writing some ruby with the explicit goal of not using any external packages. kinda nice, ngl.

@yakkoj reminds me of the time the NRO donated a hand-me-down space telescope to NASA and people were floored at how good it was. this is the hardware that the intelligence community is throwing away. the amount we spend on civilian space is a fraction of a drop in the bucket.

there's a middle ground between "Linux as a personality" and " it doesn't matter at all who controls the future of computing". be careful not to react against one so hard that you slide right into the other.
