Peter Welch:
"So no, I'm not required to be able to lift objects weighing up to fifty pounds.
I traded that for the opportunity to trim Satan's pubic hair while he dines out of my open skull so a few bits of the internet will continue to work for a few more days."

Christopher Hitchens: "I had long since learned to ask Maynard Keynes's question: When the facts change then my opinion changes: and you, sir?"

New npm module: @small-tech/cross-platform-hostname

Attempts to bring Windows 10 in line with hostname conventions in Linux/macOS. Set your primary DNS suffix and this module will return your full computer name (which can be a valid domain name as under Linux/macOS) instead of just your computer name.


npm i @small-tech/cross-platform-hostname


const hostname = require('@small-tech/cross-platform-hostname')
console.log(`Your hostname is: ${hostname}`)

I passed by the #climatestrike yesterday here in Naples. I really can't feel like I belong to this movement.

* I don't like slogans, and the ones I heard were pretty violent, including death threats to right wing people, and far left typical songs.
Anger was the feeling I perceived the most, which may biased because angry people shout the most.

* People knew a lot about climate and environment. That is, until you ask questions. There is no place for doubts in this climate action.

* The traffic was stopped by a human wall. I had to exchange insults and raise my bicycle to get past the fu**ing barricade.

* I do not know how to feel when kids, like 12 yo, engage in such political actions. I still feel like they are too young to really get what's happening.

I'd like to repost a picture that @freemo posted a long while ago
