Five items someone would put in a salt circle to summon me:
- a tankard of mead
- a yellow 3.5" floppy disk
- the engine head from a Datsun L-28
- a coyote pelt
- a meteorite fragment

Understand my words with full knowledge and reverence for my connection to the void.

My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

My data is not yours to own.

Part of the reason I made it big was to get some extra muscle memory room to make up for the lack of tactile feedback switches provide - a big 2592 x 1944 touch grid to check for blobs of light that your hands dance over.

(The other part of making it big was obviously showmanship)

The undeniable retro-modern appeal of cyberpunk aesthetics are a vector for messaging and culture that must be possessed and maintained by we freaks, lest they be used against us.

No one needs to starve. No one needs to freeze. No one needs to die. There is enough for everyone. More empty homes than all the people without them, more food than grocers can even sell. The labor and the materials to end scarcity exist now. It is not a far-off dream. We can end scarcity in this life.

Apple keeps on disabling uBlock Origin because it will "slow down my web browsing experience."

Pretty sure that even with its slight added overhead on page rendering, NOT having to render gigantic piles of advertising elements will be a net performance gain.

@TheGibson @Azure I had no idea wildcards worked in TLDs, nice! Similarly, -inurl:pinimg or -inurl:"pinterest." as per reddit.com/r/answers/comments/

Worse yet, Google used to have this feature.. in 2011: googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/0

You could exclude domains and it'd persistently apply wherever you signed in (not sure if it applied to Image Search, but probably did). Then it got left out of an update to search…

I've attempted casting a spell or two in my time, but to be honest, you can't get far in magic without having blood or hair. Fortunately, hellish incantations cover most of my needs.

@TheGibson Last Starfighter Sequel, but focusing entirely on the younger brother trying to get laid.

@thegibson what are they going to call it? The Not-Quite-Last-After-All Starfighter?

The Thought-They-Were-Last-But-Weren't-Really Starfighter?

:awesome:

It makes me happy that The Last Starfighter sequel looks like it is moving forward.
