When you type ./configure, the GNU Build System automatically spends the next ten minutes reminiscing about every major and minor unix variant created since 1971

Update from the admins: we noticed an outage this morning and were able to remediate the issue. Seems our root file system was choking on its own log files. Things are back up, and we're looking into how to slow the growth in the future. Thanks for your patience!

Anyone who wants to see what the world would look like if all tech were tightly controlled by industry groups need only look at the nonsense and bullshit in the average home theater.

@Stronae welcome to , a Mastodon instance so small and intimate we still announce new members by hand. Everyone, @Stronae is an old friend of mine and a brilliant and mathematical and technical mind. He's going to fit right in around here.

@neauoire I started watching this series of videos today, and immediately thought of you. I kinda think I might get myself some breadboards and work through these myselves. Always wanted to design the machine I'd have used when I was a kid. youtube.com/watch?v=LnzuMJLZRd

It's 2020. Why does it feel like such a goddamned miracle every time I get the network printer to work?

Something that's been weird during lockdown is how much I've stopped using social media. I get up, I drink tea, I work, I do stuff with the fam, I game, I go to bed. At a time when people seem to be suing social media more, I'm using it far, far less.
