@littlejohn omg I remember desert strike. It is creepy to think about its concept in 2022 though! Happy birthday, sdf.

SDF is 35 this month, and I found the right blend of nostalgia to celebrate!

This is not my SDF account. A long time ago, I had a basic account. I was 13 (or 14?). I probably couldn't afford the lifetime ARPA membership (if that even was a thing back then, I no longer recall) -- it wasn't a factor because this was back when sending and receiving money internationally was still pretty hard so...

I definitely couldn't afford a fast computer. I didn't even have *my own* computer (1/n)

I wired the brick up as a very small external monitor, so you can, for instance, play Doom on it.

Economists who don't understand that we risk losing everything due to global heating need to get out of their air-conditioned offices more

If you’re not terrified by the climate & ecological emergency then you don’t understand the climate & ecological emergency.

PSA: If you're in a rut because of losing money on crypto scams, I feel for you.

Don't do anything rash, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

It's not entirely your fault. There are people spending a lot of time and effort on figuring out ways to trick you and others into pumping hard cash into their pump and dump schemes.

I've been considering what it would take to make a useful, single user, Lisp operating system. It seems like all that's really needed is an interpreter which persists long-lived environments (I'm using this word how Scheme uses it) to the disk, so they can be removed from memory, and be copied back into memory when accessed later.

If you make this interpreter PID 1 on a Unix-like kernel, you've really just created a Lisp OS. Instead of creating files for storing data, you just declare variables. If you want to have multiple variables with the same name, just create them in different environments (similar to creating files with the same names in different directories).

I took a stab at writing a Lisp interpreter a few years ago. I got something that would apply some built in operators (basically just arithmetic), but didn't get very far. I think now that I actually understand Lisp more, I want to try doing this, and play around with using it as PID 1 on Linux or other Unix-like kernels.

I was really depressed for the last two days because I left my ring on the lawn and the crows stole it BC shiny. It's irreplaceable and Akkas gave it to me two years ago so I was devastated. I dredged the pond and used a metal detector all over the lawn but it was gone. But today I cooked the crows bacon in the morning and this afternoon it was returned RIGHT WHERE I LEFT THE BACON!!!!!

So here's a question out there for the fediverse,

Anybody who rides a #motorcycle , especially smaller bikes and scooters a la Honda's MiniMoto line (or even a #moped like a #vespa )

Do you have any experience with the #hondanavi at all? Do you know someone that does?

I figure crowdsourcing some actual on-road experience about the thing would be helpful in deciding whether or not I get one.

I require help on small motorized machines like only talking heads on the internet can

@EU_Commission "more things need to be implemented like fighting corruption". Ma'am, but you have Hungary, an autocratic state, in the Union? Perhaps evaluate Ukraine compared to it? What about Croatia, where the reports of corruption are on the level of a nationwide meme?

I have to consume materials about the modern cryptocurrency space and related stuff. There are so many layers of rage I have. The latest: techbro x cryptobro -- sending shit to space to generate private keys.

@mr_oova I've suggested a vegan ending to the author, we'll see if it's gonna get adopted.

@groovestomp (except please, make the website such that it's easier for people to give you the money. OSE website is painfully confusing)

@groovestomp you should be like Gavin necroticgnome.com/ — push some hobby hard enough to do it full time :)

@mr_oova Oh wow, Agrawos is a really disturbing city. Damn meat-eaters.
