I feel like if China can fly a spy balloon over the US without the military immediately noticing, we're pretty much guaranteed to lose a war with them should that ever happen.

"The size of three buses" is more than enough to hoist a nuke over the US.

Why have ICBMs when you can hover your bombs right over their targets?

The military would basically be liked "Sir, radar has picked up som..." *BOOM*


Don't forget to filter "RT @" to get rid of the crossposted RTs.

If the crossposter still even works, Elon did make a mess of API support.

@rockylhotka A large number of home routers today have OpenVPN baked into them.

It's pretty straightforward to get set up, and when you connect an outside device in tunnel-all mode, it's like you're connected to your own home network when accessing the Internet.

If you only have to connect once per month to "check in", it should be fairly trivial to avoid issues.

@Chronotope Personally I can't find a real use for 3-5TB of personal cloud storage.

I'm not actively sharing that amount of data, and the data I want to safely archive is stored redundantly on SSDs and BD-Rs that I store in my home and safe deposit box.

it seems obvious from how easily these geologists were tricked that geology is fake, and rocks don't exist

there are #QR #code #posters here in #Melbourne for #reporting #graffiti to the #council - and #someone has been #printing their own and #carefully #placing them over the #official ones
they lead to a #documentary on #hiphop/graffiti #culture
it's perfect #because the QR posters are #uglier than any bit of #street #art

If Newsmax wanted to be on DirecTV, they wouldn’t have asked for carriage fees. Point of matter.


@bizzacore @therobburgessshow Very true. There is something about fascism that makes the other side of the spectrum seem more appealing. When the far-right keeps screaming about the threat of Communism, it makes people consider if we should make good on that threat since it's clearly an existential threat to their cause.

@therobburgessshow Liberalism/Neoliberalism is more accepting of the Capitalist status quo. There are very few Democrats who will argue against that status quo.

I will still side with establishment Liberals over establishment Conservatives, but I'm not a fan of the establishment, if that makes sense.

@therobburgessshow I've definitely become less liberal between my mid-20's to mid-30's, but only in the sense that I've become explicitly leftist.

Very proud of my fitness accomplishments.

I average 150 miles of walking per month!

One of those music recognition services that works with humming, but for 90's MIDI files so I can find a file I really liked from my childhood.

the stock market 

@halcy Me and my one share of Meta stock that I don't remember buying.

@Alex Do you want to know why?

Because they get up to 50% comission regardless if customers get scammed or return the product.

#Amazon's interests are aligned against it's customers.
Not just #consumers, but same goes with #B2B customers:

The best part about working from home is access to my kitchen.

I'm pretty proud of my ability to cook, and I live right by a grocery story, so rather than hit a local restaurant with coworkers like I used to, I can just make a quick shopping trip, throw together a recipe, and have a high-quality meal for pennies on the dollar from my old pre-2020 habits.

There are good restaurants in my neighborhood too, but it's nice to keep leveling up my culinary skills!

@pnwres My dog Lily is also a notorious toy destroyer, and we thought giving her more robust toys would give her more a a challenge.

Then she started damaging her teeth because she was too determined to destroy any toy we gave her...

Amazing that Amazon has billions of dollars of computing infrastructure, is diving head-first into machine learning and AI, and yet you can search "16TB SSD" on their storefront and find countless options under $50 because they really don't give a single shit if their customers are getting scammed.

Curiosity got the best of me, and I decided to investigate .eth domains.

Not interested in actually using them, or owning one, just wanted to see how they work.

Conclusion: They don't actually work. You either need a special browser, or a browser extension, and they redirect you elsewhere on the actual web.

Literally no way to actually host anything at those domains. Nothing after the '/' will ever do anything.

Web3 is such a joke. I can't believe anyone actually takes it seriously.

Apparently people don't just like emulated calculators in the browser - they love it, and want more.

So come enjoy the CALCULATOR DRAWER, a dozen plus emulated calculators and (where I could find them) the manuals. Get calculating!


@inoneear RE-PC & 3R have hooked me up with some great stuff over the years!

Currently hunting for a better 1U server to host my personal VMware hypervisor on, and a Apple Powerbook G4 to run MorphOS on.

Didn't find what I was looking for during my recent visit to RE-PC, but I did find a couple of silly nerd toys to play with.

Need to make a trip to Kent soon to see what 3R has to offer.
