OH: Making mistakes is humans but to really fuck shit up you need a computer
When you purge your own party's left, sell out to big business, endorse a genocide, and run purely on "hey at least we're not the other guy" this is the kinda shit that happens:
One interesting this about the #Rochdale by-election is that David Anthony Tully came second (with double the vote of any of the mainstream parties)... running as an independent, Tully's (4 week) campaign seems to have been about asserting a locally-defined #politics.
The Q. is how big an element in the next election will be these sort(s) of independents - if Rochdale is anything to go by, non-mainstream/ non-party locals may have an unusually good chance of gaining significant votes?
Yesterday the IDF attacked unarmed hungry people seeking aid and killed over 100 in #Gaza
The Pentagon has now confirmed 25,000 women and children killed in Gaza.
Noone in their right minds can possibly still defend this.1/4
The worst thing about this is that Google would just treat $2.3bn as “cost of doing business”. That’s how big they are. The solution is not individual action against them, even by other corporations: the answer is effective and proactive anti-monopoly law.
please stop presenting using light mode as something worth mocking or a worse experience
very often light mode is an accessibility and readability feature
some people just can't read on dark backgrounds well for example
or need higher contrast in general
or just work in a high-brightness environment where light mode just works better for them

"Netanyahu says Israel ‘will do our best’ to evacuate civilians ahead of Rafah operation "
"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday said Israeli forces have a plan to evacuate civilians out of harm’s way in the Gaza city of Rafah and eliminate the forces of the militant Palestinian group Hamas in the southern city. "

I wonder if people will ponder the fact that people in Ukraine and Gaza go through this on a DAILY basis.
The recent Indian mission to the moon got a soft landing but was tipped upside down.
Now the private funded US mission has... Fallen over!
I'm beginning to see a pattern! I think the Clangers have really got it in for all the visitors they're getting!
Aw yeah ban teens from social media but make it legal for them to work the night shift in the cold chopping room at the meat-chopping factory.
These kids will hate us all forever and we will deserve it.
The active shooter drills, failing to protect trans teens, taking their damn phones, burning their books and sending them to the factory. Fail fail fail fail fail.
U.S. Republicans, following orders from ex-President Donald Trump, are blocking arms deliveries to Ukraine, subjecting troops to “ammo starvation” with immediate, deleterious effects on the battlefield.
After taking Bakhmut and Avdiivka, Russian troops are now trying to press their advantage in the directions of Marinka, Robotyne and Kreminna, according to battlefield observers.
European leaders, despite having become Ukraine’s chief material backers, are failing to fill the gap in military supplies left by the U.S. and, thanks to France, insisting on “Buy European” provisions despite a lack of manufacturing capacity and refusing to shop outside the bloc for shells.
Meanwhile Putin, who’s still very much in power despite efforts to sanction his regime into submission, is ramping up his campaign of intimidation against the West.
In his interview with ex-Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the Russian leader mentioned Poland more than a dozen times, placing the NATO member squarely within his vision for Grand Russia, and his deputy prime minister has started to make threatening noises toward the Norwegian leadership of the island of Svalbard, in the Arctic Ocean, of all places.

Mastodon may not be as big as some other social networks. And it may not have as many celebrities & "influencers."
But it sure is a nice place to engage with curious, thoughtful & interesting folks in ways that I haven't experienced elsewhere online.
Rather than a chaotic circus, #Mastodon uniquely feels like a (mostly) friendly neighborhood.

Roblox on Linux Mint 21.3
Up until 20/2 roblox was working fine on my Linux Mint system, on 21/2 it stopped working, I have made a blog post below which may make sense to someone out there.
As Roblox is a windows executable, I am using grapejuice, which I think is some sort of wrapper using wine so that Roblox works on Linux (or in my case Linuxmint)
There is some info here
I am making this post as another pair of eyes and expertise may shed some light on why it has suddenly just stopped working. It runs, I get a dialogue up to say it is loading, this then vanishes. I have also run the command (output shown on post too) in the terminal so the output can be displayed, I just can't see much other than the one error.
Thanks for any help.
BREAKING: AT&T has reportedly suffered a nationwide mobile failure, affecting voice, text, and data, and preventing calls to 911 centers, who are now advising callers to use LANDLINES!
And THIS situation -- as I have previously discussed -- as AT&T is attempting to kill landline and other non-wireless services here in California.
I just hope nobody dies or is seriously injured by this AT&T-created disaster.
