@info A real time commentary on the current state of @JoshMurray

So it looks like the deal with Red Lobster is that a shrimp company took control, made themselves the exclusive vendor, and made them sell so much shrimp at a discount that it drove them into bankruptcy.

Well, I guess that escalated fast...
Sometimes you wonder what took you so long to think of it.

I'm horribly untidy by nature, so anytime I can give myself a specific and convenient place for something to 'live' it always seems to make things a little bit better

Walked into the geekcave to what I thought was the UPS complaining wondering WTF was going on.

No. Cat jumping up and down on keyboard and they'd managed to exhaust the allowable number of characters in the LMDE login screen.

Did grown up stuff today and paid for a gap in my national insurance record.

How complicated have they made it to pay for missing NI?!?

Call this number and we’ll give you a secret code. Then speak to the elf behind the red door and recite the code backwards. He will give you a horse. Get the horse to stamp on the floor the number of pounds we told you to pay, but do not let it round the amount. You must sing the number of pence in old Norse. Check back in 8 weeks to see if the magic worked…

Plinky 1.0.9 is now available in the App Store with a lil feature and a fix.

There was an occasional crash that would occur on the iPad and Mac when trying to create a new Folder or Tag — it was a surprisingly subtle accessibility bug.

More excitingly developers and automators can now retrieve their Plinky ID handily by using the x-callback-url scheme. It's a very seamless process that also protects user privacy, you can learn more about it here.

@jessamyn I wonder if something like Linktree could be (mis)used to do something similar to Internet Buttons? 🤔

we need one of those liquid volume measurement devices that smart water bottles use but for the #urethra

It's leftists like Hannah Gais who are so far out of touch with reality.

There was no "finding". The "imagery/references" about Reich were are right there in the open. Also, this is what The Orange Goon's staffers and advisors are pushing. These people are the ones who could very well be in the White House and executive branch pushing their agenda.

A lot of the left need to get their collective head out of their ass.

"Moral culpability". Sure.

@mdales It wouldn't be MakeFest without you dude. Look forward to seeing you again 😀

@3dprinting #3dprinting, I have a crtpuch and when I press the button to home the nozzle, the nozzle goes too far down and crashes into my build surface. I’ve tried adjusting the probe offset up and down though nothing seemed to change, any help?

@Floppy @pikesley it’s not on Android, unfortunately. The author has said he isn’t planning an Android version.

@mw1cgg @info Can someone build a MrJoshua status API?

We've created a Matrix room to chat about HackerBoards, single board computers, life, and the universe in general. Will you join us? :linux: 👀

what was the last compliment u received ?
I think @HerGayRoommate told me I was hot yesterday? Or possibly when another friend told me I was hot and then gave me some serious 🥺 face... or the other time.

People call me hot a lot is what I'm saying.

@JoshMurray @info Don't even need an API to return 200, 404, 410, 417, 427 or 451. I doubt we'll need 413 and I hope you keep away from people that would turn you 418.

It really sucks that we can't trust tech companies because something like the Microsoft AI recall feature is something I'd otherwise actually want lmao

I mean, not at all as described. They have everything they need to fully introspect most application gui controls but instead they're doing screenshots because because they've got a hammer and by god they'll turn everything into a nail if they have to

Charles Babbage's Analytic Engine was never fully designed because he had to keep tinkering with the Difference Engine (a more limited version) which he could never finish (nowadays several computer history museums have working models from his original specs) because the printer would never work properly. We commemorate this early milestone in computing today by having our printers never work also.

I went to the aquarium today and there was a guy in a wetsuit pushing a penguin around on a box, back and forth through the water

someone asked why and he says, "yeah, she kinda just really likes riding on the box"

I'm still not over it y'all

Renewed calls for funding to @ThePSF now that they've covered the huge impacts it makes. #PyConUS

Okay, when exactly did we accept that the concept ’operating system’ should include things like web browsers, ads, or capturing everything I do for neural network processing?

I’d be happy if all they did was close to what I was taught on the operating systems course in the university. Provide means for input and output, handle storage, make it possible to run programs, things like that.

Everything else is somethig else than an OS. ’Revenue platform’ could be close to what it is.

Non-Binary Fabric Pins are now up in the shop! 🏳️‍🌈 It's easy to find binary and they/them pronoun pins in the wild, but when I had difficulty finding Any/All pins, I decided to take matters into my own hands. 📌

@GossiTheDog it’s like they got a focus group of cybercriminals together when making this

OK #Linux community, listen up.

MS have done it again and people are looking for a way out.

DON'T TREAT NEWBIES LIKE SHIT.

DON'T ATTACK PEOPLE FOR ASKING QUESTIONS.

DON'T ATTACK PEOPLE FOR HAVING PROBLEMS.

DON'T TELL PEOPLE TO "GOOGLE IT" WHEN THEY COULDN'T POSSIBLY KNOW WHAT TO SEARCH FOR, OR HOW TO INTERPRET THE RESULTS THEY'D FIND.

DON'T BE A DICK.

suckless would love my malloc implementation
- slow
- not particularly good
- you need to configure it. through a header file

#WindowsRecall

Microsoft is ABSOLUTELY going to sell Recall as a way to spy on employees... likely through tiers (tied to your "e5 or above" licensing.. The MORE you pay.. the more granular your access to spying)

The same will likely be true for selling the right to spy on students who use campus computers (being tied to academic institution licensing)
