the guy who lives next to me has a dog with terrible separation anxiety, and howls frequently when her owner leaves her behind.
he doesn't do anything about it because it doesn't affect him (since, ya know, he's not there when it happens) but there's only so much that i can do to assuage her by poking my nose through the gap in the fence and calling her name.
i just feel sad for the dog who is stressed out and howling every day because her owner just doesn't care enough to help her
one of the biggest problems with our approach to positive initiatives like reducing water consumption, fighting climate change, proper recycling etc. is that the onus is always placed entirely on the end user/private citizen
if you work in basically any industry for more than a couple of years, you can see that you can't trust people to do things properly, if at all
we'll never get to a great recycling target, reduce or reverse climate change, or see improvements in our water usage if we don't target the producers of things that harm the world
why put the responsibility on the individual to save the world, when we can regulate the production of the things that damage it in the first place
@seanmunger is this a book about urine because with the colour of the water in this picture it looks like a very warm tide indeed
auspol, aps, freedom of speech, etc
reading through the high court judgement handed down (the "freedom of speech" one) and it seems extremely even handed in its reasoning, rational, and understandable
i really wish that journalists would report these issues more faithfully instead of writing up ragebait for leftists. i can't understand how anyone could read through the judgement and think that there was any way that the defendant was in the right here

the lack of webserver i can deal with since i'm mostly using docker/nginx instead of apache these days, but i like self hosting emails for the various domains i have and my webhosting background makes using cPanel/WHM easy.
guess it's time for me to look into self hosted email servers. anyone know any good (preferably #FOSS) imap/smtp servers?
