Pinned oot

I'm an aromatic ace. More specifically, the aroma in question is coffee.

Pinned oot

sort of late

I'm 20, He/Him, ace, Belgian, CS student and board member of a student organization that promotes FOSS.

I think functional programming, narrative indie games, cartoons, webcomics and noize/punk/ska music are really cool. I also think cats are amazing.

this lecture's surprisingly ableist and trying to be cutesy about it and just. wow.

I don't own a typewriter and I could probably find one in my grandparents' attic or the thrift shop but likely they'd need repairs and I'd need to find a fresh lint somewhere (are those generic or do I need a specific type? do they even make typewriter lint anymore?) and that's just a hell of a rabbit hole on it's own already.

wondering how much time it would take to read dijksta's papers until I can copy his writing style, write a pseudo 1960s CS paper, type it out on a typewriter, artificially age the paper a bit, add some coffee stains, and scan it

I'm gay and tired. Boost this if you're gay and tired

An important reminder from the Anarchist Federation (@AnarchistFed@twitter.com):

It is often said that anarchists live in a world of dreams to come, and do not see the things which happen today. We do see them only too well, and in their true colors, and that is what makes us carry the hatchet into the forest of prejudice that besets us.
-- Peter Kropotkin

Scared Silicon Valley billionaire:

Look, you're just not grasping the scale of the AI threat. What if an AI one day is built that decides to harvest large chunks of the Earth's biosphere in order to make some numbers in a financial engine go up slightly? What would we all do then?

Climate change and species loss researchers:

Really? That's a thing that could happen? And people might not believe the predictions? Do go on.

Billionaire:

Well OBVIOUSLY I don't mean it's happening NOW

Fuck Fracking, like seriously... When you can't win by the rules change them evidently.

Some Asshole: The only reason someone will ever be nice is if it benefits them somehow

Humans: I'm gonna bring this plant home, and name him Greg, and water him every day. I love you Greg.

still haven't installed firefox nightly on my new laptop and I keep forgetting that automatic muting of autoplay videos hasn't landed in stable firefox yet. That's a killer feature tbh, really missing it.

Oh sure, when a million dollar company puts files on my computers that track my activity its 'cookies' and 'business', but when I put files on their computers that extract information its 'hacking' and 'illegal' #computing #internet #privacy #bigdata #doublestandards
