Please be obscure.

The common can survive without your help.

The obscure needs you.

The horror of an era replete with magic (technology) is that your choices matter. You can lose your life in here, gazing blankly into a whispering void. Or you can seize great power... wisdom of ages at your finger tips, should you know the correct incantations (search strings) to seek it. But noone will rescue you from the former, should you get distracted in your quest for the latter.

Not sure I can stay up for movie night. Sick yesterday, busy today, plate full tomorrow.

Got kiddo a desk lamp. (1970s transformer driven halogen with a nice sturdy switch in a suitably awful color combo.) It wasn't functional... So I did a verify debug. Every circuit path and switch functioned. So I put it back together and now it works. Partner is still boggling and trying to figure out which part I fixed. I didn't fix any part; all I did was ensure none of them had any excuses. :)

@​​​demonkind I meant the phrase "all in your mind. To merely #logoff the interface we imagined.

Russia Has ‘Oligarchs,’ the US Has ‘Businessmen’
In 150 NYT, CNN and Fox articles, ‘oligarch’ seems reserved for Slavic billionaires.

The flexible are unstoppable. Flexibility comes from class, not race. it may be possible they weren't on my Kodi remote control.

@klaatu listing individual features misses the point; the idea is that if the software you use every day can't do "view source" on any command you run, it's defective. if you can't edit the source and see the effects of your change immediately: also really missing the point of software.

#emacs only happens to be the most widespread instance of this philosophy being applied, and the one with the richest history and active community.

Another odd request but if I wanted to get a sizeable sample of the fungus Trichoderma reeseii how would I do that?

Phone security isn't just personal. It might be a friend or family member who your phone overhears watching a show or talking about something relevant to ad providers. Like medical conditions, or vulnerable emotional states. Don't be the one who carried a spy into the room in their pocket. Your own trustworthiness and honor is on the line.

Taking a sick day. It's always 'fun' figuring out why my immune system is on the warpath, but it seems like a cold today.

Retiring kiddo's tablet - real computers or bust, smalls. Want video time? Learn. Which means I need to prep it for sale. Gotta start moving stuff out the door around here.

Need to wipe old phone, swap the huge sd into the k1, move all my apps... And sew a liner to her flute (us_en: recorder) case.

Desk making is proceeding apace. I have no expertise but I can glue and clamp. She should have a better workspace by Monday, although it will still need stain and/or lacquer.

I totally ruined this

KMFDM is an initialism for the nonsensical and grammatically incorrect German phrase Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid, which, keeping the same word order, literally translates as "no majority for the pity", but is typically given the loose translation of "no pity for the majority".[2][5][6][7] In the original phrase, the articles preceding the nouns Mehrheit and Mitleid are inflected for the wrong gender, as the proper declension would be Keine Mehrheit für das Mitleid. Swapping the two nouns yields the grammatically correct Kein Mitleid für die Mehrheit, which translates directly as "no pity for the majority". In a 2003 interview, Konietzko explained the origins of the phrase:

"On the morning of February 29th, 1984 I woke up and went down to breakfast at a hotel in Paris. We had a show that night opening for an exhibition for young European artists. ... we needed a motto for the night so that we could make up some fliers and post them around. There was a German newspaper on the table and so I started cutting out words and threw them all into a cap. We picked a few of them out and it read "Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid". It's kinda improper German in regards to its translation but in the DA-DA-esque [sic] mindset of the early morning it made perfect sense. So when I was on my way back to Hamburg I'd mentioned it to Raymond [Watts]. He liked it but he was having difficulty pronouncing it correctly. So finally he said, 'Why don't you just call it KMFDM?' So that was it. We were KMFDM."[8]
