been thinking about making an "Abort Retry Fail" enamel keychain for like a year now but worried there isn't enough DOS enthusiasts for it :v

@stephaniewalter because people who post a pile of stickers are usually intending to make them available to others in one way or another? Either available for purchase or they're only available through some other means (like for patrons or conference giveaway or included with some other purchase or as a reward for prior action of some kind)

I apologise if I missed some context that suggests otherwise; I did look first

können wir ein Open Streetmap-Projekt starten, in dem wir Restaurants festhalten, die sich an die Maskenpflicht halten? Bitte? 🥺

@rochelimit ding! The number of times I want to watch something and I literally have no way to give my money to the people who offer it is ridiculous. I ended up watching Picard at a friend's house because CBS would literally not accept my money

But unfortunately, people in general seem unwilling to pay for individual shows and would rather have bundles. Sigh.

@rochelimit we had "pay one subscription to see everything" (Cable) and it sucked. It's way more expensive than being able to turn subs on and off.

What I want is to be able to rent a specific show for as long as it takes me to watch rather than subscribe to a "channel".

Things we didn't do:
- Start the fire
- Shoot the deputy
- Steal the cookies from the cookie jar

Things we did:
- Tried to fight it
- Shot the sheriff
- Put the sham in the shama-lama-ding-dong

Things we will do:
- Survive
- Rock you
- Walk 500 miles
- Walk 500 more

Things we won't do:
- Get fooled again
- Back down
- That

Things we will never do:
- Give you up
- Let you down
- Run around
- Desert you

- I did it again)

That's not a rating system of "5 means secure!"; it's one star for each of the 5 *minimum* security practices — it's right in the name. The branding and UX is confusing, which Mozilla should be ashamed of

But they're not claiming Zoom is outstanding, just that it does each of the five basic things to meet the bare minimum

@feld @TheGibson Speedqueen is good stuff. But also as a datapoint: I have Samsung washer and dryer. They came with my house. They are now 12 years old, and have done just fine, show no signs of being likely to break down

I had need of one repair, it was $200 total including labor

You tend to only hear when people have problems, because no one tells stories about their appliances working just fine; if you take care of even pretty cheap appliances, they last

@stephaniewalter ah, I see; so it’s more “this thing you’re doing isn’t working because it’s not actually empathy”? Is that a reasonable summary?

@yojimbo @FLauenroth @TheGibson ok, but (a) that’s imminently loggable, and (b) if you can’t trust your users to run any user space software then you have a very different problem then securing your remote access, no?

@stephaniewalter IDGI, he says empathy is impossible and wrong and then argues passionately that we need to consider users' needs and points of view. That's… empathy (specifically cognitive empathy) by definition

Those of us who study nuclear waste disposal for no good reason will find this "Live Laugh Love" sign pants-wettingly hilarious.



@TheGibson and CNN falling for the propaganda of “the far-left group Antifa”. Sigh.

@djsundog There was, briefly. Refugees from CompuServe and AOL made a startup and rented a property on the outskirts of Saratoga, CA with the intent of creating KPG, a "perfect" format that would supersede GIF, JPEG, TIFF, etc. Based on emails sent that Fri. in May, one of the coders came up with a new compression algorithm. But when the C code was tested, something happened that created a spherical, non-gravitational event horizon ~20m across.

We don't want kpg. Ever. Just let it be.

@leip4Ier I think you’d be surprised how much of the web has backends in really old stuff is what I’m saying. I get that it feels weird to think of COBOL as a web language. I get that it’s a really bad choice in many ways.

I’m also 1000% not surprised that there’s a big market for it that Cloudflare is trying to serve. That’s my main point: there’s no clear line between “then” and “now”

@leip4Ier I mean, you can say the exact same things about COBOL. The language has been overhauled twice. It's changed a lot since its inception, but the principles and design are still there
