Is the RHCSA worth it?
  • Depends on your end goal, don't pay for yourself. Tech is hard to break into, certificates can help elevate your resume when you do not have a network to leverage. It's often good to "top off" your resume when market trends shift and you are lacking experience. For instance right now AWS certificates are likely strong additions if you don't have any cloud background. My rhcsa helped get my first job and is a positive for legacy LAMP and java shops. Trending forward: you will primarily be using it to support Linux based docker containers and a lot of the networking and hardware configuration will be obfuscated away. There is a non-zero amount of file ownership and user groups; but existing organizations will have figured that out already.

  • Basically the extent of my IPv6 knowledge
  • This thread is a dumpster fire, routing infrastructure, solar panel addresses, we are adding this to EVERYTHING WE ALREADY HAVE that is growing exponentially. I work on an L7 support team, regular users are clueless on how this stuff is setup and apparently have strong stupid opinions. Anyone still reading disable ipv4 in your home network and try to roll forward. You will fail, and finite numbers are finite.

  • Why do many search engines seem to ignore operators (e.g. exact phrases, term exclusions, OR, etc.)? Is there a good reason for having a dumb 1997-level search logic that I'm not seeing?
  • It's because websites interpret those characters differently because of how coding requires using the physical qwerty keyboard. Essentially ">" gets used as a compator operator in programming languages, which means that it's used as a tool to instructs the computer how to do things. When we need to display the symbol, we use ">" as an "escaped character" which basically means treat it as the symbol, not the instruction set. Often search engines will use a very powerful tool called a regular expression which looks like this for phone numbers: ^(\d{3})\s\d{3}-\d{4}

    And each character represents something, ^ means start with. \d means digit { means 3 of whatever's in front of me }. Breaking apart the search parameters is pretty complex and it needs to happen FAST, so at a certain point the developers just throw away things that can be a security concern like special characters like &^|`"'* specially because they can be used to maliciously attack the search engine.

    For other characters:

  • Basically the extent of my IPv6 knowledge
  • I'm sorry but how? We have appliances with dockerfiles, micro containers for remote controls, extensive botnets of virtual machines, centuries in the future when we have expanded into the solar system and trillions of humans all having millions of unique applications with addresses, it's inevitable to hit a finite number. When every square meter of smart road has an routable address; we will likely be rewriting networking anyways. The only players pushing IPv6 transition are networking companies because a new standard requires new hardware.

  • goddamnit
  • Skill issue, the only actual drawback is that some legacy systems whitelisted image extensions and haven't been updated. Even then just take a screenshot and upload that.

  • *Permanently Deleted*
  • Llms hit memory exhaustion between prompts, each "slide" is an individual generation which is why it feels so discontinuous. This will be really exciting after a couple breakthroughs though, especially when it can reference old generations.

  • Basically the extent of my IPv6 knowledge
  • Cisco as a client tried to force ipv6 for their managed service and after an entire quarter of attempting to resolve it, we actually disabled it for their virtual address per their request. IPv4 has issues and IPv6 promises solutions, but it's not a stable platform yet. This appears ignorant but is based on truth. IPv6 is also eventually going to hit exhaustion with the frequency we spin up virtual machines, it's okay to skip a bad generation.

  • EU accuses Microsoft of antitrust violations for bundling Teams with O365
  • It's a play by monopolys. They create a large platform (often free to start), integrate it with a bunch of other stuff, then charge you to use it. They can use the invested cost to leverage anyone on the platform, because it's often an expensive lengthy process to halt processes. The ruling is essentially stating that Microsoft either needs to allow non Microsoft accounts to chat on teams or allow you to remove your word subscription without affecting your email. Both of those are good things for consumers, but Microsoft wants to hold all of the cards on all sides, and start offering bundles like cable companies. All just to limit your options and squeeze you when they want more.

  • Windows 11 is now automatically enabling OneDrive folder backup without asking permission
  • I work with Linux for a living and am finding the transition frustrating myself. It feels like every new is just revealing more stuff I have to configure before it works, then usually get hit with the backend of the solution as well. Be sure to check /var/log/anythingrelevant for the system reboots for logs. My display driver kept crashing.

  • Ironing
  • Ironing is really only required for "dress up" clothing, casual cotton clothing is generally presentable if you wash, machine dry and fold/hang while still warm. You will have a crease and it will resolve itself in a few hours. Polyester blends also come in several utility blends like the stain free, moisture dispersing and wrinkle resistant. I'm realizing reading this thread that some people iron all of their clothing, but in my home we typically only iron our formal occasion attire (rare).

  • Redbox missed a multimillion-dollar payment it couldn’t afford to miss
  • As the drone giving that news, it was so bad for TV shows. Someone rented Planet Earth which came in a 4 disc set for $100. If you lose 1 disk, we required ordering another full set. Someone lost the entire collection and was required to pay $400. I loved that job, but they made terrible decisions towards the end.

  • Why in 2024 do people still believe in religion? (serious)
  • On point, additionally religion has also effectively associated itself with spirituality. It's also associated itself with caring for others, volunteering, community, togetherness and acceptance. Additionally it's a great place to network and organize communities. Even if belief has faded, tradition is usually important with that group of people.

  • Share Your Story: The Impact of Losing Access to 500,000 Books
  • As time goes on, we should be simplifying laws, not creating more. The reductionist view is that content should be freely available as long as the IP isn't being developed/marketed still. And in order to prevent practices like Disney's vaulting we need a developed IP rotation of every X years to prevent IP hoarding. At it's root copyright law is rooted in greed, after you are done with the initial release, it just becomes part of everyone's culture.

  • Yeah, you wouldn't want to look silly
  • As the other user stated it's for going to large events (corporate comicon). What they failed to mention is that it's also considered a safety issue to some extent. It also labels you as a tourist and likely shows that you are carrying spending money. It's relevant in medium sized cities, but larger ones the tourism is massive income and the locals know there will be consequences for acting out.
