Have you heard of
git-rerere - Reuse recorded resolution of conflicted merges
You know when you rebase and have to fix the same conflicts over and over? Well this is supposed to help with that. It remembers what you did to fix each conflict and re-uses it.
I’m waiting for the opportune moment to try this out. I haven’t needed to do any gnarly rebases recently.
I wish flying were this easy for me.

You know all those mandatory linting checks you have? They just train programmers to workaround linting checks. Does that make your codebase better?
Am I frustrated?

I was intrigued by Orion after seeing it mentioned a lot. It dawned on me this would be a good solution to my occasional need for a monitor that I can connect to various computers. So I bought the recommended adaptor from Amazon and (unlike Tom) it worked perfectly. Will I remember this when I need a monitor twice a year? Doubtful.
I’m hoping that the new space is going to magically become available once all disks have been swapped out, but I’ll have to wait and see.
Reader, the space was not automatically available. I needed to do some
noodlingcareful configuration. I set
autoexpandon, and rebooted, but this didn’t see to do the trick on it’s own.
sudo zpool set autoexpand=on <pool>
I had to tell each vdev to expand, so I did this once for each new device.
sudo zpool online -e <pool> <vdev>
And then the new space became available. I now have 48TB of usable space.
Speaking of disks, I wanted to wipe the data from the disks I just replaced but had no way to plug them into anything. I bought this USB to SATA adapter which allows plugging in 2.5 (and with a 12V power supply) 3.5 disks via USB-A.
I’ve not done the actual wiping yet, but I will at least be able to physically connect them when I get around to it.
Another comedy gig this week (they tend to come in groups, like buses), John Robins' Howl at the Bristol Beacon – top vibes. This is my first trip to the Beacon since it was renovated. They’ve done a pretty nice job with the exception of not having stagged seating. Why all theatre spaces don’t have staggered seating is…staggering to me (this is my blog and I’ll tell as many Dad jokes as I like).
As is my usual behaviour, I spent a full day worrying about a tiny issue at work which was solved with a 30 second conversation the next day. Why am I like this?
I respect what Signal are doing for secure messaging. But, for me, the app leaves a lot to be desired. Notifications just don’t work for me, which makes using it very difficult. Anyone else?
