So this is apparently a real message sent by someone who was also the author of Skyrim Devourment, which is a vore mod for Skyrim with hard coded killswitches to make the save corrupt itself if you played it with a male character. @OCRbot
A note sent via Furaffinity. OCRbot has been asked to transcribe

Unix is to programming as glue is to origami

The Nintendo Switch is setup to cost a lot of money and the store was laid out by someone who has never seen a video game, I am convinced of both things

This seems like a confusing way to present the data. It's only about 1/3 of conservative voters that think COVID-19 is overblown, (which is still a very big problem!!!) but the graph makes it look like it's 2/3 when it's not.

"mom can we buy a sound mixer?"

"no we have sound mixer at home"

sound mixer at home:

This is only the second most embarrassing example I’ve seen of physicists trying to use their own methods to solve coronavirus. (I’m not sharing the other one.)

I feel like I shouldn't call the ongoing government benefits for the pandemic "ronabux"
I didn’t receive their reply ☹️
Now I received it but it isn't the parent of your reply...


“I’ve switched the labels on all of my roommate’s spices.”

“Have they discovered what you’ve done yet?”

“No… but trust me: that thyme is cumin.”

Becky is playing a JRPG and keeps complaining about robbing these chests she finds
haha, I can relate! I always found it very strange that in JRPGs you go into people's houses and take the stuff you want xD

this is one of those details that a post-apocalyptic video games includes so you can see how invested they were in worldbuilding

I fucking hate Docker and the generation of shitty "engineers" that were raised on it. Docker's answer to "it works on my machine" is to ship the fucking dev's machine straight into prod. It's the most reprehensible, garbage idea to come out of the already fucked "devops" culture. Then they put _thousands_ of knobs on it so that everyone can break it in their own special way, revealing their "infrastructure" for the pile of popsickle sticks and glue it was always made out of. They spend the weekend fixing it and the CEO thinks their engineering team is working really hard while the ashes of their burning VC money gently settle in a small pile at their feet. Docker is the opposite of engineering.

baby "dat"
dad "which is your favourite data storage format for tapes? LTO or DAT"
baby "DAT!"
me "Is that the right one?"
dad "LTO is better, but it just means he's just a little retro computing nerd"

People who are stuck at home WITHOUT kids: Is it as nice as it sounds?

And to all developers out there:
Stop using facebook sdk and other stupid stuff. Take care of your users!

Wellll I accidentally locked myself out of my apartment again today while doing chores. Worse yet, I was able to pick the lock in about 15 seconds with minimal effort, and I'm not even really into lock picking. Have a feeling I'll be talking to my landlord soon.

Y'know... I see the statement "The web is unusable without Javascript" bandied about a *lot*, and... no, no it isn't.
I often have to enable 3rd-party **CSS** to make a site look presentable, but JS? Not so much.

There's usually the "Plox enabuw Jawascwipt uwu" messagebar, but that's not "unusable."

Yes, MacOS does weird crap, and sometimes keeps your cursor context even if your screen is locked. Meaning all the admins at the job I worked where we all used MacOS managed to type their password into a chat window
osx security nerds: is this a thing? you type creds into login prompt, and it transmits those creds to whatever app is in focus past the login screen (in this case, chrome in a slack tab?)

Yeah - these deals are the literal best

I bought a "beefed-up" Lenovo X201 on eBay (circa 2010) and it arrives tomorrow! For only $129, I'm getting 8GB RAM, Core i5 2.67GHz, 120GB SSD, and extended battery. I love these laptops! Physical WiFi switch, Think light, lid latch, and keyboard clit! FreeBSD, it will be 🥰


The "don't cross the picket line" thing, where people say not to buy from companies that are on strike makes little sense to me.

You need the owners to be forced to give refunds because they don't have workers, not for them to just see a dip in revenue they blame on the workers

Why did we all settle on the worst video conferencing software?

One of the things I'm thinking about is how much I can make my NPCs different by having them treat the Seattle Barrens as if they are in different genres

The different power levels, skills, and abilities allow a really different way of interacting, and give different feelings

Remember how the system reacted and acted during this pandemic.

First, we need to get through this.

After its over, we need to change how things work.
I'm not familiar with Tinker, so I might be having some misunderstanding here ^^;

Who are they?
Tinker is a fairly famous social engineer and physical pentester, also famously will post life updates with inconsistent photos that imply things about themselves that contradict

But mostly, I believe they are calling for collective action, either voting or revolution, but I think a little more on the revolution side

The hardest part of trying to write characters in Shadowrun is keeping the different characters level of slang consistent with themselves, and making sure that everyone uses slang that they would.

As a sysadmin I am allergic to doing things, and not making things to do things

As infosec, I am constantly afraid of doing things and auditing the things that do things

Why is it that Kubernetes doesn't have a first class support for sending logs out via syslog?

Even docker wasn't stupid enough to not have this obvious feature

this is why software engineering isn't actually engineering imo

Please stop patting my do-next-to-nothing prime minister on the back? Please? Can Americans please stop doing that? Vulnerable Canadians suffer when you do that.

not many gaming comics will make it into the library of congress, but ctrl+alt+del would be a loss

Made bread with a new yeast starter because I couldn't buy yeast
Crumb looks good so encouraged


Can someone out there show me a PWA that's actually as good or better than a native app? This is a unicorn that nobody can prove exists.


"I'm not afraid to get Corona" is fake punk.
"I'm gonna protect my community" is real punk.


That's the first thing to make me nervous

Waffle House closes 365 locations across the U.S.

Last night my PCs *defeated the faery queen*. It has been like 9 months? or so of prep to get here - and whoa.
The PC who was prophesied to defeat her was a wild Sorcerer (using Net Libram of Wild Magic). He struck her and "The target cannot be remembered by new people they meet"
The Queen of Faery, stripped of her titles with the death of the Thrice Great Crown, stripped of her claim to the world of Nonia by an upstart wild mage, has her ability to make a new title snatched from her by said mage. She cannot rise again, and her pattern dissolves.
It all came down to *a lot* of confidence from the players that the prophesy was true, and also, a perfect 1d10000 roll. *This* is why I love dice, by being an active agent at the table, they build amazing moments.

In a few months there will be a beer shortage, followed by a whisky shortage in 10 years

Imagine being able to complain because whisky is expensive because of the great pandemic of '20
Gotta admit, ought 5 woulda been better for years for there to be a whisky shortage because of

If doctors named viruses the way security people name malware, this would be called NotSARS.

This one's a real head-scratcher.
