cant even escape the stupid culture war complaining in the latest billy gibson novel. ugh.

I've finally decided that Twitter's censorship has gone too far, and I'm deleting my account on Halloween. Wish me luck.

(They used to just censor what you're allowed to post, but now they're censoring search results too, deciding for you what you're allowed to read. Fuck that.)

linux OSes should not let you install packages via the command line; you should be required to add them to a syntax-checked file and then run a command to ensure system installed packages match the file.

yo @ddevault i think that stupid commons clause non-oss license that n8n uses (that prohibits selling of the "Software") doesn't cover derivative works, so you could edit one file and then run it as a SaaS. i'm not a lawyer but that's how it reads as english. ps fuck that fake open source guy

Speaking at an Aug. 25 news conference in Pittsburgh, they said they had found the names of an additional 10,000 state prison inmates on Pennsylvania’s unemployment rolls. But they said they were still investigating whether those people were aware that jobless claims had been filed on their behalf.

This seems like the kind of thing where you'd work to build a system resistant to this kind of fraud instead of diffing spreadsheets after the fact.

Anyone have any experience with this pleroma alternative? Just wondering people's experiences with it. I'm looking to change software for my instance and don't want to eat up 3/4 of my server resources to run masto. Also, are the dev(s) racist shitheels?

What surveillance equipment is law enforcement using in your area? EFF and @RSJNevada are mapping police technology in use all over the United States atlasofsurveillance.org/

is hearing full auto fire, which is legal, grounds for RS to investigate/terry stop?

why is it so hard to buy standard size poster frames with actual glass glazing and not acrylic/plexi?!

apple does this thing where they give you the phone you almost want, then a year or two later they give you the phone that’s like the phone from 5 years ago that you LOVED. rumor is that the iphone 12 will have the 4/5/6 flat edges again! remember when they came out with the “fuckoff black” iphone7? that was great

signal desktop on macOS should really have an option to launch on startup, have no app icon in dock, and simply be a menubar item.

the new yorker's double vowel umlaut thing (accurately called a diaeresis and not an umlaut) is perhaps the best specimen of an affectation ("artificial and designed to impress") that i can possibly think of.

Why don't all USB keyboards have a 2 port hub in them like the Das Keyboard and Apple USB keyboards?!

make sure you still give money to the ACLU despite their willful apathy toward 2A, they do important shit:

power supplies should connect to the main board with a data pin as well and report voltage, current draw, frequency, and internal temperature so it can be exposed via i2c like everything else on the board. i shouldn’t need to buy a kill-a-watt to see this data.
