The Tao of Linux:
You can have no issues from hardware that has no driver (@awilfox)
Games do not crash if you can not play them
If screen tearing occurs, delete xorg.conf and remove the xorg server packages, and then you will have no screen tearing.
The software that has no bugs is the software you cannot obtain for your platform
Bugs are only shallow if the puddle is widespread
If you have the source, but cannot comprehend it all, can you ever truly debug it?

"...It may not have been a good PR move for the airline. They probably could have avoided it all by gratuitously offering more money to get the trespasser to leave. But none of these points turns the thing into a violation of capitalist ethics. It wasn’t." http://mattbruenig.com/2017/04/11/come-see-the-violence-inherent-in-the-system/
families being horrible to their gay kids Show more
My driver this evening was a gay man who moved here in the 80's. Originally from Texas, his father kicked him out of the house when he was 14. His mother stood by and wrung her hands while he picked up his clothes that his father had thrown out of the house onto the ground. He had some money saved up and went to Denver, then Los Angeles, and ultimately decided that San Francisco was home.

"We deeply regret that we fucked up bad, doubled down, and are now being called on our bullshit. We have no idea what we're doing and are working with a sense of urgency to pull our heads out of our asses."

Web developer currently doing an internship in automated testing for iOS. Interests include politics (I will always try to include a CW), lgbtqi issues, making Chrome extensions, and generally being silly. Avid reader of fantasy and science fiction, consumer of tower defense games. Married to an evil genius.
My two primary usecases for social media:
1) Howling into the void, but with less danger that I will receive an answer
2) Being a crazy old man ranting on a street corner and mumbling to myself while walking down the road, by turns, except without inconveniencing or frightening anyone else, and without having to leave the comfort of my home.
@ChuckyX @Abbynormative Heard of VSCO? It's Instagram for hipsters who got sick of Instagram. They don't show followers/faves—looking at someone's work, you don't know how popular they are or how likes it got.
I like this—it dissuades engagement-whoring, and you can post stuff you care about, without looking like a loser because only four people liked it.
Also encourages discussion: you're not going to see someone has 700 followers and think, oh they're too royalty to talk to.
