"Cancel culture" criticism
Who could have guessed that the free speech absolutists who signed the Harper’s letter decrying cancel culture would immediately turn around and start trying to cancel the people criticizing the letter and their participation in it?
No one saw this coming. Except for everyone.
If this means I can get rid of GPG agent, then I am all for it.
On the Harper's "cancel culture" letter.
The problem is this privileged bunch of elites are upset that people are now actually willing to call out their bad ideas as bad.
I do wish it had better batch processing. If anything is going to get to me, I expect it will be that.
Zotero is pretty decent. It manages to be more help than hindrance in most cases, and even when it can't auto-fill stuff it's not difficult to add things manually.
I have a bunch of old manuals and magazine scans that it (understandably) can't find results for so I will just have to work my way through them.
Tomorrow I deal with my standing desk that has not worked for some time. I intend to get rid of it since, when I did try it, it felt like a gimmick more than anything else.
I set it to be a sitting desk and after a while I tried the standing thing again, but by then the motor mechanism just failed to work.
I expect it will be an annoying day tomorrow, but I think I need a desk that, well, works.
Went out with a midnight walk with my wife to see a bit of the penumbral eclipse, take a peek at Jupiter and Saturn with the new binoculars (I could easily see the four Galilean moon of Jupiter and the oblong shape of Saturn with the rings), as well as a quick look at the Andromeda galaxy.
Nice little viewing night.
This is Mr. Kitty. He was my wife's cat when we met and was a stellar companion for 19 years. This is our favourite picture of him, taken a few months before he died. My wife says this picture reveals his soul.
He loved to snuggle with my wife when she slept by curling up in her shoulder under her arm. He was an amazing cat.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
