well, not really in touch but you know..
I love how "The cloud" only means "Stack together as many undocumented proprietary daemons together, and make the user pay very high tier prices for each and every of them, without providing them with any effective tooling to start on their infrastructure, or remove themselves from it"
So you basically have to pay high-grade courses to start with them, then you have to pay even more to extract all your data somewhere else
The US is right to think that Cuba has the ability to fuck with them, judging from how abysmally the CIA has failed to produce a coup there despite ceaseless efforts over the years. In practically every conflict with Cuba, however many times the US has cried hot salty tears, Cuba's managed to come out on top, that is, has managed to maintain stellar relationships with plenty of other countries, has killer healthcare and education systems, etc. Watching the US cry over it is priceless.

Armed chuds threatened with guns, shot with paintballs, and lobbed shit from the garages at people in downtown Portland today. They were given a large police escort to leave. https://tweets.newsbots.eu/kohzkah/status/1315423389364953088
The #IRS, which has been hobbled by the US administration, has still not processed 2.5 million 2019 tax returns (not to mention the stimulus payments they have not made) https://www.fool.com/taxes/2020/10/11/the-irs-still-hasnt-processed-25-million-2019-tax/
A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”
It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”
It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)
By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.
And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

What a lot of people fail to understand--and are failing to prepare for--is that most of the Right Wing will only accept one "legitimate outcome to the 2020 election." And that outcome is a Trump victory. https://tweets.newsbots.eu/rickhasen/status/1304845712228642816
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
