Oh you’re a sysadmin? Name every site you’ve irreversibly destroyed.

#Horsetail falls in #Yosemite Park when the setting sun illuminates it. This only happens mid to late February.

Hey there. I am looking for a short job or some kind of internship (would rather a paid one but meh). I'm finishing my Bachelor (French Licence) this year and I'd like to work a bit somewhere between june and august.
I dont really have a prefered subject nor a speciality since my bachelor is really general. I will continue next year in a Master in HPC but I wouldn't mind doing something else before that.
Ofc It would be full remote since I live in France.
I speak english good enough so that It wont get in the way (I got 8/9 on average at a recent IELTS test).

It really is a bottle in the sea but who knows, I want to be amazed by some Internet magic.

Sold an extra AMD CPU cooler I had laying around for $20 today. It was one of the nicer ones that has RGB. I hope the kid I sold it to gets better use out of it than the back of my closet was

My Ryzen 5900x booting up, seeing an AMD R7 250x as the only graphics card in the system:

"Am I a joke to you?"

Why can't I figure out how to add someone by @ in the mast app for iOS

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

"software so evil it probably has a body count" is such a great qualifier
New Starbucks lid review

In their effort to go strawless, Starbucks has replaced the cross cut hole punch lids with sippy cup lids, with one edge raised with an oval hole. They are bad lids and Starbucks should feel bad for using them.

The purpose of a lid is to keep the liquid in the cup. The previous lid was fairly effective at this. The new lid is not. Once the cup is tilted, liquid streams out the open hole. And it doesn't take much of a tilt. Even just a quick turn to create a small slosh, such as you might make retrieving your beverage, will result in liquid spraying out the top. From a functional standpoint, these lids are an abject failure.

As for usability, the hole is slightly smaller but similar in shape to the ice chiclets used in iced drinks. Halfway through your first sip the hole will be blocked by an ice cube. Another failure.

If your drink requires mixing, there's a good chance you will now be stuck with a two layer suspension, and no decent way to homogenize things without making a mess. Unless you always ask for a straw anyway, like I do. Then I can also enjoy my tasty beverage without holding the entire cup up in front of my face, blocking my vision. Straws for the win.

As consumers, we have rights too, and it's time to stand up to Big Turtle.
