I'm trying to figure out why some older systems I have (bash 4.3.30) work a little differently to some with newer bash (5.1.8, say).
The difference is in what characters constitute a word boundary for the "(vi-)unix-word-rubout" readline function, which is what happens when you press Ctrl-W by default.
On newer systems, it does what I want: removes _up to the last path separator_. On older systems it removes the whole path, not stopping at "/" -- and then I punch the computer.
PSA: This is how you write a call to action:
"Vote, and vote for Biden, or you will be living in a fascist dictatorship. Even if you think Biden sucks, not voting for him makes it more likely that Trump will win."
1: action, 2: reason, 3: explanation.
Literally *everybody* who will see your post already agrees that Trump should not be president. But some of them *might* still have stupid ideas about the whole voting thing.
Didn't realize my wireless plan capped tethering speeds, but now it makes sense. When your phone gets ~10-15 mbps and your tethered computer gets .5 or .6 consistently, you know they're screwing w/ the service you paid for.
Welp, I'm ashamed it took me this long to realize, but changing the TTL on my computer seems to have released the throttling.
Another incredibly thoughtful post charting a potential direction for some—let’s say—inconsistent aspects of Rust. Beyond the content, I find the clarity, history, and introspection to be a model for how to articulate and advocate technical direction https://without.boats/blog/a-four-year-plan/

silicon valley VCs' best ideas of the 2020s:
-put a drone on something
-wrongness generator 3000 (uses more energy than a small nation)
-an app that is actually criminally underpaid workers in another country
-an app that is actually criminally underpaid workers in this country
-vrchat but it cost 20x to make and it fucking sucks
