@uoou watching the recent #TrendyTalk, I'm not a keyboard guru, I have a ten key less Red Dragon mechanical keyboard, & wondered how you cope with playing #CavesOfQud with your compact Unicom keyboard. I had to buy a numpad version of the Red Dragon to play #roguelike Qud because 8 way movement seems to be essential.
Stop being AGAINST. Find something to be FOR and find friends that think the same. Being FOR something is rewarding. Being AGAINST just makes you miserable. #LifeHack
Carl Sagan Keynote Speech at Emerging Issues Forum (1990)
Dr. Sagan's 2/9/1990 address before the 5th Emerging Issues Forum at NCSU, broadcast live on NC Public TV. Sagan spoke at the invitation of former Gov. Jim Hunt, co-creator of the Forum. The speech begins at 6:12.
Thirty-one years ago, Carl Sagan (host of the original Cosmos television series, think of today's Neil DeGrasse Tyson) spoke on the risks and remedies of global warming and climate change. If you want to have some idea of what we knew and what was recommended at the time, and how many decades we've lost ... Watch and listen.
It's also worth emphasizing that this event was held in North Carolina, at the invitation of the governor of that state, something hard to imagine occurring today.
Though the Republican Party is revealed again as the party of denial opposed to science.

Did you know that CollapseOS is now considered completed? I didn't!
I find it frustrating how the project has become increasingly inaccessible, using a private mailing list for communication and moving off Git entirely. Still, it's an impressive project and worth checking out.
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to announce the birth of a great monstrosity

"How about this: Why don’t we stop treating it as entirely normal that the more obviously one’s work benefits others, the less one is likely to be paid for it; or insisting that financial markets are the best way to direct long-term investment even as they are propelling us to destroy most life on Earth?"

https://intl.startrek.com/article/galaxy-of-trek-cheers-frasier-connections has a bunch more references, including this amusing one:
«Perhaps our favorite connection between the worlds of Cheers, Frasier, and Star Trek is Martin Crane’s famous, hideously upholstered, duct-taped recliner, which stood in contrast to his son Frasier’s refined taste in décor – and which symbolized the characters’ different approaches to life. The fabric from the chair actually came from leftovers in the Paramount warehouses from the set of the original Star Trek. We think it is pretty cool that two of TV’s most iconic chairs – that of Captain Kirk and that of Martin Crane – have a Trek-connection.»
