To fight Centralization:
- Own your data.
- Archive your data online and off.
- Use decentralized services like Mastodon and Matrix and whatever whenever possible.
- publish to places that aren't facebook or medium (and if you must, only use central services for syndication.)

To fight user hostility:
- Use ad blockers and privacy badger
- If you can get away with it, use no-script or similar when possible.
- Stop using, or reduce your use of, platforms that profit from treating you poorly.

get out of the internet! you're crossing borders that you are not allowed to pass.

...nationalists, the best running joke on the internet.

(no, they aren't funny. But making fun about them helps to take away their authority...at least a bit with every bit)

everyone is #gay except those who aren't gay at the moment.

everyone is #trans-sexual except those who aren't trans-sexual at the moment.

everyone is #queer, except those who aren't queer at the moment.

everyone is #gender fluid, except those who aren't gender fluid at the moment.

...

You are what you are.

And who you'll be in the future won't be defined by the past but by whom you are at that moment then.

pro love - pro selfdetermination - pro freedom - pro selfcare!

Machine learning shows the bias of the people creating it.

Which makes this another 'what else did you expect?' type headline.

In dealing with those who are undergoing great suffering, if you feel burnout setting in, if you feel demoralized and exhausted, it is best, for the sake of everyone, to withdraw and restore yourself. The point is to have a long-term perspective. ~ Dalai Lama

Being tired is not a badge of honor. It just means you're tired.

CPU Vulns are now public. There are two distinct vulns, in summary:

Meltdown: Memory accesses executed out of order after faults are leaked into caches. "Fixed" by KAISER at the cost of far slower switches between kernel and userspace. Mostly specific to Intel processors.

Spectre: Speculatively executed instructions on branch mispredictions can leak the address space through caches. No fix available it seems, and it affects Intel, AMD, & ARM processors. Possible to exploit from within browser sandboxes.
