Bilingual packaging is great because it's easy to ignore the English "cheeze" and focus on the much better French "fauxmage."

actual serious take about communism and tech: computers could have been revolutionary and still are in many small ways but these are accidental growths of a system designed to oppress us and what we've seen over the last 2 decades is an establishment DESPERATE to prune those growths through social media and closed ecosystems

open source is 100% not the answer tech dudes think it is, but the way companies are re-training us to think about computers is a fundamental evil

How to get the current time in seconds-since-the-epoch with awk:

awk 'BEGIN {srand(); print srand()}'

I'm pan and also cute the only thing keeping me from world domination is the fact that I'm not interested so the adhd won't let me

mh and software 

i'm super depressed this weekend so i'm just going to spend the whole thing drinking coffee and working on my cursed calculator programming language

the world definitely needs more stack-based programming languages lol.

In every computer science program, the last test you have to pass goes roughly like this:

1) Find a tech support forum.

2) Wait for a post that goes something like, "Hello everyone! Yesterday, I finally became a grandparent! Sadly, my laptop won't connect to the internet to download the new baby pictures. Can anyone help me?"

3) Respond with something sufficiently alienating and dismissive, such as: "ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew are your friend, lol"

4) Congratulations, you pass!

food adj 

getting irrationally angry at how the grocery store self checkout pronounces cilantro

STOP you sound like my grandmother who'd never had a taco and called them tack-os

love getting nearly hit by a car, then waved through with an expression that says "i am being very Generous to let you go"

work 

it's one of those days i just want to get mysteriously lost and not show up at work and nobody knows where i am

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you
