when cats do this with their tails, boost if you agree

I should go shopping for good work togs but my cat is snuggling on my arm, what do??

"When a comm builds atop a fault line, do you blame its walls when they inevitably crush the people inside? No; you blame whoever was stupid enough to think they could defy the laws of nature forever. Well, some worlds are built on a fault line of pain, held up by nightmares. Don't lament when those worlds fall. Rage that they were built doomed in the first place."

I always find Low Tech Magazine thought-provoking. They've now built a totally solar-powered mini-bandwidth web site. Shooting for 90% uptime. See how they did it.

I'm going to take a nap with the cat curled up in the crook of my leg

*slaps the roof of a Trojan horse* this thing can fit so many soldi... Er, nothing. There's nothing in it. No sir, you misheard.

@renatolond is @crossposter 🐘 -> 🐦 still working? My recent toots have not gone through. (No @'s in them.)

Finished _The Stone Sky_, but will hold off on thoughts till I re-read. Perhaps the most unbearable part is its hopefulness, at a time when I would rather smash the world apart. Anyway now must sleep.

Yet another Sukkot where I'm too chicken to build the world's ugliest sukkah out of election campaign signs on the front lawn

I must wake up the cat so I can take the duvet cover off to wash it. :(

@sailor_andy if I knew him personally, maybe...but I'm just some random Linux user talking about a public figure. *shrug*

@sailor_andy after years of failed interventions, it was being contacted by the press that did it. He doesn't seem to show real understanding of why what he did was wrong. So I think Linux devs and users have the right to be skeptical that he is acting in good faith

@dogtrax I've surprised them several times! They'll readily spray dogs, but it really is a last resort.

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
