It's been a busy past few months, so hello again, Fediverse!
I did finally figure out though the issue I've been having with my home server. After reboots it'd be unable to connect to the network despite finding no issues with the SD card. Finally realized that the lack of logs meant that the boot process never completes. The issue? Lines in fstab for HDDs that weren't connected. Removed them and no more issues!
Been trying out the Pulse keycaps that finally arrived this past weekend. I was so used to XDA and DSA profiles that SA is kinda awkward to use. Doesn't help that I didn't opt for the actual ortholinear modifiers (because I wanted symbols to go along with the rams) so the lower row isn't flatter like they should be.

Fuck my district's rep.
I had hope for Beto despite the slim chances.
I hate this state a lot of times, and this is definitely one of those times. Thank fuck I'm not from here.
Also one more fuck Cruz while I'm here, spineless fuckbag he is.

Watching us lose 2-0 to fucking Red Star in the Champions League is a great way to mentally prepare yourself for if Cruz wins Texas over Beto.
That being said, go vote, Americans! But if you're voting for those in a party of hate, kindly stay home please and thank you. That'd be great.
Feel like I need alcohol for today...

Tbh, should've known something bad was bound to happen soon. September was the first month where we weren't living paycheck to paycheck for the most part, so that couldn't have lasted long of course. Just how it all works.

I think October 30th is a cursed day for us.
Today last year I was fired for bullshit reasons from my job I was already looking to quit because of how awful it and the people there were (not to mention a sexual assaulter for a CEO).
Today this year my wife just told me she was let go from her job because of cuts despite their alleged desire to continue hiring due to business. The attorneys were probably not lining their pockets enough so they let multiple people go.
Shoutout to #Debian for giving the world an amazing non-corporate community distro.

Trump says that if they had weapons in synagogue things would have been different and its a debate that will always be had but the outcome would have been better...
IF WE DIDN'T HAVE ANTISEMITISM AND RACISM THEN WE WOULDN'T HAVE SHOOTINGS WHICH WOULD BE THE ONLY HOPEFUL 'OUTCOME'

Holy Crap, GNU now has basically the worst possible CoC that could be written: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/info-gnu/2018-10/msg00001.html
It's just a giant pile of dog-whistles and put-downs of women, PoC, and other minority groups. JFC.
Just sent over the executable for my #Python script for someone other than me to use!
It's not that complex so I won't have to worry about bugs in it (it just asks for some parameters before using #pandas to pull the SQL query and doing some formatting before outputting it into Excel), but I just hope that PyInstaller worked correctly and there won't be any issues when it packaged it.
@pinguino I thought the "we put an X in your X" meme was well and truly dead by this point...
White enough to fit into a gentrified neighborhood, Hispanic enough to still feel out of place.
