mama didn't raise a quitter but she did raise a homosexual and and an idiot

it's finally getting snowy out and it's so pretty! very comfy weather to drink something warm n eat gingerbread to as long as you stay inside

I never tried this, so I wanted to try it immediately...

"gifted child"?? yeah gifted with immense homosexuality and computer autism alright

My pronouns are they/she, except if you're on Windows, then they're they\she

after some wrangling, the raspberry pi composite out feed now displays on the CRT. Here it displays a terminal-based screensaver (cmatrix); it is also monitoring the temperature and humidity in the living room. Next challenge is getting infrared signal working!

who called it "legend of zelda speedrunning" and not "link-time optimization"

Once libraries are nonexistent any modern fascist movement wouldn't even have to burn books, but flick one switch and they'd be remotely deleted from your Amazon Kindle or similar digital β€œlibrary”.

Capitalists are already building the infrastructure to do this through DRM, so stop believing tech is apolitical - the defunding of libraries and paywalling of information are all part of this. :trantifa:

been playing around with rendering strange attractors recently :P

The word "excellent" is derived from the Christian practice of giving up the use of Microsoft Excel for 40 days to commemorate Christ's sacrifice.

It is a period of great productivity.

The date of lent is calculated by using an obscure Excel macro on a field that didn't originally have anything to do with dates, but Excel converted it to one anyway.
