Started this morning. Completed this evening. (It's based on a concept and architecture I use a lot at work, mind.)

My computer is not your billboard 

Ever heard of people having a problem with procrastination? I wonder if there was anything constantly trying to grab their attention. Imagine if websites tried to keep them "engaged" for as long as possible.

But no, must be something wrong with all those people.

My computer is not your billboard 

I don't consent to downloading, executing or viewing your ads. You are not entitled to my time, my attention, my computer.

I don't care how much you want the money. How much you say you need it. If you don't want me freeloading, put a paywall; I might not pay, but I don't object to being denied a webpage. I object to ads.

There are no acceptable or ethical ads. Ads are distractions, annoyances, disruptions. They interfere with people's work, fun, mental health.

"I don't, per se, dislike C so much as I dislike the cruft that's accumulated around it and the fact that libc looks and feels very much like it was hacked together by a bunch of random dudes over the course of a few decades rather than being designed. Which is, of course, exactly what happened."

Holy fuck! This crypto shit is going literally everywhere.

The more I see the world of the future, the more I'm glad I'll be dead soon.

Is there any way in Mastodon to just say "I don't want to see this post"? I can see options to mute the poster, kill the server it comes from, etc. but nothing to just take an individual post from my feed.

My review of FreeBSD 13 on a Raspberry Pi 4B: <TheCritic>IT STINKS!</TheCritic>

This is, to me, the perfect example of end-user contempt. Of doing the absolute minimum to say "we did this" without actually doing it properly. It's the very antithesis of software ENGINEERING and the apotheosis of cowboy coding as the height of programming style.

I'll be documenting the whole experience on my journal, but the TL;DR is youtube.com/watch?v=K4Fvsgv0bY

When I get bored, or frustrated, or otherwise unengaged from my job, I like to hit Rosetta Code and implement something pointless in a dead language. Today it was this: rosettacode.org/wiki/Sorting_a

Here's a hint from a wiseass on Discord. It means the LLCC68 is lighter than the SX1268. About two stones lighter.
