  1. "BUT I do know that the whole instance is making my life harder" Yeah, like how it's hard being exiled from your family Christmas party, because your depressed, transphobic relative is going to be there, and everyone is worried that your mere presence will push him over the edge?

  2. Someone told me to watch https://youtu.be/cZYNADOHhVY

    Which is an animated story of a kingdom desperately needing to beat a dragon. The story is an obvious euphamism.

    Just do not read the first YouTube comment. Though this might be a poor man's attempt at reverse psychology warfare, or maybe not.

    Regardless, go see that story, it is about 13 minutes long.

  3. Adding “obstruction of Congress” to the list of impeachment articles was a smart move on paper because it’s way easier to say “okay, yeah, he did that even if he didn’t do the other stuff”, and I’m betting if any GOP Senators vote to convict it’ll be on that charge - won’t be enough of ‘em, though. not soliciting opinions

  9. What is going on in California ? I know little to nothing about the electricity infrastructure but aparently it is blacking out WAY too much.

    Does it have anything to do with them not using the superior 230V format ?

  10. TIL: You can move the subtitle in a YouTube video. This would have been especially helpful for those videos that have captions right in the default place the subtitles appear.

    • Yes, sir, you and your one child just go ahead and take that six-person booth, no possible assholery there. Meanwhile, my group of six will consume four tables because of you.

          I just bought myself a bike.

          Now, how do I use it ?

        • It seems like our router was hijacked or something, but I honestly have no idea. My phone said I needed to sign in, which redirected to a URL lushka (dot) ml (slash) captive, which seems like it may have been a Mastodon instance at some point? Now it's just Nginx with the default "I'm Nginx!" webpage.

        • If the 2020 Democrat does not use “Make America Great Again” as her slogan, the comedian in me will force me to vote against her in protest of missing such an easy opportunity.

        • At least it certainly hasn't changed dramatically enough to warrant that. Maybe "Keep Strengthening America" or some such would be more modest.

          • Just when I thought I was pretty reasonably experienced with GNU, I tripped over some weird library loading issue. Apparently there's a cache of library path resoultions in /etc/ld.so.cache, and *apparently* the install script for my library didn't refresh it, so when I ran my program it said the library wasn't there when it clearly was, and using ldd to view all the subdependencies worked correctly, but would say `not found` for each of the custom libraries needed, even though those were also Definitely There. This weirdo command `ldconfig` fixed /etc/ld.so.cache and it worked again.

                  • And of course, I'm job hunting, fully aware that the last three jobs I held have driven me to increasingly vivid depths of suicidal ideation. I'd love to get help, but who's footing the bill? I can just barely cover rent and bills. Can't even afford Obamacare; gonna get a tax fine for that come April. Goodie!! I did well in school. I went to college, got a degree (and got hosed in the process, never gonna own a home unless I miraculously do manage to outlive my dad), I've been working my ass to the bone for just about twenty years, the better part of my life, and for what? So some halfwit shareholders can have a yacht with a yacht onboard? All for sitting around on their wallets.

                    Teller: "Making a large purchase?"
                    Me: "Not really, I'm laundering money to fund terrorism."
