Lately, it feels like concern about "spoilers" has hit a fever pitch. I've seen people threaten to end friendships over spoilers. It's wild.

Here's the thing: good storytelling does not depend upon shock twists to be emotionally engaging or intellectually compelling.


The thing I want most this year is for MongoDB to stop helping


After playing it for a while, I am fairly certain Stardew Valley is just boneless Factorio


Heres an avengers spoiler for you; this shit fuckin sucked

Okay I’ll do it, but only under any circumstances. And the last line will be “His name was John Gnarrk. He lived at Jupiter Towers.”


I need to get this off my chest, can @DCComics give @ttwasteland_ a book called The Fall Of Gnark chronicling how his death happened?

Just say it's set pre-Crisis and let Hub do anything he wants

Call @virginmedia on a number on their site. Get told that their policy is to always perform the security challenge, even if they're the ones who called. They have no mechanism for the person receiving the call to verify that it's actually @virginmedia calling.


Holy crap - is there any redeeming feature of journalctl - regardless of the failings of journald in general?
@silverwizard That's about it I think. Not super amazing, not indispensable, but I find it slightly neat.

Yeah - but I often want to have unified logs not by unit type, want to be able to view multiple boots at once without pain, want to default to storing logs, want to default to rotating safely, want to store logs based on time by default, want to be able to send different log levels to different places, want to quickly follow these searches, and so on


I realized last night that every time I've gone to the hospital this year I've eaten Tim Hortons during the trip, and that's the most uniquely Canadian thing about me

I do not care what their issue is. I'm sure they work for grifters of some stripe but maybe not. I've never spoken to them. The point is that I keep having to decline. Their eyes and their fake smiles lock on to me, and then I am forced to say no.

i do not wish to live a life of saying no. i do not LIKE saying no. i do not ENJOY saying no. it is not a NEUTRAL activity for me. i do not want to be hounded, harassed, fucking followed, and the fucking brands are trying to wear us down so that we don't have that reaction.

@h3artbl33d @mischapeters @dimpase @bflueckiger @romanzolotarev @taekicks Systemd should be burned with hellfire. Systemd is the windowsfication of linux. Systemd is inherently insecure and can not be fixed. Systemd is what happens when nonunix people get a say about architecture. If you like systemd you don’t understand Unix. Systemd is buttfumble.



So much of my time on the Ops AND Security side of my jobs means removing tools like these to increase performance and decrease points of failure

Oh Look, @PalantirTech investors should be worried.

If I was Palantir, I'd cut out the ICE contract. If they don't, they're the Dow Chemical of our generation and it's gonna cost them billions over the long term.

Kudos to @RobBonta for driving this.

@reckless I’d like paid podcasts not to be confined to a specific app (doable with custom RSS feeds, though there is leakage) and for app-specific audio to not be called “podcasts”

Seems increasingly like the future of podcasts looks like the future of TV: dozens of different paid-streaming services with different, fragmented catalogs battling it out for your time.


My fears as a parent for my child coming out to me is:
How do I help them navigate their friends
How do I fight their teachers who are intolerant
How do I let them legally protect and recognize themselves

Obviously, loving the child no matter what also is important, but... gah
If you have kids, you need to be prepared for the possibility that they will come out to you.

And you need to do whatever the fuck it is you need to do to get to a place where your immediate reaction is "I love you"
All those questions are legitimate concerns, but first, "I love you".

Yeah, I kinda felt that way after saying it
I dunno, a grew up in an area that's pretty blah even to this day, so I worry about it a lot


Especially in the area of computer crime, where it's easy as fuck to make a crime happen

The computer equivalent of shoplifting will get you decades

Breaking the law is not the worst thing that you can do.

Have you ever worked in InfoSec for a company who either engaged in or whose business model was around gross ethics violations?

How many people did you hurt by faciliating that business?

@taekicks @romanzolotarev Maybe it’s because in BSD existing tools are used and improved instead of new tools being created every single time?
