I haven't been posting yesterday and today because I've been reading @mwlucas books, and once I start quoting, I won't stop. Apparently it's bad form to quote entire books or something?

But yeah, if you use Linux/BSD/anything with a shell, do yourself a favour and read his books. SSH Mastery and Sudo Mastery are both not too long, terribly well-written, and will provide you with a foundation of knowledge beyond the typical hodgepodge of things you had to learn to get a thing done.

Firefox's new Picture-in-Picture feature is really great. It's simple, easy to use, and does exactly what you want it to be. Good work, Mozilla!

furry fedi meta take: please to an effort to encourage and give visibility to artists and content creators that are not already established inside or outside the fediverse

Boost stream announcements, boost sketches, boost music, boost whatever stuff your mutuals' mutuals post out, even if it's not S-Tier art, it's not a huge effort for you but it makes a huge difference for them and they need it

Computer Secrets!

💻 Most computers flower only once every 100 years, but some flower and bear fruit each year if well watered and cared for

💻 The opposite of a computer is ghosts

💻 We all just pretend UNIX exists

💻 Processor cycles are marketing hype. We have all been on a 24-hour processor cycle since the early 1990s

💻 The Bible was originally written and compiled in QBASIC

💻 "USB keys" is the scientific term for computer egg sacs

💻 Variables with $ in their names are only usable by premium coders

There is no one way to be trans

Everyone has different reasons for being trans and that's ok

We don't need do find "the thing" that makes people trans

It's up to the individual to decide what makes them trans

Y'all, imma issue a challenge:

Before buying a thing on Amazon, take just two minutes to see if it's available elsewhere online.

There's very often another seller that is price competitive, and free shipping is super common these days.

If you still wanna buy from Bezos I'm not gonna stop you, but it's worth at least checking for alternatives. Divesting yourself can be easier than you might think.

Pspeudo-hot take but uhhhh, computer programming is no more a "science" (in the elitist sense) than writing a book is.

L3n4 :heart_pride: relayed

I believe that anyone can learn to program, and the elevation of ~computer science~ as an elitist field only for big brain geniuses is entirely an effort to separate computing from it's roots: maths done by secretaries that was seen as "women's work" and massively devalued.

As more and more women get back into dev, it will again be seen as frivolous work anyone could do, unlike the "real days" when "manly men" slung code in assembler and c.

(jokes on them it was trans girls all along lol)

An update from Chelsea Manning's support team on her ongoing incarceration
boingboing.net/2020/01/29/an-u

We wanted to let everyone know about the new website that just went up at ReleaseChelsea.com where people can learn more about #ChelseaManning 's current situation.

Chelsea has not been charged with, let alone convicted of a crime, but she can be imprisoned for up to 18 months, until either the term of the grand jury expires, or she agrees to cooperate with their investigation
