"Windows 95 was 30Mb. Today we have web pages heavier than that! Google keyboard app routinely eats 150 Mb. Is an app that draws 30 keys on a screen really five times more complex than the whole Windows 95?" **Must Read** : tonsky.me/blog/disenchantment/

How is it that someone out there is getting money to test the effects of MDMA on octopi, but I can't get funding to help make museum exhibits accessible for people who are blind or visually impaired

So, men of tech: you've now learned that Linus didn't "apologize" and didn't "finally adopt a Code of Conduct" at all. Right? You all see what happened here, yes?

You're going to be more careful about patting abusers on the back in the future, yes?

I'm an academic (See @data) and a Let's Player (I do rather philosophical and academic Let's Plays at: youtube.com/user/denubisx)

This is mostly for personal thoughts and screaming into the void.

Hey, do any of you folks speak Arabic? I ... kinda need to translate an attribution phrase (to the egpytian ministry of antiquities) into Arabic and I cringe at what google translate has probably managed.

everytime my husband says something dickish I keep saying "is it muharram (the first islamic month which is sacred) or haram month"

Oh good, @nowplaying is broken because the libre.fm maintainer decided to yank the frontend offline due to a lack of resources to maintain it.

Now I've got the perfect reason for self-hosting that shit too.

(Yeah, yeah, I was supposed to get around to this already. I have lacks of resources too. No hard feelings, libre.fm person.)

Job hunts getting worse by the day. More places not getting back to me or out right rejecting me. Any help you provide is most appreciated.

Google is failing me so I'll ask ya'll. There was a serial story/blog I used to read in the mid-2000s about a guy who was writing in his diary about surviving the zombie apocalypse, it was updating in "real" time and you would come back every few days to read the next entry. At first it was just him, but then he got a whole camp together, and eventually the story actually ended. Anybody remember/know what it was called?

thanks Europe for passing a garbage copyright bill fit for the 20th century and making me figure it out in my fair use assignment

#Europe has passed their new #copyright bill.

As Lawrence Lessig had pointed out in a talk well over a decade ago, extremism on one side will always engender extremism on the other.

This will end badly. It'll entrench incumbents, at the very least, and likely push people to guerrilla P2P approaches.

Sometimes I use mastodon on my computer and ignore my phone, but then I look at how many notifications I got in the meantime and I suddenly I realize why I'm not a successful author or even much of a functional person.
