I'm kinda just waiting for Twitter to cave in and start censoring Hong Kong stuff.

It could be great for the Fediverse. Because, you know, nobody on the Fediverse would *ever* pressure others to cut ties with somebody for supporting free speech.

In response to the President Trump (USA)'s executive order blocking all commercial and non-commercial property transactions with Venezuela, Adobe has begun cancelling accounts belonging to Venezuelans.

The only good computer is a computer you own.

The only good computer is a computer you understand.

The only good computer is a computer you control.

The only good computer is a computer running software that respects your rights.

Any existing advice from migrating a Gentoo installation from Intel to AMD (or vice versa) involves the old system being available. A luxury I don't have in this case.

Pulling this off might just cure my impostor syndrome.

Face unlock has been on Android for years... My GS3 had it. But it's news to include it now because Apple did it.

2009: Hey wiretap, turn on the lights.... HEY WIRETAP..... Turn on the lights... No, I don't want information on flights... Hey wiretap, turn. On. The. Living. Room. Lights.

1999: *clap* *clap*'s downtime brought to you by, GIGABYTE.

GIGABYTE: Insist on ULTRA DURABLE, which seems to mean "Fails one month out of warranty"

Also fun: It's literally going to be cheaper to get an AM4 board and a Ryzen 5 than to get a new X99 mainboard.

Hot Take: Nobody can use the new Intel side channel attack to watch you enter an SSH password if you use SSH keys.
