I was wrong, it is possible to “fix the system from within.” So here’s the new plan:

Greta Thunberg, please join ExxonMobil.

Doctors, apply for jobs at Philip Morris.

Pacifists, enrol in the military.

Personally, I will immediately start a new job with six figure pay and stock options at Facebook to help fix privacy.

#FixItFromWithin #bullshit

I wish there was a way to filter out any Mastodon posts that contains the words "GNU/Linux".

It used to be "It's DNS. It's always DNS." Now with Java on the server "It's RAM. It's always RAM."

Java on servers. Let it be known throughout the land: I hate it. It should die a horrible death.

Time for another biased poll.

Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

@eastcoastweb @selea That wasn't part of your original scope so good luck - I'm sure you'll find someone who will help you.

@selea I used to do that back in the old days when I still commuted to work. I was at the office by 6-6:30 and could leave at 15:30 and avoid the evening rush hour traffic. Until my boss of course ordered me to stay until 17:00. I pointed out that it would take me 1,5 hours to get home, compared to 40-45 minutes so he suggested I worked unpaid overtime everyday. I quit shortly after that.

Microsoft now owns, or will soon own, one of the best text-to-speech engines for blind power-users, through its acquisition of Nuance. But the code has been abandoned for years. It seems unlikely that this TTS engine is a valuable asset for Microsoft. So let's petition them to open-source it. change.org/p/microsoft-open-so (No, I didn't start the petition, but I'm in agreement with it.)
