Oracle is going to stop releasing its JDK / JRE except to paying customers. This isn't a death knell to Java, but it suggests Oracle is trying to monetize what it can. I'd be slightly more reluctant to start new projects in Java in the near future.
Mi ŝanĝis mian repoŝtilon el gmail-retpaĝo al Evolution, kaj nun mi sentas, ke mi taŭge regadas mian retpoŝtaron. Baldaŭ mi devus movi al ProtonMail aŭ alia traktilo.
Fanfic where the author typed "filched" instead of "flinched" and now I'm imagining Superman compulsively stealing whenever someone mentions Superboy.

drugs, stigma, racism, cops Show more
you're allowed to not like drugs and be made uncomfortable by them, you're allowed to complain of people disrespectful of personal spaces
just don't stigmatize and shame drug users & if you support the way govts and cops handle the situation with drugs and treat those who use them, especially people of color, you're either uninformed or an asshole
The paradox of productivity in 2018 is even if you're writing a quantum tech article whilst simultaneously dogwalking, podcasting your fourth Ph. D, & inventing the next revolutionary drudge-work-automating app (that will be consumed by a tech giant), you'll always be making not-enough per hour for a dignified existence.
No amount of neurohack pills, 180-hour crunches and AI assistants will ever free us, because neofeudal capitalism will consume all abundance.
The wheel must break.
This weeks 306 robot's eye view video is back in Paris, on the Bir Hakeim bridge. It is a very popular place for fashion photographers. We passed 3 different professional photographers on the bridge and a few people just taking pictures.
I post new 360 videos every Wednesday (last wednesday didn't exist, sorry)
If you want to support more 360 tourism or the other stuff I do I have a patreon: https://www.patreon.com/OokTech

my only real issue w/ mastodon is like. hardly an issue at all but there's so many more people who get inappropriately casual with literal strangers on here. like if i don't even know your name, we're not mutuals or anything, then don't be "jokingly" rude to me? i don't know you!
like i've dealt w/ this stuff elsewhere on the internet but not nearly as much as i do on here. i think it's because masto feels so small and intimate. a good thing usually but some ppl don't know to not be mean i guess
"Chrome has outgrown its competition in a way that’s unhealthy. My colleague Tom Warren already detailed the deleterious effects of Chrome’s outsize influence, with web developers optimizing and coding specifically for Chrome (and Google encouraging the practice), with unhappy connotations of the crummy old days when Internet Explorer was the dominant browser for the web."
Chrome's basically spyware. Get rid of it ASAP.
Spouse: "Let's see, today was the 16th..."
Me: "The list is long. Dirac Angestun Gesept."
I heard it long ago that chickens look good under ultraviolet light. While this is vacuously true (chickens are cute in all lighting conditions), I have yet to find a photo of a chicken under ultraviolet light, and it's bothering me.
Maybe I should get a few chickens to correct this error.
This makes me angry:
I run my own mail server in a VPS. Its IP address is NOT blacklisted, and I have both SPF and DKIM properly configured. I do NOT send bulk mail.
But still, Gmail classifies my personal emails as SPAM.
Same email with same exactly same contents, sent through PoBox SMTP server goes to INBOX. Directly from VPS, goes to SPAM. No explanations, no public blacklist. It looks like they just don't want people going "indie". Sigh.
We ſhould bring back long S. It adds a bit of claſs to normal ſpeech.
Immediately on waking, I asked my spouse: "Do you have a favorite regular 2d polygon?"
She does not.
