Today I remembered: to get PostgreSQL working with node.js in Fedora

1) Install and set up postgresql using the Fedora-specific instructions.
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PostgreSQL

2) Install and start an identd server.
sudo dnf install -y oidentd
sudo systemctl enable oidentd
sudo systemctl start oidentd

TIL: In order to get a YubiKey working on a Fedora system, I need

1) YubiKey's rules in my /etc/udev/rules.d -- https://github.com/Yubico/libu2f-host/blob/master/70-u2f.rules

2) The rules need to be changed to remove the hidraw KERNEL and SUBSYSTEM, because my key shows up under the usb subsystem.

3) sudo udevadm control --reload && sudo udevadm trigger

There's also a u2f-hidraw-policy package, but it didn't do the trick with my YubiKey.

Cute open-source variant of Worms Armageddon.

Note to self: Chrome has a (relatively) easy way to IndexedDB diagnostic data from users -- chrome://indexeddb-internals/ and Download from the desired origin.

Another surprise from the future: Steve Ballmer did something really really good!

Things I needed to do to get snappy built on windows: msys2 (linked), msys didn't work, and the command below.

pacman -S autoconf automake make mingw-w64-x86_64-libtool mingw-w64-x86_64-pkg-config mingw-w64-x86_64-gcc

I read some of the 4th edition of "Readings in Database Systems" while taking MIT's databases course (6.830). Glad that the 5th edition is conveniently available for free online!
