Climate change programming nerdery 

It is official, if you need date "after end of the world" you can legally use anything after 2050 iff you comment: "If this becomes a problem we are sooo lucky".

Mastodon folks might be particularly interested in my response in this MetaFilter thread -- someone basically asked whether they should give up on Linux entirely, and I replied.

meds 

I think I'm fucking with my body by trying to slowly move when I take my levothyroxine, but like taking it in the afternoon leaves me exhausted just before I take it.

Maybe I need to see a doctor and see if I need the dose adjusted again... ugh...

Richard Stallman, paedophilia apologia. 

Richard Stallman and his defenders have said his comments on the Epstein thing have been misunderstood. Even if this is true it doesn't matter. His positions at MIT and the FSF were untenable regardless due to a history of paedophilia apologia.

"I am skeptical of the claim that voluntary paedophilia harms children"

Fuck him tbh.

My first work was doing enterprise systems for polish Orange (or Idea maybe even). I left them screaming due to, well architecture.

Now as a client i see nothing was fixed.

military, police 

I'm reading a book about learning and how humans form mental models, and it's really good, but keeps drawing on examples from the military and police and, like, ugh.

I really don't want to hear how realistic the police training simulations are, the ones that teach them to shoot first and ask questions later. it's cool that humans think both fast and slow; it's fucked that we train police human's fast thinking systems to recognize all people as threats.
