“The true content of Occupy Wall Street was not the demand, tacked onto the movement a posteriori like a post-it stuck on a hippopotamus, for better wages, decent housing, or a more generous social security, but disgust with the life we're forced to live. Disgust with a life in which we're all alone, alone facing the necessity for each one to make a living, house oneself, feed oneself, realize one's potential, and attend to one's health, by oneself.”

(To Our Friends by The Invisible Committee)

When in Louisville, do the usual: gluttony and sloth!

Further down south, in Louisville, Kentucky

Clifty Falls State Park is close to Madison, IN. Been meaning to visit for a long time! Happened to pass by, and had a couple of hours to stop by there last weekend.

Madison, Indiana has a very strong spring game for a town of its size!

I have two C/C++ projects (or maybe just one C project, not sure yet) with very broken autotools-based build system (because of "researchy" state of work, folks who worked on this modified Makefiles directly, etc.), and I am supposed to fix it.

Should I:

- Try to clean up the autotools setup?

Or

- Throw the broken things away and start over with something like Meson?

Today is a good day to honour all the good things the labour movement, and labour unions, have done for humanity.

Humane treatment of employees, workers having some free time every day and the weekends off, wages they can live on and support their family, and generally not being worked to death.
