Please remember that “carbon footprint” is a bullshit concept devised by fossil fuel companies to shift responsibility for climate change away from companies and on to individuals

There are actually only three #videogames in the world: "Press the right button at the right time", "Watch numbers go up" and "This should have been a movie".

Web developers: take a moment to turn off javascript on your websites. If it can't be used at all--especially if the user is confronted with a blank screen--without js support, fix it. It's a bad website. #xp

Okay, I'm curious, when did you guys first hear about/join Linux? Please boost for a wider data pool. :boost_love:

Cookie popups: Twitter repost 

Once again; loud and slow for the people at the back:

COOKIE POPUPS DID NOT COME FROM THE GDPR.

Cookie popups came from the adtech industry’s disinclination to comply with ePrivacy law and make it so annoying to avoid surveillance advertising that people wouldn’t bother

Yeah, it can run BSD, Linux or whatever. But what are you going to do with it?
Turn it off, shove it in a corner and forget about it forever?
Computers were made to be used.
Be creative.

I am not sure what is more frustrating about anti-abortion fanatics. How hypocritical it is of the same group who couldn't be told to wear a mask when it affects everyone, now wants to tell someone to sacrifice their lives when it has no affect on them. Or how they are adamantly opposed to any sort of support after a child is born. This capture from Instagram perfect sums it up:

Appliance Pet Peeve 

Touch buttons instead of physical ones. They suck.

Ah jeez, it’s one of the worst days of the year 😑

I turn on my PC.

The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.

The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.

Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.

Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.

Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.

Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.

The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.

Humanity is not ready for instant messaging

“Conservative” is just a euphemism for misogynist, racist, and classist. If they could, they’d outlaw homosexuality and bring back slavery too.
