Last night @HackerRadioShow complained about how stores are trying to phase out re-usable bags to go back to plastic.

I bitched about this, too! My wife pointed out that at our grocery store, you can scan-as-you-go, then just leave the store with all your items in your cart, and then go to your trunk with your own bags and bag them up there. For some reason, that never occurred to me, so I lauded her as a genius and do that.

Now, I'll do it in a hacker tote bag.

I have joyously partaken of a hot dog, and shared the experience with Inara! :Hand_of_Eris:

Happy Friday!

Parenting Rule:
Don't expect us to care about your Halloween costume or plans until late September at the earliest.

Shouting into the void:
Damnit, kids! When I said you could have some of my stash of club soda, I didn't expect you to open a second bottle so they were both sitting around and going flat!

Kids, phooey.

Nothing says 'I'm fed up with this error!' like reformatting and reinstalling a different distribution.

Posts here are just my way of screaming into the void; thoughts I want to express, but don't really expect anyone to want to listen to.

(Feel free to listen anyway.)

Luckily, we're all going to die, anyways. I think we deserve it.

> POLITICO: Trump rally attendees must agree not to sue campaign over potential coronavirus exposure
"We know you're going to get sick, don't sue us, but come out anyways."
I hate when people lie and then can't stay in character. Don't tell me 2 + 2 = 5, then expect me to pony up another dollar for a $5 item when I give you two twos!

> The New York Times: Both Candidates Are Widely Disliked (Again). This Time, Biden Could Benefit.
Wow, they aren't even trying anymore, are they? "These two suck, I guess you can vote or something if you want to feel justified or righteous or something when you end up hating what you get."

So, I noticed the dumpster fire outside... I realize, while I am locked inside with an excess old laptop or two that this would be a great time for me to look into some of the protective mesh network systems.

Project Byzantium that @drwho worked on is not maintained anymore. What's the new/current version of that?

What do I teach myself to install when they cut off the networks here?

Years late, I am finally reading Crisis of Infinite Earths. I like that Earth-2 Superman, old Superman, is drawn like George Reeves, and Earth-1, current Superman (for the time) was Christopher Reeve.
