nerds getting mad over a few open source projects finally replacing the master/slave terminology for processes is the most pathetic nerd shit imaginable. changing the terms affects nothing in terms of how the software runs. It literally changes nothing but creates a slightly more welcoming environment for non-white programmers.

It's incredibly sad and frustrating seeing these assholes vociferously defending something so completely unimportant.

ok, the spiders and I are going to start planning a podcast tentatively named

Space Imperialism: The Next Generation

it will be irregular as hell as we find spoons to do the research and writing, but it will hopefully be fun!

the first episode will be on TNG S2E9, "Measure of a Man", regarded as the first "truly great" episode of TNG (and let's be real probably all of star trek).

When I was a student a car ran over my only optical mouse (don't ask). I made this cobbled together mess from the pieces and used it for quite some time afterwards because I couldn't afford a new one at the time

At this point I like M:tG a lot better in theory than in practice

@baturkey It's art, so you get to decide. If you're cool, they're about getting high. If you're a square, they're about space.

🎵 I'm floating in the most peculiar way... 🎵

Are 70s band songs about space actually about space or are they about getting high?

So, interesting geeky thing here.

We have these Panasonic IP cameras. They work great, but have the MOST BIZARRE behavior out of the box. (thread)

Normally network devices use DHCP by default to get an IP address, right? Standard behavior and what most people expect. (thread)
