"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
Ну ты же понимаешь, что "ругать путина" - это фигура речи. Я вот в тот момент наоборот, в охранительство ударился. А сейчас я ни с теми, ни с другими, что, полагаю, говорит о том, что я переборол хотя бы часть этой хрени.
В любом случае, фокус на здоровье и как можно меньше интернетов, иначе свалишься в затяжную унылость и руки просто начнут опускаться.
There are three infallible ways of pleasing an author, and the three form a
rising scale of compliment: 1, to tell him you have read one of his books; 2,
to tell him you have read all of his books; 3, to ask him to let you read the
manuscript of his forthcoming book. No. 1 admits you to his respect; No. 2
admits you to his admiration; No. 3 carries you clear into his heart.

auspol, very bad, encryption Show more
okay so the australian government just passed a bill stating that companies can be forced to decrypt their data by the government
gotta love the government. remember when turnbull stated that the laws of australia overrule the laws of mathematics? this is the government we have in charge, and they're making horrible, horrible decisions that are going to have massive, far reaching negative impact on privacy around the world. and the labor government backed this for whatever reason.
this is always true, but especially now.
don't trust random companies. encrypt things yourself. put encrypted files on encrypted cloud services you run. use end to end encryption. and if it's something you can't risk the government seeing, consider deleting it.
this isn't going to stop, it's going to get worse and worse. even if you're not in australia, this can affect you. end to end encryption can't be decrypted by companies, so they're unable to comply with government requests for decryption. use it where you can, and do the really private stuff offline where you can.
stay safe 💜
