The facility where my servers are colocated is without power. Waiting on a status report from them now.

My wife invited a bunch of her bicycling friends over to watch a documentary about people who like bicycles.

I want to be supportive but everyone in this film is a bougie-ass Marin County parasite who retired in their 20s to focus on telling working-class people how to live their lives. This "why would you not simply buy more money" noise gets under my nerves. Try that shit when your only income-generating characteristic is "owns a pickup truck."

Bikes are cool though I'm not mad at bikes

the fact that Ubuntu Touch works fine on the bq M10 FHD (circa 2016) and is a stuttering crashy mess on the Pinephone tells me that Plasma's slowness on the Pinephone is probably not Plasma's fault, to be fair.

pinephone/postmarketos update: phosh is almost useable. plasma is too slow. telephony features are still broken.

A fun hobby is reading anything on the Internet about the Remarkable 2, then reading all the comments full of people spitting with rage that they can't e.g. watch Youtube on a thing sold explicitly as a note-taking device.

It doesn't have a backlight, or speakers, or a keyboard, or a web browser, and people are fucking furious, despite those exact absences being the major marketing topic for the device.

Dear Mastodon,

How the hell do I follow someone if their web UI doesn't have Mastodon's user-redirector crap?

I just want to paste a damn username into a text field and press 'follow.' How?

At long last, I've got the 1x11 drivetrain working on the Disc Trucker. Just waiting on that Swedish reuseable bartape to come in, and I think I can call the bike done...

I'm sick and tired of Steve Klabnik "hinting" at other people's horrific behavior he's just too demure and wholesome to discuss.

He is one of a handful of Extremely Online People in the software world who seem to have a hobby of shit-talking strangers without bringing receipts.

Here's an example of this hobby, where in this case the subject is (among other people) me:

Early-boot serial output from my MNT Reform laptop:

Any u-boot experts around who can suggest where I start learning what the hell u-boot is?

seeing they made another matrix movie caused me to reminisce about being in the theater in 1999, pissing off all my friends because I couldn't stop laughing at Ted "Theodore" Logan III kung-fu fighting Cowboy Curtis

This article: webmd.com/vaccines/covid-19-va

and this article:
dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9

Are both based on a preprint paper, which has been updated since, and the update directly invalidates the claim in the news articles:
medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/20

What do you think the chances are of these outlets updating their reporting?
