Worst cable design ever. These things die after a couple of months. I have USBC cables that are still in fine working order after several years of use.

USPol Parler AWS rude language 

<< The mail concludes by saying AWS will preserve Parler's data and "work with you as best as we can to help" to arrange a migration. >>

Why don't you fuck right off, AWS?

I mean, seriously? Allowing those violent fascists to "arrange a migration"? F-U-C-K-Y-O-U-A-W-S.

One of the best things about Linux-based hobby projects is that I look busy when I'm goofing off.

"What are you working on?"

"I'm setting up a private CA so I can authenticate the cert for the Web front-end for the znc service."

"Sounds good. Carry on."

this kind of floored me. none of this would have been imaginable twenty years ago. we are in a strange moment in history and the future is unwritten.

there is ample reason to despair. the reasons for despair are ubiquitous, inescapable, on every screen 24/7.

the reasons for hope are hidden away in library conference rooms, in church basements. you have to go looking for them. but they are there, trust me, and there's more of them than you'd think.

Have just been informed by my 4 year old that baby whales like spaghetti a lot

Perhaps I should look for a new job, but I can't think how that would work.

"So you're middle-aged -- not that we practice age discrimination, of course. And we see from your resume that you're a college dropout and you've accomplished absolutely nothing. So why do you want to leave your current job?"

"I'm incompetent, and want to find another job before they notice and fire me."

the facts are thuis:

* batman is a billionaire industrialist for the military industrial complex a.k.a. literally the worst kind of person imaginable

* wayne enterprises is the primary employer of gotham city, implying that its basically some fucked up Amazon/Bezos bullshit where the entire city bends over backwards to hand it tax credits while they underpay workers and keep them barely at poverty level

* despite making billions from defense contracts to bomb brown people worldwide, Wayne Enterprises ~somehow~ doesn't pay enough taxes to Gotham City to fund, say, mental health services. how curious

* so after creating widespread poverty and starving city services to enrich himself, batman spends his spare time beating up people who are failed by the system that he feasts from
