holy shit nix is actually so nice for building old ass projects that never pinned versions

andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.

archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.

here's an example log: gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5

boost this if you care about foss in any way.

wish there was a calendar app that could scale the opacity of recurring events based on their frequency of occurrence, for ex:

- 100% opacity for things that only happen once
- 80% opacity for things that happen 3 times a year
- 50% opacity for things that happen biweekly
- 25% opacity for things that happen every tuesday

maybe put an actual formula behind determining the actual values but something like that would make my calendar a LOT cleaner and focused

Is there merit in using multiple emails to avoid the single point of failure?

the last time i overhauled my weechat config, i had forgotten to save my freenode password, so now it just times out when trying to identify me and then forcefully nicknames me Guest#####. honestly i haven't found this to be an annoyance so now i just go by Guest##### (numbers change every time i reconnect to freenode)

Got one of my servers working with nix os and it was actually a relatively ok experience; some of the configs seem a bit flaky but as a declarative-config distro I think it does a fair job

Let's see how this plays out over time

it's 2020 and we're still preventing people from pasting passwords?
