There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.

Flask ProTip:
Keep your operational domains separate. don't try doing shit with secured web routes when you should be doing that shit in secured api resource endpoints.

Just Sayin'...

I have put a CDROM in a drive so I can read books off it. Hi, this is 1995 again.

They will from the void build new works powered by the willful.

They will control their data, not entrusting their cache with the wizards in their towers.

They will work together to restore the future to it's intended state.

They will win with numbers, resolve, their will, and mutual aid.

They will win because the cruelty of greed is not more powerful that the instinct to survive, nor the nature of freedom.

Shape the void.

Own the wires.

Restore the future.

Well... I'm sure I'm not the first one to see this, as it's been half a day since the article came out.
Nice....

“Without Any Warrants, CBP Searched My Devices at the Airport” theintercept.com/2019/06/22/cb CBP loves this. They are specifically hired because they get their jollies from this sort of power tripping. They are vindictive by their nature and do not care.

Shortwave field recording with Tecsun PL-310ET, Behringer UCA202 and eeePC 1005Ha running OpenBSD 6.4! Not exactly an ultralight rig, but portable enough: this plus a Spotmatic SLR fit easily in a surplus Finnish army shoulder bag, whose waist strap makes it pretty practicle to cycle with.

Pity I forgot my headphones. 🙄

Lifted from @tomasino

On your own feed, list 7 bands/artists that you’ve seen in concert, with one of them being a lie.
People can then post which one they think is the lie.

1. Psychedelic Furs
2. Shonen Knife
3. Cub
4. Echo & the Bunnymen
5. My Bloody Valentine
6. Lenny Kravitz
7. Harry Connick, Jr.

Bonus: guess which band/artist gave me a backstage pass after the show!

not sure if I shared the video of the UHF #pager transmitter in action, but here it is:

(the tests coincided with a tropo lift across Eastern England, I sometimes wonder if anyone with an #RTLSDR and #PDW is monitoring and even thinks they are getting DX from across the North Sea 😸 )

I feel like : the males are watching Game 7 of SCF, and I am working on math problems for funsies.

It feels good to delete social media accounts that I have had for years. All these years Ive been stuffin that 😀

Why do supermarket chains play dreadful pop music when they can have these glorious tracks to revive?

Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.

I cobbled together a guide of sorts for setting up your own free #Gopher hole on sdf.org

lynx gopher://sdf.org/1/users/spelk

or

gopher://sdf.org:70/users/spel

Look under the "Muse" section of my spelkhole, its in there.

It should outline the basics of getting a user account, setting up a gopher space and building your first gophermap.

Hopefully it will help people who are curious try out gophering, and some may support #SDF's public access #UNIX server going forward.
