Playing around with cmus tonight. My music library has so much bad metadata, it’s not even funny.
A special build of cURL that can impersonate Chrome and Firefox: https://github.com/lwthiker/curl-impersonate
In the end, we all do what we must.
I started a notes section of my website. It’s for shorter, less formal posts. https://mckinley.cc/notes/20221101-yet-another-blog.html

I really need an automatic Git mirroring setup. I’ve been burned too many times. At least this one is (allegedly) temporary.
Wikiless, a self-hosted Wikipedia proxy, has been temporarily taken down from Codeberg at request of Wikimedia Legal: https://orenom.fi/
Wayland tech tip #3: Be sure to install warpd-wayland-git instead of warpd-git from the AUR, otherwise you’re gonna have a bad time.
Been playing around with Warpd. I could see myself using it much more if I used multiple displays or had no TrackPoint.

Added a section to my XSLT stylesheet explaining what Atom is. That was the point of making it, but I got carried away with date conversion.
TIL about the non-breaking hyphen: ‑ (U+2011)
I have a new Atom feed at https://mckinley.cc/blog/atom.xml. Open it in a Web browser for a surprise. :)
The 21st night of September?
You don’t want to be on Cloudflare’s naughty list: https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/cloudflare-ip-blockade.html

I also found some bad markup in the twtxt archive that’s been there for over a year. Hopefully that section won’t be handwritten for long :)
Handwritten HTML strikes again! Since June this year, I’ve been truncating the name of the month to the 1st 3 characters in my twtxt archive
Here’s the bug report, it’s very entertaining. Tony Marston is my favorite character. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98168
A 21 year old bug in Firefox just wasted half an hour of my life.
Having fun brushing up on Git. I have a remote set up on my web server. This post is the commit to make sure the post-receive hook works.
The version control system in my head isn’t as good as Git.

Today is a CCR kind of day.
RIP Terry Davis. I can’t believe it’s been 4 years already.
I was going to say it was the second greatest, but the Epic Games GitHub Mail Disaster of 2022 was a pull request.
This is, perhaps, the greatest bug report of all time. IRC clients should specify a Gentoo-specific username: https://bugs.gentoo.org/35890
I’m currently halfway through my first Gentoo install. Coincidentally, also my first GNU/Linux install on a system with Nvidia graphics…
A 5 minute job delayed for 3 months is the McKinley Labs way.
I’ve been TrackPointless for 3 months, and I finally swapped keyboards with my parts T430 this morning. Oh, how I’ve missed you, old friend.
I compiled Ladybird, the Linux port of the SerenityOS browser. Here’s a screenshot of my website: https://mckinley.cc/img/ladybird.png
A “Submit to HN” button at the bottom of a blog post is a little presumptuous, don’t you think?
TeamViewer installs a suspicious font, apparently only for browser fingerprinting: https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/teamviewer-font-privacy.html

Happy 4th! I went all out with the website decorations this year.
Great blog post. I’ve been thinking about this, just couldn’t put it into words. https://seirdy.one/posts/2022/06/25/two-types-of-privacy/
Lab6, the zine about itself, just released Issue 3! It’s a PDF/Gemini/HTML/TeX/x86 polyglot this time. Great stuff! https://lab6.com/3
Cloudflare and the Web sites it uses to perform MiTM attacks are down in many places around the world. Rejoice!
It’s amazing that Framework, a company that designed its own laptop, can’t avoid breaking its RSS feed every 2 weeks. Unsubscribed!
Farside: “A smart redirecting gateway for various frontend services” like Nitter and Scribe. https://github.com/benbusby/farside
I have added an to my RSS feed. I’ll start including atom:updated as well, since the namespace is already defined.
Their s aren’t <![CDATA]>’d, either. They’ve opted to escape every single HTML <tag>.
