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.

Good news: Nevada ditched The Caucus App that (allegedly) put results in the app developer's Google Drive

Bad news: Nevada's planning on using, I shit you not, a Google Form

@p @Lumeinshin @awl @theblessing Watching those congressional hearings on shit like encryption is fucking horrifying.

I wonder how many millions of girls were inspired to go into infosec or similar disciplines because of Acid Burn and Trinity

How to become a specialist in tech jobs:

you have to do something with a tool you don’t know
You hate it instantly
Turns out this tool is driving you mad
You spend 2 weeks fixing this particular tool and learning trough pain
You finally made it work
Congrats, now you are a specialist on something you hate.

the intel vs amd vuln count is not just cause people only look at intel chips, it's because AMD's architectures always check the accessibility of data *before* emitting speculative loads, and intel's always check at instruction retire - which is too late.

Client it is. Triggering people who get triggered by their public posts being public will come another day.

Client will be:
1) PyQt5. Cross platform. No Electron.
2) tabbed, QTreeView. Very high density. Should be unique. Meant for power users.
3) multiple accounts, of course!
4) Open a unified timeline, individual timelines, instances' public timelines, in tabs
5) Tor support, per-account
6) User agent can be changed, so nobody can punish you for using r000t's software
7) Requests?

PSA: Windows 7 end of support means: Scavenge all the 'old' computers! It be raining computing devices (prolly also a lot of data because newbs) which can be transformed with a single USB to a fully fledged linux workstation! i3-i5 intels for the grabs, if you're lucky i7!
Think: Companies, Libraries, Schools and Most of all Government institutes (they prolly be dumping their XP boxes and having a hard day finding out that their new integrated systems now function on 7 and need 5 years + millions to get to run on 10)

Free!!!! OEH! and if you're really lucky, they be thinking that they need new monitors too, because of win10 :blobcatgooglytrash:
