Every manpage should have an EXAMPLES that shows how to do the very basic, most obvious thing with the command line tool or library function.
Talk now cancelled, I expect the reddit crowd to take this calmly.
"We were not aware of the issues" oh boy.
reddit is reacting as you'd expect
oh, and they have a vanity userid as well, probably one they insisted on when they were hired. I mean, not the worst offense, but... why bother if you're going to just forward to and use your firstname.lastname at gmail address anyway?
> receives email at institutional address
> forwards to legacy mail server
> has a rule there to forward to gmail
> somehow still has 12GB of email on the legacy server
Sends email directly from the gmail address, probably complaining we don't let them spoof our domain too. Faculty members gonna fac, y'all.
re: alc mention
Not that I'm drinking at work now! But I do have the occasional after-work social and my Wintendo is right next to it, so...
If you'd told me a year ago that one of my biggest annoyances about my work desktop would be that it has the occasional hard to see / harder to clean / always annoying little splits from opening a beer too close to the display, I'd have been... well, a bit surprised, since the only time I drank at work was office parties or a beer at lunch out.
(Too close in this case is "within about a foot and a half" - flip top bottles of wheat can really spray, apparently.)
Fuck I was talking to somebody about keeping notes on things and forgot the word then was looking through open tabs on my iPhone and saw what I meant was "Personal Knowledge Base" and that wasn't what I told them it was called and now I can't remember who it was but thanks to @natecull for originally bringing that term to my attention like a year ago (oh, it was May 2020, which only FEELS like a year ago)
Librarians are awesome
Me: how2 use library access to O'Reilly again? this is what happened
Librarian: oh, it's changed to something new-stupid from the old-stupid, it will fill in a code apparently?
Me: oh. yes, some gibberish appeared in a field that said "enter your institutional email address" so I deleted it and put in my address and it barfed, but I tried again and left the code and it worked
Librarian: huh, well, if you did that so will others, so I'm going to try adding a note to each of our ORA holdings
I am reliably informed that past me thinks present me is also a real fucking jerk and what was I expecting treating him like that, so fair play I guess.
Past me is a real fucking jerk.
I just found a fairly sizeable bug in some relatively paths of code we use hundreds of times a day, which I last touched 6 years ago. Like, "major features just plain don't work" bug, but we didn't notice because we never use those features. They presumably used to work but I have NFI when I broke them.
