We start, around the turn of the millenium, with a dot on the map: a small city where tickets to the local cinema cost only two dollars. Just outside city limits sat a parsonage, inwhich memorable history was being formed:

"That's so easy, even Zach can read it!" called one of the others.

Now, others there were, in contrast to the big people, who, here, seemed to run the joint by joint-ownership.

I was beckoned toward a newspaper, where a three-panel cartoon was being indicated.

"Here, read this!"

My first test of skill... would I succeed, proving my capability, or fail, showing the known universe that I was most inferior.

Panel 1: Garfield sits on the counter, saying "Zzzzzzzz" Panel 2: Garfield is still sitting on the counter, Jon is watching. Garfield says "Zzzzzzzz" Panel 3: Jon breaks the pattern of Zee's, and says ________...

I couldn't do it. I was the only person who didn't know how to read.

[PATCH] See how srht handles attached patches a day ago

From Zach DeCook to ~sircmpwn/email-test-drive

Probably should've just asked in the sourcehut users email list...

anyway, this part would be 'merge request description',
or [PATCH 0/2] ...

I think it's a fairly common use case, as attaching files
to an email is something most users and email clients are capable of.

though it includes more context-switching, it also makes it harder
to make a mistake.

`git format-patch HEAD~2` also is simpler, more unix-y.

https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Differences_from_Linux

doesn't really describe why. I think it may have to do with wanting to keep showing the standard android filesystem with accurate paths (maybe for rooted users?).

They do offer a simple chroot wrapper, so this workaround isn't *necessary* for users willing to chroot.

I'm happy to see something at least somewhat working for this critical feature in alps.

I started an approach on this a while back, but didn't complete it, basically the idea was

Recommended domain registrars 4 months ago

From Zach DeCook to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Dear Drew,

I currently own one domain (registered through google),
and am hoping to get a second.

I'm wondering if you have any recommendations for registrars. As far as features go, I would like my contact information kept off of whois, as well as auto renewal by credit card.

Crapfully yours,

Re: [PATCH] * Cmake: Allow specification of directory for Man installation 7 months ago

From Zach DeCook to ~pixelherodev/knightos

And for clarification, this patch is for
https://github.com/KnightOS/genkfs

(though if it could be applied to other repos, that would be cool)

In trying to package for brew, the man pages weren't being installed 
properly.

> Homebrew requires that man pages live under share.

The common convention is to use a variable called 
`CMAKE_INSTALL_MANDIR`, so it can be configured.
