I like lambdas because they look pretty. That is all.

I love this picture on so many levels.

For starters, the amount of care that the artist made in getting the machines and other computing paraphernalia correct.

But also because it encapsulates the promise that computers had in the 1970s. The sheer optimism that computers could really change the world in a positive way.

I still think they can. I refuse to believe that we've corrupted computing beyond that optimistic phase.

Considering writing a primer on decentralization for people with low lech literacy. Any recs on what absolutely needs to be in there? Or even things that would be cool to have. Both specific examples and general info/advice/explanations.

Struggling to hold a thought or to speak eloquently 100% of the time -doesnโ€™t- mean you are unfit for a position of power. I would actually like to see more of my fellow m. ill people in appropriate positions where they can do good for themselves and their communities.
What I think DOES make you unfit is being willingly cruel and refusing to learn new, kinder ways of interacting with the world.
Allowing hatred to flavor your power/responsibility is unacceptable.

I also don't know how to make my yubikey neo do the things I want it to.

Do I have to set it up?

The first thing I want is it as a two factor for my keepass database.

The Android port of Alien Breed is rather excellent. Costs ~$3.00 but it's made me happy.

"Neofeud is a largely story-focused, puzzle-light, traditional point and click adventure, with a unique art style, plenty of dialogue, and a dystopian cyberpunk setting, which attempts to critique a range of social issues. I found it entertaining, impressively ambitious for a single developer (artist / musician / programmer / voice actor ... )" silverspook.itch.io/neofeud mastodon.social/media/wwaAcNPY

Nearly 6 years (!) after the Kickstarter, Stainless Games claim Carmageddon is still coming to Linux.

Liam from GamingOnLinux.com writes:

"It got to the point where I actually had to block one of their team on Twitter for repeatedly trolling our Twitter account with pathetic anti-Linux comments.

On top of that, they started jumping in on Tweets from us to other developers, to shit-post about Linux."

This is a really beautiful writeup. Ever wonder how real-life hacking works? This is it.

Website runs JS cryptocurrency miner to monetize site: "This is unethical!"

Admins hosting on DigitalOcean: they just basically doubled the amount of RAM and SSD on each instance, but you have to explicitly tell them to upgrade you (or downgrade to a cheaper plan with the same amounts).

I think I have to nuke the systemd service for elfeed/Emacs on my vps. Think it's blocking me working out why pinkcathodecat.drbbs.org:portnumber won't work on the elfeed app.

This is all because I'm too stubborn to syncthing as suggested byhttps://babbagefiles.blogspot.com.au/2017/03/take-elfeed-everywhere-mobile-rss.html?m=1in conjunction with nextcloud. I'm simply *not* using two programs that do very similar things.

@PinkCathodeCat Eh, embrace the danger zone ๐Ÿ˜‰

I should really stop hacking things on my goddamn phone.

Well, there goes my grand tumblr likes archiving scheme that isn't IFFTT -> Dropbox. github.com/foxmask/django-th/i

I might try the IFFTT makers channel with my nextcloud setup. But I really wanted to use an open source option.
