"Hey Jookia, when's the next DOS programming stream?"
For the past month I've been reading schematics, reference manuals, driver code, Git histories, and writing kernel patches.
A DOS stream is overdue, but before that happens I need to write something that doesn't require constantly rebooting my development machine.
@jookia Perhaps he has revived the tradition of the prime minister returning to the sea. We can hope.
My brother just told me that our prime minister (aka coal shill) Scott Morrison hasn't been heard from in days and Twitter is blowing up about it, but I can't find anything in the news.
Can someone that uses Twitter please confirm/deny this for me before I get my hopes up he fell down a coal mine and now has to survive off just coal and asbestos shavings?
@Shawshank One of my favourite pieces on this subject, by Hossein Derakshan. He was jailed as a political prisoner in Iran. When he was freed six years later, the world and the web had changed beyond recognition.
+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.
It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.
But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...
... you felt free.
@quietbecoming Getting food destined for the trash is great because it's mostly still good, and you don't need to be able to afford to look "presentable" since they don't care about motive/appearance as long as you save them some trash bags. And I saw a lot of luxury cars at the second chance bread store when the family had to go there. Nobody's judging there.
Also: outlet stores. You can get top quality appliances (chest freezer!) for cheap b/c of minor dents/scratches/chips.
So I work at a hotel that serves free breakfast and dinners (for guests*), though the dinners are only mon-thu.
If you're ever looking for a free meal, I'd recommend checking out if there are hotels near you that do the same. I'm going to reply with a few tips to keep in mind in case you're nervous/unsure how to pass as a guest.
1. Dressing how you would if you just woke up is fine. 100% normal. Some people get ready before breakfast, but tons don't.
I disagree. We should have them here and corporates as well. We need them confronted in an environment that they cannot influence through money and power.
Blocking the officials shows lack of confidence. We just need to block their entourage of hate mongers and fascists. And then surround and confront them.
