Need to upgrade my cat. I’ve got a desktop but I think a laptop would get in my way less.

So... this happened. Nobody hurt, but petrol fires are fucking scary.

mh+ sluttiness+ body image+ nudie drawings i guess 

My sister painted this portrait of Tilly for my birthday!

"If you know the secret ways, you can summon and bind a powerful being who will serve you, feed you, and protect you."
"What are those secret ways, mother?"
"I will teach you," she purred, and began washing the kittens.

It’s our wedding anniversary. Karen and I have been married for 19 years!

Karen is really really bad at being photographed so this is the best selfie I managed.

I installed Ubuntu 19.04 on my server and file transfers went up to 109MB/s and smbd only uses 70% of a cpu core. Which still seems pretty high tbh, but I think it is at least using AES-NI now.

The quick-swap drive bays on my HP Microserver were never this bloodthirsty

I just cut myself again, and I really need to stop reaching in to this case to plug in sata cables without taking the side off

In retrospect I should have expected a cpu cooler called a Scythe Katana to be sharp

I was tidying up cables and lost half my zfs mirror, panicked, and made a blood sacrifice to the computer building gods so now it's back

Samba version 4.7.6, included with Ubuntu 18.04, does not support AES-NI.

What. The. Fuck.

I sacrificed my HTPC to replace my HP Microserver. With an i5 2500K it can now read at 83MB/s and write at 66MB/s and the bottleneck is smbd using 100% of a CPU core.

The actual encryption on disk barely seems to use any CPU. Could Samba somehow still not be using AES-NI?

:gimp: For those who missed the news, #GIMP got forked big time: 

My poor HP Microserver was managing 100MB/s read and write over the network. Then I turned on luks to encrypt the drives and it halved. Then I forced SMB encryption too and it halved again. I might need a better server CPU.

Fun fact: each book scanned for the Internet Archive has a unique identifier, usually the title of the item, or its first 16 characters; the volume number, or 00 if there isn't one; and the first 4 characters of the author. So:

terfs, nazis
