If you're not using your intelligence and skills to help people and make their lives easier, its just masturbation.

An while I'm feeling jittery and irrational thanks to two cups of coffee and a bag of gummy worms for breakfast: How many Dungeons and Dragons actual play podcasts does your service need to offer, Spotify? Can anyone listen to all of those in a week? If they do listen to every new episode in a week do you contact mental health services for them? If not, why not? They are clearly depressed and a danger to themselves.

The thought occurred to me to do reviews of random bands that Spotify serves up to me in the various playlists it creates throughout the week.

At the very least it could serve as a master list of all the uninspired stoner metal bands in the world today.

Seriously, Spotify. I like Lo Pan and High on Fire. That doesn't mean I want 20+ bands in my discover weekly singing about Dungeons and Dragons.

Just how many hacker news bots do I need to block?

So, when I decided to switch from CentOS to make my life a bit easier on my server, I had the choice of either Ubuntu Server or Debian.

I ran Ubuntu Server for the last couple of years with no issues.

That server started dying last weekend and I installed Debian just for curiosity sake.

I think that I made the wrong choice a couple of years ago.

Browsing the Internet with #noscript on is such a pleasant experience. Especially on news sites.

I am old enough (thought don't look or act like it) and well-read enough that the old radical feminist literature from the 1970s and 80s saw the vision of feminism as the total abolition of gender, and androgyny for all.

Real radfems, then, should be celebrating and supporting non-binary people, not demonizing them.

But now what passes for "radical" feminism is the opposite: reinforcing sexist ideas of "womanliness," myths of "cultural feminism," and the old tired biological essentialism.

Not so long ago, I used to have some shred of empathy toward TERFs as I saw their (albeit misguided and ignorant) concerns had valid points.

I used to be a useful idiot for years.

Then I found out the extent of how they are in bed with the far-right extremists who are neither feminist nor pro-LGBTQ+ and even receiving money from organizations such as ADF and Heritage.

These "feminists" need to know that once they achieve the end of trans, they will be the next target.

i'm not even saying "ugh security is hard" i'm saying the attack surface for ssh has been understood for Quite Awhile and we should have decent defaults to make it SAFE to use. Which means:

1. Deny root login
2. Deny password authentication
3. Require public-key authentication
4. Close off any deprecated key exchange methods
5. Auto-ban brute force attempts

That's like. A minimum best effort. Really.

Really.

I've fallen for a big, dumb, and ruinously expensive miniatures game. Send help.

At least only two Nazis tried to turn my choice of social networking platforms into a justification for antisemitism. Two too many, but I was expecting more. Assholes.
