First day at Feeld today. Senior Engineer, exploring new and interesting frontiers in devops/infosec shenaniganry. Fully remote! Radically inclusive! This is going to be good.

don't mind me, just posting the crew of Enterprise posing on the NX-01 bridge dressed as Rocky Horror characters

If you’ve watched Netflix’s Another Life season 1 and played the Mass Effect original trilogy, can you please tell me i’m not crazy and that you see it too? And keep it ambiguous, nobody likes spoilers.

‪Next time some haunted joint of mutton from the Tory party tells you climate change is a myth, here’s what I want you to do.‬

‪Look the bastard dead in the eyes.‬

Re this whole Portland situation, I'm waiting patiently for it to turn out that some cop fucked up and saw someone writing about protestors throwing a concrete (ie, a milkshake which is nearer to ice cream) and assumed they meant concrete (ie, the building material).

The SKS keyserver network is under attack, and it took a grand total of four comments to descend into a defence of child pornography

Hbomb, Olly (PhilosophyTube), and Contra are the 2010s version of the late 90s Chris Morris, Armando Ianucci, and Stewart Lee trifecta

The new Pi is hot shit. Dual 4K HDMI. Gigabit Ethernet. USB3. Hardware h.264 and h.265 up to 4K at 60fps. USB-C PD power input. Very very nice indeed.

We're now on 2.9.0 - if you want to enable single-column mode (think birdsite rather than birdsitedeck), it's available in your preferences.

‪Boris Johnson will win the Tory leadership.‬

‪He’s learned the game from his Bullingdon days, burning £50 notes in front of homeless people. He’s played it on easy mode and he will reap the rewards he thinks he deserves.‬

‪Boris Johnson will be our Prime Minister.‬

‪This is hell.‬
