What’s the point in being a grown up if you can’t be a little childish sometimes?

*obnoxious dickhead voice* hmm. but have you also considered using a search engine that is much better than google, such as duckduckgo? also, deepl is much better for translation.

I've been setting my alarm for 6:30 the past couple of days for the Big Move, and I've been having some WILD dreams.

Did you know that DVD burners work by having a drawer full of tiny white spiders chitter around and around the disc, knocking data into the plastic via their noses?

Well I do now!

Gnome3's reliability has absolutely tanked recently. Tracker in particular is a troublesome piece of shit.
There is no excuse for shitty housekeeping processes to run away and crash the whole OS. None.

the delta boarding taxonomy is some real celestial emporium shit. pre-boarding, families, active military, first class, gold medallion, silver medallion, tungsten sphere, SKY, unaccompanied children, accompanied children, zone 1, anyone named "larry," zone √2, zone 2, et cetera, zone 3, people who have already boarded, minor and outlying zones

UPS Quantum View now requiring registration for viewing tracking numbers, which is irritating.

it seems like encryption is hacky authorization a lot of times. an authorization policy clearly states who can access what information and when. it enforces the policy with multiple mechanisms, including encryption. ideally, it also detects and alerts when the policy is violated.

when a service brags about encrypting stuff, what they're saying to me is that they've done the bare minimum to start keeping people from looking at stuff they shouldn't be. hacky.

"And that was the problem with 1968. People went ahead and built those things without worrying much about the consequences, because they figured that, by 2018, we’d have come up with all the answers. Toward 2019!"

Google photos threw this uo in my memories from 6 years ago, I saw this little scamp on my walk into work, in the yard of a very large house. He always wanted to play. Sometimes would bring his ball to the railings.

Hope you have a great 2019, fediverse friends.

How's everyone's Winter weather been?
It's been very mild this Christmas holiday. It's nearly 56F today and climbing; last year the *high* was 12F / -11C. These are more like early Spring temperatures. We will almost certainly get some hard snaps in January.

From dev attitudes alone, Mastodon does feel like the systemd of the fediverse.
