@emsenn What a good kitty!
@Elizafox Until a better alternative to driving everywhere is available, I don't want your steering wheel.
Right now I just want to shit on Lee Iacocca's grave.
No, I hate cars. I /also/ hate bad drivers, the improper substitution of public transit with private transportation, and shitty zoning policies.
@brynet I just set up a $5 monthly donation.
OpenBSD, wifi, athn, AR5418
I finally got around to emailing misc@ about my ThinkPad T60 wifi woes (constant "device timeout" errors), and @stsp was kind enough to reply this morning.
It turns out I needed to explicitly set my athn0 device for 802.11g mode, which I did in /etc/hostname.athn0 as follows:
!ifconfig athn0 mode 11g

Hopefully this helps others facing similar issues.
Nice! The combined total of smaller donations from the #OpenBSD community reached Platinum! The first Platinum this year. I think the support from individuals is almost unrivalled anywhere else, and that's just awesome to see.
My novel BOOKS & BONE is currently 50% off on Smashwords for the whole of July, so you can get it for <$2!
It would be really cool if you had a look. ^_^

@emsenn I don't have much use for religion, but as long as people don't try to legislate it I don't have a problem with it.
stop shitting on the midwest.
before people started ignoring them in favor of throwing them to the republicans, they had unions, they were socialist.
the Farmer's Party? The Factory Unions?
Stop treating them as lost causes. they're only the way they are because we decided they were useless.
@mkb I'm a strong believer in fighting fire with fire.
When a right-winger calls me a faggot, I tell them, "I know you're frustrated because you're stuck in the closet, honey, but that's no way to flirt."
Many alt-reich kiddies are still at the stage where they think they can get away with projecting their insecurities and inadequacies onto others.
@mkb Right-wingers don't understand the Bible or Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations, either. That doesn't stop them from venerating these documents (or the Constitution) as holy writ.
In addition to being goose-stepping snowflakes they're modern-day Know-Nothings. They mistake their willful ignorance for virtue and parade it about, yet dare upbraid the likes of us for "virtue signalling".
