PSA, Exploitation 

Just a friendly reminder: The easiest and most accessible form of class struggle is to be as unproductive at work as you can without getting fired. It requires no organization or resources, can be carried out by both individuals and groups, and can greatly improve your morale.
So strike a blow for the working class and goof off at work!

Kevin here, somewhat aged machinist, Linux enthusiast and general nuisance. Anarcho-Hedonist revolutionary but too lazy to organize. Ketogenic and lover of bacon. Can talk annoyingly about a huge range of nerdy subjects, but generally not with anything like authoritative knowledge. I have guns and enjoy shooting them sometimes. Pass the peas.

*slaps roof of catacomb* this bad boy can fit so many casks of amontillado in it

I'm sorry if someone brags on the internet about all their antifa actions that got them on watchlists and about all the badass stuff they do IRL my inclination is not to believe them I guess some of y'all have different expectations on the internet lol

The uprisings over racist police violence are not the endpoint - they're part of a pattern of waves of discontent that build and build in frequency and intensity, as more people come to the cause. On the way, the protests lead to structural changes that help with that growth.


It's well worth remembering how dangerous these ideas were and still are to the capitalist state, enough to impel the murder of Fred Hampton in 1969.

mads’ thread about certain people (read: amab queer ppl) being viewed as predatory for simply existing around children, or for wearing leather/PVC around children, brings up a really important topic not often discussed:

not discussing sex and sexuality is actively harmful to children’s development.

I teach children about sex and sexuality for a living. That is my full-time job. I am a sex educator, and I spent 40hrs a week discussing sex with underage people. Let’s talk about it.

Recently, GitHub decided to abandon ‘master’ and ‘slave’ terms to replace them with alternatives to avoid slavery references. That’s a really good move and practice but there are still some serious questions remaining:

@ar thanks.

Also, just as a PSA. Rabies is an incredibly serious disease. Once you have symptoms it’s more than 99% fatal

So, if you think you might have been exposed, go get treated. It’s very expensive (yay America) but it’s better than dying

@SeanAloysiusOBrien the overwhelming majority of the world pays a fraction of what an American does and also is pay as you go

it's honestly depraved that Americans don't even know how bad the concept of a cell phone contract is

It seems that Google wants to make using app bundles a requirement for new apps on Google Play in 2021:

This would mean developers have to upload their signing keys to google play even though there's no technical benefit in doing that. You can achieve the same efficient download sizes by using bundletool locally and uploading all generated apks. But it seems google will stop allowing that and just wants your signing keys.

They’re fine. They caught it early enough to get treated.

1)Close your windows if you don’t have screens in them or bats will come in

2)If you wake up with a bat in your bedroom or, for example, ON YOUR PILLOW, go get a rabies shot

Of course, in the middle of a global pandemic, both BOTH of my parents managed to contract rabies
