Nine if by time machine, ten if by Matrix hardpoint, eleven if by summoning circle, twelve if by intertextual metafiction.

If you hate on Comic Sans you are being shitty.

Comic Sans is a font that is easy to read for dyslexic folks.

TL is full of people shitting on free speech because hate speech is bad. Hate speech isn't protected speech, and doesn't normally fall under "free speech." If you act like it does you're doing the nazi's bidding by promoting their ideas of what speech should be protected on the one hand, and authoritarian control of ideas on the other.

Of course you might just not like that people have the right to voice ideas and opinions that contradict yours. In that case you've crossed over from dangerous idiot to malicious idiot.

If I didn't like doing dumb things and getting dumb errors, I would not be a systems administrator. :flan_XD:

Free Marvel character idea:

Doctor Normal, the Mediocrity Mundane.

His superpower is that he is totally resistant to magic of any kind.

His PhD is in ISO 9001 quality management statistical analysis, and he was voted 'most average person in America' for ten years runnning.

I'm at a FP conference, and just as the speaker put up this slide the entire hotel lost power.

So I've been looking into alternatives to Sonos speakers, which I currently have integrated with my #homeassistant. I hate that im tied into Sonos's ecosytem using their shit app. Home assistant bypasses this slightly by allowing me to control most things on the speakers. I seen a few good alternatives like libratone but nothing great. Anyone use a decent alternative ?

if you make a joke on Mastodon, no matter WHAT the content is, after 50+ boosts people will appear in the replies that take it completely at literal face value.

you could post "a man walks into a bar, says ouch!" and if it receives 50+ boosts, then you will begin seeing replies like "THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN STEEL BAR PLACEMENT IS DEREGULATED BY PROFIT DRIVEN CROOKS!"

this theory is commonly known as Eugen's Gambit. and i love it.

Please, please, please make it a habit of yours to say as specific as possible what you want to talk about, when you request a call or meeting (e.g. at work).

It reduces so much stress for people, especially ones with mental illnesses (of which you might not know).
