yeah i'm anarchist, i believe we should not have arch linux

ME: these anomurans are good, but they have... how can one say ... too many crabs? there are in fact, only so many crabs that can evolve in the course of natural history. I think I'm right in saying that, aren't I?

NATURE: this is absurd!

ME: my good anthropomorphic personification, don't take it too hard. it's quality evolution. there are simply too many crabs. just remove a few, and it will be perfect.

NATURE: which few did you have in mind?

remembering the Dwarf Fortress bug where cats would hunt vermin and bring it to their dwarf, but upon trying to pick it up they would realize cats have no hands and fall into existential despair

@Vierkantor One of the best parts of that Wikipedia article was the person who was let down by the Society of Universal Friends not being some crazy cult like they expected.

'One person who heard the Friend in 1788 said "from common report I expected to hear something out of the way in doctrine, which is not the case, in fact [I] heard nothing but what is common among preachers" in Quaker churches.'

You know how in cartoons you have the character with a weird name that is revealed to be just their family name, like The Ugly One's father Manolios Ugly One?

"[In 1786], Sarah, together with her infant daughter, took up residence with the Public Universal Friend [...], and came to be called Sarah Friend."

tech tip 

Have music stored on another computer and you can't be bothered to set up Funkwhale? If you can SSH into that computer, you can play files via VLC:

Go to Media > Open Network Stream. Enter a URL of the format sftp://user@host:port/path/to/music and you can stream the files over SSH.

My only musical talent is to produce the perfect "Come... Huh!!" each time, when Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood is playing.

ah yes, somehow funkwhale broke and decided to log 20 lines of debugging traceback per second. that will do it.

Mastodon is a server for a federated social network: everyone can run a server if they want to, including me. So this is a Mastodon server for me (Vierkantor) and my friends.
