why did they call it "Blue Lives Matter" instead of "Assigned Cop At Birth"?
#nixos tip : when
rsyncing build products (disk images etc) around the place, remember the
-I flag. Otherwise rsync looks at date (1-1-1970) and file size (probably the same size as last time) and skips the transfer
Using emacs tramp with remote nixos hosts: add to your .emacs
(require 'tramp) (add-to-list 'tramp-remote-path 'tramp-own-remote-path)
to make it use $PATH instead of resetting to include only
/run/current-system/sw/bin and nothing else useful (doesn't include packages in your profile that you added with

"In a way, Ikea is kind of like the Bitcoin of furniture: the company uses universal designs, meaning its hardware and measurements are uniform across most of the developed world." I'd like to propise this for Worst Analogy This Week, where do I send it?

Aperiodic reminder: clean the dust out of your PC fans, if you have them and there is any. My CPU temps under load have dropped from 80° to 35°
creative use of xargs -0 flag:
$ cat /proc/41262/environ |xargs -0 -n1 echo
(the "environ" files in proc directories show the process environment with ASCII NUL (\0) characters between each entry. We can use xargs -0 to break it into lines)

Here's my favorite git feature that no one knows about:
You can reference commits using the commit message instead of the hash. The ":/" syntax accepts a regex that matches any part of the commit message, returning the youngest matching commit.
TIL about c++ references. At least, a little. I am hoping that my mental model of "do this voodoo to avoid pass-by-copying semantics" is sufficient to avoid my arduino sketch crashing due to inadvertently creating two mqtt PubSubClients
