it's really hard to manually drive a train through the factory because roundabouts are everywhere and turning is a pain. that's my main pet peeve.

Making the factory into modules makes scaling really straightforward. Just make new, bigger module anywhere in the factory while the old modules continue to work. Then when the you're ready to switch over, just reroute the trains.

This factorio build is really over engineered and took significantly more time to build and i still don't have any rockets launched but it was really fun to build.

- electric powered
- can travel up to 200 mph
- passenger cap of 100
- runs along a track
- that sounds like a train
- yep its a train

ranting about science and its fans 

@selontheweb chauvinistic scientism is such such bullshit and i hate how resurgent it is

Criminals do not open. This is a very valuable toot, and I don't want it being thieved on my watch. 

Freeze! This is a sting operation! You're under arrest!


put me in a robot body so i don't have to deal with this back pain

heads up if you ever use gimp for redacting screenshots and the like 

with the default settings, "clear", or the delete key, only makes a region transparent but doesn't delete the colour info. it can easily be retrieved

ways to fix this are:
1. uncheck "save colour values from transparent pixels" when exporting
2. put a fresh transparent layer underneath everything, its colour info (pure black) will be saved instead
3. just fill the area with a solid colour instead
3.1. or save as jpeg

image description meta 

instead of hounding people for not providing image descriptions, reply to their post with a transcript, if you have the time and desire to

it indirectly encourages them to put a description on future posts and it actually helps people instead of just being more negative energy

and if the person didn't include an image description because /they/ didn't have the energy to, instead of guilting them for it, you are, again, helping, rather than just contributing more negativity

voting take 

Voting against a fascist sympathiser, regardless of whether who you're going to vote for to get there is a progressive or a compromised neolib, is just basic game theory. It's always better to do it.

There is simply no way around that fact. You can't pretend you exist outside it, much like you can't pretend that our society will automatically protect the marginalised from fascist violence.
