Apparently there's a transnational Amazon strike and boycott today (10th July) due to horrendous working conditions in their warehouses. Let's do our best to support workers & not visit amazon's websites, or their subsidiaries like audible or twitch today!

Laptop No. 2 returned!

I am finally outside of the Best Buy reality distortion field, and I hope it sticks.

Fuck modern laptop companies, man. All I want is a T430s with a FHD screen and an 8th gen processor. I'd pay a hell of a lot for it.

Why is that so hard?

Current read: "Technically wrong" by Sara Wachter-Boettcher.

I've barely started and it already feels like a mandatory reading for anyone involved in tech.

i dont know where i first heard it, but i really like the term social interaction networks rather than social media. take back the language. we're aren't media and relationship building isn't marketing.

Still boggling at this wonderful 2009 paper about how either economics is true, or computer science, but not both.

<< The majority of financial academics believe in weak form efficiency and the majority of computer scientists believe that P≠NP. The result of this paper is that they cannot both be right: either P=NP and the markets are weakly efficient, or P≠NP and the markets are not weakly efficient.>>

Ok one more of the Funloving Luddite symbols for today then I really gotta quit (I caaaaan't)

I purchased a G7 15.

It's a 15.9 inch , which is larger than I've ever owned, but it's very easily user-serviceable and supports an M.2/NVMe SSD, a 2.5 inch SATA drive, and 2 RAM slots (up to 32GB).

Also it has an GTX 1060 Max-Q and fairly decent battery life!

Will report more once I install .

Also, is it possible to switch all follows for moved accounts? That seems like it would be pretty useful.

Is there an easier way to add people to lists than to click the list, click settings, search for them, and click add?

The search feature is rather anemic and I'm attempting to categorize all 250 of my follows.

My nephew has an ipad.

He asked his dad how to write games. His dad didn't know. His dad asked me how to write games on an iPad. I told him not to bother.

My nephew asked me how to learn to write games.

I gave him a raspberry pi and a copy of pico 8.

Now he writes computer games.

He couldn't do that on his iPad.

Wait, what. Windows 10 sends info on USB devices plugged in directly to Microsoft?

And it does that using pure HTTP?

You gotta be kidding me.


Question concerning #Peertube :

I want to take old movies that are currently available on and make a classic movie Peertube instance.

But I don’t want to seed from scratch.

Since already seeds these movies, can I add their tracker info to my peertube instance? Share the load with

(If there’s a better place to ask this question, than the public fediverse, let me know!”

Reclaiming RSS

“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”
