People whose first initial interaction with me, is to pick a fight over my personal preference in the whole GNU/Linux naming controversy will be blocked.

I don't care which side of this fence you come down on. But I ask for the same lack of care about my usage from others.

Tim Cook [Member of Trump's American Workforce Policy Advisory Board; and host to Paul Ryan fundraisers] Says His Era Has Failed by Over-Debating Climate Change

Saw a warning about Nazis planning to show up at a Pride event in a city the same name as ours in another state. Their pride day isnt too far off from ours either. Scared me for a moment. Disturbs me still. That's the point I guess.

If we table the question on what it even means to say things like " has lost" (Which is an interesting philisophical question in it's own right.) but just accept it as fact; it then begs severally more interesting questions.

What does that make it's supporters? Are we soldiers trapped behind enemy lines now, engaged in a guerrilla campaign?

And what does that frame of mind mean for the strategies we ought to take as a community?

The other week I read some comments on the where people had said the sentence fragment: " had lost."

It has been going around and around in my head ever since.

I think it's an interesting concept. Not because of it's the most depressing sense; but what context that brings to the supporters.

Contemplating lower energy home server options again.

I really dig the stuff. However support for the MediaTek MIPS SoC doesn't look all that great at first glance.

Id have to switch the home server to then. I like Debian. But I might like all my servers to match.

Anyone running non NAS software on the ? How does it handle stuff like or Streama?

I've been waiting for it for a few years. But it looks like the new edition of the Blue Planet is finally happening.

@dawnpaladin Jeff Bezos is NOT #solarpunk and neither are his plans to abandon Earth and the mass of humanity so that he can live in an elite space community.

If you like the vibes of some futuristic art, that's fine, but don't you dare fucking call the plans for consuming the Earth and running away from the mess 'solarpunk.'

Summer flex schedule had messed with my morning routine for a few weeks. I've been coming into work early every morning so I can have a short day on Friday. I've been letting it cannibalize my morning walk till now.

Felt good to make time for it, despite being out the door even earlier.

Woke up from sleeping in with a start today. Dream I had suddenly turned left and was full of disturbing imagery.

Can't decide if it was caused by too many pen and paper RPGs or too many philosophy classes knocking around my Grey matter.

♲ Behind millions of successful men is an abortion they don’t regret getting with their partner. I urge men to go beyond solidarity and talk about how they’ve personally benefited from abortion rights too. Not because it’s the right thing you to do, because it’s true!

Past couple of days have left me in something of a mood.

Need to play some videogames. Read some of "The Tao is Silent" and try to find some balance.

Trans acceptance is not political. Trans acceptance is a basic demonstration of human rights. If you complain that trans acceptance advocacy is political, you are what is commonly referred to as an asshole.

Anyone out their play with any? I went down a rabbit hole last night, and I kinda wanna play with it now. Im largely ignorant of the whole scene though.
