hey so just checking, who all among women/queer/trans/poc is in the NYC area or wants to be and doing #ml? i know a surprisingly decent (and ethical) company doing hiring in the near future

men, were you also not aware that you could just not attempt a comedic reply to a toot about awful men?

me @ other leftists: don't ever feel like you're not doing enough! capitalism is exhausting and running yourself ragged isn't worth it! small steps add up!!!

me @ myself: I'm not doing enough

Colin Mochrie is very good

image 1: "Happy birthday to my lovely daughter. 28 years old and everything we've ever hoped for in a child."

image 2: "Thanks to the fans of this page for being supportive and human. To the trolls, my thoughts and prayers to your body for losing it's mind and soul so tragically."

Re-drafted to include captions to the image, I'm sorry for not doing that before.

"The world's unfair, kiddo" is not an argument for "then allow unfairness", but instead is an argument for "Then make the world *FAIR*"

Tom Waits has a new song out, it's a cover of an Italian Anti Fascist song

It is hard for me to overstate this. My very favorite band of all time who has tried to stay apolitical since 1985 has released a song yesterday, on September the Eleventh, 2018, and it is, well, a good song.

hello new followers! here is my ask:
Please find some way to create effective change in your neck of the woods. find (or found!) a local advocacy org you agree with, and start showing up to meetings, either irl or online. if you live in the twin cities, or the sf bay area, I can give you some pointers. if not: google can!
make your cities better, cleaner, and greener: there's a million ways to do it, and your help is needed. you are needed! pitch in.

Holy crap. Okay, so first: I just read a Medium post about this Wayback Importer project on Glitch

@adam Have you tried out X2GO? I quite like it to be able to log in and suspend and come back to remote X sessions.

@adam I use tigervnc only listening on localhost and ssh in with ports forwarded. I feel like the performance is decent, but it would be nice to have a better solution.

Brap! 💨

A space for your toots and braps.

Also welcome: technology, programming, and whatever. Feel free to join! But don't expect 100% uptime. I'll try to alert when downtime might occur, it should be minimal.
