If I had a dime for every time I have read “use this command line tool it’s SO EASY!”

and then there’s no explanation or documentation or anything anywhere

Well, if I had a dime for every time that happened

I’d be in Málaga Spain, proud owner of that €12m greenhouse

Since Misskey allows for quote posting....

how do those posts appear to those of us in no-god-damn-quote-posting spaces?

when the film has 2 seeders 0 leechers, you know it's gonna be good

yeah I'm into ASMR

Thinking about how Jared Leto's best performance was in Requiem For A Dream, gold star work as a pathetic and irresponsible fuckboy who didn't remotely deserve his grotesquely exploited girlfriend. It was all downhill from there because no other role could suit him as well

I'm looking for conference posters that are NOT in English or other Latin texts for my poster blog.

Anyone know an conference with poster sessions where the primary language is not English and similar?

Me: fuck, this one too!?

There are those of us who grew up in the transition from "lasting products" to "planned obsolescence" products.

and I feel like there's a certain ennui that is indelibly intertwined with those kinds of things.

In South Asia, the term describes foreigners, specifically British but also more generally white Europeans.

It's such an apt name for the Star Trek species which embodies and makes a literal religion out of everything that is wrong with British/European/USian colonialism, capitalism, and patriarchy; greed, sexism, profiteering, classism, racism, and so on.

I know there aren't many Apple users on here, but just fyi: if you use an Apple product, make extra, extra, *extra* sure not to break it for at least a couple months because part acquisition right now is off the rails due to supply chain shit. We're talking repairs measured in months here.
