Hi! I write docs. I like to try different platforms/tools for writing those docs to see what works best. I also like to preview them locally before I push them online.
What I'm saying is, my terminal is a f***ed hellscape of virtual envs and hidden config folders. Please help.

"up to five" architects and engineers WOW SO GENEROUS AND SUSTAINABLE dear god

On this dreary Monday morning, please enjoy My First Browser Extension, now available for Firefox Add-ons (Chrome review pending)
This is an early Christmas gift built on request, but let it be a beacon for everyone struggling with self-doubt
One for the digipres book club: anyone read this one? I'm enjoying (well, "enjoying", it's good is the point)
Help for an XML novice: I have a set of individual XML files/records. I want to extract the value of two or three elements in each record and export those to, e.g. a CSV.
Can I do this with XPath?
Happy World Digital Preservation Day, #digipres club!
Taking a Friday afternoon campus-wide server outage as an opportunity to catch up on #digipres reading: NDSA Levels of Preservation 2.0, DLF's Levels of Born-Digital Access, NARA's file format preservation plans.....quite the month!
Next Thursday, for World Digital Preservation Day I'll be live-streaming configuration of new environments for the EaaSI Sandbox. Please tune in and chat Linux, RDM, QEMU and EaaSI with me!

Hold on to your (Red) hats
Does anyone know of any good tutorials or resources for learning Docker? Like a Carpentry or Programming-Historian style intro?
maybe don't set up Docker and bridged networks for VMs willy-nilly on your laptop when you have no idea how networking works and then spend waaaaaaay too much time trying to figure out why you can't connect to the department SMB share
Can't even read fiction in peace anymore
I'm in a podcatcher conundrum:
Pocket Casts is much better designed (other than their WILD use of the word "archive") but is missing Stitcher-exclusive shows and back catalogs
Stitcher has the Premium content but alphabetizes shows starting with "The" under "T"
What do I do
Howdy! If you're interested at all in the BitCurator/EaaSI crossover hackathon next week at iPres, why not sign up for our dedicated Slack space?
If you're not going to Amsterdam, no worries - neither am I! We hope the hackathon can be a launching pad for a number of ongoing communal documentation and scripting projects that we've always wanted to see/make. Suggest, converse, contribute!
