It gets dumped on a lot but only for being unpopular. Every other living option is 10 years behind in terms of problems. (Remember when everyone had that hash collision vulnerability?)

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m
90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them
Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m
This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
A little 2018 personal technology retrospective:
I randomly decided to self-host a #BBS! This has spiraled into running www, gopher and gitea. It's only going to get worse.
I stopped denying my true identity as Amigan and returned to my roots with a classic #Amiga A1200 and a next-gen #AmigaOne X5000. I have the bare bones of a Mastodon client running on #AROS. I returned to C #programming for kicks.
I learned more about port and host scanning than I ever expected (thanks $daygig)! I captured a few flags, had my mind blown at DEFCON, and buy locks from the hardware store for fun.
I bought music on CD and mp3 again. I killed my twitter account; I ghosted gmail and switched email provider. I killed my google+ account. I dumped WhatsApp and convinced most everyone to follow (just 2 more to go). My music and documents from are slowly migrating from Google Play, Docs and Drive.
I learned to love systemd and so can you.
Fight the power!
Tech Loser. In a love-hate relationship with Perl. Also: C, *nix.
