  1. I find it way more amusing than I probably should that there's a Homestar*Runner reference in the Node.js documentation.

  2. @adiwan Take pictures if you do. That sounds pretty sweet

  3. @mrmattimation I doubt God will allow the world to last that long considering how much less time he waited to incarnate.

  6. @mrmattimation Is that what that was about? Was wondering why I was breaking even again. It concerns me that the market is influenced by anything he says. It's clear he hasn't been very concerned with the truth this whole time, but calming people down, as the deadlines for "opening up the country" keep moving further out as he continues to claim they're right around the corner. It's harmful to the response as people who aren't paying attention may miss the actual directions and continue to spread this thing when the fake deadlines come up.

  8. @thismightbeauser But I guess if you're concerned about that then you'd want to wait a year, idk

  9. @thismightbeauser Especially since short term capital gains are taxed higher.

  10. @thismightbeauser So run those commands at the command line at lmk what the result is.

  11. @scribus Can you give me your `lsb-release -a` and your `nginx -v` also? Thx.

  12. @mrmattimation You would probably be better off just buying as much as you can afford and holding onto it for a few months, regardless of how much it drops in the short term, but I'm no financial expert.

  13. Another thing I wonder about is "let's make ventilators" just some sleight of hand to get the government to let the auto manufacturers to stay open while continuing business as usual in the shadows. I mean, likely not. Hopefully? I've probably just had too much time to overthink it. The unions certainly wouldn't tolerate it.

  14. @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

  15. @scribus I realize you're just joking, but with all of the ill will that circulates about rich people, it makes me wonder if the stigma is self-perpetuating because all the smart (good?) ones don't talk about their wealth. So it looks like rich people are scabs when in reality the scabs are the only ones talking about having money at all.

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

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

  19. @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

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

  21. 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

  22. @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.

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

  24. 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.

  25. @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.

  26. 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.

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

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

    about 9 months ago from web in context
  29. 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...

  30. 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.
