The people who bought and held onto their homes through the housing bubble considered themselves to be genius investors, even though their "strategy" consisted of "living somewhere, while forces they didn't understand drove trillions into the housing market and inflated the price of every home."
Housing is a uniquely dangerous form of speculation, because shelter is a primary human right, and being unsheltered is catastrophic.
Really going to need one of those world clocks on the wall when we move across the pond, but most work people are spread across North American timezones.
Getting timezones right in my head is probably the most challenging part of fully remote work.
That was a pleasant playing of records! Posted the mix here...
A lazy hour mix of some trance vinyl with a Platipus vibe.
now on there. Probably a bit of trancey vinyl this evening.
Still one of the handiest PDFs until my brain decides to push out 'ifconfig' memories, to accommodate 'ip'...
The 'ip' command cheat sheet.

New levels of 'reserving' the shady tables and benches at the splash park today. Someone has roped off the whole of one of the three areas for themselves, despite bringing their own shade tent also.
But this is the most brazen... Put reserved signs on all the tables on the other bit, and then bring wooden things to block off the path?!?!
Neither party has shown up yet...
Of course, being British, I'll just sit on the grass and quietly scowl at them.
Finally got around to applying my roughly 20yr old terminal color scheme to Windows terminal. That it has taken this long is definitely an indication I'm less inclined to fiddle with trivial things these days.
Boring colors, on a light grey background. It has been following me around in an .Xresources file and other forms since I'm not exactly sure when. I'll never be a dark mode person 💡 😎
Hoping people start to recognize this stuff, and the conversation moves on from the negative bitching, that is still seemingly embedded in every CentOS / afjacent thread.
Starting the workday booting #AlmaLinux 9 for ppc64le under qemu. Seriously impressive how quickly it came out after RHEL9, and for all architectures right out of the gate!
This kind of turnaround is quite a large improvement versus the lag at the launch of CentOS 7 & 8
Can't help feeling that between AlmaLinux being so quick, and CentOS stream offering a 'preview', we're in a much better position around 'RHEL but for free' than any previous time.
