Hey, WeTransfer, I’ve heard a lot of Silicon Valley bullshit in my time but “we must violate your privacy to save the trees” is a new one even for me.

Please, take a fucking bow.

Finally finished my first #rust project, after 683 projects that I started and never got managed to finish.

And yes, it's barely 50 lines and most of it is slightly modified copy-pasted code, but hey, `cargo run` runs fine. Definitely room for improvements though.

Ours was now a country in which the cost of replacing a broken machine with a newer model was typically lower than the cost of having it fixed by an expert, which itself was typically lower than the cost of sourcing the parts and figuring out how to fix it yourself. This fact alone virtually guaranteed technological tyranny, which was perpetuated not by the technology itself but by the ignorance of everyone who used it daily and yet failed to understand it. To refuse to inform yourself about the basic operation and maintenance of the equipment you depended on was to passively accept that tyranny and agree to its terms: when your equipment works, you'll work, but when your equipment breaks down you'll break down, too. Your possessions would possess you.

The vaccines mitigate worst of it, but don't stop transmission. Better vaccine research, till we kill its ability to pass on. Not jab and act as if there is no virus out there, so the elites can make money out of their wage slaves again!

Long covid is a thing that will bite our NHS in the ass. Unless the key is to sell it off and generate profit from misery.

I'm still in FEAR for my life, my family & I don't trust this corrupt lying Gov to protect its people at all!

#ukpol #covid #rant 1/2 

I'm exasperated the UK Gov is actively allowing this potentially fatal/crippling virus to run rampant through our population. Scandal to get Hancock out, roll Javid in, change of guard, adopt their initial stance.

We're looking at 35k+/day new infections! We're still seeing 50-100 deaths a day! They've already killed 150k+, ~1 in 400 people!

Most of the UK seem to want to ignore it now, so they can grab a latte at Starbucks again!

Neoliberal freedom but at what cost?!

I have been trying out FlorisBoard for the past week and have been really impressed. It is an open-source replacement for the spyware that is Google’s Android keyboard.

Holy crap, there's now a Community Edition version of Brogue! There's a dedicated group doing bugfixes, improving the code and adding quality of life improvements. It's quite good, and great to see my favourite #oldschool #Roguelike getting that kind of love.
