Hmm, anyone recommend a USB-C hub with an audio port? Want to be able to connect 2~4 USB-A devices to my iPad so I can record audio / use a midi controller while listening through a wired connection.

My current USB-C hub does _not_ have an audio out port! Nor does my iPad! So I can't record a second track because the microphone picks up the monitor :X

2. The Kubelet is not magic
3. The Network is not magic
4. Etcd is not magic

I'm not usually big on putting myself out there visually but would there be interest in a YT channel or IG feed about inexpensive, nutritious, simple meals to make -- specifically geared toward trans or even lgbtiqa+ youth who weren't necessarily taught even the basics of boiling water and done in a non-judgemental way?

I feel like this is something I could do as I pretty much had to teach myself to cook when I moved out and I've gotten good at it but I remember how daunting even lighting the gas stove was.

I think I'm getting better about my ADHD.

I'm up to three times: daytime, nighttime, sleeptime.

It looks like there's a lot of confusion as to what open-source hardware is, so we made a godawful flowchart to help make it more clear what it means.

I'm not saying that cracking, pirating, and distributing Cyberpunk 2077 from the international corporations that control access to it isn't illegal, but like... it's pretty on brand though. Do with that what you will.

The Arecibo telescope, which once broadcast a message into space and listened for extraterrestrial signals, which discovered the existence of neutron stars and binary pulsars, which found prebiotic chemicals in nebulae, which provided the first actual imaging of an asteroid, which for the first time correctly determined the rotational period of Mercury, and which was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria, has been slated for decommissioning.

So Drew DeVault, in a recent post about people changing their primary git branch from "master" to "main," says, "I have still never seen even one first-hand take from a PoC, but I've seen enough second-hand accounts to at least reduce confidence in my position."

I just want to point out that I (conditionally a person of color, at the least, not-white) and other people of color have blocked Drew Devault, for a variety of reasons.

I blocked him because he reply-guyed me to say my unarmed relatives deserved to be shot at Wounded Knee because they weren't complying with the military's orders.

That he lumps himself in with "the left" in a preceding post should give other white leftists pause about those they allow to claim affiliation. His presence in a community, even through having his writing discussed within that community, makes it feel unsafe for me: here is someone who thinks it is okay to kill people like me if we don't listen to people like him. Once again, it is the establishment of "assimilate or be exterminated" as the acceptable standard of cultural exchange between whites and others, and it is only y'all white folk who can stop it.

Said it once, said it ten thousand times. decenter your whiteness.

Today's issue of Tales from the Dork Web is especially 🔥

"The biggest con Silicon Valley ever pulled off was convincing us they’re masters of innovation. Netflix brought us digital movie distribution *cries in Bittorrent*. Apple introduced Music streaming to the world *laughs in Napster*. Facebook invented social media *no they didn’t*."

"You’ve likely never heard of 82-year-old computer scientist Lynn Conway, but her discoveries power your smartphones and computers. Her research led to successful startups in Silicon Valley, supported national defense, and powered the internet.

Long before becoming a highly respected elderly professor at the University of Michigan, Conway was a young researcher with IBM IBM . It was there, on August 29, 1968, that IBM’s CEO fired her for [being trans]. Nearly 52 years later, in an act that defines its present-day culture, IBM apologized and sought forgiveness."
