Taking a break after 1.5 weeks of travel, city life, hard work, camping, and kayacking

I guess that most git-lfs users are ones who are ok with cloning a repo downloading all the files in it, and most git-annex users want to avoid that a lot of the time and only access the subset of files they need.

So it would make sense that git-annex repos just tend to be a lot bigger than git-lfs repos, on average.

By volume that is... I think git-lfs probably has more users, based on eg debian popcon.

This is an apples to oranges comparison though in a lot of ways. Source code + issues + artifacts vs raw and processed data.

What I was really interested in is which of git-annex and git-lfs stores more data.

If we assume that less than half of Github is git-lfs, which seems reasonable, and also assume that Gitlab is about as big, and assume that most git-lfs data is stored on those two... Well, that's a lot of assumptions, but it seems likely that git-annex >= git-lfs

what's really wild though is that yeah, this is a lot of data, on the order of 60 million filing cabinets full of text... but it's also just a few hundred modern hard drives

Been summing up reports about the sizes of all the scientific data stored using and it at least 3-5 petabytes, and growing by at least 2 petabytes per year currently.

In 2022, Github consisted of ~4 petabytes of data (excluding replicated data).

This is also in the neighborhood of the total size of the Library of Congress's digital collections, which was 3 petabytes in 2012.

Dunno who will win this race, but I'm surprised to be in it. ;-)

now considers a symlink to "git~1" something git fsck should warn about, on Linux, because on Windows, that happens to be a way to refer to the .git directory.

I've hacked panorama-view to display a scrolling overview of open tabs.
It really does make cleaning up a large number of open tabs, reordering tabs etc much easier.

Pondering releasing this as a new firefox extension, though I'd have to do significant cleanup of my hacking.

question: Do either or have a way to display open tabs in a grid as mini windows?

On desktop that is... on mobile all web browsersdo it automatically! As shown in this screenshots of firefox.

FWIW I'm asking because I've been told this interface is very useful for someone with ADHD to keep on top of their tabalanche.

Working on a design for an inexpensive ground mount array.

Brightmount EG4 is favored for low cost, I'd need 8 of them for 32 panels. With concrete, that comes to $3288.

Ironridge is champaign quality and price... approx $5000.

But... I have an idea for Ironridge on a pressure treated wood frame, which will cost just $2088!

Turns out GM-BRC3-01-M1 will perfectly fit a 4x4 post (3.5" actual), since the 3" pipe it's designed for is also 3.5" actual. Just round off the corners..

This rainy week has been challenging for baking, it takes 25% of my battery to bake a loaf, but I've managed to make 2. This one ran the battery down to 9%.
