I was never on twitter, so I don't grok the culture, which seems quite bizarre to me.
"Follow for Follow" is stupid. It is racking up a 'high score' to please capitalist overlords who crave personal data on reds ,so they can control them with ads and information.
Better your should cultivate *real* relationships with your comrades and not accumulate faceless numbers.
Statistics don't lead revolutions. Real people and relationships conquer.

The all too ubiquitous PR stunt. "If you purchase $100 worth of merch, we'll donate %5 of it to help fund research against COVID-19".

OR, and hear me out here, I can just donate $20 to some lab, and that way I'd be saving money, giving more to people who could use it, AND I wouldn't end up with a hundred bucks worth of merch in a box in my basement.

We need better marketing teams.

@MutoShack Curiously enough, the the European layout on the number keys is reflected in ASCII, apart from the slash.

Number keys shifted: !"#$%&/()
ASCII 0x20--0x29: !"#$%&'()

Makes it easy for Europeans to remember how to escape () as %28%29 when we have to escape a URL to please some picky URL parser. 😀

those extended file attribute thingies of the Hurd sound rather cool. would be nice not having to think of places to put metadata.

is making a new keyboard, with better switches and programmable keys...

I took a vitamin D pill, but honestly I think I just need to sit out in the sun for like, a few hours.

Just wish it wasn't dark out. Tomorrow for sure.
