Cis people: "You’re 15 now it’s time you choose your path at school which will eventually impact your future diploma, your future work and all your life."

Trans people: "I might be a girl …"

Cis people: "NO! You’re way too young to know !!!"

my favorite evidence of the existence of god is the fact that richard dawkins invented a word that meant “idea, as an entity subject to selective pressure” and now everyone knows it and uses it to mean “picture with words on it”

What if instead of neural coprocessors people just, embedded FPGAs in their devices 🤔

floating point numbers are overrated.

I honestly can't think of a situation where floats are definitively the best option.

Found a wording:

"<script> is a reserved tagname for use by WHATWG. Authors must not rely upon useragent support, though authors' use is allowed in HTMLite to overcome other shortcomings in supporting useragents."

I've already given "supporting useragents" a context-dependant definition to aid me in making this spec as lenient as I want...

Workers: I don't want to work for low wages during a pandemic for shitty bosses with poor leadership skills to serve overly entitled customers who won't even do me the courtesy of wearing a fucking mask

Bosses: We don't want to pay our workers more or hire new people because our business model is based around skeleton crews full of minimum wage workers in order to be viable

Dozens of articles every day: What's behind the worker shortage? Is the social safety net too generous?

A proposal, dear reader: Create a list of bookmarks linking to websites you find interesting, and publish it for the world to see. It's a bit strange, almost nobody seems to be doing this. Looking through a sample of personal websites, very few of them has links to other personal websites. A hyperlink isn't a marriage proposal. It is enough to find some redeeming quality in a website to link to it.

Reading about #ObjectCapabilites or Ocaps as an alternative to ACLs in the context of moderation on the decentralised web: "OcapsPub: towards networks of consent" gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/-/. It's interesting how much good thinking is coming out of the #ActivityPub centred Fediverse.

regulating privacy? fine, that's about what you send to other people, often over state lines

regulating CSAM? fine, that's about what you make available online

but you cannot tell people they are only allowed to view the bits you send them in a certain way. you cannot. fuck you.

Happy World Standards Day, a day where the entire world celebrates international standardization... well, the entire world except the US, which celebrates this on October 22nd 😂

PC adventure game Dark Seed requires VGA, but what it actually does is run in the 640x350 EGA mode (10h), and then use VGA's capabilities to set the 16 colors beyond the default 64 color palette of that mode.
So here it is in EGA, without the custom VGA palette. #DOSGaming

>The year is 2022.
>I begin my driveby on those piece of shit gangers. My car has the words "HORSE" spraypainted on every side. I pull up to their hide out, and retrieve my firearm, covered in sticky notes saying "SANDWICH", "PLASTIC BAG", "LEGO TOY" attached to it like Japanese wards trying to keep a demon out. I blast him in the face, and leave stick a note directly over the gunshot wound with the words "ALIVE PERSON". The police drones have no idea how a horse went 130 miles an hour.
