The right says the left can't meme, but then their sense of humour seems to largely revolve around needlessly intentionally mocking and offending minorities just trying to have rights they deserve and such, based on what I've seen

It's sad, really, how some people can't seemingly comprehend humour beyond this, and makes me wonder what kind of conditions they grew up in to become such non-compassionate people

Stop saying antifa.

Start saying anti-fascist.

Make them say out loud what they’re really afraid of.

I wish that we as software developers did more to combat racism in our communities than rename things from "master to main, slave to secondary, etc to etc". While these naming changes are progress, there are bigger issues such as the unfair pay gaps that need to be resolved too.

I can't believe I have to say this but: Don't use Cloudflare, and especially don't use Cloudflare on your Tor hidden service.

Does a kilt count as formal/fancy wear?

Someone invited me to a thing in about 1.5 weeks and said I need "fancy clothes", and I think the closest thing I have is a kilt

Also I have absolutely no clue what I'm supposed to wear with it, if I do wear it

I wish there was hardware in the mid tier price and performance range but instead of gaming crap with RGB it had purely functional designs aimed for enthusiasts and workstation use

Props to Noctua for doing this btw

Is this just me, or does anyone else find managing SSH keys too clunky and convoluted to use them over passwords?

I kinda want to order a 30€ Thinkpad T480s lid since I heard those are aluminium, unlike the one on my normal T480, and would probably protect the thing a bit better

Moving all these stickers would be a pain though, and I don't really want to risk breaking the screen because the panel is expensive

If you don't want cops or military using your open / sharealike software and you actually mean it, then consider Ethical Open Source (EOS) licensing options which are analogous to your project's current licensing scheme. Lip service means nothing when your facial recognition tech is being used for state surveillance and oppression and you could throw a legal wrench in the cogs of the machine.

(check their related licenses page for a more complete list)


Tempted to install OpenWRT on my router since apparently it has decent IPv6 support with actual docs, unlike EdgeOS, so I might still be able to make the best of the crappy /64 block my ISP gives

at this point just discard the idea of TLDs and let people register whatever they want

you: “catlike reflexes”

I have conflicted feelings about this one sticker I have (the one mentioned in my previous toot)

It's from an airshow focusing on military aircraft, and I like the sticker because I'm very much interested in aviation technology and things related to it

But on the other hand, I don't like it because I feel like it's endorsing the existence of flying death machines built solely for war, which' existence I obviously do not support

Moving stickers is so hard

One got slightly damaged near the edge when moving it from my laptop to my PC's side panel :blobcatsad:

I thought tech is cool because I can make interesting things with it, can automate boring things away, etc, but the larger picture is that capitalists fucked everything up real bad, and most of the tech exists only to exploit people and sell more tech

Time to brick my router by upgrading to a 2.x.x series firmware
