Because of its design everything that happens on Twitter has two characteristics: superficial and fast-moving.

You can't create an arts scene under those circumstances.

Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob

Seriously fuck this guy

Remember, Amazon workers are striking today. So don't be a scab, avoid Amazon's businesses.

If you're looking for e-books, you're in luck!

All these shops sell e-books without DRM, and most will work on your Kindle (look for MOBI format).

I feel like if you're in a position to download Apple's password db and crack it at your leisure, you're in a position to do far, far more sinister things than that.

It occurs to me that when I make my Apple ID password complex, the implied threat model I'm defending against, is somebody compromising Apple completely, and yet the thing they choose to do with their access in that apocalyptic scenario is find Apple's DB of hashed passwords and go at it brute force in order to compromise individual users' accounts. But don't worry, I'm safe, it will take them too long to brute force my account! Ha ha!

Interesting post about how very small a part "password complexity" plays in in defending people against account compromise in the real world... techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5

Hey, if you enjoy making art, you’re an artist, there is no skill level you have to achieve or medium you have to work in or other secret criteria you have to meet to become a “true” artist. If you like making art you are an artist and if anyone says otherwise they can fuck off

Listening to some Aesop Rock. Shit's pretty tight.

Hi everyone who remembered they have a Mastodon account now that Twitter is down.

WTF. One of the missing pieces I hate about PHP -- "$x = $y || $z" -- actually exists after all, it's just "$x = $y ?: $z".

I never see anybody using it in code. I didn't know it existed. Most discussion of it are just asides in discussions about the "ternary operator".

But it's been around for lots and lots of years -- since PHP v5.3.

Weird.

Traduki pomemojn estas damne malfacile. Jen mia provo pri nur kvar versoj de Wallace Stevens.

Ili diris, “vi havas bluan gitaron.
vi ne ludas la estantaron.”
respondis li, “la estantaro
sxangxigxas sur la blua gitaro.”

Please hire me.

I'm disabled so I can't do physical work anymore, but I can do a great many things. Including actually make good schedules and planning itineraries and customer service and communication things.

Thanks
