Spend time #techdiving this morning over a less-common wreck---the Xlendi. It flipped over while being scuttled and has since claimed the lives of several divers trying to penetrate it without the appropriate training.

Oh my. #Microsoft #Powershell can run a script file. But if you do that, you no longer can redirect stdout and stderr. Why? Because the file parameter needs to receive the last argument in the command... and stdout redirects also need to be the last argument in the command... so those get ignored.

Solution: invoke powershell twice:

powershell -command "powershell -file myscript.ps1" 1>>stdout.log 2>>stderr.log

And thanks, Microsoft.

Hello, Octodonners. It looks like Alice's patreon in support of our chosen instance has plateaued. Please do what you can to help our friendly neighborhood cyberpunk queen, @CobaltVelvet

Donating is grand; boosting this, even, will be helpful, to get the message around.

crypto is short for "cryptography"

if you want a shorter word for "cryptocurrency", the word you are looking for is "ponzi"

Apparently, the reason the NHS contact tracing app fell over on my fairphone was because some e users got very concerned about their ~privacy~ so the solution that e came up with was to silently kill the app I was relying on.

My best friend has cancer and I thought I would get exposure notifications which is slightly more life and death than privacy fantasies of fossbros.

They ~silently~ disabled the entire covid thing. I am so livid. This was supposed to be better than google, but in this case they've showed way less sense and responsibility

(I'm going to at the companies involved rather than subtoot them:

My bank's mobile app just told me I've been a client for 26 years. I think they're trying to sell me some kind of pension fund
