There is no reason to retweet this picture of this Amiga. I just want to live in a world where an image of the greatest computer ever made can reach 3248 retweets. Maybe I'm just dreaming. #Amiga

Cornfield 2.0, now with basic irrigation! It's not totally how I want it yet but it'll do for now until I pick up some more hose and connectors. At least I can get the corn seedlings down and not worry about the ground drying out on a hot day.

Now to finish digging it up and get some compost down.

mfw very smart people try to do a good job but then get plagued by the realization the world is artificially limited by a group of idiots

While I’m here, does anyone want to save these barely-used WRT54GL routers from e-waste? They don’t have enough flash for OpenWrt these days.

how fucking embarrassing is it to hear a heartfelt plead from one of your dude acquaintances and respond with "oh, geez, buddy, they don't even let me- I mean, that really sucks."

"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre."

Hot take about FOSS 

It bothers me when people say "software isn't Free unless it's usable, intuitive, and works for me". Software can be free but not useful. Purity of an ideological standard provides a reference for setting these principles selectively as they make sense in a "real world" context.

Not every software program is going to be perfect. Writing software is hard. Having something shitty and Free is valuable in its own right, just maybe not valuable to you personally
