I assumed that if GPT-3 generated pickup lines, they would be terrible because they would be something like human pickup lines. Instead, they are terrible for more delightful reasons.

It's illegal to enter buildings in the zone as most of them are completely unstable, and due to a new zone administration there's typically no bribing your way out of a situation. Sometimes in the most unsuspecting places you may find street art left behind by a Stalker who risked arrest for something many will never see. Somewhat of a real life Easter egg, or a subtle nod to defiance: "You're not suppose to be here."

Location: Chernobyl Exclusion-zone, Ukraine. 2019.

linux, catgirls, anime eye contact as filtered through monospace text, programming 

once upon a time (yesterday) @ln wrote that, if ps(1) shows processes on Linux, then pspsps shows catgirls

as a result, I made this.

it is a bit of overkill I'm afraid, but welp, Mommy is back to the softwares I guess 🤷‍♀️

Sailfish is a faint glimmer of hope, but frankly, I don't think they have the kind of money to throw at UX that MS, or even BlackBerry on its last leg, pumped into their mobile OSs.

I dug up my old Lumia 950 Windows Phone the other day.

Now I'm sad.

I'd convinced myself that Android isn't that bad, really, but half a second of seeing smooth 60fps UI animation, a single reactive swipe of the home screen, and I am (once again) wondering why the world decided that windows phone, and webOS, and Blackberry 10 (aka QNX) had to die, and Android may live.

someone on discord mentioned a bug in a game and someone else said "yeah, that happens when you X while Y, and nobody knows why"

so i spent an hour staring at a disassembler just so i could quote them and say "incorrect. i know why"

intel CPU history 

intel has made a fuck ton of CPUs. do you know how many? lots of them. every new process requires new factories and all kinds of waste. but did you know there's a DARK secret? ok maybe not DARK or a secret, but something really worth digging in to. so let's look at the history here

No, the weather app was not sending a notification warning of "Light Show", but now I wish it was

mastodon admin 

Firewall settings fixed, Mastodon version upgraded. It's amazing how resilient my single-user instance was against operator error there.

My web interface was several minor versions behind the server, and I accidentally made my firewall settings much more draconian (the docker container could not make outbound connections, only answer nginx requests).

And yet the experience was still bearable enough I put off fixing things for almost two weeks.
