US pol & "free speech" 

I hope Senator Blackburn has Life Alert™ because it appears she's tripped on a very low bar and suffers from the crippling affliction of rank partisanship.

Dear lazyweb: I've been pulling all my photos off GPhoto and iCloud for space reasons but I miss having them all searchable (well, semi-searchable what with Google ML's comical idea of what is a "cat" etc).

So it's probably time to get them all properly tagged and whatnot - what is a good Linux photo management package?

(Major bonus points if it can gather all the photos from the various directories they're in and leave symlinks so the various Inkscape files with embedded photos still work.)

Say hello to my latest open-source project: gitflux 🎉

So, to recap the companies that added themselves to my shitlist in 2020:

RIAA (and their members): youtube-dl

Hachette / Penguin / Wiley: suing the Internet Archive

Youtube: breaking youtube-dl

Wizards of the Coast and d20 in general: too much to explain here in a toot.

Any other asshole companies want to be added to this list?

(note: not a request toot. Start your own shitlist.)

Incredible work by trashhalo and @fribbledom rendering graphics in the terminal with Bubble Tea. 🌈

I hope someone is keeping a list of all the terrible people in public office and I hope Kristi Noem, Governor of SD, is on that list.

On the long shot that Democrats actually take the senate and presidency, these folks are going to try to slink off like Nazis to Argentina.

Once again I'm back on my "The RIAA doesn't get one more red cent from me until they stop being idiots about things".

Hit me up if you would like some music to listen to in the interim.

Been into the woods again. They're preparing an invasion. Our time is up.

Joined a scifi book club so I fired my Nook up to get Paper Menagerie... only to find out that the entire Nook ecosystem has been down for like a week because of some sort of malware.

Sounds pretty catastrophic.
