Hello World 2.0!
New account. Same screaming into the void.
baby boomer stuff, racism ment
Awkward reminder that racism is basically as prevalent in white millenials as in white boomers. Research suggests that racist boomers propagated their beliefs to their kids. A lot of the most important fash media personalities are white millenials (Milo, Tomi, Shapiro, PewDiePie).
U.S. millennials poll as less racist than boomers because more of them are PoC. The "racism will end when the old people die" argument only works if racists aren't permitted to keep passing down their beliefs without social cost. Deplatform bigots if you get the chance, and if you hear something racist, say something.
The time has come in the project where I have once more run out of back-endy type code to write and must now contend with writing the front-end UI for the web app.
I know I shouldn't think this, but I hate the part where my code needs to actually interact with a human being and not my pretty pretty unit tests.
In Hong Kong, a cyberpunk protester is using a custom-made "laser gun" while wearing a silver blanket, to reduce his IR signature and hide from thermal imaging equipment...
Watching a tutorial where the speaker is constantly switching between the mouse and keyboard to click into different parts of the code and it's driving me up the wall.
Facebook takes down this image from the #hongkong protests.
You know what to do.
long trains story
i heard this story about a train line in japan where they were going to close one of the stops due to lack of ridership but there was this one little girl who lived there and there was no other way for her to get to primary school so they removed the train stop officially but the train would still stop there just for her and she rode it all through middle school and high school until she turned 18 and moved away and i think about that a lot, like, that’s the attitude i feel like we should have towards public transit in general
@southpoleviews Is probably my favorite bot on here. I've been following the screenshots from the south pole stations all summer. Ships came last spring and for a long while it was pretty quiet, but now there's a flurry of activity.
These are my favorites from the last few days.

Freedom of movement is probably one of the least defended and worst supported of the constitutional rights. It really should've been interpreted as something similar to a right-to-roam.
I'm a pretty big fan of fence hoping. And in my college days probably wandered through every office building in downtown Sioux Falls at one point or another just to check out the views.
Chatting with some old friends about an ancient phpBB that we still host but no one really posts on anymore.
Started discussing archival. Since it's an old version of PHP it's just a matter of time before it becomes difficult to host it.
So are there good tools out there that we could use to crawl and convert the entire monstrosity into a static site for posterity?
