    @doctorlinguist The waiter said something about it being 100% monounsaturated fat. I dunno that I believe it, but I'd have eaten it anyway. Supposedly the cows get daily massages and a diet of beer and hot mash. That's a sweet gig, IMO.

        @doctorlinguist This restaurant had a 32 oz. Wagyū ribeye for two. I think it was $80. The Akaushi was just that night's special, so I couldn't pass. He said the fat was heart-healthy. 😂

          @doctorlinguist I had an amazing Texas-raised Akaushi ribeye last weekend. Might've been from these guys: https://heartbrandbeef.com/

            @jws His gene pool must've been particularly deficient in that department.

                @goldenskye I suspect you're right. 😂

                  MFW a contractor sends me his public SSH key, generates a new keypair, tries to use the new keypair, then complains he can't authenticate.

                    I don't guess I'm surprised, but Douane adds a ton of latency to network connections. Hrmph.

                        All right, that's set. There's not much introspection or log detail with Douane -- just the process name -- but I've got it starting on boot now.

                          Looks like Douane does what I'm looking for. It lacks the temporary-allow feature that Little Snitch has, but it's not at all difficult to compile. I just need to get the service to start on boot and run with it for a while.

                            Since @cgiffard mentioned Little Snitch the other day, I went looking for a Linux alternative. And I found one (maybe; install pending)! http://douaneapp.com/

                              @cgiffard That would be wonderful.

                                @cgiffard Yep. And I try to remind myself how hard it was for me to get started when I got those "RTFM n00b" responses years ago. It's personally challenging for me to choose to respond appropriately. / @duerig

                                  @duerig @cgiffard That's far too common, and it's just spiteful. But even privately, it's sometimes hard for me not to respond out of frustration when someone demonstrates an unwillingness to even try to solve the problem on their own.
