It turns out that if your are in the wrong directory or named incorrectly, SSH won't find them and use them. Thanks for the tip, Github: help.github.com/en/github/auth

I want to organize a NUMTOT Cannonball Run, where you have to get from one city's downtown to another using any transportation method except car

Failing an open firmware+hardware mouse, what is the most + mouse?

Browsing iFixit, the only mouse I can find with a repairability score is the Magic Mouse 2, which is a pathetic 2/10: ifixit.com/Teardown/Magic+Mous

Does anyone know of an open hardware / open source ?

The closest I've found is this one-shot open firmware + hardware mouse which appears to be made from obsolete unsourceable parts: github.com/biomurph/Mouse

I hope it gets updated someday!

I was just introduced to Zapier today. It appears to be a more complex, business-oriented version of IFTTT, for gathering + processing data by connecting various web services.

I hope there isn't too much brain-melting complexity hidden behind its friendly-looking UI!

Biked out to Morris Arboretum yesterday, 30 miles round trip. Our reward for making it there was to visit this giant bird nest. Thankfully we escaped before we could be devoured by an enormous robin!

Let's say you are , and you want to bring your own and eat it indoors (assume bad weather). What options are there? What sorts of places should you look for?

The first idea that occurs to me is food courts, since the space isn't exclusive to one food business.

The apocalypse has arrived, it's just not evenly distributed yet

If you're trying to preserve your music collection for posterity, which should you purchase: vinyl LPs, which last indefinitely if unused but wear out if played, or CDs, which can decay in as little as 10 years, but can be used to make perfect digital copies?

It seems like the answer may partly depend on whether you expect the collection to actively maintained, or if you expect it to be forgotten and rediscovered many years later.

It's too bad about Client Hints, they seem useful: smashingmagazine.com/2016/01/l

But they aren't implemented in Firefox or Safari. If they were more broadly adopted, it would make it easier to automatically serve responsive images without HTML markup.

Which is better for serving up images: rewriting JPEGs/PNGs to webp on the server side (leaving them mislabeled as .jpg) by detecting Accept headers, or using the picture element in HTML?

What's the best command-line player (on macOS)?

just got a release 22 days ago: github.com/clangen/musikcube/r

While last released over a year ago and may not be actively maintained: github.com/cmus/cmus/issues/85

Any other good options?

My laptop helpfully offered to run an macOS update later tonight, when it thinks I'll be asleep. Ha!

(1) you don't know my sleep schedule
(2) there's no way I trust a computer to do something important like an OS update when I'm not around. I'll be watching it like a hawk.

#Mozilla's acquisition of Pocket really broke my heart in a lot of ways. Still does.

We're coming up on three years since they acquired pocket.

And we still don't have source in which people can host their own servers NOR source for pocket mobile apps.

Coming up on one year since they closed all the bugs about the above from their bugzilla too.

Why I'm no longer a libertarian: the libertarian descent into climate denialism, and the lack of plausible libertarian solutions to the climate crisis. I should have predicted libertarianism's failure due to collective action problems. boingboing.net/2020/01/27/galt
