groundbreaking research unearths new evidence to support the revolutionary claim that "essentially, you don't need to be an asshole to be funny"

now the researchers are investigating whether the conjecture "and being an asshole doesn't improve your jokes either" is true, but they predict it is, and point to the heaps of empirical data that already supports the claim

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.

yays, i can connect to my 9front machine from the dorm!

@requiem Practically everything you would do with Linux server side can be done with any of the BSD's with very little change to the workflow.

There _are_ differences, such as if something requires some systemd cruft, that will not be there (as systemd developers don't support the BSD's.)

Some of the nomenclature is different; that is not the same as "missing" just "less likely to be found in a web search."

Security wise, the firewall setups are very different (and some would say better/more secure in many ways.)

I'd suggest installing one on a VM and spending some time getting to know it, then try whatever project you're doing on it instead of a Linux setup. Chances are you'll succeed.
Also, is an openbsd host in Amsterdam that uses part of your fee to give back to the OpenBSD project, and hosts which will have many answers for you. There is also the mastadon instance with BSD users.

"Fear versus hope. Hardly an even match."
"That's because you think of hope as something light and fragile. My version of hope has calluses and dirt under the fingernails and isn't past bringing brass knuckles to a fight."

@FiXato @codewiz @remotenemesis Neither Elite nor X-Com are multiplayer on Amiga, and neither is Elite II . However, later versions were multiplayer - and sadly, the latest is multiplayer _only_ which means lots of us who prefer the original style of NON-MULTIPLAYER are left out.
Also, one of the best things ever is playing, or watching, X-com being played by more than one person - working together to try to defeat the game. Some of the best livestreams of gaming I have watched have been of people playing X-com ... especially when they name the units after the people in the stream.

The best version of the original X-com is open X-com, which sadly does not run on Amiga. At least I don't think anyone's tried to compile it for Amiga (:

anyways, trains are still good but holy fuck please can we have a Transit Companies Have More Accessible And Functionally Sound Websites Challenge 2019???

instead of a 10% discount, MAV should give me a yearly pass for debugging this crap

set it to 1, that apparently means "today"

such user friendliness

i'm sure everyone else can also figure out how to manually edit a URL to fix this broken website

oh, ok, the when (mikor) parameter in the url is set to -1 by default for..... SOME reason

@grainloom @vfrmedia incidentally, β€œphotoshop” as a verb means (apparently) β€œmaking a thing look like a different thing by sticking something in front of it.”

@grainloom @vfrmedia all the kids, not yet born during the rise of google, say β€œsearch it up”, and fail to recognise β€œgoogle” as a verb as anything more than a weird old people thing like saying β€œclick” instead of β€œtap”


that was the reason

except their website didn't tell me that

MAV refuses to log me into my freshly created account

so now I can say goodbye to that sweet sweet 10% discount....

Wouldn't it be wonderful if #China kept its #propaganda minions off those networks that it blocks in its dark empire behind the #GreatFirewall? From my point of view #WuMao folks are welcome to shut the fuck up. #Beijing's efforts to spread its falsehoods are just too painfully obvious. Bunch of utter muppets. Illustration from #NYTimes:

im sad to inform you that, due to rising costs and inflation, 69 is no longer "nice"... we've had to adjust to 73
