it was just writing a README, adding some TODO notes, fixing the build system and a couple of lines of python to make something take arguments

I pushed out some small bits of work on projects and I forgot how fucking lovely and satisfying programming is

Trent Reznor's "Capital G" still stands up as one of the best understanding of rich politician thought in media. Specifically:

""""I'm sick of hearing about the have's, and the have not's, have some personal, accountability
The biggest problem with the way that we've been doing things is: The more we let you have, the less that I'll be keeping for me""""

""""Don't give a shit, about the temperature in Guatemala, don't really see what all the fuss is about. Ain't gonna worry about no future generations and uh, I'm sure somebody gonna figure it out. Don't try to tell me how some power can corrupt a person, you haven't had enough to know what it's like. You're only angry cause you wish you were in my position, now nod your head because you know that I'm right, alright!""""

One doesn't have to be baptized in "Bob" to be saved! Members of rival cults who were unknowing, unsaved SubGeniuses in life will find themselves in SubGenius Hell -- which they'll naturally think is their Heaven. We may find among us rogue priests, misfit rabbis, deranged sufis, even some cops. All who were great SubGeniuses and Bold Surrealists without knowing it will join us in SubGenius Hell. You should assume that YOU still have to send the $35.

"boosts", are appreciated. Because "boosting" this "thread" simply enhances and adds to the power I can wield over the year. Boosting IS a contract and by "boosting" this "thread" you agree to send me 32 (thirty-two) TAX FREE DOLLARS by flying to Cardiff Airport via a PAN-AM flight.

As part of the start of the year I'm just saying that I don't plan to participate in this year whatsoever, that any percieved participation on my part is completely unintentional, and that this year can, in advance, go to literal hell.

thank you

[stirs the pot of alphabet soup] ah here are my rsync options for this particular task

So it turned out I relocated /lib64 (bound to my chroot lib64) to /ugly/lib64 and the binary was still looking for /lib64... ugh. I need to sleep

Why does LD_LIBRARY_PATH work when I have one library path but not work when I have more than one library path.

(A lot of data that's hierarchical doesn't need to be)

people say plaintext uses more data than non-plaintext, but a TSV file only needs \t and \n to store your data. For something that's non-hierarchical, it's ideal.

I upgraded my x200 and the graphics drivers broke, i.e. no openGL applications will run. So I can't play doom.
