@lizardsquid eternity was a single moment where i could sit and think for as long as i wanted and would only move on once i decided to. i sat there for a trillion years exploring a derelict spaceship, and i was deeply lonely, but i never felt hunger or pain. after all the time i wanted was put into that single moment, i woke up, in my bed, terrified of how little time i had left
@cypnk @eduardomorais a while ago, i saw someone making the point (maybe on here, maybe elsewhere) that my age cohort (roughly: born in late 70s - mid 80s, basically aware of the world pre-internet / pre-mobile-device) might have experienced peak technical literacy in the general population, and it's all downhill from here.
it really resonated, and i haven't encountered any evidence to the contrary.

What was the speed of response? How does it compare to previous assumptions and models? What could be done differently to save more people in the event of a real attack?
No politician would order a “this is not a drill” drill and panic an entire state, beyond the cruelty it’s also really dangerous. However since it happened, this is an information goldmine that should be used and studied.
There's no way no one got fired for this

Of course, I'm going to cheat. I'll install DOS2SSH and DOSVNC ( https://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/nino/dosvnc.html ) so that I can keep accessing my application server.
Beyond that, I'll look for an Email program. I'll want some kind of live chat program (there are a few, but I haven't audited any of them in 10 years).
From there, I'll get down to business building a backup system (around next cloud.)
I just realized that intellectual property is probably a big contributor to environmental degradation.
If environmentally friendly technology was open-source, developing countries would have access to it and it would make its use cheaper even in developed countries.
I'd like to put together an ultra-cheap raspberry #pi portable, self-contained system. Huge bonus if I can #solar power it, but not required. System needs a display & keyboard input. Needs wifi. I was eyeing up the pi zero w and solar systems, but there's too much noise out there. Anyone got experience with these?

He hadn’t expected the hooves; the searing, bone-breaking pain of toes, heel, and arch bending themselves all into hard, cloven, three-toed lumps. Next to the crippling agony of the feet, the horns curling out of his skull were nothing.
He’d asked to be a god. He hadn’t specified which one.
