Another quick one.
There are scenarios when you want to

"SOME PROGRAM" cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified. macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware.

Whenever I start a significant amount of work on a codebase, I like to push up to GitHub a baseline branch. I’ve written about this before but to summarize, I like to get the lay of the land before I start creating changes. This allows me to build confidence in the CI process and makes debugging future problems easier.
With forking pyenv, I decided it would be smart to create a solid baseline here as well. Here’s what I did.continue reading →
Here’s a really quick one I wanted to share. Today I rode to Starbucks to get a nice weekend work session in. I’m working on some fun stuff such as Pungi, Revidian Auto, etc. I logged in to my MacBook Pro, connected to “Starbucks WiFi”, and the WiFi login/redirect screen never popped up.

I won’t go over them here (let me know in the comments if you want me to) but I will go over how I fixed this weird Tailscale and captive portal issue.continue reading →

pyenv is a very popular Python version manager that is maintained by people who are most certainly more knowledgable in Python than I am.
So I decided I am going to fork the project all by myself. 😄

Let’s start with part 1, the “why”.
Here’s a quick one.
Recently I needed to give one of my co-workers access to my personal Linux server. SSH felt like the easiest way to do that but I needed his public key. GitHub makes that easy.continue reading →
I tried doing this today and ran into a small hitch. The official Minecraft website gives you a .deb file to install. No package manager or instructions. A couple blog posts I found had instructions that worked, but gave instructions which I felt were too long or installed unnecessary things.
Here’s how to install Minecraft Java Edition on Ubuntu, short and sweet.continue reading →
