I can’t stress this enough. You’re honestly being asked for your opinion. Don’t just get angry on Twitter, pointless. Take 1 minute now to make it clear you want Senator Lambie to stop Dutton’s latest trampling of the rights of refugees in detention here: senatorlambie.com.au/advise_ja twitter.com/jacquilambie/statu

boomer moment: 

@mike @Nikolai_Kingsley I’ve done both.

Also other stuff like two guitars.

I’ve set my phone to disable eBay and Amazon apps at night. As I sleep bought some things.

I’m just saying, a transgender person taking a piss in a bathroom has never done 7 million dollars worth of damage

"We didn't call it fuzzing back in the 1950s, but it was our standard practice to test programs by inputting decks of punch cards taken from the trash.

We also used decks of random number punch cards. We weren't networked in those days, so we weren't much worried about security, but our random/trash decks often turned up undesirable behavior.

Every programmer I knew used the trash-deck technique."

Avengers: Infinity War but at the end when Thanos snaps his fingers half of all life disintegrates into pink glittery dust and Peter Parker's last words are "it's a girl!"

Someone please make this.

Hi. If you're gonna fucking tell somebody to google (or duckduckgo or whatever) something when they ask for help, just shut the fuck up. Most people know perfectly well how to search for shit, and if they're not finding things, they'll turn to the people instead of the shitty search engines. You're insulting their intelligence, and you're making them feel shitty about needing help. Everybody starts somewhere. If you've got the knowledge, share it! Help others! Quit putting them down!

It takes time to register on forums, it takes time to post the question, it takes time to figure out how to explain the problem. And if they're going through that process, there's a good fucking chance that they've already exhausted their search options, and are probably frustrated.

So just don't. You're being an asshole and nobody whatsoever ever appreciates being told "here let me google that for you" or "go google it" or any of that. If you have the knowledge, share it. Otherwise, shut. The. Fuck. Up.

Filled and sanded. Just need to treat the wood where I’ve sanded down the toothpicks.

Finally my Fender locking tuners have arrived.

My guitar upgrade projects are one of few things that’s keeping me sane.

@Nikolai_Kingsley

I’ll add it.

I need to work on the code a little as it’s a cut a paste from a couple of open source projects.

I've been having fun with e-ink displays and Oblique Strategies.

I only noticed my spelling mistake as I took the photo.

I need to work out how to get it to word wrap better.
