Because of how much current geek culture is embodied in, and referenced via, xkcd comics, this is a rather larger issue than it would initially seem.

@feonixrift Until Monroe addresses this issue himself, I can recommend explainxkcd.com . It has good transcripts of what is depicted, as well as explanations for those who lack the knowledge to get the jokes.

Lass dich impfen wenn du kannst, trag deine fucking Maske überall, sorg für Safe Spaces die auch für behinderte zugänglich und safe sind oder wir sind sowas von nicht im selben Team.

Weil ich Geschichtsbücher tatsächlich lese, habe ich für "linke", die jetzt in der Coronapandemie eugenische/sozialdarwinistische Denk- und Verhaltensweisen an den Tag legen ausschließlich Verachtung übrig.

i mean the other thing is just the general lack of UX interoperability and user backward compability

to be fair, our* experience with interface ergonomics has increased significantly, but like, a lot of it is just moving shit around for no reason in particular

software manufacturers, especially the big OS vendors, changing design- and UX paradigms every couple of years is hell for computer literacy

it would be better if all software just looked kinda dated but at least consistent

climate catastrophe 

Water levels along the Rhine river are extremely low right now, threatening to take out industries and transportation / supply lines that rely on ships. This could be a big problem for countries like Switzerland who receive a large portion of imports via ship. dw.com/en/low-water-again-thre

It can also exacerbate the problem by moving all of the freight that was previously transported by ship to trucks, thus increasing CO₂ emissions significantly.

I got some #colorlight #fpga input mod flex PCBs with me.

They are based on disasm's hc245t-bypass.
github.com/Disasm/hc245t-bypas

With them you can turn the output only ports into inputs. They also feature optional ESD protection diodes.

If you want some, just call MRBL (6725).

Some people have asked if they can help a little with my debt.

So its my birthday soon! (21st July) so if you'd buy me a drink irl could you maybe consider sending £3 instead to help me pay some debt off?

The three smallest ones I have remaining are
£677
£317
£349

Thank you 💜
