What's the point of veggie burgers like Beyond Burgers, which simulate bloody beef using beet juice, if you don't order them cooked rare?

Hey everyone, I'm looking for Wordpress savvy folks to help me fix my webcomic theme (Inkblot, no longer updates) or make a new one work with the Webcomic plugin. (I started and got to 80% there without coding)
I'm considering other CMS too if it's less work and all the things like comments can be preserved.

hmu and let me know your rates!

gonna see if some nice Cleveland baseball season tickets are on sale

I want to be like the Diogenes of tech, a Cynic living a simple technological life, rejecting trends, sleeping in a big pot and yelling at people that talk about the blockchain.

when people use the analogy that bitcoin is like idling your car to solve equations, it wasn't a suggestion

"Autonomous vehicles use the equivalent of 200 laptops to get around. Some want to tap that computing power to decode viruses or mine bitcoin"

just close your browser and lose all those open tabs

"ok NOW I can start playing"

GOG is having a sale that includes the game Beyond Good and Evil, one of my favorite games and I suggest you grab it for $2.49.

I remember grabbing it from the bargain bin because those are the games I could afford, to play on the PC I cobbled together.

I guess this is the modern equivalent of the bargain bin now since it's all streaming.

A billionaire buying himself a space plane is not a triumph but proof of how billionaires are toxic policy failures.

It's no different than them buying another super yacht. #tw

when a billionaire goes to space you can legally just take anything they own on Earth

It's the Griz!

The build of the Raspberry Pi cyberdeck/laptop is complete (for the most part, with plenty of hacks).

Writeup forthcoming.

I think I've never been more forcibly struck than today with the realisation that today's Web developers have never used 1980s BASIC systems and just have no awareness that computers used to be things you could both use and program interactively, in the same session.

We've deprived an entire couple generations of children of a basic formative mind-expanding experience of cognitive freedom, and now they're making tools that restrict other people's thought lives and see nothing wrong with that.
