More to the point, if someone needs to be pre-emptively shielded from all negativity, they may wish to put the computer away.

Nick Jr., Noggin, and Sprout are still broadcasting for their convenience.

the computers our students use are Windows 10 laptops with one administrator account

one of the students logged into his Microsoft account to download Minecraft. apparently, this tied his Microsoft account to the singular admin account. this has also now tied his parents' "screen time usage restriction" to the laptop.

the laptop now no longer works until 7 am tomorrow....

My boss asked me for some work account's password once. "I don't know," I said, "I don't know any of my passwords. I use a password manager and passwords that exceed 32 characters if possible."

My boss thought that was silly. Today, breaking a SHA-256-encoded hash for a 12-character password takes less than an hour.

Services that limit password length give away hints about their shoddy password hashing practices. Do not trust them.

IRC, XMPP, any number of Discord/Slack clones that can run on-site, even Mastodon will use LDAP/PAM auth.

Stop using Slack for your business.

Understand my words with full knowledge and reverence for my connection to the void.

My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

My data is not yours to own.

This is a thing of beauty. The met police Twitter account got hacked

Your reminder that Mastodon's "remote follow" window is the PERFECT place to put a phishing page.

We need another broadcast signal intrusion incident.

Just to see everyone blaming everyone else for it.

Well... Steam worked on Gentoo. Once, after I installed it.

After a reboot, nada. I'm assuming it's a library issue. A whole four Google results for this error.

Really not trying to take the virtualization hit to play TF2. It's bad enough on League of No Optimizations.

I don't call it Domino's. It's meowminos.

Watch, and you'll do the same thing.

Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?

* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.

* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.

* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.

* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.

So, any discussion online of HOAs, someone mentions that theirs restricts the use of TV antennas. You should know, that's straight up illegal, and unenforceable.

In my family's case, we offered to take the antenna down in exchange for our mortgage paid off. Never head from the HOA again.

So here you have the full picture now: doesn't work and never will. Stop recommending it, stop organizing key signing parties, you aren't helping anybody doing that. Just put it to grave instead.

My cellphone company just texted to ask me if I, and I quote, 'need more data to gram my dish'

I'm not very familiar with kids today and their extremely online slang, but I assume they're asking me if I want to buy drugs using Bitcoin

@nandemoguy , our fellow townie, is the force behind

They are selling some neat stuff now for fans of the film.

I would advise taking a look.

That Lord Nikon shirt has my attention... But so does Curtis' JVC shirt.
