Also known as @knapjack and @goose but you can call me Jack. I snap photos on film, flip bits for a living and live in the subarctic. Be kind, rewind.

@keithdevereux @Billthoo I trained for this in college. I was often working, and for a while I was working 3-6 on Fridays and for a different while I had class from 3-6 on Fridays. I'd get done, eat, look for my friends, they'd all be half-drunk and on their way to their second party by then, nowhere to be found. I'd be like, fine, wander back to my dorm, listen to music, read a book. ๐Ÿค“

Happy Friday, for everyone who didn't celebrate prematurely.

Looking at you, @Billthoo. Don't give me that Round Earther crap.

#mastoadmin hacky tip that works really well for stability and scale - setup a crontab job to restart Sidekiq once a day. It stops the dead 'too many open files' jobs issue and a bunch of other things.

Bill Tompkins (1930-2001), Lingit name Hinโ€™Sheesh, as a member of the 1948 Alaska Railroad baseball team. He was Alaskaโ€™s first homegrown sports prospect, a two-sport star at Anchorage High in the 1940s and the first Alaska Native to play minor league baseball. He played for teams in North Carolina, Washington state, Louisiana, and Calgary, Alberta. #alaskahistory #alaska

And I'm not naive. This is symbolic equal justice.

Children accused of petty theft sit in jails for months. Kids at protests get arrested for being "mouthy" -- now and then an innocent man is killed by the state for someone else's crime. Who are the people who are so consistently failed? Not the mighty, not the wealthy, not the well-connected.

But, if we can fingerprint a former president. Maybe there is a little hope for those words not sounding so hollow.

Holy damn this is wild

โ€œI hacked into a @Bing CMS that allowed me to alter search results and take over millions of Office365 accounts.

How did I do it? Well, it all started with a simple click in Azureโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ‘€

As a professional writer, I am avoiding any and all use of ChatGPT. First, because that stuff is trash. Second, because it's non-copyrightable and very possibly full of plagiarized material and could undermine my own rights over my own work if I used it. Third, because I'm a damn writer, and I'm here to write, not to prompt a machine to generate bullshit for me. Fourth, see first.

Had my first real chat with the great stochastic parrot in the sky while waiting for my kid. Topics tonight:

  • 'Oumuamua
  • Chess
  • Long lost computer languages vs fancy new ones
  • It's reluctance to estimate odds with limited data
  • Foreign language input in the language model

All geeky stuff, nothing enlightening or soul-crushing.

My sister called me out of the blue this evening, on a day that I really needed to hear a loved voice. Dad used to tell me to call her when he knew she was having a bad day, and somehow he made a way to have her call me today. Almost an affirmation that those we love who have left us arenโ€™t really gone after all. โ™ฅ๏ธ

Tech bro (odoriferous named)
Mistook being wealthy for fame.
But a bird in his hand
Is worth two pounds of sand
And he set half his fortune aflame.

From the bike lane opponents' newsletter, talking about the city council meeting where they want people to show up to oppose bike lanes: โ€œIf you can bike or walk to the venue (itโ€™s on Addison near Bonar), please do that, since parking will be at a premium.โ€

I was promised a sci-fi future where robots would do all the menial tasks so that humans could focus on creating art and instead you assholes built robots to do the art so we all have to fight over the jobs doing menial tasks, good job.
