I was helping a robot called Mal become a human in Borderlands 2. His insights on human nature seem accurate. #game #borderlands2

The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

For legacy reasons, everyone's name starts with "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;".

Thanks to /prog/'s SICP meme, there are no short of anime girls with programming language books. But other topics such as infosec or electronics are completely absent, making them a bit boring. Perhaps it would be good idea to use some image processing algorithm (just call GIMP or OpenCV?) to perform the job automatically... Creating them manually is too time-consuming, as lots of hard edges are needed to be smoothed...

Yeah, I know about Hackintoshes. But I don't have time to fight with kexts and other crap, when Linux and, ironically, Windows works ootb on almost every hardware I can throw them.

I guess it's time to say sorry to Windows, because of god-damn EDA software. :<

You know, sometimes I'm considering migration to the Mac platform - a sweet spot with both real POSIX compatibility and supported commercial software.

Unfortunately, there is a big no-no for me: hardware.
Almost no expandability, which recently Apple is partially restoring with the new Mac Pro. Obviously with proprietary standards, just because.
Mac Mini? Good luck replacing RAM or SSD when it will break.

@ParadeGrotesque @SDF isn’t pendrive with fresh Windows installer a real instant solution for every problem with Windows anymore? ;D

The Ugly Truth about "Elixir" pleroma don't want you to know.

Do you have any protips for recovering deleted directory (with subdirectores) from ext4 partition?


I love archive.org in general and think they do important work.

The trouble begins when they make public archives of personal data that people assume would eventually go away at some point.

The assumption is wrong, but it's made anyway.

I also keep making that mistake despite knowing better. There's something about social networks that make you reveal more than you intended to the entire public, and then not realize it's not going away.

Maybe a closed social platform isn't a bad idea. :think_unamused:

@fribbledom I still have my old 8GB Emtec pendrive somewhere in my bag. Damn, I feel old D:
