@liaizon No, I'm sure that's fine. It's been a while, but I think I just set mine up with grub as the default for convenience.

If I remember right efibootmgr only has macOS selected after an upgrade. So I think you could use it to set macOS as the first option and Ubuntu as the second option and then it _should_ show up when you hold down the option key, but boot into macOS by default.

@liaizon (there's a lot more info there, but you should only have to worry about changing the boot order)

@liaizon Pretty much every time I update macOS the boot order gets reset. If you boot into a live USB you can use efibootmgr to change the boot order making Ubuntu boot before macOS.

This seems to be a pretty good overview of how to use efibootmgr: linuxbabe.com/command-line/how.

There are many forest fires in Mexico at the moment, which is why Mexico City is in a pollution contingency plan. The fires are concentrated in avocado-growing regions: people are illegally burning down forest to turn it into avocado monocultures, and taking advantage of a loophole in land-use laws: sinembargo.mx/16-05-2019/35819

The article says those avocados get exported to Japan, Canada, and Europe.

So if you live there, maybe try to eat something else?

@annika That would be really disappointing since online bill pay is pretty standard. I hadn't used paper checks for years even before switching to Simple.

TIL – Using conditional entries in .gitconfig to automatically manage #git identities based on the working directory. Nice!

A few pictures from a recent walk to the ponds near my house. The primary goal was a GPS track so I could add a new path to OpenStreetMap.

@platypus Haha, don't worry Microsoft will definitely undo those regedit changes in a future update anyway.

@platypus Every once in a while I need legit Office to edit documents for work, otherwise I could ditch Windows. But I should just run a VM on Linux and call it good. I just hate to use a pirated copy or pay for a license for a VM I only use a couple times a year.
