Okay, because of the decentralized nature of the social media platforms I'm choosing to use these days, I've encountered a greater diversity of opinions, and that's a good thing.

That said, I need to make one thing perfectly clear once and for all: you do not have a "right" to discriminate against others. This does *not* constitute persecution.

Yes, you *do* have a right to express your opinions, but this does not grant you immunity from criticism.

@jlamothe Oh LCARS.

The computer of the future we never got.

Honestly I'd love those gaudy pastels and swhoopy, thick UI lines to be more of a thing.

Right now it feels like everything is either sharp, clean edges in a Metro style or rounded and kinda fluffy.

I mean LCARS was dark mode default too! It had everything right!

Got some new GNDN decals because I'm a nerd. This is now the lid of my laptop. 🖖


So it looks like Amazon has its tentacles ready to take over Rust.

The company is slowly adding its own members to the Rust team in an attempt to leverage governance. Amazon employees are badmouthing the original Rust team, and articles are being released to manufacture consent for Rust being an Amazon project.

Capital tryna take away my gay crab language.

If you allow a corporation to filter and manage reality for the world’s population, you should expect a VIP section.

Hmm... Not exactly what I was looking for, but LD_PRELOAD looks like it might do the trick for my purposes.

It seems the tool I'm looking for doesn't exist. I may have to build it, despite requiring some deep hackery. Is there some way that I can write some program that will call another program (with arguments) except instead of actually running the system calls will allow me to inspect/modify the memory/registers before passing them on to the OS?

Dear lazy web:

Does there exist a /#Linux utility that allows you to call another executable binary and redirect its listen requests on a given TCP port to a specified UNIX socket instead?

Haven't been making videos lately. Work's kept me too busy. I set up an server a while ago with no idea what I'd use it for. I've been mulling over the idea of building a server framework in and am considering live streaming the work I do on it. No set schedule at this point.

Just discovered that in it is inadvisable to hang around in a shop too long when you have lycanthropy, otherwise you risk "selling" your newly acquired mithril armour for a pittance when it falls off of you.

In Soviet Yendor, shops steal from you.

TIL we can't run our microwave and coffee machine at the same time.

Side note: it's remarkably difficult to find somewhere that sells fuses in the middle of the night.

The fact that someone though this sign was a solution to a problem is beyond me...

My nephew loves making maps, and my mom somehow got him really into Colassal Cave Adventure, so I offered that if he makes a map like the one he made of Adventure, I'll make it a game

I am so excited
