comment Can I refuse a customer service because they make me uncomfortable?
This scenario sounds almost exactly like the example in the cheesy sexual harassment awareness video that everyone had to watch at my last job. (I'm not calling your scenario cheesy-- the video was cheesy, with terrible actors. Your scenario sounds quite unpleasant, and like a textbook example of a hostile workplace.)

comment What is your way to create good passwords that can actually be remembered?
Yeah, I understand the theory behind diceware, but I guess I'm skeptical that it leads to easy to remember passphrases. Was it 'righthorsebatterystapler'? No, 'correctdonkeybatteriespaperclip'?

comment What is your way to create good passwords that can actually be remembered?
@JasonCoyne yeah, that is a very good point, but I think it is one that can likely be made about any password that can be easily remembered. If someone is targeting you specifically, they may also know your taste in music, so even picking an obscure lyric in an obscure song by an obscure artist may not work.

comment elasticsearch - what to do with unassigned shards
Thanks for this! I was having a hell of a time figuring out why my shards were not being allocated after I added a new node to the cluster-- the new node was slightly newer than the old nodes.
