food, improvised, surprisingly non-cursed 

I wanted pizza. I didn't have any of my usual ingredients, so I just threw together whatever.

Low-carb dough: 250g grated mild cheese, 250g finely grated broccoli (or cauliflower), 2 eggs. Mix, spread on baking paper. Bake 15 min 225°C.

Topping: tomato purée, sandwich salami, pizza ham, frozen mushrooms, blue cheese, red onion, frozen spinach, strong cheese.

Bake 15 minutes. Duck under the cloud of steam when opening the oven, from the frozen toppings.

By the way, gcmap.com/ is very good at figuring out routes over long distances.

I hope that battery-electric with smaller and cheaper aircraft requiring less infrastructure will allow for direct routes between smaller airports, getting rid of the hub-and-spoke nonsense for everything but intercontinental travel.

What's the shortest path for my Thinkpad to take from southern Sweden to Lenovo's service centre in Łódź, Poland? It's less than 800km as the crow flies across the Baltic Sea, but FedEx has sent it Stockholm-Copenhagen-Paris-Cologne-Warsaw-Łódź, for a total of just over 3200km.

Something is seriously wrong with the externalities if it can be economically advantageous to use a route that's four times as long as it needs to be.

I miss conventions. Even those kinda meh local anime cons at that crappy hotel.

I miss that vibe of just being around other nerds and looking at geeky stuff. Damnit I want this stupid pandemic to end already.

Signal is down, but federation no longer has a place in the modern world so that's just how it is. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Most people protest because they want something. Better jobs, healthcare, equal rights, etc.

The Capitol rioters are protesting/insurrecting to support someone who wants to TAKE AWAY such things.

Their cause is not valid in any way. They want to have the right to be an asshole.

Me: Neat software. How do I get it to do $THING, which is part of its core functionality?
Documentation: This software can do $THING. Look at this image saying it can do $THING! For more information, refer to GitHub issues, for example issue X.
Issue X, from 2017: I can't figure out how to do $THING from the documentation.
Answer in issue X, from 2017: To do $THING, do A, B, C, ...

So WHY have you not in the last THREE YEARS bothered to import that text to the DOCUMENTATION?

*sigh* Developers!

After I got my X395 back from warranty repair today, I got to enjoy it for a whole 30 minutes before finding a new problem, which they would have found had they bothered to run the built-in self test. And back to the workshop it goes. Maybe I'll pay for on-site support next time.

Good thing my 9 years old X220 is still in perfect working order as a temporary replacement. Everything important is in , so switching devices isn't a problem.

uspol, sarcasm, colonialist attitudes 

If you want to laugh to keep from crying, this Twitter thread from a Kenyan political commentator reporting on the US election in the style of western media reporting on Africa is quite funny: twitter.com/gathara/status/134

It's Miyazaki's 80th birthday and because he loves us and wants us to be happy, Ghibli just release almost 2,000 hi-res images from their films for reasonable use. So get on that.
