just a note to the programmers on here: if your work involves ai, neural networks, or other expensive algorithms designed to replace human judgement, consider how much it's truly meant to be more equitable and/or efficient and whether it meets that goal. if it doesn't and you're just automating existing judgement at great expense, the purpose of including a neural network is to obfuscate culpability

this is not theoretical

I'd rather set up a rpi to play around with RiscOS, but I get your point.

It's currently cooling down in the fridge.

In other news, I need a new Linux-supported wifi USB nub. Surprise!


There are still a few countries where I believe FLOSS and encryption wil lremain free for all. Germany is one of them.

But the cypherpunk saying rings truer and more prescient by the day:

"When privacy and encryption are outlawed, only outlaws will have privacy and encryption".

I would dearly love to have a good quality copy of Slash and Linda Perry cover of "Whole Lotta Love".

I mean: Steve Stevens, Slash, Stradlin, Linda Perry... What's not to like?


I like the fact that a community-driven, old school, KISS principle Linux Distro like Slackware is more stable and way more useful than many of the newest ones.

At least, that's my experience. Feel free to disagree.


One can dream, right?

I mean, as far as as teenagers go, mine are pretty well balanced.

Which means we only get in a screaming match only once a week.

I don't mind having a couple of teenagers at home.

What I do mind is the drama that comes with having a couple of teenagers at home.

Hopefully, this will stop in a couple of years, once they both get into their twenties.
