The true dichotomy of life.

Awake, and Awake but with the eyes closed.

I am sorry, but I must come clean.

I am not my pet cat who is sitting on an IBM 5155 knockoff.

I am the IBM 5155.

Put your hair up, wear your generic gray hoodie, and go on out

IT is an essential service now

that means that the people running it are infrastructure workers

like the people maintaining trains, roads and garbage trucks

Wow. These fuckers calling Peer to Peer software to be unethical. Bitch.

Being made to do a review course on I.T. Security by the company. All employees must.

So here is my rundown!

1. No using Microsoft. Even though the company email uses Outlook, this is unsecure :battery_empty: :black_sparkling_heart_white:

2. No using Google Chrome or Google's Search engine, even if we're told we should for all company work. Never do this. :battery_low: :black_sparkling_heart_black:

3. No using Windows. Just. Don't. At all. I know I said no using Microsoft, but returning to especially say no Windows :battery_ok: :black_sparkling_heart:

Very important steps~ :black_sparkles_outline: :battery_full: :black_sparkles_outline:

“You think Big Brother is watching you on the subway? You’re absolutely right.”
-New York governor Kathy Hochul, quoted in the New York Times about the introduction of surveillance cameras into subway cars

There's always an excuse to expand surveillance. But the state being stronger will not necessarily make us safer.

We are inspired by those who resist.

Silly posting aside, I want to thank the Cybrespace staff for all their hard work, I will miss this place and I'm sad to see it go, but I understand where staff is coming from. I'm not sure what mastodon I'll be on, but I'll be on Frag-Net's Matrix and other networks. In short, "I'll be around".

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

sad, sad day honestly

i always knew this would have to happen eventually -- i mean everything ends, right?

but it still hurts now that the time has finally come

Will miss this instance, if any wish to find me on my other one look for @SpiritualTechie

To those on the council, I put forth the following motion: meow.

I wonder if a .mission domain exists? I could make a news site calls trans.mission

when the haters* tell you to stop shitposting on mastodon


Chronic Pain, Gloves 

Ended up talking to someone who recommended a pair of fingertip-less copper infused gloves. My opinions on the infused aside they praised the gloves for being tight without killing circulation, so I should be able to use them without issue.

Will find out when they get here

any app that adds itself to your startup queue without your consent should be considered malware /hj

If you're worried your sarcasm might be too ambiguous, just include the word "totally" in there somewhere. Or just say it's sarcasm. Or say "not to be sarcastic but" if you wanna go for irony points. Or add "/s" to the end like the geeks do. Or use the interrobang in place of a period, which one glorious nerd proposed as the sarcasm punctuation mark. Typography is fascinating!

Alternatively, we can all live without sarcasm. You know what we can't live without? Communication. Assholes who say you shouldn't communicate unless you understand all the intricacies of everything involved are the worst kinds of people.

This is why we can't have nice things: 28 android apps downloaded over 10 million times found to contain malware

And then people wonder what's the difference between downloading from Play store vs #fdroid. Not that the latter is perfectly secure either, but I trust it many, many times more. "But isn't it just about ads," they ask. That's just the tip of the iceberg!!
