Oh damn! My High School had hundreds of NeXTs. i learned early programming in MUDD/MUSH worlds. Discovered Usenet, and so much more.

Such a cool find!

USA. “Trust us. We're a world power and want only what's best for everyone.”

Everyone. “Sign on to the ICC. Follow internationally accepted laws.”

USA. Waving hands. "Oh no no no no no. Sorry can't do that. Too risky.” More hand waving. "no. gods no.”

@petes_bread_eqn_xls yeah we made do with a swamp cooler for years (as did the previous owners) using it only on the hottest days.

I get that GRRM and what's his face have burned readers with series that don't finish, but it bums me out so many readers seem to be "I'll start reading when the series is complete.”

I get it, but that's a sure fire way to ensure a series doesn't get completed. Trad publishers will kill a series if it’s not "performing” in a heartbeat. Even with indie publishing, a lot of authors give a series 2-3 books and kill it if it's not selling.

Readers, take a chance!

iPad Pro users. "We want something closer to, or just, MacOS”
Apple. "Look we made it thinner.”
Us. "Ok, but a more powerful desktop class or hybrid OS would be great. Scaled up iOS isn't really very Pro.”
Apple. "But... thinner. Games are even better on this one.”

I really do wonder what the breakdown of iPad Pro users is. How many buy one just to or mostly play games?
How many are doing movie production?
How many want something that's laptop power, but more portable?

"The pile beside my bed never shrinks; at the bottom of the stack are books I've been planning to crack open for months. My shelves remain full of lingering aspirations," writes the Walrus's Michelle Cyca. She looks at the problem of unread books, and the difficulty in offloading our libraries. What do you do with your unwanted books?

@CultureDesk @bookstodon have moved too many times. Only paper books left have meaning. Everything else is ebook and/or library borrows.

It's a bummer that Biden seems to be doing everything he can to ensure a specific segment (or two) at best, abstain, at worst, vote for Trump.

Democrats can’t help being Republican lite, at the worst possible times.

jwilker,
@jwilker@wandering.shop avatar

@scottag It was tone deaf. It was "Protest in ways that don't bother anyone.”

It was also followed by him explicitly saying the protests had no impact on his thinking about Israel, which is ... well more and more folks are feeling less and less pro Israel. Or at least less pro Bibi.

While Biden is still pro both while nearly 40k people have been killed. Starvation runs rampant, etc. etc.

Biden's speach shoulda been. "I see the problem. Here's how I plan to address this. not shame on you.”

I hate that both sides are like “Look we're protecting you" RE: banning TikTok…

No you aren’t. The problem isn't TikTok

The problem is tech companies feeling like they have exclusive, inalienable right to every scrap of data about their users, including tracking us across platforms. Tracking what we like, who we communicate with, etc. and then doing what they like with it, including selling it to other tech companies.

We need user privacy and data protection across the board!

Imagine a CNN host declaring that Ukrainian journalists don't count as journalists because they aren't "independent."

I dislike the Israeli government and military as much as anyone. But if your response to the UK shooting down drones that would have otherwise hit civilians is to think we should have left the drones to do their thing… Have a word.

jwilker,
@jwilker@wandering.shop avatar

@RobW I hate how murky and polarizing this is. I don't want innocent Israeli's hurt or innocent anyone else. I hate that governments put their people in harm’s way :(

Weather is wreaking havoc all over the planet. Getting worse each year.

Republicans, “yeah I’d still vote for a convicted criminal.”

They won’t be happy until we’re all dead.
