Wondering why noice doesn't have an urban soundscape I can have on in the background.

Realizing I can turn on background audio from GTA 3.

Realizing I live in NYC and can just open up a window.

Today I learned that Germany is a divided nation.

There is Aldi Nord and Aldi Sud.

I hate stuffing large blobs of data in text file formats.

I especially hate stuffing large binary blobs of data in them.

implementing and keeping track of all the chunks and thinking about organizing things back from a tree into a file feels like doing this video in reverse

In all seriousness, I'm having trouble visualizing it in my mind

Brett Kavanaugh argued in 2000, in his defense of Bush in Bush v. Gore, that ballots received after the election day in Florida had to be counted. Now he just wrote an argument for blocking that very thing from happening in Wisconsin with a very dubious legal rationale he's written up.

They're already gearing up to help steal the election in key races--watch the Wisconsin and Nevada legal cases especially

Bad joke 

If had been written by someone in a country near but not in the same one as @civodul the init daemon might have been called malinsois.

You probably heard @RIAA used #DMCA to get @microsoft's @GitHub to remove youtube-dl, but did you know Microsoft funds RIAA as a member? We call on Microsoft (& any organizations who purports to support #FOSS) to resign from RIAA in protest.

Dreams 

Escapism is my mind' way of dealing with extreme stress, but it makes for some lovely dreams.

My first dream was involving me in my childhood town/home driving around with a writer on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict (who looked like Karl Fogel) and also Nathan Fielder.

My second dream was a combination of Frasier and The Good Place. staring Kelsey Grammer on a date in a restaurant with a beautiful woman and wacky mishaps in the restaurant around her food and getting her back to Earth.

Has anyone here set up and used ldap? I'm thinking of using it as authentication for my jitsi instance but have never set it up.

The guides I see online are mostly about AD and Unix authentication.

Any guidance?

frustration, customer service 

Just so the whole story is here...

The website said to delete the server, I had to call customer service.

The first customer service rep asked for my customer ID and PIN, which you get from the website.

She then made a customer support ticket- something I could do from their site.

The second one wanted the name of the server, and then send me a ticket on the website where I had to reply "I agree".

All the credentials I provided were from the website.

Rackspace has really changed.

I have a server with them that needed deletion (it was my old mail server).

They made me call in to their call center, where I spoke with two people.

They required that I be logged into the website and read them information from the website to them.

When I asked why I needed to call, they said it was "added security".

But all I provided them was information that was available from the website, so there is no added security.

Next week I'm going to add DTMF generation so you can call out to a phone conference.
