Finally got around to setting up my own PeerTube instance. Got a couple of videos uploaded. Just some Overwatch POTGs, so far.

It used to be, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Now it's," Doctors *hate* this fruit - click to find out why"

The bosses never want the employees to talk money. That's because they play favorites.

Talk money with your peers. Be open and honest.

The money taboo is a tool of the oligarchy.

in 2002 you would buy the highest end servers and link them with fancy cables so they could pretend to be one really, really powerful server with hundreds of processors

in 2020 you buy the highest end servers and install software so they can pretend to be hundreds of servers with one processor

So often I see folks posting about problems "with OpenBSD" where they don't specify a version.

When we ask for information, we're not trying to be pedantic, gatekeeping jerks, we *need* the information. Most of us run -current. Knowing (at a *minimum*) which version you are running can help us. We'll also sometimes ask you to try -current because we think your problem was solved by a change since the last release. We can't be sure until you try though.

Friendly reminder: "X as a service" is just a misleading corporate euphemism for "pay forever for not owning it".

"Software as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the software".

"Games as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning games".

"Infrastructure as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the hardware".

And so on.

There is no "cloud", it's just other people's computers

I had brief thinking powers, but most of today has been like trying to think through mud.

All this is hitting the rest of my mood. I'm sleeping all the time and being barely functional. Things keep being overwhelming. I am really unhappy with the medical insurance folks for pulling this bullshit during such a stressful time.

RIGHT!!! Riot has turned on End-to-End Encryption by default for all private conversations, and Cross-Signing device verification has landed and is live (and 🤞 performant!) 🎉🎉🎉 Huge amounts of work went into this: matrix.org/blog/2020/05/06/cro has the overview.

These fuckers on birdsite are trying to get your taxes in the UK to pay for startups:

Save our startups? Fuck your startups!

Startups—VC-funded temporary businesses with the same success criteria as cancer (exponential growth)—ARE THE REASON we have surveillance capitalism.

#NotOnePenny of your taxes should go to them.

News headline: British Airways pilots get 50% pay cut, CEO gives up nothing.

Me: Of course not! They're a 1 percenter. They're completely fucked in the head. How is this news?
