Things that are IMO essential to stress-free computing:

Scheduled Backups (3-2-1 :house: - :house: - :cloud: )
Password Manager (Synced)
Rescue Live Disk (USB)
Backup Hardware (extra computer)
Cross-platform Software (FOSS)
Friends Smarter than Me.

Okay Fediverse I want to get to know you. Social media only works with friends. Hit me up and let's chat about whatever! Nothing is off the table. Feel free to reshare this.

I plan on purchasing Cyberpunk 2077 directly from so CD Projeckt gets all the profit. Sorry Steam, I love you, but I want this developer to stay around forever.

US Politics 

"Man, I wish there was something to distract the American people from my recent impeachment...oh HEY IRAN, I'm glad you're here!" -Trump's brain, I presume. If such a thing exists.
[Not an actual quote, obviously.]

Someone on Twitter mentioned that in some regions of Germany, a common idiom for whenever there's mist in the forest is "The foxes are making coffee", and thought the image was evocative enough for an illustration.

Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

In the near future, the most fun Let's Plays to watch won't be streamed by humans, but instead it will be AIs learning and figuring out a video game on their own.

On the "globally tragic, ridiculous mistake" made at the foundation of #digitalculture. "We can't have a society in which, if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is if it's financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them."

Loving She-Ra on Netflix.
great art and characters.
It's like if Avatar and Steven Universe had a baby.

But I want to know who is responsible for the opening theme song. That never should have been greenlit.

Just realized my profile's only external links are to tumblr...R.I.P.
