Oh well, really hard when I read the next part:
"The lady escaped with minor burns, but the priest was not so fortunate, since Madame learned self-defense from prostitutes, and is no stranger to clawing eyes."
"The only other interruption worth mentioning was that Madame's confessor, two hours into her recital, attempted to bludgeon her to death with a censer."

I'm seeing 500 error with a SQL query (a field is ambigous in a jointure), I'm upgrading Mastodon to see if that solves the issue.

Fourier transformations are easier to explain with some colors to stress upon the correspondance of explanation and the equation
Arg, I've just awaken all the building with a loud explode-like noise :/
If it wasn't enough, a dog barked loudly in the last foor.
The cause? I bumped into a wooden stool when I came back from the roof. The stool was in the hall near the window giving access to the roof.
Never thought the echo of a wood stool falling on the floor at 3am was so looooud.
(Now why there was a stool there is a good question too)

Stats, SSH keys discipline, configuration as code Show more
SSH key audit to transition to a system ensuring specified keys are included into .ssh/authorized_keys to a system managing the whole file: on 44 users, only 5 have divergences \o/
That's a 88.6% of disciplined users who sent changes to the code review system or filled tasks to update the Salt config instead of manually edit the file.
This one was funny:
If you create a Git branch with an UTF-8 character in your Salt root directory (managed as a Git repo so), it raises a codec error trying to copy your Git repo in the cache.
One day, we'll live in a world full of Plan9-like UTF-8 aware software.
Meanwhile, there are still scripts running on Python 2 and raising stuff like:
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 53: ordinal not in range(128)
just because you forgot your coding: utf-8 line and put a long dash in a comment.
