Macros can be useful but I feel like we should ban certain people from touching them.

For example, imagine if someone were to use the C preprocessor to create an elaborate object orientation system for C, calling it GObject, and then create an entire graphics stack up to and including a desktop environment, called, say, GNOME.

I think that's the kind of person who should no longer be allowed to use the C preprocessor.

I think the most important lesson to learn from free software is that after people have enough money to put food on the table they're willing to put time into something with no monetary benefit

You: Intel architecture
Me: Actually, Intel is the manufacturer. You're thinking of Intel's monster.

@jordyd huh what's your ip protocol address number

Just realized “an IP” is the exact opposite mistake as “an ATM machine”

officer: what's an IP? and what are all these numbers?

I'm sending all the IPs that have tried to log in via ssh to the local police department. That'll teach 'em

Before I configured sshd to drop unresponsive sessions, I would occasionally type `who` and freak bc there were more ttys than I was logged into

On a serious note tho, I think I'm more than capable and qualified to hold a number of tech jobs, I just have so much anxiety about applications

Never really cared about bucket lists tbh, I've always thought they sounded morbid. But I decided to start one and here's what I have so far:

- get a job

Though to be fair, this is also the man who dismissed genetic testing with the phrase “you actually believe in that stuff?”

Like if I read this somewhere, like on a forum or smth, I’d be thinking like “that’s pretty funny but there’s no way that actually happened”.

tired: removing all exif data from every image you post
wired: just posting the images as they are
inspired: using exiftool to add your home and work address to all images before posting them

I don’t remember if I ever posted this, so I’ll say it again just in case:

My grandfather is very conservative, and he’s driven 18 wheelers his whole life. Once, when he was very drunk, he got upset about new trucks that had backup cameras, and, I shit you not, blamed their existence on Democrats. This is always the kind of thing that I expected him to say, but let me tell you I was still amazed when I heard it come out of his mouth.

Tips to stay anonymous on the fe diverse

1. Strip exif data from pictures
2. Don't use your real name
3. NEVER post a picture of a train

Whatever it is I probably did it

GPG is complaining about some "dirmngr" but I'm too tired to figure out what's wrong rn

I love how it has "YAK." at the bottom. Like it's in caps but you can tell they're not yelling. It's just that refined.

me: frantically searching "how many yaks does it take to make a smol yurt."

Oh wait I guess they can wait an arbitrary amount of time before the ACK, and it acknowledges everything to that point. Ignore me
