other than you yourself, how many people have logged into your primary "daily driver" computer during the last six months?

a group of tweens gets off the bus and begins walking toward the house, laughing together. the garage begins to open and one of them freezes, suddenly overcome with terror as they slowly turn to look. they whisper

"dad, no..."

Asking for a friend:

Anyone know a good employment lawyer in WA state who would work pro bono? I suspect that requiring someone to have a car for a single location desk job is not legal.

boosts appreciated

Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?

I am a big supporter of Small Tech: three line shell scripts, gopher holes, when websites render properly on a VIC-20, building your new PC tower out of the 10 year old PCs your neighbours recently discarded, solving your own problems without worrying about scale.

hey y'all remember when I encoded the hit film Hackers (1995) in 8M? and how it was entirely unrecognizable, low resolution, low framerate, and had no audio?

well, since then, Mastodon has upped its media limit to 40M

so, I present to you: Hackers (1995) in 40M, with sound, at 24FPS and full resolution! encoded with state-of-the-art tools and codecs for your viewing pleasure

Really wish all these ARM SBCs had a common basic firmware providing a simple framebuffer device over HDMI and USB HID keyboard support. Like, a Basic Input/Output System that software developers could rely on. That would be neat.

The gender today is the smell of gasoline and sound of a dial-up modem.
