So I set up a RTC wakeup on my PC, and it worked well for a long time. But recently it stopped working some specific days. After some investigation, I have discovered the root cause.

If I end my day working on Microsoft Windows the PC won't wake up at the specific time. Such a shitty OS.

we know that Amazon could likewise take down all Mastodon instances running on AWS, right? the Mastodon software generates a characteristic traffic pattern that can be used to identify all instances running Mastodon, and then *flips switch to off*

federation doesn't mean anything if the vast majority of the servers being federated run on one provider that can turn them off on a whim.

before when i was younger, i often asked "why do mad scientists explain their plan to the hero? it just tells them how to stop you."

now that i'm a mad scientist myself, the answer is simple. you ever tried keeping a brilliant plan to yourself? it's fucking hard.

I have unfortunately catch a cold that everyone thought it was COVID-19. It was not, but I have suffered every hour I have been in the hospital.
