Trailer for the new season of Doctor Who seems promising (from what little you can actually tell)...

YES, PLEASE.

I may have to re-subscribe to Netflix for this...

The Voyager 1 spacecraft, 7.25 million miles away and speeding towards Jupiter, looked homeward #OTD in 1977 and captured the first picture of the whole Earth and Moon together in the same frame.

@Azure you could shorten it to 'werm' and 'wom'

I wonder if I could get away with writing 'werman' for male human, 'woman' for female human, and 'man' for gender unspecified/irrelevant human when writing Anglish. It would be closer to the original meanings.

Now parsing HTML with regular expressions and why can’t I feel my legs?

The fediverse is impressively hungry for anti-harassment tools!

The other day, I released t5.codesections.com/ —a tool to learn who you favorite most. It's a fun tool and spread widely with 30 boosts.

Yesterday, I released mastodon-de-mob.codesections.c As an anti-harassment tool you only use when being actively mobbed, I thought it would be of niche interest.

But instead, it's been boosted nearly 100 times(!), and is still going strong.

@Gargron this might tell you what features people want

The left needs to reassert its claim on the ideal of freedom. Right now we're fixated on equality, which is useful in a limited way but breaks down rhetorically and theoretically when loaded too heavily. (e.g. "In the year 2081 everybody was finally equal.") Freedom is an extremely powerful ideal and Friedmanites and social liberals shouldn't be allowed to monopolize it. In 1941, FDR could talk seriously about "freedom from want" as one of the four essential freedoms. Let's go back there.

I will save the Predator franchise by making dozens of period period piece films that feature various peoples throughout history suddenly realize they're being hunted

imperial China, wild west America, pre-columbian Mexico, colonial South Africa, there are no bad options. just people through the ages fighting big aliens; it's perfect

A quirk I love about modern english (early and current) is that whenever we noun a verb the stress moves from the first to the second syllable to denote "thing-ness"

Hence, you record a record; rebels rebel; a permit permits; an envelop envelopes; and you suspect the suspects.

Someone brought up a really good point about headphone jacks. I want to clarify that I'm not demeaning the criticism of their removal. I think it's yet another disgusting aspect of the widespread exercise of control and a massive security fail.

My audio peripherals got no fucking business accessing a port or wireless protocol that can send actual data instead of audio-only signal. Fuck off with that shit. People WILL be keylogged because of this.

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
