Bad grammar ? Fuck you.
ssh -p 13336 firstname.lastname@example.org
Plox to change pw / regen hostkey / abolish pw-powered ssh login, as usually done.
Plz lemme know if you see any oddities in the operation of this box,
it is experimental iron.
znc configs are in /home/znc/.znc .
trb in /home/trb .
to switch off either, su to'em and crontab -e .
If q's/observations, plox to write in.
How what not to do #1 : no forced CR.
The unit of computer text is the line, and the line ==== the paragraph. There shall be no mixing of mark-up into the text ; if you don't like how your terminal flows long lines, fix your terminal.
The CR represents auctorial intent. It is not open to dillution / rewriting on the basis of the needs of the dumb fucking piece of shit iron. Either the dumb piece of shit iron works well enough to be tolerable in human society, or else it gets thrown out. Adults don't adjust their conversation/mores/behaviours/thoughts/anything else to fit in with children, nor humans to fit in with computers.
- box,\nit is bad,
- box, it is good.
Say it with me now!
How what not to do #2 No dangling questions.
If your recipe runs me into a question it doesn't also provide the answer for, your recipe is broken and the process dies there. It is not acceptable to expect the user to produce "obvious" answers that are in fact not obvious ; the criteria to discern the "in fact obvious" from the "not in fact obvious" is the given recipe.
How what not to do #2.1 Include the fucking fingerprint.
Yes, I get it, ssh sucks, bla bla bla. Whenever you provide a login include the fucking fingerprint holy shit what the fuck, why the hell not, it costs nothing to do.
How what not to do #3 No false statements.
znc configs are in /home/znc/.znc
No, they aren't. ZNC configs are in /home/znc/.znc/configs/znc.conf not in fucking half the path there. The only transformation that can be applied to the correct path to produce the given path yields
znc configs are in /home/znc/.znc/??????/???.????
which while correct self-obviously falls foul of #2 above, and is fucking ridiculous to boot.
How what not to do #3.1 No hiding of self-obvious idiocy into not so self obvious idiocy.
If you're going to fuck around with the path, you must quote the full /home/znc/.znc/??????/???.???? rather than the ablated /home/znc/.znc, so everyone watching can point and laugh at what a terrible job you did, rather than dubiously not understand what a terrible job you did.
How what not to do #4 No broken installs.
znc.conf says :
// Do NOT edit this file while ZNC is running!
// Use webadmin or *controlpanel instead.
Do I know whether ZNC is running or not ? Well, I suspect it's probably running, and of course
- linuxtards have made a mess of stopping/starting things, I don't know if I should just signal-kill it or service stop or maybe there's an apachectl or who the fuck even knows!
- no mechanism is specifically given for this task I will obviously have to do -- see #2 yet again
I suppose I should use the webadmin whatever the fuck that is then.
How can I access webadmin with my browser?
By default webadmin runs on the same PORT as your ZNC is accessible. So if you connect your IRC client to ZNC with server example.com and port 6667, then you would access webadmin by opening your web browser and going to the address http://example.com:6667.
Needless to say, this doesn't work (transparently because probably shut off "for safety", thus producing, out of the unreviewed and unpredicted interplay of various lobes of the rule tree, broken installs, which is the fucking point).
But let's suppose we don't know all that, and so we persevere :
If ZNC listens using SSL, use the HTTPS protocol (https://) instead of just HTTP (http://). If your web interface won't come up, please ensure that you are using the correct protocol for connecting.
Oh, I see, let's try that then... o look at that, it didn't work either, therefore we've wasted the time trying, we could have thrown our hands up earlier to better results, meaning, very practically, that we're being actively trained here to not follow things down the path.
Let's then sit together an' wonder why everyone all around seems to have been very well trained to superficiality. I wonder why it could be. Could it be because systematically the reward system's arranged in such a way ?
And who's responsible for that ?
Make the world a better place ; not an enlarged version of the same old shit. Thank you.
