🎡 Hello insomnia my old friend 🎡

End of vacation tomorrow. I haven't even thought about all the PC's and laptops at work that need to be upgraded from Mate 19.3 to 20 soon. :oh_no: :oh_no_bubble:

β€œOh yeah it's my 5-years-in-the-Netherlands-anniversary this Saturday, but we don't have to make a big deal out of it.”

Narrator: Gina was absolutely going to make a big deal out of it.

I tried the almond flour today, do not recommend. It made them dense and they fell apart easier. Also forgot to say that instead of protein powder you can also throw in a 2nd spoon of flour with a half a tea spoon of vanilla extract.

Job requirements 

An interesting thing I've noticed is that job descriptions are becoming unrealistically broad. Things like "full stack devops engineer" or "SRE + user support." Cramming multiple roles into one position.

Today a recruiter reached out about a scrum master position where I'd also function as a devops engineer. That's not how scrum works, folks. :/ I get that organisations want to be "lean and mean" but a little realism would be nice. πŸ˜‚

Yall has anyone on the ever found and/or read the English translation of Alexsandr Dugin's β€œFoundations of Geopolitics: the Geopolitical Future of Russia?” I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.

It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:

We're happy to be here!

1 large banana or 2 small ones, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of whole wheat flour (or almond flour, haven't tried it yet), 1 small scoop of vanilla or banana protein powder, 1 table spoon of chia seeds, loads of cinnamon just buckets full, a bit of coconut oil in your pan and done.

The best part about being an adult is that when you crave (high protein) banana pancakes you can just make them. πŸ₯žπŸ₯žπŸ₯ž

Ok to be fair their desktop comes with 2 extra fans, and with a wireless keyboard and mouse, so for fun and giggles let's add another 350 euro's for extra fancy fans and a wireless mouse/keyboard combo that you can type with from the moon. That's €1850. But nah let's spend €8250 for the same πŸ˜‚

"It's not fair to compare your pc build with Apple's Macbook Pro 2019 laptop, you should compare it with their Mac Pro desktop pc."

Apparently, the FOSS community has problems with racism/sexism. Anybody heard more about this/could elaborate?
