New meanings of old words!

hahaha: I am attempting to defuse and deflect a potentially awkward social situation instead of stepping up like AOC to assert the other party's failure to act appropriately

lol: finally, I have summited my emotional crag and can evangelize my faith that humanity is the method by which the universe laughs at concepts like "purpose" and "meaning"

I'm so old I graduated college before the "classic" red Swingline stapler was actually mass-produced

I should point out this is the first time I’ve logged onto a Linux box in a decade. Not even embedded Linux. For ten years

Anyway surely now I’m ready to build a super-duper Centos 7 box with multiple GeForce 2080 Tis to make DaVinci Resolve scream through 8K RED footage

Today I reset a Centos 6 root password through GRUB and reset an Apache password through htpasswd and oh yeah, I’ve never used GNOME before?

Anyway Cache-A made some cool LTO backup/archive appliances before they got bought out by Promax, and it’s kinda BS that support is over for those units because they’re really cool boxes.

The year is 2019 and I can’t buy a good majority of consumer technology because we lack privacy legislation and consumer protections. Example: it’s absurd that my TV came with spyware that can’t be turned off or avoided; I had to stop it from phoning home at the network level. It also came with an arbitration clause and a clause waiving the right to a class action lawsuit.

I: Anal Probing Aliens
II: Daddy Drank
III: Dipping Areas

But there are liminal moments between ages as well.

@jk modern preschools are implementing Rec.2100 color, which uses the R’Y’B’ color volume one gazillion percent larger than prior fingerpaint systems

Red primaries are bloodier, yellows are more uriney, blues are also bloodier, and mixtures of all the paints are much more realistically muddy; it’ll change the way consumers enjoy cliched juvenile attempts at facile self-expression forever

Mastodon is fun and supportive and honest and brand-free and is the source of the best shitposting in the galaxy my God seeing Garfield’s post about being a white male is like watching a dirty pale Parisian rotate a urinal and sign it “R. Mutt”
