18:26:30 <ChrisWarrick> ralsina: Could you perhaps use some magic to talk to the Debian folks to either update their Nikola package or remove it? It’s unusably ancient and harmful…
18:30:19 <ADubhlaoich> ChrisWarrick nations have risen and fallen trying to get Debian packages updated or removed at short notice
18:31:17 <ChrisWarrick> ADubhlaoich: they’re running v7.6.4, released on 22nd August 2015
18:32:22 <ADubhlaoich> There's no release date for stretch yet so getting an update in would take a while
18:32:28 <ADubhlaoich> Might be better off asking for a removal
18:44:28 <ralsina> I have no debian contacts :-)(
18:44:45 <ralsina> That was meant to be a :-(
18:44:51 <ralsina> Who's the maintainer?
18:45:19 <ralsina> Ha, on stable it's 7.1.0
18:45:56 <ralsina> Ok, pinging people, we'll see what happens
18:46:59 <ralsina> WAT it's not possible to report debian bugs via web???
18:49:01 <ralsina> sending email, like a farmer
19:03:45 <ToApolytoXaos> ralsina: you mean this? https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/nikola
19:03:55 <ChrisWarrick> https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=801796
19:04:00 <ChrisWarrick> off went an angry e-mail
19:06:35 <ToApolytoXaos> naughty naughty ChrisWarrick lol
19:06:45 <ToApolytoXaos> let's hope that your email will shake them a bit
19:07:52 <ToApolytoXaos> they know about the new version since 2016-09-05
19:43:49 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: I meant the instructions here https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting
19:44:09 <ToApolytoXaos> yeah I know what you mean
19:44:24 <ChrisWarrick> "hope you have a Debian machine with proper e-mail setup on it"
19:49:34 <ToApolytoXaos> yeah, that's the stupid part of theirs
19:50:32 <ralsina> not to mention they will never get a "I can't install debian" bug
19:52:11 <ChrisWarrick> eh, you can do that if you’re feeling adventurous
19:57:33 <ToApolytoXaos> lol
19:57:39 <ToApolytoXaos> obviously you don't like debian ralsina 
19:58:14 <ChrisWarrick> ToApolytoXaos: (do you realise who ralsina works for?)
19:58:47 <ToApolytoXaos> I have no idea ChrisWarrick 
19:58:56 <ChrisWarrick> ToApolytoXaos: Canonical.
19:58:59 <ToApolytoXaos> hahahaha :D
19:59:19 <ToApolytoXaos> I had no idea he was an Ubuntu guy
20:00:34 <ToApolytoXaos> I didn't know Canonical had office in Argentina
20:04:16 <ralsina> I don't like/dislike debian
20:04:39 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: it doesn't, > 90% of people in canonical work from home 
20:04:59 <ToApolytoXaos> can I work for them too?!
20:05:06 <ToApolytoXaos> what should I do?
20:05:17 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: http://www.canonical.com/careers
20:05:34 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: if you apply to any position tell them I sent you, if they hire you I get a bonus
20:05:36 <ToApolytoXaos> I presume you must be a guru to pass their standards
20:05:43 <ToApolytoXaos> hahahaha :D
20:05:56 <ralsina> nah
20:06:36 <ralsina> there's like 700 people in Canonical nowadays, can't all be geniuses. I am no genius myself :-)
20:07:23 <ToApolytoXaos> but you must be very talented to work for Canonical
20:07:35 <ralsina> it's just a job
20:07:42 <ralsina> don
20:07:45 <ralsina> oops
20:08:00 <ralsina> don't idealize it, that's not how it works :-)
20:11:14 <ralsina> most positions today seem to be rather high in the foodchain, tho
20:11:43 <ToApolytoXaos> it seems I lack the level of knowledge they request
20:11:51 <ToApolytoXaos> I'm too little next to those giants
20:11:59 <ralsina> "Junior System Reliability Engineer" is not a bad one, but it's office-based in Beijing
20:12:11 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: do you have a college degree?
20:12:58 <ToApolytoXaos> I have a simple Computer Science diploma
20:13:24 <ralsina> well, *I* don't
20:13:40 <ralsina> so, no excuses ;-)
20:13:45 <ToApolytoXaos> but for how many years have you been programming?
20:14:09 <ralsina> as a hobby? A lot. Actually being paid to code? First time on this job, at 42.
20:14:25 <ralsina> well, 40, but I was a manager at first, so not too much coding
20:14:36 <ToApolytoXaos> well, I haven't developed anything myself apart from stupid, simple tiny academic examples; that's all.
20:14:51 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: so, if you want to be a developer, you should start
20:14:56 <ToApolytoXaos> I have been technician all my life :(
20:15:05 <ralsina> I was a sysadmin!
20:15:22 <ToApolytoXaos> me too, but my official responsibility was pretty much everything
20:15:30 <ToApolytoXaos> still though, I can't find a job
20:15:36 <ToApolytoXaos> it's been 1.5 years now
20:15:40 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: it's difficult to get started on things, and it's hard to switch paths, but it can be done
20:16:00 <ToApolytoXaos> I know. You can get a rough idea what I *can* do or know here: https://stefanos82.github.io/
20:16:08 <ralsina> looking...
20:17:19 <ToApolytoXaos> that's just the surface of my real knowledge
20:17:48 <ralsina> right, so
20:17:59 <ralsina> are you willing to relocate?
20:18:03 <ToApolytoXaos> nope
20:18:15 <ralsina> I can't promise anything but I'll see if I see something
20:18:17 <ToApolytoXaos> besides, I have zero money available
20:18:32 <ralsina> well, fixing that's the point of getting a job :-)
20:18:42 <ToApolytoXaos> just to warn you a bit, I'm an introvert by nature and go crazy with anxiety when I feel really uncomfortable
20:18:48 <ToApolytoXaos> I run as fast as the wind!
20:19:11 <ToApolytoXaos> I have far too many insecurities
20:19:48 <ralsina> ack
20:19:48 * ToApolytoXaos would like to thank his ex for demolishing his self-esteem.
20:20:37 * ralsina goes back to work
20:20:42 <ToApolytoXaos> enjoy
20:20:50 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: I'll keep an eye open for things
20:20:55 <ToApolytoXaos> cheers mate
20:20:58 <ToApolytoXaos> it means a lot to me
20:20:59 <ralsina> ToApolytoXaos: if I see anything I'll ping you
20:21:02 <ralsina> np
