When NS fishermen say this is a matter to be decided before the Supreme Court, by the Provinces, or by the DFO, they are pre-emptively denying any recognition of our nationhood and asserting, however obliquely, that Canada has authority and jurisdiction over us.

I have a new phone, and I find the screen on it makes OpenBoard super susceptible to typos

My penchant for tying super fast on phones doesn't help, but I hate it

Why you might want to manage Postgres on EC2 yourself and use ZFS instead of using RDS Postgres?

Here is an example:…

systemd: wow you found a bug in our software. Please file a super detailed bug report.

[I filed a bug report]

systemd: You are truly an advanced user, surely you are skilled enough to work around your problem, which we don’t think is a problem for our use cases

Why are the ones who WERE keeping it peaceful (BLM and those protesting @GovRonDeSantis fascist af bill) Saturday night get called out time and time again and then silence when things are escalated by counter-protests?

@theckman @tqbf @somedeepstuff1 @VickerySec @pwnallthethings Yes, I know how names work. But I have no idea who that is. It is not someone I’ve heard of.

If your entire job depends on abusing the fact that a single website run by one dude didn't add password protection to user data, you have either failed at your job or your job should not exist.…

I tried to login to DigitalOcean today for the first time in years.

I actually can't do anything without giving them a credit card. Even view a team who is paying them.

So, uh, I guess I can't do any work today?

Route request: from Keatsway PS area to Waterloo CI. Seems the only one reasonable route, down Keats Way to University and up Hazel. Uses protected lanes on University which unfortunately do not extend to Westmount leaving a gap with bike lane but no protection. 1/2

Any loss of life is sad.

Since 1680 (not a typo) over 1600 police have died on duty (incl car accidents etc)

The numbers of deaths of those in police custody far exceed this relatively small number a rate of 5.3 per year.

I just fpund this puzzle at my parent's place

@KimMaida Hire a consultant to find the inefficiencies in your process and recommend ways of improving.

Look, I love Arnold for doing this, but let’s not pretend that the political future of the country being determined by rich lords of the realm spending ungodly amounts of money in opposition to each other isn’t a stark reminder that well past democracy into full oligarchy.

You shouldn’t be able to walk into someone’s home, kill them, and get away with it.

It doesn’t matter who you are.

@WeimTimeLLC @FrankMcG I find it unbelievable that infosec professionals would defend this.

Under capitalism I went to school for 16 years straight so I could procure a job where I nuke and eat glorified dog food because preparing food or driving out for something is too many hours of labor I cannot do 🤪

I have resolved to say Five Eyes rather than "The West" or "Western Civilization"

Keep the "mostly white post-British English Speaking World" associated with its crimes, and keep the origin of the monoculture in my mind

if your Big Data person does NOT know what this picture means, get rid of them

the famous "survivorship bias" diagram of an idealized PV-1 bomber viewed from the top with red dots around the tail, center fuselage, wing roots behind the engines, and outer edge wing tips.<br /><br />The US military wanted to use data from returning damaged bombers, the red dots signified damage they recorded, to determine what parts of the plane to uparmor. Statistician  Abraham Wald realized that they were ONLY able to analyze the planes that RETURNED. <br /><br />Therefore the damage they were recording was ONLY that which could be sustained and allow the crew to safely return. The planes that had sustained fatal damage, the ones that really needed armor, didn't make it back to be recorded by the statisticians

distributed systems is an attempt to answer the question "is it possible for something to be broken and still work at the same time"

Giving a time machine to the wonderbread deviant art dude so he can become DaVinci's patron

The obvious objection to this is "Has become" is incorrect

Dungeons and Dragons was never not an oral tradition
Dungeons & Dragons has become an oral tradition RPG and I will not be taking questions at this time.

Either there's an entire market of "we sent a satellite to space but forgot to budget for how to talk to it" companies walking around, or Microsoft just got baited into competing in the Ridiculous Product Olympics.

Look there's a lot of pressure on parents to be perfect but I have a BIG SUPER SECRET that renders the concept of perfection TOTALLY MOOT:



apologize to your kid/kids when you mess up.

The worst part of relistening to @ttwasteland_ is that Hub didn't know / wasn't a backslash for the longest time.

This is also the problem with listening to Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff

This is a good time to remind everyone that under the Obama administration the executive branch claimed the authority to kill any person, no matter their citizenship status, without trial the moment they stepped off of US soil

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed
