...and so the infectious disease authorities funded a giant pink squid statue in the town, which brought assured prosperity, and they all lived happily ever after... wait, no, wat!?!

"A town in Japan spent Covid relief funds on a giant squid statue."

Android desktop, replacement for my computer?

So, this was definitely not the article I was planning on writing. In fact I should've written about the progress on my i3Qt set up back around Monday. Why haven't I?
Well, because progress has been small. Added a few programs, trying out Polybar as of last night, still have to set up the wallpaper changer, and fighting with a few odd problems with floating windows and workspace assignments. Really just not enough to write about yet.
Or I could be writing about the Raspeberry Pi 4 2G that I bought to replace my rather ancient Roku 2 first generation.... Except that I haven't done anything with it yet, despite more than a week passing. social.chatterboxtown.us/displ

757 days ago, the UK illegally arrested Political Prisoner #JulianAssange.

He is spending another night in prison away from his family and friends for his award-winning journalism. If the UK supported a free press, they would free him immediately. Free him NOW, UK!

If your employees keep quitting your business and you canโ€™t hire anyone to replace them, the problem isnโ€™t that people are lazy or donโ€™t appreciate the โ€œvirtuesโ€ of work, itโ€™s that youโ€™re a terrible manager who doesnโ€™t pay enough for the exploitation youโ€™re expecting.

f890 it: try to learn something about ANYthing, lol

I moved into a house that was built in 1958. The 1940s-era stove and oven are older than the house and still work great. We will never get rid of them as long as they are functional.

Don't tell me "planned obsolescence" isn't a thing.

The windows rattled, the walls groaned and the doors shook on their hinges as the beast stalked into the cozy kitchen, salivating, antlers grazing the ceiling and claws scratching at the shelves.
"I hunger," it howled at the sole occupant of the cottage.

The little old man shook his ladle sternly at the beast, "You're early! So you'll take a seat and you'll wait."

The beast sat impatiently at the neatly set table, sipping a red wine.
