I really hate the police. Less of a lewd post, more of a motto

Are you low-key freaking out about omicron? Yeah, me too. Can't we catch a break?

Maybe.

Step one to preventing new, scarier mutant strains is to reduce the number of infected people, which require a mix of ventilation, masking, distancing, and, of course, vaccinations.

These days, the "vaccine controversy" is primarily about vaccine-hesitancy and vaccine denial - that is, about people who can get the vaccine but choose not to.

@pluralistic fyi for people in the EU, there's a citizens initiative who want to make these vaccines and treatments a global public good and freely accessible to everyone.

If enough people from EU sign it (1.000.000) with enough spread (each country has a threshold, the threshold of at least 7 coutries need to be reached), the EU commission must meet with the people making the initiative and formulate and answer to it.

It's maybe not much, but it's something people can do.

i want to write a script that automatically levels the framebuffer

I'm gonna propose a new USB plug: type D, which will fit every other kind of USB plug and be perfectly backwards compatible

Lessons learned are: using poly-rhythms and loop recordings at the same time is _hard_ 😩

video game take violent games vs empire 4x games 

I think there is definitely a complex discussion to have about violence in video games, though my personal take is that jingoism, nationalism and an unquestioning embrace of the military is far more problematic (much like my issue with super hero movies).

There is a rising awareness of colonialism in games but I think 4x games in general get too much of a pass.

A general PSA: if you keep wanting to cut off your toxic family, and you're in a position where you're able to: you can, and you should. You are NOT a bad person for doing it, you deserve love and safety.

ban developers having nice things

I'm so tired of needing the very latest hardware and software to use anything bc devs test all their work on the computer equivalent of a supercar and think it's ok to demand we use it on one

i wanna take the OT to the afra to fiddle with between builds but i'm worried i'll get too deeply sucked into it and not do any work,,,

:thaenkin:

actually that sounds like a win-win
