just asking questions
said if you want to call me baby, just go ahead now
My white whale joke combines Spin Doctors' "Two Princes" with the 16th century Italian telling of the Persian fairy tale "Three Princes of Serendip." Can't quite figure it out but someday I will
I think a fun thing would be a podcast hosted at an Onion Service! You'd need to do horrible things to obtain it. Probably the files are Ogg Vorbis too
Today I told a friend about a fun side project I was working on and he had some great suggestions on how to improve it. So I excitedly told my collaborator about his great ideas and she told me I had pitched them to her (and completely forgot) like, days ago. No wonder his ideas were so good!

Also if somebody could explain the tor.service and firstname.lastname@example.org thing, I would be very grateful
Any Tor folks on here who are also Debian or Ubuntu users?

I had to manually add a ReadWriteDirectories line to the email@example.com file. Does that sound... correct?
honestly tho f the yiga clan
I don't really understand why systemd is so bad but every time I encounter it things go very badly
and also, testing (lol)
I feel like there's a hard cap on the complexity of software I can write because I'm unwilling to learn the support structures that would allow me to do things more complex than what I can hold in my head
