quick psa about my emoji usage
πŸ’™ : friendly, not romantic
❀ : probably romantic
so, if I toot a blue heart at you, it's not intended as romantic affection. I thought I should clarify that, since some people might feel uncomfortable with hearts being thrown at them.

Many years ago, I sat in on a CS programming course once. The prof cited a Knuth paper (Structured Programming with go to Statements), stating that goto was a forbidden construct and all who used it would automatically fail.

It was the first time I observed a blatant disregard for well-thought out arguments in a formal setting. The case the paper ultimately made was that there are often, but *not always*, better constructs to use.

Over the years I see the disturbing trend continue.

secret gender, for experts only: doublegirl.

@grainloom @letyepetyelepetye its amazing right! in scientific studies they removed part of the host's brain that controls dopamine that the wasps target, and the lady wasps get rly confused, they're like "hey wtf where did it go, i know its in here somewhere" and they actively look for that aspect of the roach body cuz T H E Y.

i'm not super involved in the bowser thing but if you wanna make a female version of a male character who is huge and monstrous you better keep them at least as huge and monstrous

*slaps the roof of a Trojan horse* this thing can fit so many soldi... Er, nothing. There's nothing in it. No sir, you misheard.

CVE-2018-12169: Platform sample code firmware included with Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake and Cannon Lake processors contains a logic error allowing a physical attacker to bypass BootGuard firmware authentication.

Of course the whole 'Are Ernie and Bert gay" thing is a mess because most hets have no concept of homosexuality except via sex.

So while us queers are eager to see a pair of male-identified characters who love each other acting as early childhood role models and modelling relationships that small children might see in the real world, they can't get their minds away from "PUPPETS FUCKING OMG!!!!!"

This one time at Bandcamp I purchased lots of great music direct from the artists.

Progress screenshots of an unfinished project from a bit over a year ago: RIPScrip renderer in JavaScript.

RIPScrip was a quirky BBS protocol for transmitting color vector graphics over text that surged briefly in the early to mid 90's. Thanks to the slow modem connections of the day you could actually see the art slowly building itself. This was sometimes used to by artists to create little weird animations.

Ended up dropping the project when I couldn't find sources for the vector fonts used in RIPScrip.

So they still face the same problems, all open source #Android variants have: Proprietary hardware, proprietary GSM-modules.

But there may be a solution for both problems soon:

The ZeroPhone's GSM-module may be liberated by the efforts of the #PostmarketOS-Project to write open source firmware:

And even the RaspberryPi may have a fully open source bootloader soon:

But all of those projects will still need a lot of time and ressources.
