamp “less useful for the computer, but more useful for the human" ✨

Lucky 7's on the Aranet4. Still green though, it's fine?

Was somehow getting my office suite up to 1100ish the other day, without even exercising. That was a little weird.

I see the Mac App Store hasn't gotten any less shitty in Sonoma. Maybe it's even worse now? Somehow??

Simply trying to sign in with a (new) Apple ID and update/adopt the bundled apps is a fucking shitshow.

Every time I see a list of Japanese yōkai, I'm reminded how bizarrely specific they are.

An old woman who grinds azuki beans but would /much rather/ be eating people instead.

Banana tree spirit that takes human form.

Bed that tries to kill you when you sleep on it.

Hairy kappa which prefers eggplants over cucumbers.

Monk spirit that spies on people while they use the toilet. (Ceiling monk is watching you poop?)

Yokai that just looks like some dude, but his butthole is an eyeball instead.

arrested after pants'ing a bunch of random strangers but officer! I was just trying to see if any of them were yokai! you gotta check the butthole!!”

bitprophet,
@bitprophet@social.coop avatar

@joshourisman oh shit, you got me, I’m the yokai that fucks with people by trying to prove /they're/ yokai

(not to be confused with the yokai that fucks people it thinks are other yokai)
