“Buh TikTok is Chinese spyware.”

Shut the fuck up who cares. Everything is spyware these days you’re just signaling out Chinese companies because you’re racist.

thinking about self driving cars, but the cars are longer, with capacity for about 90 people per car. and maybe we could simplify the decision-making of the AI by providing a set path and schedule that they would adhere to. perhaps a physical mechanism on which the self-driving car could always be on, something like a rail to minimize them going off path and being a danger to cyclists or pedestrians. anyone in Silicon Valley want to fund this? we could even chain the cars together to maximize efficiency.

since i set up wireguard for the first time i fell in love with it. although i'm not clear about internal advantages vs openvpn i would recommend it to anybody looking for a self-hosted vpn.

I almost got into a conversation with an Arch user who hadn't updated his system in a year and was remarkably proud of this fact. He was about to begin the update. I was tempted to stick around and watch the disaster unfold but decided against. I can't believe anyone wouldn't update their Arch install in a year. Remember folks, these people walk amongst us, they express opinionsand can vote. Scary shit. #arch
