Everyone with RSS links to their sites/blogs send then to me. I have broken down and installed a feed reader on my phone... I was trying to keep everything on my desktop PC, but it isn't sufficient when I'm at work and bored....
Elon Musk is awesome.
Defending Google again (Youtube) Show more
So it appears Youtube wanting to get paid for hosting peoples' video content is exploitation now?
People are so used to getting things for free, they think they're entitled. Reality check time!
Yeah, yeah, Google is evil, blah blah fucking blah. Sure they could have done it differently, I'm sure random Internet complainers know the business details way better than the YT staff. Obviously.
So by all means, host it yourself - and pay the bandwidth bills. Meh.
When I get back from vacation, I have a bunch of articles to write for https://h4ck3r9.com
One I have been churning in my noggin is the future of the internet. #Federation is revolutionary. What if all of the federated services worked together? I could easily see a federated web being the future of the internet. Or perhaps the web splits into 2 parts, the commercial web of Google and Facebook, and the open source federated web. These are the electric sheep of my dreams.
.@Blender's videos on #YouTube have now come back, but they are also being told by Google/YT that they HAVE to monetise them. #Blender are considering refusing, which presumably would mean the videos being taken down again:

I guess I couldn't just write about Quilter 1.6.0, could I? I've went and wrote a new shiny app, a PDF viewer. Meet Aesop, I'm sure it'll accompany your PDF reading needs for when you just want to read PDFs or hot reload that LaTeX file you're typing without any of that fussing on configurations.

This is a really interesting set of articles about 'Unix as an IDE'
if you ever find yourself upset with the "current generation's" slang of saying "feels" or "mood" too much just remember the 19th century had this
Awesome restaurant in the center of one of America's former industrial towns!
Travelling around Indiana to see the wife's family. I walk into a local coffee shop and what do I see? Intelligentsia Coffee... I haven't had that high of quality coffee in almost 10 years... So I bought some and I bought a mug! How awesome! Vacation days rock!
Which thinkpad should I get... I want to keep it under 100$ US, but there are so many I don't know which one. I don't want a tablet laptop... Just a plain laptop. X1 carbon looks nice, but they are all over my budget.

For this Father's Day:
He is a preacher with a keen and cutting approach to his own philosophy on life. He relies on Christian teachings for a basis, he is still a pragmatist. He taught me to think freely without inhibition to the use of reason. Reason is king in his world. He taught me practical life skills and he encouraged my individuality in a way no one else has. He taught me compassion and seeing the other side of the coin.
