At the end of this path is the Brooklyn Promenade, a pedestrian space with stunning views of downtown Manhattan. The city wants to remove the promenade and put the BQE in its place. Why not just ditch the BQE?? Routing highways through residential areas is backwards.
Meanwhile, here's the city of Amsterdam tweeting about their plan to eliminate 7k-10k parking spaces in favor of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure. ❤️https://twitter.com/AmsterdamNL/status/1083684741398884352

"Nancy Pelosi uninvites Trump from the State of the Union until the shutdown is over.
She also says he can deliver it in writing if he wants."
Ow that gotta hurt! Technically the US President has to be *invited* to the State of the Union, IIRC.
If you want to use a yubikey for ssh'ing and for pushing to GitHub, I wrote a guide for getting that to work (after spending a lot of time cursing at gpg tools) https://github.com/hollyhudson/howto_guides/blob/master/yubikey_ssh.md
Success! If you want to make your own SPI flash programming fixture for the TOMU FOMU v0.0 FPGA board: https://github.com/osresearch/fomu-hardware/blob/master/hacker/fomu-jig.svg
The year is 2019 and I can’t buy a good majority of consumer technology because we lack privacy legislation and consumer protections. Example: it’s absurd that my TV came with spyware that can’t be turned off or avoided; I had to stop it from phoning home at the network level. It also came with an arbitration clause and a clause waiving the right to a class action lawsuit.
I did a post about my recent visit to @revspace in Den Haag https://www.nycresistor.com/2019/01/12/hackerspace-envy-a-visit-to-revspace-in-the-hague/
blocking ads is evil grr
HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.
Downloading all my Kindle ebooks and turning them into .epub files, on macOS: https://www.sonyaellenmann.com/2018/09/back-up-kindle-files-mac.html
It took several hours (including wait times) and I'm still not 100% done. Hopefully, like, 95% done.
Haha love your tagline, @billiegrace , and your photo is awesome :)

I'm back in the US now 😕 where the FDA is stopping food inspections. So I guess no salads or fresh fruit for a while? But I should be grateful I'm not one of the 800k workers who are aren't getting paid. All because republicans, who could do something about it, are totes cool with American lives and livelihoods being held hostage to a petty manbaby's racist temper tantrum.
Of course I know why. I get it. If they can destroy the government their oligarch donors can rule unhindered. 😞
