why should you write CLI & terminal software in 2019?
well, there are plenty of reasons, but a really good one is that desktop computing is in a state of relentless decline (backed by megacorp fiat that it be murdered ASAP) and the terminal will still be cockroaching along decades after it's impossible to use any of the GUI paradigm stuff that worked just fine in like 1998-2010.

The year is 2019 and I can’t buy a good majority of consumer technology because we lack privacy legislation and consumer protections. Example: it’s absurd that my TV came with spyware that can’t be turned off or avoided; I had to stop it from phoning home at the network level. It also came with an arbitration clause and a clause waiving the right to a class action lawsuit.

what happened to fedora-riscv[.]tranquillity[.]se?
it's been down for a few days, haven't been able to update my RISC-V fedora install
FWIW it is still mentioned on https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/RISC-V
This might well be the creepiest #Google page ever: All the purchases a user has ever done. If the user receives a confirmation email for a purchase they made, the user is not notified that Google collected and displays this piece of information in this page. There is no explanation why they are collecting all the purchases in one page, and apparently there is no way to opt out of this or even delete the purchases from the list.

@jalcine @clacke DRM isn't about asking people to pay. Copyright law already does that, and DRM is copyright vigilantism. DRM is about restricting what people can do with stuff they already paid for, to make sure that they can't treat it like something they own. DRM is about treating your clients as your enemies. It's inherently adversarial.
Alright, resolved with no downtime.
I didn't realize that the upgrade to Mastodon 2.6.0 *removed* the old rake tasks when tootctl was added. So, we weren't cleaning remote images. This caused the disk to fill up at 2018-12-19 15:10 UTC. I had mistakenly set up an alert for "Utilization" rather than "Disk Capacity", so Server Monitor never warned me about this.
* Add correct alerts (done)
* Update cron job to use tootctl (done)
* Ensure cron failures email me
RISC-V update on Debian:
Debian 9.5 contains dpkg version 1.18.25 which now recognizes riscv64 as ARCH codename, so packages with support for RISC-V are now supported by dak, meaning they can be accepted in the normal Debian infra. Several essential packages could therefor move to the unstable branch.
Around 84% of all packages have now been build.
Kernel 4.19 has landed in unstable, which contains various fixes relevant for RISC-V hardware.
