@cblgh "we have increasingly come to understand that GUIs hide the systems that drive that production, and by extension, the labor to maintain and sustain them."


Growing slap bang in the middle of my drive. It's very pretty.

Computers in fiction in the 1960s / 70s.

"I am a super brain, able to debate with the likes of Plato and Socrates combined, but I can't feel love."

Computers from today:

"Did you mean 'ducking'?" I am experiencing that emotion of wanting to laugh but its not actually funny at all.

I wonder why I run to OpenBSD sometimes, like a sinner that has strayed far from the Church. Then I read things like this, and remember why.

I see Apple have expanded ifconfig in new and exciting ways (head smashing sound)

This is normally a remote day for me so I don't get that holiday feeling. However everyone else is home and that's different. I am on the couch with my dog drinking my morning ☕️☕️ happy holidays if it is one in your part of the world.

I was playing with new firewall rules and managed to lock everyone, including myself out for the day. This was a great success, because I now know that particular rule doesn't fucking work

The Vader/Kenobi fight in the finale of Obi Wan is so good, and very similar to the Ahsoka scene in Rebels.

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

"money cant buy happiness "

yes, it can, sounds like a skill issue on your end

And you can have rules pinned to a service or executable, as well as a *nix like simple network rule. This allows flexibility, but also gets horribly complicated to understand just what the fuck is going on.

That said, there's something like six different entries for RDP connections, and you'll need to switch them *all* off to get your own rules in there. This is silly.

Some of it is part of the MS sausage machine, like all the WinRm shite and SMB (endless retching noises)

Fooling about with managing Windows Firewall with Powershell, and am discovering the usual 'Windows things', like by default there's 70 rules that are enabled that are a default allow. It's howling fucking madness.
