Web Development / If you do a lot of SSH/terminal work...

and you don't use tmux already you really should learn how to use it.

Tmux has two really good features that make life in a term window much easier:

1 It allows you to split up a screen into as many physical spaces as you want.  See picture.

2 It allows you to close off and relaunch a session without losing your workflow or to lose your place in the process.  Any application/tasks launched will continue run in the background and you could check in on them from anyplace you like.  That means you could start a task at the office, close down the term, go home and ssh and relaunch tmux to pick up the processes like you never logged out.

"The hacker changed the sodium hydroxide from about 100 parts per million to 11,100 parts per million," Gualtieri said on Monday, during a briefing about the attack. "This is obviously a significant and potentially dangerous increase. Sodium hydroxide, also known as lye, is the main ingredient in liquid drain cleaners. It's also used to control water acidity and remove metals from drinking water."

Water Cooler / Coronavirus variant: What does your Debbie say?

>UK coronavirus variant

I'm wondering if the current prevention wisdom will prove to be enough for this new variant.  Right now the spread seems to be blamed on noncompliance, but perhaps the new variant will need more than the standard 6 feet/mask/wash your hands recommendations?


PeerTube is a free and open-source, decentralized, federated video platform powered by ActivityPub and WebTorrent, that uses peer-to-peer technology to reduce load on individual servers when viewing videos.

Started in 2015 by a programmer known as Chocobozzz, development of PeerTube is now supported by the French non-profit Framasoft. The aim is to provide an alternative to centralized platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion.


PeerTube uses WebTorrent technology. Each server hosts a torrent tracker and each web browser viewing a video also shares it. This allows to share the load between the server itself and the clients as well as the bandwidth used through P2P technology.

The system works via a federation of instances run by independent entities. Each PeerTube server can host any number of videos by itself, and can additionally federate with other servers to let users watch their videos in the same user interface. This federation permits collectively hosting a large number of videos in a unified platform, without having to build an infrastructure comparable to that of the web giants. Each server is operated by and stays under the sole administration of a distinct entity.

The Amazon FBA Brexit bombshell has dropped which will significantly impact your Amazon business from the 1st of January 2021. Amazon’s UK FBA operations will be split from the EU with no more EFN (European Fufilment Network) and an end to Pan-European FBA inventory transfers between the UK and EU.
Amazon FBA Brexit Bombshell 1 – EFN

EFN allows you to fulfil orders from any Amazon European marketplace, while you ship your goods to Amazon’s fulfilment centres in just one country such as the UK.

From the 1st of January 2020 goods in Amazon’s UK fulfilment centres will no longer be used to fulfil orders in Europe. Effectively your sales opportunity from selling on Amazon UK dropped from 446 million EU consumers to 66 million brits.
Amazon FBA Brexit Bombshell 2 – Pan-European FBA

Currently, with Pan-European FBA, when you send your products to fulfilment centres in the UK, Amazon distribute them for storage across Europe. Your products become Prime eligible and visible to millions of customers, with faster delivery while you pay only UK local fulfilment fees.

This will end for stock in Amazon UK warehouses on the 1st of January 2021. However if you send stock to an Amazon warehouse in Europe then it will still be distributed to other European warehouse, with the exception that it won’t be sent back to the UK.

Jen is pumping them out.  We have three sizes available, small (child), medium (fits the ladies of our house) and large (head as big as mine).  DM me with your address and what you want.


Economics & Investing / Amid COVID-19, UBI starting in Spain
« on: April 06, 2020, 10:59:21 PM »
The move has been prompted by the coronavirus crisis, but Calvino told Spanish channel La Sexta that the measure, once rolled out, will remain after the pandemic is finally over.
No date was given for the rollout, but Calvino assured that the measure will be launched as soon as possible, and that the government is working out the details.

It is not yet known what the amount would be, but it is expected to be geared toward families and complement other social security measures pledged by the Spanish government, to support the population through the crisis.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s government rolled out a €200 billion package ($216 billion) last month to boost Spain’s economy, in line with stimulus packages introduced in some of the worst-hit countries.

Mortgage payments have been paused and struggling businesses will be given a cash boost as part of the “greatest mobilization of resources in Spain’s entire democratic history,” Sanchez said.

Spain saw record job losses in March, with 900,000 people losing their jobs over a three-week period since the start of the lockdown.

Water Cooler / Buy first class USPS shipping online
« on: April 06, 2020, 09:50:43 PM »
I ship first class for our Amazon/eBay FBM orders, neither interface allows shipping to addresses unless they are associated with orders.  The USPS website took down their first class label printing service and forces people to purchase Priority shipping unless they want to wait to buy stamps or are willing to go into a post office.  Doing some digging I learned that it is possible to buy first class labels from Paypal.  It is pretty straight forward, and is at a discount to boot (like Amazon and eBay).  Anyway, I think it is possible for anybody with a Paypal account to ship this way -- I assume most of us do.

With CV-19 and everyone avoiding human contact right now it is nice to have an at home option.  We're using this to ship some masks to friends and relatives.
