USPol, police, murder 

There's an old cliche about activists calming down as they get older.

I find the opposite to be true. The older I get, the more sensible the idea of just tearing all the bullshit down and holding every oppressor accountable seems.

I'm in the mood to admire some artwork. Let's check out the illustrations in this old birdsite tutorial thread about how to nullify a tear gas canister.

Does anybody know of a way to get swype-style typing on Linux? I have a rugged x86 tablet that has a rather interesting touchscreen. It is essentially a drawing tablet, it can even be configured with the same tools. OSK typing is kind of a pain with a stylus and I would love to be able to do it faster. Any suggestions?

This drive was in my first DOS-based PC in the early 1990s. I've kept it in a spare bay in every main PC of mine since, or to put it another way I'm still using the same PC which occasionally has all the other parts replaced. (Shoutout to the Ship of Theseus.)

Was it selfish of me to continually deny Barry White enough of my love for all those years?

@thegibson Not at all! HOPE will be different, but it will still BE and we're still taking submissions.

Happy birthday to, an author whose work I deeply appreciate.

If you're at all into grownup stories with various levels and flavors of dark and supernatural edge to them, you should definitely check out her work.
