nazis, freedom of speech Show more
I won't even reply to those toots because I've spent years reading about nazis and I know what I'm talking about here.
I'm not saying there aren't other totalitarian systems.
I'm saying in a diverse society with freedom of speech and other freedoms you can't accept totalitarian opinions as equally valid, there needs to be a consensus where human rights are respected and accepted and then we can differ.
Kids in bed, so this one's all mine! #nom 😋

I'm already bored with the line of Conservative Party (thus Prime Minister by default) candidates scrambling to declare their past recreational drug use before the tabloids do it for them. Who actually cares? If "did you take illegal substances when you were younger?" is the best question a political journalist can come up with, they ought to be fired. In fact, they ought to be fired just for asking it. 🙄

Something really different about the light in the south of France, I was watching British TV, the women's football team arriving *somewhere*. I thought to myself "that's here!" and a few moments later the commentator announced it was Nice. All I saw was the light and a sliver of buildings and sky and their bus, but there was something about the quality of the light that was uniquely 'here'. Weird! 😎
Trump Show more
I can't help it. It bothers me that a man who actively avoided his own military service, who has frequently belittled and mocked others who did serve - regardless of the politics - to defend what they believed in, a man who actively and openly seeks to dismantle and weaken the institutions specifically created to prevent another 'great war', gets to sit in the front row of the commemoration of all that sacrifice like it's some kind of amusing side-show for him.

Well, I've witnessed a pretty astounding wipe-out of a VMware private cloud this afternoon. They've literally turned the datacentre off and on again and it's still fucked. Wouldn't like to see the bill they end up getting when they inevitably call out VMware consultants to figure out wtaf is happening! Glad it's not my job to do the DR testing on this shit! 😂
Mini-DebConf Marseille 2019 summary http://gcolpart.evolix.net/blog21/mini-debconf-marseille-2019/
Dear white goods designers. The humidifiers you design are most likely to be used in someone's bedroom at night. Thus while you might think that bright blue power LED gently says 'acqua' to the end user, I tell you it's really screaming 'MURDER DEATH KILL' to the poor bastard who's trying to sleep alongside your gurgling light-show. If you must have a power LED, for fucks sake make it soft red. 😤
