Tripel Karmeliet is so good. My boss bought me some because I missed out on going to Brussels this year. I work with nice people.

Probably a good bookmark to set so you can easily check how to fixup everything when you fucked up while using #git.

Also, the site gets my "quote of the day" award for its first sentence:

"Git is hard: screwing up is easy, and figuring out how to fix your mistakes is fucking impossible."

In light of earlier events, I have added an IP blacklisting bot to drop any connections coming from the offending IP address. Any other IPs being used to create offensive materials will face a similar block.

Looks like at 1:02 this morning an account was started up using an Indian IP address and a GMX (never heard of them) email address in order to spam offensive content. The account has been removed.
