The phrase “you MUST forgive me” pisses me off.

Just to be clear, it was an older woman (late 60s?) who spoke to me as though I were a teenager wasting her time and who was just plain wrong. Given her tone, I expected her to throw in a condescending “YOUNG MAN!” for good measure.

The punchline: this is the first time we ordered from her restaurant since before the pandemic because they gave us soggy salads several times in a row. 😂

People in this town are uncommonly stupid. Delivery person from a local restaurant (not DoorDash) called ro say she was knocking but no answer. Long story short: she walked through our yard to a walk-out basement door on the side, not in the main living space. She then kept arguing she delivered to that door before awhile back. She was quite annoyed when I told her she must be remembering another house because that door is SECURITY BARRED because we NEVER USE IT. 😂

How are you going to double down on your mistake by telling a person about their own damned house?! 😂

This is Danville, Virginia, folks. The stupid is pervasive and obnoxious.

ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY MINUTES WITH TWO VIDEO ANSWERS ON AN UNPAID LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT TO APPLY TO ONE JOB IS FUCKING ASININE.

I just realized that other than comments (several hundred) and boosts (an absolute metric fuckton), I haven't posted anything else here in over two months. IOW, no unique-standalone-clever-AF toots.

WTH? Sometimes it's like I don't even know how to use social media, build an audience or preen like the queen I believe myself to be.

Self-promotion aside, I really to work on making that inner monologue a little more visible.

My apologies. I'll try not to be such a creepy lurker from now on.

@lisamelton If you’re looking for topic suggestions, you could write a treatise detailing how it would be a tactical error - perhaps even a crime - not to hire me. Demonstrate how a Joshless organization is doomed to failure. 💅😂

@daveverwer Hey, Dave! I’m sure you’ve gotten this question many times before, but have you ever considered a macOS Dev Weekly?

If it doesn’t already, it should also have a big obvious Privacy Mode. That mode should TURN THE SERVICE OFF ENTIRELY (so there can be no accidental recording via bugs or misconfigurations) and require re-authentication to come back out of privacy / restart the service.

If shutting it down feels like overkill, I can tell you as a software engineer: it’s absolutely not.

Explaining my idiosyncrasies to a coding challenge reviewer while also demonstrating what it's like to work with me. A number of poor, innocent repositories are littered with evidence of my many, many neuroses.

@ctietze LOL, no - only explaining this to the reviewer of the challenge. I rarely do code challenges but I'd like this job and the market is tough, so 🤷‍♂️.

Command-line-geeks:

WHAT option do I give to "tar" to tell it to remove all files that may exist in the directory path - such that it will remove files that are in the path that are NOT in the archive.

I backup my macports directory to a tar file prior to updating to the newest ports. SO if I need to revert, I want everything in /opt to be replaced with my tar file contents - and I want files in /opt that are not in my tar file to be removed.

Help? TIA! 🙏

@lisamelton

joshua,
@joshua@nozzi.social avatar

@jann @lisamelton Wait, aren’t those options specifically for writing an archive?

joshua,
@joshua@nozzi.social avatar

@jann @lisamelton Crazy question, but … why all this cleanup when it seems you’re just swapping the dir contents directly? Have I misunderstood?

joshua,
@joshua@nozzi.social avatar

@jann @lisamelton Oh! 😂

@jann @lisamelton I love how Lisa’s just following the progression of this mess with stars, right up to my “Oh!”. 😂
