Decided to give Firefox another go, so I checked out the recommendations at privacytools.io to see what they recommended. Some of the browser extensions I had been using in Google Chrome, but I'm blown away with about:config, and the level of customization and control the user is allowed. I had been lulled into a false sense of security by Chrome, and naivly thought I had some level of control in the advanced settings menu. #firefox really takes things to another level for customization.
When I got into IT back in the day, I embraced Google Chrome and never looked back. Now that I've gone down the privacy/self-hosted rabbit hole, Google Chrome is difficult to accept on my personal computer. I had been using Irridium Browser and was generally fine with it, but CVE-2019-13720 really spooked me. Irridium only updates a couple times a year, so I can't see how they can keep up with security vulnerabilities. #chrome
I wonder if it was a previously blocked ad network they started using, a change in the iOS Firefox app, or something else
At work, we’re trying to fill some positions for software developers who specialize in robotics. I have close to 1000 people in my LinkedIn network, and if I do a search for #CUDA among them, only 15 show up. Of those, only 1 has any real CUDA experience. This job market is insane.

Started my second #Rimworld game with three new colonists. They now belong to the nation of Narnia and live in Magictown. Their main industry so far is kidnapping.
Alright so I finally finished my first (successful) #Rimworld game. I flew away with 9 colonists, including one of the original 3 (tho he had had become a wild man and we kept him sedated until launch). We were under siege by a huge mob of pirates, and they managed to quickly shell all of my supplies and critical rooms. I had to leave one colonist behind. On his way to the ship, he needed one last food binge, and then got hit by a shell.
The main problem with ansible that ive hit is that ansible does t know where python is on the ubuntu VMs ive been spinning up. So far, ive gotten around this by manually installing python on my ubuntu machines so that ansible can run.
So my goal this week is to figure out how to just run ansible on a vanilla vm without installing python every time
