I thought Dutton was turning over a new leaf?

His comments on the treatment of the Murugappan family are those of a complete and utter shitcunt.

Seriously, I was ready to give him a chance, being non-partisan, but looks like Libs = bunchacunce.

Follow requests: if you have no profile, no toots, I will reject. Please don't be that person. You are joining a community, do the right thing. Don't be shy, we are nice!

If you are a bot, however, you can fuck right off.

@zens I just tried to respond, my client said 4 hours to go, but got a 422 poll closed error. (Now I have to check the RFC to see the regular definition of 422.) To move an appointment to LATER is to move it BACK would have been my vote. Because meetings with my boss it's happening All. The. Fucking. Time. (Because he is pretty much surgixally attached to his phone.)

@Posty betterbat has been my cheapest source for batteries. Got a refurb Thinkpad for less than $200, Win 10 Pro on a new SSD. Battery was BUGGERED, but a very cheap fix.

Reminds me that I need to update my HP Ultrabook (Ubuntu.)

@Posty Is that an old Thinkpad? They're the best!

I take it you use/used RedHat for work? Otherwise a slightly unusual choice for personal, but I can see better the devil you know, if so.

@screenbeard I have so far resisted the temptation of visiting that site. Sounds worse than Seeed Studio.

Was a bit miffed to see a toot that hadn't CW/d politics, but then realised it was the European Commission, so...

@bean Yes, on both counts. And a nice, big crossbench, which is something new.

Feels kind of weird, but my disability parking permit has arrived. Often, I won't need it but, on the days I do, I really do.

Guess that means I'm OFFICIALLY disabled.

Based on a YouTube recommendation, whilst I was looking the last toot up, looking for video, I have been recommended Mariska, rapper (and other genres.)

Couple of rock numbers I liked, not sure that I get on with her voice in the early rap recordings.

Hmm. Just sampled some more later work.

Think I'm just not in the mood, but definitely need to follow up.

Here's the YouTube topic. Looks like most, if not all, albums are provided officially as playlists under this topic: youtube.com/channel/UCczYsnufg

Evangelising about some awesome Finnish music over on :birdsite: so might as well share over here, too.

What happens when you mix rap with prog rock? The album Olisinpa täällä by Pyhimys and SAIMAA is what.

A sample:

beer, Ukraine 

Enjoying a can of Puck Futin, just spotted the Cyrillics on the side - червоні очі, (Chervoni ochi.) Ahhh - red eyes. That must be the local name, and explains the label drawing!

Recipe shared by Ukraine's Правда (Pravda) brewery.

Damn shame that my 12 cans are all that I'll ever get to see, because I really like it.

Love that a simple swipe of the space bar on my iPad has me into Ukranian Cyrillic.

@JacksonBates If the house is all on one phase, there is always power line networking.

Realised you can't see the name of the beer, Puck Futin in the shot, but in the image description.

beer, Ukraine 

Puck Futin! Australian brewed, very limited edition, red ale, to a Ukranian recipe. Rather pleasant. Proceeds to Ukranian charity. I don't know what's with the green skinned, red eyed (zombie?) diver, though. Surely a John Deere towing a tank...

@mike I think I've seen it, and will raise you I can't remember ANYTHING about it, including what it was about.

I know I've got the severly deficient deficient autobiographical memory shit, but that's extreme for even me. So it can't have made much of an impression.

Fuck video “documentation” and write a goddamn user manual

One of the things that draws me to is the community. I'm still very much learning and, no matter what the question, there's always a prompt, and helpful answer on the Gophers Slack channel.

Also very lucky that I'm able to learn on-the-job. I was engaged as a generalist; here, this is the language we're going to use, learn it as you go.
