Despite whatever you might think about folks who work on tech spilling forth an utterance of curses - know that it is an essential verbal component to data witchery. Often used along with the somatic components, (🖕 is one you may be familiar with), the words weave a fine spell, in hopes it may be used to coax the device or process in question into obedience, or face banishment to oblivion.
This is important enough that it cannot be contained by the simple "reply" button:
Journey lied to you, whether you stop believin' or not, there is no such thing as South Detroit. Immediately South of Detroit, is the Detroit river, and on the other side of that is a place called Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Live by the sword, die by the sword. Everyone knows the stock market is corrupt, full of insider trading, and is basically a cesspool. Its a game played by people with lots of spare income, there just isn’t going to be sympathy from people who barely live cheque to cheque.

I've had the most success with Armbian, but at least twice now, they've deployed kernel updates that caused my machine to fail to boot. Re-imaging/etc. isn't a huge deal for my tiny instance, but it is frustrating.
Great news from the EU pushing interoperability between messaging apps! 🎉

@john I hear you and I don't disagree with that way of approaching it. However, I've been betrayed far too many times by the party I supported for many years, and it's exactly the kind of framing displayed in the tweet which is directly harmful to people who need help.
Brunch-set Democrats are not a friend to me & people like me, and until they either adjust their outlook or lose their grip on power, it's open season.
