@lain you should never bathe a cat. They clean themselves fine (unlike humans).

Humans who live in cities need to bathe, because cities are disease-ridden.

Just got Librem phone. I am utterly deeply dissapointed. I can understand that undertaking here is massive, really massive. I understand that nothing exists in ecosystem and we are starting felm scratch here. But, man...this is not about fit&finidh issue, it is not about phone being unusable as daily driver. Even the basic functions do not work. Perf is horrid, not one application is made robust not to crash, camera not working, LED firing out of sudden and not stopping...

@Tritium It's been 2 years since I saw Scotland. 😢

I guess I need to learn more of the local language if I ever want to see drugs again.

The one thing I still miss about Facebook is the drugs. It's apparently impossible to get drugs since 2019 without it.

@nergal This question has been altered to 'would you like to opt out of Facebook's data collaction?'.

Everyone in the questionnaire has now been enrolled in Facebook's new bespoke advert program.

I've just been on hold for a taxi, and I want to publicly apologize to Muzak, and request Muzak returns.

We're all very sorry we made fun of you for being 'elevator music'. Please come back. We can't deal with what came next.

@frank @nergal @MilquetoastQT This questionnaire has been altered to "would you like to keep receiving Linux updates?". Those who answered "no" will be migrated to TempleOS.

@Tritium @frank @ChrisWere we get new episodes, or we rewrite the Linux kernel in bash.

Are there any search engines that don't have sites which require a sign-up?

The way I see the conversation is this: I want stuff involving 'purple rabbits' or whatever, then the search engine says the rabbits are over there.

Then, arriving at the site, I'm told the content isn't actually available without forming some kind of relationship with the site, and disabling my ad-shields, which means the content isn't actually accessible, merely 'potentially accessible, with the right efforts'.

Can we call it 'Jibber' to avoid copyright problems, then all agree to mispell it every time?

Also, how do you copyright a normal word? Can I copyright 'the'?

@wuffel I have no idea why you're writing an 'echo' output to disk.

> echo "hello hamburg" | xclip -i

It's doing it again, but now cannot paste the URL.

What kind of programmer fails to handle pasting a line of text?

Show thread

Mail (the email client for Windows 10), has a loading bar for pasting text.

Someone saw that pasting text takes a long time, and instead of thinking 'OMG, we pasted text in the 80's without a problem', they decided to write a loading animation in, so that people would understand the paste is coming.

This is beyond parody.
