full frontal with samantha bee has been running circles around her late-night peers from her first episode. those peers are all men, and samantha bee and her writers, an unusually diverse group by writers’ room standards, have been joyfully hammering away at the patriarchy since the show first aired a little over a year ago. it’s not all periods and abortion rights, though, with plenty of segments tackling less-gendered issues like gun control and the “alt-right.” if bee is lauded for breaking new ground simply because she’s a woman heading up a satirical late-night show, that obscures the reality: she’s damn good at what she does. most episodes have at least one segment that leave me yelling “fuck yeah!” at the tv, and the clips frequently light up the social media feeds o...

ssdreporter is an application that checks the health of your internal solid state drives (“ssd” aka “flash storage”). since ssds have a limited life-time determined by the number of write operations, it is important to keep an eye on your ssd status. ssdreporter can warn you by e-mail or on-screen each time the health of your ssd decreases and/or when the health falls below the ‘warning’ or ‘error’ thresholds. the current status of your ssds is also always easily recognizable because ssdreporter changes its icon (optionally in the menubar) from green to yellow (warning threshold) and finally red (error threshold) as the ssd health decreases. note that only ‘internal’ ssds are supported, disks connected via usb/firewire/thunderbolt/etc do not work with ssdreporter.what's...
