Is there a delay on the NASA stream ? I'm watching the ESA stream on the Ariane Space YouTube channel and we're 9 minutes into the flight but you guys are talking about liftoff

The first step towards fixing problems is being able to acknowledge that problems exist. The belief that western culture is superior to all others is directly at odds with addressing many of its inherent problems driving the collapse.

jooks programming warning 

the separation between code and data is a lie

it's a fucking computer, all data is interpreted by a set of rules to do something.

just like 'code' is interpreted by a compiler, or VM, or CPU, to do things

it's all interpreters taking instructions and compilers transforming things

this is why user-supplied 'data' should be thought of as user-supplied 'code' and needs to be treated with as much caution

Shitpost 

Libs say "you should wipe your ass" and spend all their time caring about being "clean", bit then they say, you have to KEEP wiping your ass? Every time you shit? 😆😂🤣🤣🤣 It never ends with them!

So we all need to wipe our asses, which makes them clean, so we can wipe them again because they don't stay clean? 😉😇🙃🙃😆

They're too credulous to see they're in the pocket of big TP. Think about it! What sold out worldwide immediately after the planedmic started?

Don't be a sheeple. Own the libs by ignoring their shilling for big paper. Of our god-given right to go wherever we want with unwiped asses, leaving a trail of poo crumbs in our wake.

I have to change the config for the ethernet interface on this corporate workstation. I opened a support ticket this morning, because of course this is a Very Forbidden thing to do and requires Elevation (nevermind the letters "IT" on my access badge). Just got confirmation that this will be taken care of tomorrow morning. Great

Your periodic reminder that Penguin Random House LLC, Hachette Book Group, Inc., John Wiley & Sons, Inc., HarperCollins Publishers LLC. are suing the Internet Archive:

Until they figure this out I'm being extra careful to not add to their legal fund by purchasing the plaintiffs' materials.

Web 0: Literally Tim Berners-Lee's NeXT at CERN.

Web 1: I'm using NCSA Mosaic to download NASA pictures of Mars, whoa!

Web 2.0: TV (by Disney Netflix+) with a Buy Button (which is patented by Jeff Bezos, who also owns you)

Web3: The one by David Fincher where everyone is killed off at the start, it's set in a prison colony, Sigourney Weaver shaves her head and it's a giant scam machine built by the same literal fascists who tried to do a coup. Just skip it.

Web4: Maybe we get this one right?

I’ve said this before, but my view of performative “inclusion” of the plaster-everything-with-trans-flags variety is that while it doesn’t fix institutional transphobia, it does at least annoy bigots and makes them feel isolated and outnumbered

Just sent to management a recap of the reasons things are running late. Of course it boils down to "I don't have admin privileges on my workstation, and IT support is slow".
