  1. @scribus Blame Obama for making Trump look bad by creating an organization Trump dismantled.

  2. @mrmattimation I used to travel to that area for work. It was all right.

  4. @thismightbeauser I would have renewed it myself, but all the controls are locked, even though it's still under their ownership and still resolving. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875464

  5. @scribus Can you point me to the directions you're using? I could try it.

  6. I accidentally let my domain expire and now I'm really freaking out because I only just noticed today, which is coincidentally the very last day of my provider's grace period... http://rainbowdash.net/url/875463

  7. @scribus That's good. If you end up needing more help maybe you could Pastebin your config somewhere. Nginx can be particularly difficult to set up and even I have trouble configuring it without specific examples. The syntax it uses is particularly asinine. It seems like it's trying to imitate INI style configs, but then enforces the requirements of semicolons and braces. Omitting them often produces bizarre results instead of breaking completely.

  8. @scribus What issue are you having with nginx?

  9. I know that ad blocking is a hotly contested right (you're free to do it but you're trash and a thief if so tends to be the argument against it), but when a site pops all sorts of boxes over the content telling me to turn it off, I usually just leave. Even if I'm cool with the publisher, I don't think they realize how complicated it actually is to turn all that off correctly. First I have to allow the scripts for the ad network, usually churning through several refreshes of layered scripts (using an ad network is a major turnoff. It's better if you run your own ads. Coincidentally those ads are far less likely to be blocked by default since they're custom!!!1!), then I have to unblock it in my content blocker, THEN I have to remember to turn that junk back off before I leave. Temporary permissions aren't good enough, because you still have to remember to click the button to revoke them.

  10. @nerthos I think some of this makes sense, but I have a hard time believing that the world's current population level isn't sustainable, just that we haven't figured things out yet. There's a lot of junk produced that isn't necessary, or made in inefficient ways that could be cut out. I get what you're saying about deglobalization and the whole "buy local" slogan that environmentalists have been pushing kind of points back to that. Where do you draw the line though? Even goods shipped within larger countries like the US or China can travel vast distances before reaching their destination. Do those countries have to be split into regions then? People would probably be freaking out about that. No more California oranges in PA? No way! Probably not a great example due to Florida being closer, but still.

  11. I meant to add more to that but submitted accidentally. Supposedly China is already taking some measures to improve by nature of being actively strangled by their own pollution density, but it probably won't be enough. I guess we can't refuse to do business with their polluting businesses, at least not quickly enough to matter.

  12. @nerthos Would setting fire to Asia actually be so bad though? The Chernobyl exclusion zone is supposedly thriving ecologically.

  13. @mrmattimation I was never big on Buttigieg because I never knew anything about him and don't have any reason to find out now.

  14. I'm sad that I didn't get a chance to even consider Buttigieg, but I guess we still haven't had a woman president so having a gay one is asking *way* too much...

  15. I'm sure it's not nearly so simple in reality, but I feel like conquering climate change is a simple matter of banning some of the bad stuff with obvious alternatives (gas vs electric consumer vehicles, for example) and watching the market self-correct. But everyone is afraid to pull that lever because it could be political suicide.

  16. @scribus Yeah, it was actually a pretty good deal for the area. Still a little steep though.

  17. @mrmattimation I had a trip to Santa Monica a few years ago and it was $150/night for a crappy room a block away from the beachfront with no air conditioning or breakfast.

  20. @scribus Yep, that's the one I thought you meant, and that there was some other artist called Sage.

  21. @scribus I kind of like Savant's music so I'm mildly curious what the issue was.

  23. I remember shortly after Steve Irwin died, I said something disparaging about how he probably was doing something unnecessarily risky when he died (my family nicknamed him "Stupid Guy") and I got scolded because you're not supposed to speak poorly of the dead because they can't defend themselves. Turns out it wasn't really his fault, he just ran into some bad luck with an animal that shouldn't have been interested in attacking him at all.

  26. From reddit:

    mkdir temp
    chmod -R 400 temp
    cd temp
    alias "you=touch"
    you this

    you: can't touch this

  27. @thismightbeauser Actually I double checked and I guess it's fine since the writer just uses offsets. The reader was coded for the C64 so it doesn't matter if it's portable.

  28. Apparently reading a binary file to a char pointer and casting to a struct is a bad thing because different architectures can insert padding between the fields to cause them to align "better" for that machine. Writing is the same. I was writing an RLE binary file (a packed bitmap) this way on x64 and reading on 6502 (Commodore 64) and I guess I got lucky that nothing exploded since all the fields were in order of descending size.
