In-reply-to » Hack of the day: running watch -n 60 rm -rf /tmp/yarn-avatar-* in a tmux because all of a sudden, without warning, yarnd started throwing hundreds of gigabytes of files with names like yarn-avatar-62582554 into /tmp, which filled up the entire disk and started crashing other services.

I also think you may be running a version that had a bug and lacked cleanup of those temp files

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I will have a look but I suspect it has something to do with the open nature of the external endpoint. I closed this loophole recently due to other reasons myself.

In-reply-to » Some bad code just broke a billion Windows machines - YouTube -- This is a really good accurate and comical take on what happened with this whole Crowdstrike global fuck up.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org so in other words, their own entire sections of global industries that are using this rubbish crowd, strike antivirus/endpoint detection, piece of crap that are infection effectively in violation of the terms of conditions of the service? 🤔

That’s some good sleuth thing that @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org 🙇‍♂️

In-reply-to » @movq I do that constantly, on the Fediverse. I often type long replies, disagreeing, or agreeing with someone, read it over and over, just to realise there isn’t anything to gain by it, and scrape it.

@bender sometimes having the open honest and transparent conversation and discussion is more valuable than anything to be individually gained. 😅 it helps us learn!

In-reply-to » @prologic @lyse It’s better this way. 😂 I don’t like all this negativity in tech. We tend to focus on bad aspects too much, imho. Then again, it’s really easy to focus on bad stuff, simply because there’s so much of it. 😂

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Who says it’s bad stuff or negativity? These are lessons to be learned and things to gain experiences from right?

In-reply-to » @lyse What about "Click to Load"?

@bender i’m thinking it’s probably worth to try and implement both features as use for configurable preferences just so that we can see what it’s like. 🤣 The default, of course would be the regular pagination that exists now.

In-reply-to » @lyse What about "Click to Load"?

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org So you neither like “Click to Load” nor “Infinite Scroll” eh? I mean I sort of get it, infinite scroll is kind of annoying as you never really know wtf is going on. Click to Load misses out on “how many pages”, “what page you’re on”, etc. But is it really that bad? 🤔

Hmmm according to this you are right! I wonder what kind of crypto they use?

In-reply-to » The “Matrix Experiment”, i.e. running a Matrix server for our family, has failed completely and miserably. People don’t accept it. They attribute unrelated things to it, like “I can’t send messages to you, I don’t reach you! It doesn’t work!” Yes, you do, I get those messages, I just don’t reply quickly enough because I’m at work or simply doing something else.
