A rogue script of mine accidentally deleted about $100k+ worth of work from one of my company's Linux OS-Build Servers, not knowing this was the one server that wasn't scheduled for Snapshots. It was also the only Build Server using XFS as the Filesystem, which is only partially supported by most File Recovery Tools and happens to delete Folder Structure information at delete time. Now I'll be spending the next week or so rebuilding every OS Configuration we lost from a Flat Directory of Gigabytes of files  :horrormirth:

Funny enough, the Script that fucked everything up was the Script that was supposed to negate the Local Storage requirement of the Build Server altogether once it was complete. In a sense, it kind of did, just a bit more forcefully than I'd hoped  :lol:

Yeah, it's a whole lot of fun.

For me, the favorite age is 4-8.  They're old enough to ask questions, and young enough to want to ask the questions.

I'm looking forward to this, we are at the yes/no stage (everything is no)

There's a cure for that.

Who wants a cookie? Oh you don't oh I see.

Ask them a couple of other questions to get the "no"s started.  Then ask about the cookie.

When you hit the inevitable recursive why phase, I had some success with a "whole questions only" policy. They'll still ask but you take away the reflexive ones that are just to keep you talking.

Yesterdays Star Trek Discovery (S4E6) was the absolute worst episode ever made, from any series ever.

I say this as a Discovery fan. 

It ruined my life.

I've still not seen it yet, though I saw your comments on FB. I'll give it a watch tomorrow - worst comes to worst I can slip into a food coma to escape it.

I’m, for reasons unbeknownst to me, enjoying the fuck outdo the Dexter: New Blood series.

It is fairly enjoyable. After a couple of episodes it does feel rather like they got the band back together, on the overall writing front. No idea if that's true, but it comes across as the case. And Michael C Hall is on point as always.

I’m doing the need-work-need-housing dance again
[...]
“I’m homeless on Jan 1st again, but I got a date coming up”

Update: I have housing for at least 6 months, and I'm working with professionals on getting employment.

With my name change almost completed (you'd get a kick out of the name I went with, Dok, I forget if I ever gave you the full up-to-date one), a wonderful woman I'm going to see again soon, doctors who care, having a place to go, improving my diet, two organizations and a friend helping me find work, on and on and on, I aim to be self-sufficient by year's end 2022 ... and I have both good motivation to aim that high and good reason to consider it doable.
“I am that worst of all type of criminal...I cannot bring myself to do what you tell me, because you told me.”

There's a hole in everything.

If anyone was wanting to canonize Betty White, don't worry, I handled it.
