I get paid by my primary contracting customer via quickbooks bill pay services. These payments take several days to hit my bank. Now I know why there is a delay.
Quickbooks has a payday loan service. They have started pushing their payday loans in payment notification emails.
"Hey, for some mysterious reason, it takes MANY days for this payment to get to you... why not engage with our payday loan services until it finally arrives?"
Intuit is scum. Why do so many people do business with them?
Hello lockdown my old friend. As I place my household back into no-outside-contact mode. My privilege is showing.
Am very glad to be here. As opposed to back over there. Heard from a friend in prison about his day. Somebody stabbed over a small debt, and reciprocal retribution. He pretends it's no big deal.
Things could be worse than stuck inside a house with grocery delivery, gigabit internet and a few guitars. This is downright cozy. Who needs other people anyway.
How to stop Windows 10 Defender from uploading your files to Microsoft
Solved for now...
Guess it was a bad idea to put an extra nginx proxy container in front of the app to tweak nginx config. A bit irritated that I don't understand why that broke only some http requests and not others. They all seemed to make their way through to mastodon.
I have a timeline again at least
I have zero knowledge on how mastodon works, so making observations loaded with assumptions here.
This server is responding to what appears to be federated timeline updates with 401 errors. These are POST requests to /inbox
The application server sees these requests, routes them to a controller, then responds with 401.
Only change from old server to new is moving to traefik from nginx-proxy...
After seeing these postcards, had to buy a copy of "The Lost Restaurants of Tulsa" for mom.
Casa Bonita was too big, and not always busy. Instead of closing sections, you could still sit wherever you wanted. Each table had a flagpole. When you needed service, you ran the flag up the flagpole so the wait staff could cover a larger area efficiently.
I remember a carousel in the middle of the arcade, but memory's fuzzy. Maybe that was somewhere else...
I'm not alone in seeing this for what it is. And I'm saddened at my certainty that it doesn't matter.
It's not hard to guess which deep pocketed corporations would have motive to pull off PR attacks against RMS. Just visit stallman.org and spend some time reading the "What's bad about" sections.
To anybody who has experienced such attacks themselves, the components are universally obvious. Scary frightening accusations of high drama. Laughably scant or misleading evidence to support the accusations.
Who wants to bet the first agenda of an RMS replacement at the FSF is redrafting a weaker GPL?
Grabbed ticket to see Dinosaur Jr in November. Pandemic will evaporate by then right?
TIL example.com and example.org are special IANA-managed reserved domain names.
I guess that makes them slightly safer to use as test-account placeholder data
TIL oxygen on earth is a temporary thing. A few billion years ago, conditions rapidly occurred. And a billion years from now, there will not be enough oxygen to support plant life!
I'm a gay software developer, nerd, gamer, furry, and otherwise mostly boring frood who sometimes knows where his towel is.
