Need a startup that disrupts union busting

Ehy @cwebber

Mattew Garret posted an interesting thought on his blog

It' s about what could or should be achieved through software licenses and what the pressures are today

I found it on the spot and I'd be interested in reading your impression about that

Techbro mention 

Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I’ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.

My hand for scale, don’t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.

What many younger gamers don't realize is that the Sonic games as originally release were very slow, casually-paced games, one of the original "walking simulators".

It's only because of the naive dependency of those early game developers on CPU-cycle based timing loops -- under the assumption that CPU speed could be treated as a fixed constant -- that the games now run far too quickly under modern emulation conditions.

"Gotta Go Fast" was originally a kind of zen koan, not Sonic's aspiration.

my new interview question for people with k8s on their résumé is going to be to ask them how k8s works

Well y'all it's that time again, if you're looking for a writer/graphic designer to do work or know someone who is, feel free to give me a ring. I can do all sorts of stuff if I get paid enough to do it.

I also have a patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/mintymentha

Ngl it would own to be able to support myself purely on my writing so :blobeyes:

Think of it this way, the sooner I'm back on my feet the sooner I get to show off Mint art :boost_ok:

Microsoft is trying to bring Edge browser to Linux and they've asked for user data on use-cases. there's a section at the end for extra requests / needs which is perfect for including: "NO TELEMETRY OR PRIVACY INVASION"

if we get hundreds putting this in their user survey they only expected a few devs to reply to maybe we can at least piss them off. so please, fill this out, even if with bullshit information, only to request no privacy invasions :)

Amazon announced a smart oven today, which makes me feel like now is a good time to remind everyone that best buy discontinued its smart fridges, meaning you can't set up timers on it after November 6th.
