Mastodon isn't Twitter. It doesn't behave like Twitter. You will be disappointed if you have actually entirely lost the ability to communicate without being triggered by the outrage algorithm. Don't bring that culture here, it's why we left earlier.

The timeline is linear. Follow people you ordinarily wouldn't. Utilise the followers only message feature when you want to avoid a potential pile on. Report UX issues in a polite way and they'll probably be fixed, because this isn't Twitter.

use-after-free but instead of garbage data you always get goatse

If C and C++ weren't total garbage more people would be good programmers.

It is the fundamental duty of the citizen to resist and to restrain the violence of the state.

so zip is garbage like 1993 was, so I wrote a new zip in rust and it's pretty nice and seems to work proper. Your records can be any compression you want and you can mmap them easily in rust.


Wasp update: my hosts killed the two we knew about. Unfortunately one flew at my face as soon as I came back. So turns out there were three.

Wasps have come into the guest apartment I'm in at 1am and there's nothing available to get rid of them easily and every store is closed because I'm in suburban fucking Stockholm.

So I'm hiding outside with no plan.

Today in "Sweden is kinda fucked but in a uniquely Swedish way": Mayor calls on skilled non-EU workers to choose Stockholm despite deportation fears

In Sweden, if your employer fails to submit certain insurance forms within a specific period of time, your work permit CANNOT be renewed. You are punished for the mistakes of your employer. It's fucking insane.

So now one of the horrors I am talking about have suddenly entered my meandering rant thread: cryptocurrency stooges.

Can't even have a _fucking self-indulgent rant_ without some Bitcoin cunt appearing and saying something demented and cultish.

I had Bitcoin in 2011. I mined some to spite a friend and keep my bedroom warm because I had a graphics card but couldn't afford a heater at the time.

I guess I can thank the cult for pumping BTC so hard I paid capital gains taxes close to 100% lol

too disconnected to organise, too horrified to strategise, and now a whining internet wanker. :)

Anyway I suppose I'll just get an apartment, eventually get permanent residency, start my own co-op, beat capitalism at its own game, become a citizen of Sweden, and then hopefully I'll have some semblance of contentment. Being this discontented for so long is draining.

And to know I am so privileged only adds to the rub of this absolute whining thread, I barely have a reason to complain relative to most people i know, and that weighs on me massively.
