Pinned toot

I realized that I never wrote my , so here it goes.

I'm a Python programmer working on open source. After hours I do whatever is my current obsession, so far I have gone through: , , , , , miniature , and music, , walking , , , , , , homebrew game handhelds.

I love and (no patience to watch tv/shows).

Humans are contrary creatures.

We will ferociously rebel against the most reasonable, fair, and beneficial rules if we only feel they are being imposed on us by someone else.

And we will accept without question the most unfair, harmful and ridiculous rules, as long as we feel they come from the nature/god/tradition/whatever.

Our bullshit detectors have evolved to detect manipulation, not truth.

May your plans for every contingency cover the events that will actually happen!

If actions have consequences, is it still freedom?

You probably have heard about the TVBgone, but can I have a leafblowerBgone, please?

I'm so glad they are only collecting my data, and not, like, my information.

Registered on a forum, but didn't post anything yet, because I have a wall of text of the forum's rules open in a tab, and I don't have the energy to read through all that right now. Maybe tomorrow.

Two more PCBs arrived. One is the same, but with RGB LEDs – i will play with that one later – and one with extra rows on the sides, for all the control keys – basically a flat Planck. That one I already assembled and it works great, I think this is going to be my main keyboard.

pol/tech 

They say you can't solve social problems with technical solutions, but it seems that so far the reverse is not true. For every "problem" created by tech our leaders found a social solution:

* exponential rate of progress — patents and trade secrets
* growing science literacy — conspiracy theories
* 3-day work week — bullshit jobs
* growing quality of life — marketing and finance industry
* spread of democracy — lobbying

So I am really confident that our leaders will keep coming with solutions.

Kids these days. When I listen to my books, all I hear is paper rustling.

It's the terror of knowing what this world is about.
Watching some good friends screaming, "let me out".

I swear I'm going to add "killall pulseaudio" to cron...
