I received a zip full of files from someone who thought it would be cute/clever to use some kind of messed-up non-(terminal)-printable character in all the filenames. After dorking-around for 15 minutes trying to cobble together a shell script to fix this (hard when you can't type the target character) I found detox, and it *just fixed the fucking thing*

Greed was a universal human problem. It afflicts both rich and poor and there is no income level so high that greed cannot sour it with discontent.

Success by others should be an indication that something is possible. It should inspire you.

Clearly your value as a #Fediverse user is measured not on the number of friends you have, but rather on your boost and favorite counts. I'm poor

Eulogies are an interesting window into how to live.

You get one life. Make it count.
