@natecull I'm annoyed that, as far as I know, we haven't even tried a rotating space station. Surely that would be an important step?


Great thread from @AnandWrites@twitter.com :
A basic confusion has wrought so much destruction in American life.

A lot of venture capitalists tricked themselves, and then others, into thinking that they are thinkers.


Poor man's low pass filter - request a sample rate incapable of reproducing the cutoff frequency.

@vidak Just think how big (and hot) it would be with tubes!

Fun with my kid who is learning Hot Cross Buns on the recorder.

Also, audio on Mastodon is newish and I haven't tried it out! Is Masto the new SoundCloud?

@sentientfinger o, toki! mi li toki tawa sina. ni li pona. sina kepeken ilo IRC anu seme?

I still love but I don't really do anymore, though I still sorta like it. It's a lot of work, I agree. (except for Toki Pona :D)

@fraggle I guess I just wasted a bunch of time, huh.

@fraggle yeah, a lot of people have made stabs at it. There was one I saw that imports Steam ratings.

You might find, as I did, that if you bought itch.io/b/520/bundle-for-racia (there's still 5 hours left! ), that their UI is totally inadequate to handle the bundle.

This is my attempt to sort through them all - feel free to make a copy: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d

Good management is an awesome thing to see in action. It's like multithreaded programming except each thread has *feelings*.

I find this mythical past of non-political spaces to be hilarious and would like to subscribe to your comedy routine.

When people talk about "politics," they are usually referring to the controversial bits, not the 90% dull regulation and process that makes a country run.

People tend to assume broad agreement on what is or isn't controversial, though.

If you read only one thing on the today, read this thread by my friend and colleague Chris.

Chris was there. He saw with his own eyes as the @BostonPolice@twitter.com were the ones who INITIATED the violence in at least a section of the protests on Sunday night. :(

I saw dozens of cops at the event yesterday. Cops on motorcycles, who stood stoicly as Black protesters screamed "fuck the police". Cops holding traffic at intersections. There was no violence in those cases.

The violence started when the cops *drove vehicles through crowds*.

I just installed linux on my , and the difference is phenomenal. This is now a worthwhile daily driver.

It was previously using the original hacked up Debian maintained by a volunteer. I am really grateful to mrfixit2001 for their efforts, but I'm also happy to have hardware support in the official kernel too.

I had to do some minor hackery to get the upgrade image to work, though. Probably because I installed it on a 4gb sdcard.

@zenhack @cwebber there's a lisp-javascript called parenscript that's fairly mature. I've used it in some hobby projects and it works well.


just gave a very "Reichstag fire" speech. The military is being deployed on American soil to "fight terrorism." Antifa specifically called out as domestic terrorists.

Zero mention of police brutality or systematic oppression. Nothing about how we got here.

Hopes for an election at the end of the year are dwindling.
