Kinda wanting to install my own lemmy and slowly build up my subs in the hopes to eventually replace my reddit experience. Because I really do enjoy reading my subs on various totally obscure topics

Have a good Wednesday, also known as Mittwoch, also known as Wodin's Day.
Have a London derrière to cheer you up.

Anyone with a web cam recommendation? Must be Linux friendly. My built in camera died a month or so ago and this ThinkPad x1c6 may be old but still works perfectly (sans camera) so I don't want to trade this old thing in just yet.

I remember once getting flak for sharing the German quip of "if there’s a Nazi at the table and 10 other people sitting there talking to him, you got a table with 11 Nazis."

I hope those critics look at Florida and other fashy states and realize that this is what happens when you tolerate fascism at any level.

Visiting Europe was cool and all but nothing beats returning home to Nicaragua, leaving the airport, only to have the 11pm heat & humidity sucker punch the wind right out of you.

Welcome home indeed.

I've been writing Go 95% of the time for the last couple of years.

I've got a py2 codebase for a pretty useful app I need to port to py3.

I've forgotten a lot of what that entails.

Time to dust off the upgrade manuals.

If this is true, that prime-time Trump infomercial was an even more shameful act of journalistic malpractice on CNN's part than was previously understood.

Allowing audience members to applaud - but not boo or express disapproval - doesn't report the story, it materially alters it. It creates the false impression that Trump and his odious policies and behavior are more popular than they are.


(HT @lauren)

Many audience members at CNN’s town hall with former President Donald Trump on Wednesday were “disgusted” and “bewildered” by the spectacle, but were told to be respectful and not to boo, according to a report.

“The floor manager came out ahead of time and said, Please do not boo, please be respectful. You were allowed to applaud,” claimed Republican political consultant Matthew Bartlett in an interview with Puck News senior political correspondent Tara Palmeri on Thursday.

Accidentally typed rm templates/* and quickly realized my error. A second of panic before hg revert -Ca brought me back to my senses.

(not to worry, I had no other pending changes that reverting would affect)

Moral being, I've got 25+ years using *nix, coding, etc. and still do stupid shit all the time. Use tools that will save you whenever feasible.

“Proposed Texas Law Wants to Make School Children 'Battlefield' Ready

In response to school shootings, a new bill in Texas would require public schools to install "bleeding stations" and train kids as young as third grade in trauma care.”

This is grotesque.

The United States of America is a war zone.

The children are hostages.

The terrorists are hiding behind the hostages.

The terrorists are the Republicans.

The NRA funds terrorism.

Only you can end this.

@tedu is it just me or are you and other honkers seeing this? Trying to import from the xzone seems to fail more often than not, but using the new search import option works for those that failed.

Currently in #Naples, #Italy. The local football team just needs 1 point to lock in their Serie A championship. They just tied the score (giving the the championship if the score stays the same). The city is MADNESS! Love it!

The new lounge in the San Salvador airport expansion is nicer, with better food, than most lounges in much larger, more "worldly" cities. Super impressed!

Smartphones using the Snapdragon 630 chip were found to call home to Qualcomm without the consent of the user, bypassing the whole operating system. Data includes unique hardware ID, current IP, country, your ISP, list of installed apps and other data.

It is send unencrypted and gets combined with data broker profiles.

As usual, big IT companies don't give a flying fart about any laws, their customers or ethics in general. Who would've guessed. 😔 #privacy #security

In case you were unaware, RT, aka Russia Today, is the propaganda arm of Putin’s authoritarian government. They appear to have an Instance on Mastodon. I’ve blocked them. You may want to share this information and block them too.

My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell ordered to pay $5M for the Prove Mike Wrong challenge. Evidence provided was just random numbers and letters haha. Apparently team Lindell claimed it was the capture of the traffic for THE ENTIRE INTERNET during a set period hahha.

@rysiek Hey at least Lisbon and Porto are great spots! I really really liked Lisbon when I went.

Valencia is fantastic but mainly going again to visit my daughter who lives there now.

Naples; I refuse to visit this part of Europe and not head to Naples. My favorite city in Italy and one of my favorite cities period.Plus, pizza for lunch & dinner.

Palermo I've never been to so excited for a new spot to explore.

Every time I read the US news I reaffirm that moving to the second poorest country in the western hemisphere (aka, the third world) was the best decision I could have made, safety wise at least.

Anyone I know in Valencia (Spain), Naples (Italy) or Palermo (Sicily)? If so, I'll be heading out there in the coming weeks and we should get a beer or something.

NPR's operating budget is $300 M, and 1%, or $3 M is funded by federal subsidies

The LA Times calculates the federal subsidies Musk's companies have received at $4.9 B.

Let's be generous and say Musk received those subsidies over a 10 year period, while NPR would have received ~$30 M in subsidies.

4.9 B / 30 M = Musk received 163x what NPR has from "the state."

Who is state funded then?

Hey #freebsd fedi, question - is it a good idea to jump from 12.2 to 13.2. I've got a few non-critical systems still running 12.2 and I'd like to avoid updating multiple times.

Any hints?

@KenRos He's saying if the Galaxy DON'T make the playoffs, he'll resign (which was always the plan, BS).

Of course he's thinking we're stupid because the playoff format changes this season, making it a lot more likely the Galaxy make the playoffs because basically only 2 teams per conference won't make it (MLS is so stupid).

The supporter groups aren't buying it. Stay strong and boycott those clowns until #KleinOUT

Ugh, sloppy play led to the Real Madrid goal but Chelsea is holding their own. Had some chances and also got a bit lucky a few times.

Hope they clean it up the second half! Come you blues!

Holy damn this is wild

“I hacked into a @Bing CMS that allowed me to alter search results and take over millions of Office365 accounts.

How did I do it? Well, it all started with a simple click in Azure… 👀
