Just remembering how as a teenager I wrote an unzip program in Turbo Pascal for the hell of it, and how *satisfying* that sort of thing is when it finally works.

“[Stallman] has sincere regrets, especially at how anger toward him personally has negatively impacted the reputation and mission of FSF.”

His most noteworthy “regret” is about others’ anger? He’s learned *nothing*.

“I’m sorry you got upset” is not an apology. What a joke. This statement is simultaneously trash and also super clarifying about what the FSF stands for and what —and who— they value.

I found this book about queer little people. Do any of you know any?

A bit of non elder scrolls lore that I really liked: It's canon that in Goose Game a goose drove Thatcher out of office and the villagers you torment are all Marxists

I just discovered what woodchip is! My bedroom in the house where I grew up had it (painted orange). I never knew the name, or even considered whether it had one beyond "wallpaper".

In "Disco 2000" I'd always assumed it meant fibreboard.

Pylons (electricity towers); clowns

I went looking in the hope that such a place existed, and was not disappointed.

It amazes and angers me so much that languages across the world are being undermined and going extinct at such a high rate because of the online world.

There is no justifiable reason that all languages aren't provided for digitally. "Big-tech" makes billions and they can't spend thousands to pay translation and localisation to help the world.

Instead it's English 1st, major languages 2nd and everyone else waits for scraps.

Hey y'all. It's my 30th birthday next week and I'm looking to raise $200 to cover gas, food and dogsitting.

Help an enby Latinx enjoy a few days of actual peace while paying a trans femme to watch my sweet pup child 🌈

Bunny with rainbow fur. They are tall and very thin. Their tail is short. Their hair is azure, very long, straight and fades into silver. Their eyes are chocolate and they wear small scarlet glasses. Their most interesting features are their magical powers, their good sleeping habits and their good deeds.

If you have sevenpence to spare, and you happen to live in 1926, why not invest in a copy of Crusoe or Sunny?

(I'm impressed that they managed to avoid explicit gendering.)
