Have you considered the Use Case where the User is angry with you, doesn't like you, doesn't like your Product (tm), thinks your entire socio-economic class are measurably making everything worse and accelerating a global slide into fascism, genocide and extinction, and is only sullenly interacting with your Product (tm) at the cracking point of the harsh whip of capitalism because they will lose the ability to eat if they do not

because you might find that's quite a large class of users

Framework | Framework Laptop pre-orders are now open. Interesting device. You can replace/upgrade just about anything inside it, even use the graphics card in an eGPU if that takes your fancy. If you plan on running it from the gallium nitrate charger only, the internal battery can be disconnected. Lots more to love about this device. Linus Tech Tips on YouTube has a fine report on the thing.


The older I get, the more TISM’s Whatareya resonates with me.

I’m a wanker, obvs. I think if the answer to “are you on Mastodon” is a yes, then…yeah.

I am being a Very Lazy Parent on the last day of school holidays and the kids are all just chilling on various screens. I feel very guilty about this.

If you can't handle me at my Pinky ... you don't deserve me at my Brain.

Played Nemesis with 5 players last night. It was great fun. Took ~forever though (7 hours), because 5 is a lot of people for that game, and we were all but one complete newbies to the game.

Lots of fun twists and turns, some great late-game betrayals and secret objective failures, and scary aliens. I loved it. Really really fun. And great theme.

gather 'round, friends, let me share some super dreamy fantasy and supernatural (and science fiction) books that i loved or am highly anticipating i'll love that have come out recently


"It means every instance of Kaspersky Password Manager in the world will generate the exact same password at a given second. This would be obvious to spot if every click on the “Generate” button, in the password generator interface, produced the same password. However, for some reason, password generation is animated: dozens of random chars are displayed while the real password has already been computed. This animation takes more than 1 second, so it is not possible to click several times on the “Generate” button within a second. That is definitely why the weakness had not been discovered before."




Given what a shining success the privatisation of COVID vaccinations to aged care staff has been, I see no problems here.

I’m confident this definitely won’t simply be a giant transfer of public funds to private corporations.
