ChunkyReader is hands down my favorite comic reader for iPad. But it doesn't play well with vsftpd out of the box. The app uses libssh for ftp connections. This library uses the Extended Passive file transfer mode, which doesn't appear to be implemented in vsftpd as of yet. I've confirmed this on version 3.0.3. The app will authenticate to the server and then send the EPSV command, after which the connection just hangs until a timeout occurs. Since version 2, vsftpd has a cmds_denied parameter. So I blocked extended modes in my configuration:

cmds_denied=EPSV,EPRT

This causes vsftpd to respond with a "550 Permission denied" message to the app. The app then tries the regular PASV mode and the connection succeeds!

Forget where you shot that landscape or selfie? Google will remember that for you, using only clues in the image itself.​​

forever looking back
forever tormented
so clever in disguise
and never was she fully realized
take everything you have
take everything you thought you ever knew
and leave it for the goddess figure
true, I've been wrong
and I've been taught a lie
and can never go back
to the throes of a normal life
i'm in love with the world
time waits in spirals and in circuits and
we stay in peril and imperfect and
why wait for the silence to be heard when you are
the reason why i'm in love with the world
and when you follow in his shadow
you're devoured by your loss
some pay forever with their winnings
somе stay in debt forever
false I've been true
and it's a lonely line of work that we do
untо thee given nо reply nо affection so
I've been brought up believing a lie
her visiоn clearly burns in my eyes
sun stay surrealist аnd infinitе
give all the true power limitless
now I'm alone with a poison mind
it's enough to know

This came out pretty glitchy. Made with free software.

A drive failed in my btrfs array that has four encrypted disks:

Label: 'hogwarts' uuid
Total devices 4 FS bytes used 3.13TiB
devid 1 size 3.64TiB used 2.17TiB path /dev/mapper/gryffindor
devid 2 size 3.64TiB used 2.17TiB path /dev/mapper/slytherin
devid 4 size 2.73TiB used 1.24TiB path /dev/mapper/ravenclaw
* Some devices missing

The bad drive didn't even show up in the bios. So I pulled it out and plopped in a new drive to replace it:

# btrfs replace start 3 /dev/mapper/hufflepuff /mnt/hogwarts

Optionally watch it progress for a while:
btrfs replace status /mnt/hogwarts
...
Started on 10.Apr 12:40:05, finished on 10.Apr 15:13:14, 0 write errs, 0 uncorr. read errs

Good as new!
Multiple devices. A Btrfs filesystem can be created on top of many devices, and more devices can be added after the FS has been created. By default, metadata will be mirrored across two devices and data will be striped across all of the devices present. If only one device is present, ...

Salient advice about starting a career in tech.
"And if you go in with this mentality, even when startups fail, you succeed. If you put five years into building a company and team, you will end up with a great network of talented and motivated people, lots of first-hand experience, and often some management experience as well.
