Charge

Instructions like this make me lose faith in humanity… pic.twitter.com/wfLhnVbL9Q — Jake Williams (@MalwareJake) May 7, 2019 In my experience (and I have a whole lot of it), about 5-10% of regular users are incapable of using their laptop charger correctly the first time, and many of those are incapable of it consistently after multiple… Read More »

Fun fact: You can still run 32-bit VMs on a system even if Intel VT-x and AMD-v are not enabled in the BIOS. Had an odd situation where running a VM helped me get around a bunch (like 5) of endpoint security products. — Beau Bullock (@dafthack) May 8, 2019 Yes! I discovered this a… Read More »

what male athletes in most fields looked like before widespread steroids/testosterone use. https://t.co/Qz3ng20DpE — Ian Welsh (@iwelsh) May 17, 2019 Yes, testosterone had something to do with it, for some athletes, but that’s not nearly the whole story. Weight training also mattered. Up until even the late 1980s, the conventional wisdom was that athletes should… Read More »

The taxi medallion scam is exactly what is happening with student loans, and will end about as well. A large part — perhaps the majority — of our economy is now based on grifts and scams.

Legacy

My partner and I were discussing today how hard it has become to have a working browser anymore. We have to scour various sites to find older add-ons (back when they worked properly) that actually allow you to customize the browser to a point where it works correctly.

Dead and Buried

By | May 17, 2019

I mostly agree with what the Trump admin is doing on tariffs now, though I don’t think it’ll help much. But don’t just buy into the propaganda that tariffs are always bad.

Clock Not So Wise

By | May 16, 2019

I have no problem with left and right, but clockwise and counterclockwise…who knows? Unless I have a literal clock in front of me, I can never remember and doesn’t look like that is ever going to change.

I think a lot of people have a truly fundamentally different relationship to food than I do. Reading how people “eat the pain away” or “stress eat” and I have no idea what that’s about. Food does nothing for me in that way, and I am no more likely to eat when I’m sad or… Read More »

Marco Rubio openly supports an abortion ban (~15% support nationwide) and yet is treated as a "moderate" by media. AOC supports Medicare for All, Green New Deal, limits on credit card interest (all overwhelmingly popular nationwide) and is treated like an extremist. — we’re going to pass AVR 🍉🍉 (@SeanMcElwee) May 16, 2019 And it’s… Read More »
