Why pulling plastic out of the open ocean is futile, and what approaches could actually work instead-especially if they got the kind of funding that that flash project with the vapourware booms does: hakaimagazine.com/features/sco

Ok so, odd ask, but... fuel pump shat the bed, and I'm stranded in Coeur d'Alene Idaho until such time as I can repair it or secure another (BMW wants $700 to ship the part to the nearest dealer in Spokane, WA by Friday at the soonest.... could be much longer to secure part from another source). I'm broke AF and need a safe place to sleep and wrench on a bike within, say, my AAA max towing distance of 200 miles of here.

anyone know of something interesting to do with the second slot in a dual-sim phone? data-only plans are expensive and I don't have the usage to need it
wondering if there's collective ISPs based on the open source 3G tower stuff or that kind of thing

by the way, if you're shipping books or anything that the usps considers educational (including, hilariously, player piano rolls), media mail's often a cheaper way to ship things

USPS: media mail
me and also smash mouth: but the media mail begs to differ, judging by the hole in the satellite picture

legalised torture of the disabled... sorry but that's what this is 

A federal appeals court axed a ban on the use of electric shock devices for correctional purposes.

Of course, the parents supported lifting the ban, rendering them wholly unfit parents.

A lot of the patients are autistic. Wanna know why autistics don't give a shit what neurotypicals say when it comes to "autism advocacy" and want them to shut up? This is why. They think torturing kids is "life-saving." This is how fucked up these parents are.

Just, holy fuck Mass, shut this fucking place down and take the kids away of anyone who would send them here.

Broke my phone screen and I'm not fucking happy >.>
Expensive fucking repair, too

I like how this headline sorta implies he wasn’t aware of it until it happened.

So you know how the 1541 has a 6502 in it? (it's basically a computer in a disk drive, but it has no display...)

So um

Here's a demo, and a writeup about the demo, on how to make a demo for a 1541 disk drive.

and have it display stuff.

Um.

"wow."

Mind you the start of the demo showed cutting cables and I was very "NOOOooOOOO don't damage the equipment" so I hope people make custom cables instead of damaging cables but that's me

reposting this but with cw: suicide and kiwi farms 

RT @delroth_@twitter.com

One of the most esteemed emulation developers, @near_koukai@twitter.com most likely committed suicide today. He was pushed to suicide by online harassment targeting him and his friends for multiple years. This is how the harassers on Kiwi Farms reacted to the news.

I still haven't fully processed what happened today. Near is not someone I talked to a lot, let alone knew personally, but they've always been someone I admired. Their work on bsnes/ares has inspired me and many others to get into emulation and aspire to higher quality work.

I encourage you to read @near_koukai@twitter.com's latest tweets about this to learn more about how online harassment can impact you and other. And how powerless you'll be to make it stop.
