A photo that I did not take somewhere in Japan taken this winter. Snowboarders would call it Japow, I understand they get huge dumps in the mountains but the mountains don't have enough steep sections to truly enjoy the deep stuff.

I've worked in a lot of different sciences and what I've discovered is that each science is its own slightly bizarre alternate reality where the scientific method turned out differently.

Instance admin just lost their job, might need help 

Mstdn.social is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

I'm working for a big tech company in California. Yesterday all employees received an email from our security guys.

They have evidence that these gadgets are recording audio from conference calls.

Nothing new to me but notable that I've got this order.

Am now yeeting Excel and doing it in Perl as I should have done in the first place.

Note to young people: “Perl” is a programming language used by old people.

Note to old people: “yeet” is a term used by young people to mean “hurl at high velocity”.

Note to people of all ages: Excel is not a database.

Don’t be Google

Google has lost touch with their roots. What they did today is the equivalent of banning a web browser because it could access unapproved sites.

Unfortunately, the only effective appeals process is raising a stir on social media. twitter.com/element_hq/status/
