Time for , once again.

Hi !

I'm l4p1n, pronounced "lapin". I'm a saber-toothed wolf-dragon that happens to do system administration and a bit of coding as a hobby.

You can expect some stuff about what I do, some thoughts here and there, sprinkled with some fluffiness.


I have one SSD that has apparently decided to be very slow and cause trouble.

Why not ?

I wonder what's happening to display such symptoms

Well well... on the internet, looking for a crate that handles translation in Rust.

I could roll my own solution with YAML or whatever files, but eh. The pain point would be the plural but I can work with that. For now I'll do French and English and I think I'll stop there ๐Ÿค”

I've found a few crates, like fluent-rs which is kinda low level for the Fluent Project.

And server dusted, more like cleaned.

Not a deep clean like get every nook and cranny, but I've got everything out and cleaned the components

Somebody came up to me and said I could use an SSH CA and do things with it o.o'

Looks interesting, not gonna lie

In the past 48 hours I've seen "If you use a tiling window manager you're probably a racist toxic fossbro", "if you support FOSS you're likely a liberal or a toxic fossbro", "If you use emacs you're part of the problem" and uh...

Can we just stop putting people in bins based on what tools they use and, more likely, what they had available to them when they first learned how to interact with tech?

Y'all stressing me out because I've seen these funny little takes go viral and become zeitgeist material.

look at my newly revamped vrchat avatar!! @river @kylan and @toydragon all put work into it for me ;w;

Well well, still thinking about how I can sort of unify certain aspects of my containers and virtual machines, mainly SSH keys.

So... shared ZFS dataset mounted on the containers and a ZFS-based NFS share for the virtual machines ?

That would be interesting, I think.

If you have any solution proposal, I'll take them.

it's amazing how "if you don't like them block them" it's considered 'reasonable advice for the internet' until that someone is curating the space that they oversee, then SUDDENLY it's censorship

Browsing ebay.

I'm looking at the Swiss version.

Prices are in CHF but text is in German.

I got this wonderful piece of art from
with myself and my partner @68kHeart. I love how it turned out!! :bowie_heart: :bowie_blush:

New article on the blog. A rant about people who cry about colors on a piece of code or other:

"A white theme, so what ?"

I got the damage for my car.

My radiator did explode. And the thermostat, and some tubes.

Altogether, it will be $425.

I don't.... I don't have this cash.

Pls help



For any trans people who need to hear this:

Your body is beautiful. You're worthy of being desired, if that's something you want.

Whether you choose to transition (and in whatever direction you want), and wherever you are in that process -- you're seen, you are believed, and I'm proud to be your sibling.

When you look in the mirror, you deserve to hear, "Hey, Beautiful." If you don't hear it in your voice, hear it in mine.

Your strength is incredible. You come from a long tradition of transgender people, stretching back to the earliest days of humanity.

Let the haters shout into the void. You don't need to. The Void already loves you. โœจโ€‹
