@LeoSammallahti because our society is so stratified, you can use it to mean pretentious, or small-minded, depending on the context. Mainly a way to generalise about people and paint them as lacking individuality.
You're not supposed to be proud of being middle class here. You can be proud to be working class or upper class but not middle. It's almost something that happens to you by accident
@tedu these days if you call yourself a bank, you get arrested and thrown in jail
This happens a lot, the innovations in political and social organising happen on the radical left, and then a few years later they're picked up by the radical right.
@kawaiipunk this is an extract from my soon-to-be published centrist bible "Making Things Better Only Makes Things Worse"
@kawaiipunk if we improve anything about an experience, then people will choose to have that experience more. This is simple economics.
Therefore your suggestion is not only unworkable, but actively dangerous, as it would bring to a crashing halt any industry or commerce in this country, as we would all spend all our time listening to uncompressed music on hold
@nindokag they could approach Founders and Coders https://www.foundersandcoders.com/tech-for-better/
I have a volunteer opportunity!
A friend of a friend is the program manager for www.lincolnfamilies.org
. It's a really good cause: helping underprivileged kids in the Oakland area not fall further behind due to missing school during COVID.
they're looking for someone to do some (pro bono) app development.
(I wish I could do this myself, but app development isn't one of my skills and I'm busy with other volunteering)
Contact me for details if interested.

Non-POSIX file systems
Operating systems and file systems have traditionally been developed hand in hand. They impose mutual constraints on each other. Today we have two major leaders in file system semantics: Windows and POSIX. They are very close to each other when compared to the full set of possibilities. Interesting things happened before POSIX monopolized file system semantics.
@nindokag is it that smart when the phone decides it knows what the colours are better than you?
@machado also, and obviously this is very petty, but my favourite mini supermarket is shut for refurbishment for >two weeks. So can't even buy stuff to relieve the boredom
@machado no hope of escape
@machado limited choice of activity, routine of exercise -> work -> read a book alone
My mum and sister are my cell mates, the only people I see in the physical world
