do i need to play the other 39,999 warhammers first

I'm thinking of a new job in 2022. Are you hiring/know someone who is?

Looking for:

- Not evil or dumb. No weapons platforms or web3 nonsense.
- A programming language I like more. Clojure would be great, I'd be up to learn Rust, maybe something else?
- A place that lets engineers use Linux.
- Fully remote. I actually like going into an office, when it's safe. It isn't.

I'm located in Portland, OR, USA.

Over 25 years, WE built a golden brand by inspiring children to rally around their charismatic leader. But behind the scenes, employees experienced a cult-like culture and a troubling blur of charitable and commercial activities. In the aftermath of a national scandal, thousands of donors and volunteers (and dozens of ‘celebrity ambassadors’) are left wondering where the money went, and whether the savior industry creates a constant need for victims.

The Guardian Project's "Second Wind" F-Droid repository looks interesting. Android applications curated specifically for being useful offline in disaster situations.

Offline usability and impromptu sneakernet/mesh networking for when the grid fails is something I think US city-based technologists very often fail to imagine.

In New Zealand, it is very easy to drop out of data range, and data is very expensive, so we tend to notice this a lot more here.

Brave has identified a new category of tracking vulnerability, forms of which are present in all browsers. We call this category of attack “pool-party” attacks because the attack uses collections (or “pools”) of limited-but-shared resources to create side channels

The sworn enemy of your emancipation is the state: it is best embodied by the union of these five stereotypes: the property-owner, the soldier, the judge, the priest and the one who serves them all, the intellectual.

Hey, #fediverse! I'm doing some research on the uses of Federated software by non-governmental organizations. I'm curious to see if NGOs use federated tools (especially Mastodon, but any fedi tools) to organize outside of corporate systems (e.g., Google, FB).

If you have tips, please send them my way! DMs are fine, and I will not publish names outside this space without consent.

Boosts appreciatd.

The art we look at is made by only a select few. A small group create, promote, purchase, exhibit and decide the success of art. Only a few hundred people in the world have any real say. When you go to an art gallery you are simply a tourist looking at the trophy cabinet of a few millionaires.

C64 OS has one goal: make a Commodore 64 feel fast and useful in today’s modern world.

One was given to Monica, in his life
One was given to Erica, by his side
One was given to Sandra, in the sun
One was given to Mary, all night long
But they were all of them deceived. Deep in the fires of Mount Doom, the dark lord Lou Bega forged a master mambo, Mambo No. 5

Have not prisons -- which kill all will and force of character in man, which enclose within their walls more vices than are met with on any other spot of the globe -- always been universities of crime? Is not the court of a tribunal a school of ferocity?

Update: After all that Brew informs me my old version of OSX is no longer supported and anything that goes wrong because of that is on me.

Uh… OK. I still ain't upgrading boyz. This is the last version of OSX I use before I give up on it entirely and just use Linux. (Or get hardcore and use BSD.)

OSX and I had a good run. Too bad Apple had to go and ruin the relationship.

We were given notice to move out of our house on Christmas day, so we're saying fuck you to the landlord class and taking on the challenge of living on a boat.

We might not be as ready as we think we ought to, the boat is definitely not ready, nor is it the right boat (soon)
Doesn't matter, fuck neofeudalism.

Boundless gratitude to my copilot on this journey <3
