Faxes are by far THE WORST part of modern telephony.

No no no! Java is the scientist! You're thinking of Java's Script

Windows 9 isn't the first time Microsoft skipped a version number - In the early days, they skipped over MS-UNO and went straight to MS-DOS!

So #FollowFriday. Much alternative. Wow. :blobsurprised:

#Article13 has lurched back into life due to a last minute Franco-German deal:

juliareda.eu/2019/02/article-1

Any profit-making site over 3 years old will have to install YouTube-style automatic copyright filters on all uploads.

In practice, they would have to outsource it to Google etc. Big tech would choose what we see, even on tiny indie sites.

Please tell your MEPs today, in your own words, that this is not acceptable. They vote on this next Monday:

WHATS LONGER THAN BEING LONG?

DOUBLE WORD

ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

Something I like about Mastodon over birdsite is whenever a controversial opinion pops up here, there's a meaningful discussion instead of a dogpile of "that's a yikes from me" and reaction GIFs.

I made a little thing on Glitch for making blackout poetry, so you can be emo on the internet faster and more efficiently blackoutpoetry.glitch.me
