Listening to Howard always calms me down. So much sanity! (He's a bit frail in this one already, but it's okay.)

flea market 

Trying to find a good home for this thing, ideally in Munich, Germany so I don't have to deal with shipping. It's as good as new, very light use for a few months, then packed up and shelved. It deserves to make noise instead. All the bits and bobs are there. And you get some of my patterns for free, a dubious honor I guess.

Software process 

Creating, assigning, estimating, verifying, closing a case. Creating, reviewing, approving a pull request. Merging that pull request. For two characters that changed. Two. I'll leave you to ponder what it all means...

Joining the "flower party" as well with what's growing wild behind the house.

"The magic of eating a hair of the dog which bit you in order to cure hydrophobia is as nothing to the magic involved in the belief that those who have privilege and power will remedy the breakdown they have created. As long as politics is the shadow cast on society by big business, the attenuation of the shadow will not change the substance. The only remedy is new political action based on social interests and realities." - John Dewey, 1931

Turns out something else happened in 1976 that's also pretty awesome. Who knew?

anarchism overload 

Countries are bullshit.

Reminder: Mechanical keyboards, especially old ones, are deadly weapons.

Every time I fire up DOOM (the original DOOM mind you) I go "You know, this is actually not half-bad. If graphics never took another step, I'd be okay with this." If I the fire up Quake 2 I go "Wow, that's pretty awesome! If graphics never took another step, I'd be MORE than okay with THIS!" Needless to say, at that point, firing up Unreal or Quake 3 blows my mind so hard that I never get to another game. A few days after this I usually start Baldur's Gate again. I'm totally set, game-wise.

Macho man? Nah. Nacho man? You bet'cha! 😋 😋

"All definite knowledge—so I should contend—belongs to science; all dogma as to what surpasses definite knowledge belongs to theology. But between theology and science there is a No Man’s Land, exposed to attack from both sides; this No Man’s Land is philosophy."

<rant> Alright Debian 11, I've really had it with your shit. Who told you to turn into Windoze and decide for yourself when to install uprades? I thought only the Ubuntu freaks are nuts enough for this, but I guess I was wrong. Or did you finally get overwhelmed by systemd? Maybe you didn't even put this into Debian, maybe it's just systemd that decided to do automated upgrades and you copied that crap right in? I wouldn't be surprised anymore... </rant>

For some reason dealing with SVG is a real pain on OpenBSD. I guess I need to go back to Debian/Ubuntu to get some mapping done. 😕

"At a demonstration against X it came to clashes between demonstrators and the police; Y police officers were injured, some seriously; Z demonstrators were arrested."

"As long as politics is the shadow cast on society by big business, the attenuation of the shadow will not change the substance." - John Dewey, 1931 (I think)

I am mad. 

Alright, Germany can now OFFICIALLY kiss my ass with their AMAZINGLY STUPID LAWS that require me to SHOW AN ID or REGISTER A CREDIT CARD to prove that I am "old enough" to watch the music video to Paul Hardcastle's "19" on youtube. Fuck. This. Shit.
