Hear me out: tech conferences, but instead of masturbating about http you unionize everyone present

trying to get a basic test skeleton up and running for a mod-perl authn/authz module, and i'm at the "burn everything with fire, it's the only way to be sure" part of the process.

hello fediverse!

i'd like to make a #boston fediverse meetup happen for local fedifolks.

please boost for visibility, and reply or dm to let me know if you'd be interested in attending such a thing :blobbounce:

hey, my :heart_orange:​ android masto client, @Tusky , just merged the PR that will rickroll people on fash instances. I'm going to show my support by donating to them on opencollective.com/tusky , and if you want to support them & have the means, maybe you could too!

So @npmjs@twitter.com retaliated against employees for organizing and is doubling down on it.

"Do your part" energy conservation plans, like turning lights off when you leave the room, are great for your energy bill, but their job as part of "lowering carbon footprints" is to deflect from the big corporations that actually use the vast majority of the power.

For example, the average US stand-alone home uses ~11,000 kWh per year.

The VERY MOST EFFICIENT roadside LED billboard uses ~61,000 kWh per year. That number rises to ~323,000 kWh at the top end.

it feels like trying to push two same pole magnets together, and if you're not dead on and constantly making adjustments, you just get shot the hell off to the side and have to start again from the beginning.

man, the effort required to get my brain to focus on and/or do a thing sometimes is frustrating. i need to finish an online training course for human subjects research, and I can get through about 5-6 paragraphs of text before my focus just...skips off the edge of the studying and demands i check email/slack/etc for the 4000th time in the past hour.

Anyone have any recommendations for low-end coax crimping kits? Or horror stories? We've got coax run to a bunch of rooms but not terminated. I just need to do one room now, but knowing I'll need to do the others helps me justify not just using twist-ons.
