Chuck aka "lazyPower"

I recently realized my dream of launching a job on Hyak (the supercomputer run by the University of Washington) on Hyak (the Washington State ferry).

So I tried enabling the blue tint mode on my laptop to reduce eye strain: it works!
Every time I get on my laptop, I see the icky orange hue's and think, "ugh, this looks awful, I'll go do something else."

@deadsuperhero Was there ever an iphone app created for disapora? Asking for a friend.

This is a bit depressing.

This underlying problem needs to become a priority. Either pressuring #github to go free software or getting free software to go elsewhere.

Github becoming synonymous with open source just muddies free software waters more.

Free Software needs free tools.

Here's a powerful statement extracted from Rolling Stone Magazine from Tim Bergling (aka Avicii). May he be at peace.

“None of us today can fucking handle our emotions – most of us are running around being reactive,” he said.

Thats deceptively impactful.

“Does free speech mean literally anyone can say anything at any time? Or is it actually more conducive to the free exchange of ideas if we create a platform where women and people of color can say what they want without thousands of people screaming, ‘Fuck you, light yourself on fire, I know where you live’?

@iliana @feld That's like saying people don't need PGP for email because SMTP is usually done over TLS, or that we don't need package signing because packages are fetched over https. They serve different purposes.

Wait, what. Windows 10 sends info on USB devices plugged in directly to Microsoft?

And it does that using pure HTTP?

You gotta be kidding me.

I took a mental health day today and spent it in a salon getting trimmed, cut, and pampered.

This is truly something I wish I could do more of.

I also never thought having started off in the workforce as a construction and factory worker that i would progress to this level.

I want to take this opportunity to thank every mentor, and influencer who saw the potential in a driven geek finding his place in the world.

:blobcheerbounce: cheers everybody.
