We’re rarely “gruntled,” “sheveled,” or “in whack,” but we are often “disgruntled,” “disheveled,” and “out of whack.” ow.ly/XfuG30kFVCG

Dump of the original Furby's assembly source code, dated June 1998: seanriddle.com/furbysource.pdf
Coolest thing I can think of to do with this would be to get it running in a virtual machine in some existing virtual space, eg an MMO, VR chat room, No Man's Sky etc. I love the idea of this thing's freaky digital soul living on in unrecognizably alien worlds.

A man is at a friend's funeral. After the proceedings, he approaches the widow and asks if she minds if he says a word. "No, of course not," she replies. So he grabs a glass and taps a spoon against it to get everyone's attention, and when the muttering dies down, he clears his throat and speaks: "Plethora." He puts the glass back down and everyone continues their conversations. The widow turns to him, with a tear in her eye. "Thank you," she says. Show more

There's these studies about how once you commit to an opinion in front of someone you're less willing to back down from it even in the face of new insights; and online in 2018 has this culture where people rush to comment on everything that happens as fast as possible, you know?

Finding new people to follow is hard for newbies on any platform. I'm hoping that #Trunk can help. What I need is people volunteering to be on lists so newbies can follow a bunch of people right away. Please reply to this post if you agree to be on a list. Feel free to suggest new lists that I haven't thought of. (Living in my own filter bubble, I know!) Please boost!
communitywiki.org/trunk
Also looking for more lists. 😃

Another run bites the dust. 6.6k, 40m - better, but I don't think I'm ever getting those extra 3 minutes off my time... I guess the combination of injury and age wins this round.

Regarding Apt, 'There is little point "securely" transfering a compromised package.'

"A switch to HTTPS would also mean you could not take advantage of local proxy servers for speeding up access and would additionally prohibit many kinds of peer-to-peer mirroring where files are stored on servers not controlled directly by your distribution. This would disproportionately affect users in remote locales."
