  1. So, no. I do not have goddamned nginx figured out, and no, the Pleroma 2.0 launch has not made this any less goddamned infuriating.

  3. Like I said - I have no reason to believe I’ve got it other than this cold, which is also going around right now. No fever, no headaches, nothing. Just congestion.

    • @thismightbeauser But, the Carnegie and Rockefeller and all those families, they used to do public works and stuff. They may have been hoarding the wealth, but not damn *all* of it. Their flash contest was at least servicing the greater good as a side effect of the ostentation. This new crop seems more about raw, bigly yuge numbers, and hoarding, like a dragon (or a priapism). But, again, this is all coming around to perception. . . .

    • @scribus I mean, there's Bill Gates and whatnot. On the other hand you get people like this guy, who think it's an okay idea to keep making electric cars at a moderately high risk of illness to his employees with no one to buy them. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875471

    • @thismightbeauser @scribus That is indeed the case, a lot of rich people have middle class cars and discrete houses and do their best to keep people from knowing how rich they are, due to the general sentiment of "wealth equals evil"
      You can't blame them really, if the mob will hate you just for managing to make good decisions and earning your family big money. I'd probably do the same if I couldn't simply relocate to a fortified compound with a minefield around it. It makes no sense to feel empathy for a group that has none for you, for whom you'll always be the bad guy regardless of what you do or don't do, that openly talks about how good it'd be if you died.

      The ones that show off are the sociopaths, politicians and entertainment industry guys, who by default are crooks as that whole industry is built on crime and debauchery.

  4. IMO, the whole thing is a PR disaster waiting to happen, but that’s fine, I guess. The guy was put there to be the fall-guy when union negotiations broke down... then this happened.

    • @mrmattimation Jump on TOR and anonymously drop the scoop to either an intrepid young journalism major or a washed-out alcoholic local reporter and watch the lid kinda simmer and flop and ultimately probably the heat'll get turned down and nothing'll blow after all!!

        • @scribus We’re just kind of telling people we’re gonna card them but our interim President was really mad about having to change anything about the way we operate so we were explicitly told during a very angry conference call that it’s all just for show and we’re not supposed to actually turn anyone away.

            • As much as I am a varsity starter for Team Spelling, in this age of text-to-speech and tiny-ass screens (with even tinier, crappy soft keyboards), I think maybe we can stop acting like an individual is incapable of any thought whatsoever just because of a then/than or a to/too/two mixup.

                  • I can't even get into the store to find out if they're out of detergent. I really mean no ill towards the disabled, but "retarded" is feeling more and more like the only adequate term to describe the situation. Especially when considering the administration's delayed development of a response...
