All these years I didn't know that you can shorten to 127.1
All of those wasted zeros. I'm so ashamed.

Lol I just remembered this WSJ graphic meant to illustrate how tax hikes would hurt real Americans like these completely realistic people

Even if you're all fucked up you can still have a life.

So far I'm liking just about everything Biden is doing. It's nice having a sane president for a change.

Today in 1964 BASIC made its debut, in an effort to take programming out of the world of machine language.

Share if you're old enough to have gotten your start with it.

I think the ACLU will be all over that one.

At this point, the US intelligence community and the Department of Homeland Security have proven themselves completely incompetent at cybersecurity for the USA. the responsibility needs to be shifted entirely over to the Department of Defense under control of the Pentagon where it always belonged in the first place. That would also free up the IC and DHS to concentrate on their real priorities.

"Cryptocurrency is one of the worst inventions of the 21st century. [...] It has failed to be a useful currency, invented a new class of internet abuse, further enriched the rich, wasted staggering amounts of electricity, hastened climate change, ruined hundreds of otherwise promising projects, provided a climate for hundreds of scams to flourish, created shortages and price hikes for consumer hardware, and injected perverse incentives into technology everywhere. Fuck cryptocurrency."

I help run an online community for people with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and other mobility issues. It’s a super old community (since 2001), ad-free and non-commercial. Full of thousands of real people who try to help each other cope. If you know someone with an SCI or coping with mice in a wheelchair, introduce them to CareCure. It’s a great little community.

Today I invented fried bouillon biscuits. Flour, milk powder, sugar, salt, bouillon powder, black pepper, baking powder, canola oil, water. Four or five minutes per side. Had no clue if it would turn out, but it was delish.

I am a Linux kernel contributor and a security researcher.

Will the Linux Kernel team ban me if I too attempt to test the ability of the code review process to catch malicious commits?

Good luck figuring out which pseudonyms are mine.

Did you ever write a song you liked so much that you played it over and over again for hours until you were so sick of it you never wanted to hear it again as long as you live? -_-
