apparently my upstream's IRR entry isn't quite right yet
mfw the cool kids won't play with me because nobody wants to say i'm their friend

BGP peering configured, but routes haven't propagated upstream yet
notice me internet-senpai

when your tool only accepts GNU-style options: weird flags but ok

i immediately decided to do a cluster upgrade, which notes that it'll cause control plane downtime.. which apparently means everything will start 503ing

hi! is back up for now
for some reason GKE blew up and poking it fixed it

yesterday i put my programming socks on inside out by accident, almost made all my programming for the day inverted
gonna save this trick for when i need to invert a binary tree in some dipshit's interview process

i hate this software so badly, i hate the opaque make-no-mistakes-ever recommendation engines where i'll never learn what mistake i made in the past to get garbage i hate recommended continuously, or know what weird shit it'll come up to make the model fit if i tell it that sucks
there's no way i know of to reset a Spotify radio station, so i just pray there's a different edition of the same album that i can create a fresh one on when i mess one up completely

one day i'm going to delete and recreate my Spotify account just so i can get rid of all the garbage it plays me because i hit Like while trying to hit Skip

i'll make it a properly configurable NixOS module instead of hardcoding CloudFlare (and update the gist) once i actually wake up and get out of bed, might be a while

the NixCon venue WiFi kept poisoning our DNS caches, so i wrote this in delayed anger

BTW, if you are hella gay, or hella queer, or really just a minority in any way (and if you are unsure, there is an easy rule: you are valid, and you are enough) and want to go to 35C3, hit me up for a presale voucher.

Boosts appreciated

gonna be impressed if it manages to spin up my SSD

apparently there's an entire additional filter subsystem in mksquashfs, 2.4kLoC
the option isn't even listed in the help output, and there is no documentation i can find mentioning it

today i thought to myself "gosh. i can't think of a way to write a POSIX overlay filesystem that doesn't produce absolutely horrifyingly nonsensical inode semantics"
thinking that perhaps, i might just be very dumb, i opened the overlayfs documentation page
it turns out that the answer is "they are indeed", and the documentation claims this is alright because "many applications and tools ignore these values and will not be affected", which somehow fails to soothe me
