Three conspiracy theorists walk into a bar.

You can't tell me that's just coincidence.

Instagram: My life is a party.

Snapchat: My life is a quirky TV show.

Facebook: My life turned out great!

Twitter: We're all going to die.

Mastodon: Don't worry, while we are on a quirky, meandering path towards an inevitable apocalypse, we might as well enjoy the ride and show eachother some love in an unorthodox, yet irresistible manner, not in any way hindered by considerations of style, identity or consistency.

@witchfynder_finder @tipsytentacle I can do better.

"The moon landing was faked!"

"On which moon?"

"Wait, huh?"

"Like, I _know_ we faked the landing on Moon Sigma, and since that's the Moon most people think of as 'the Moon', it's _sort_ of a big deal but not really? Because we landed on Moon Zeta back in 1969. And Moon Upsilon, sheesh, the Russians got there while JFK was still alive. That's why the Cuban Missile Crisis happened."

@DrOps for anyone smugly leaning back, saying to themselves "Ha! I make regular backups!"

I ask, when did you last recover any data from them?

Maybe that is a good once-a-year goal too.

People who know me from birdsite will know my traditional reminder:

It is Friday 13th, so it is the best day for starting to have a backup routine.

If you only do a backup on every Friday 13th it will save at least half of your ass.

If you suspect your IoT device to be insecure, just copy any random Java update to it. Most likely it won't help anything, but hey, Oracle runs a complete business model based on that.

They say every Jedi builds their own lightsaber

So do Jedi have a shed full of old amateur lightsaber builds that cause RSI problems or intermittently sputter and die?

And is every Jedi perennially unhappy with some feature of their lightsaber, distracted from fighting Sith by ideas for how to improve the design, as soon as they save enough to order more parts?

Wait do Jedis do group-buys of lightsaber kits to take advantage of volume discounts? That shit must be expensive in small quantities

Quick note for new Mastodonians:

If you try to follow someone and get an hourglass, it means they have to approve your follows.

It is not a reflection on you if this doesn't happen immediately. Notifications about this aren't in the same window as the usual "someone followed you" default notifications.

It's not like Twitter's thing. It's Masto's own thing, and some of us are a bit more security-conscious than others, and some of us are slow to review our follow requests.

Emacs' org-mode is perfect for exploring and documenting any huge unknown code base. Class dependencies, menu trees, call chains, etc.

one time I made a script that searched lshw for the string "Hitachi" and if it found it then it said "parts of your computer were made by a sex toy manufacturer"

I used to blog via a static site generator, which works really pretty, but needs a lot of ruby on my computer and on the server.

As i write the posts in org-mode anyway, i will give org-page a try.

That way my generates the site itself without an external tool.

Die Entwicklung, dass fremde Unternehmen mehr über uns wissen, als wir selbst finde ich ziemlich googelig.
