Hashtag never marry a hedge fund manager. Or do? I need more details on the source of funding for this shoe collection.
The following year, Dan Shak, a hedge fund manager and professional poker player who once sued his ex-wife for 35% of her $1 million shoe collection, was fined $400,000 and prohibited from trading during settlement periods after being charged with abusing TAS. He paid an additional $100,000 after he was found to have traded during the settlement window for gold a year later. He said it was an accident.
@lanodan lol /dev/full
@lanodan kinda meaningless without a reference though. iPhone 2x lens is 2x the regular iphone lens, which is... uh, whatever it is. Actually, it's quite wide, and the 2x zoom just makes it normal.
(We don't speak of L*n*x's flaws out loud; that's how you get replies.)

Somebody added a command line option to gnu ls which is --dereference-command-line-symlink-to-dir and I'm like, do you want skynet, because this is how you get skynet. The intersection of getopt and NLP should be the empty set.
@Moon what's the option to ls to follow each command line symbolic link that points to a directory?

@gonzalo that seems like an app problem.
If you follow (or did) the basketball player the professor, he tore his Achilles.
Today in #Android is awful: turned on an old tablet and need to push it through three OS updates. No way to simply install the latest. During each update, it spends many more minutes "optimizing" my apps, making the whole process take far longer. And utterly useless, since all the apps are going to be updated next.
@lain thanks Biden.

@lain I should play it. I bought it in anticipation of it being a travel game. But then nanny said no travel in my backyard.
@shadowfacts a fellow black magic fan I see.
This is probably the feature I use the least, with the most unintuitive interface. Felt cute, might delete.

“No, I don’t regret calling it an n----r,” Eckerle said. “A n----r is a n----r is a n----r. That’s not a person whatsoever.”
Totally normal public policy from an elected official.

@Moon I think opinions are pretty split on Genesis.

Critical PGP bug just disclosed: if an attacker responds to an encrypted message with "This doesn't decrypt for me, could you try without PGP", the sender will be unsurprised and provide the attacker a copy of the encrypted message in plaintext
Here's a genius police move. Somebody tweeted a picture of an unidentified cop, who nobody identified. Police department now charging tweeter (and retweeters!) for le cyber harassment, in the process revealing the name of the previously unidentified cop. Nobody knew who was until now!
They’re known to swarm in the air, cover trees, and coat decks and play equipment with their excrement, known as honeydew.
Really? Who calls their s#!t honeydew?
#Today in entomology, I've learned the weird jumping moths that are all over #philly are the spotted lanternfly. Never saw them before this summer, now they're everywhere.
Anyway, I used to get paystubs emailed to me in the form of a password protected pdf. The password was your last name. The point wasn't impenetrable security, but to make it so you wouldn't accidentally open someone else's file with just a double click in case they clicked forward on the wrong email or some other silly mistake.
@toast the illusion of design.
@lain I had my doubts, but now I realize there are benefits to living in a society.
@lain sorry sir, but you're not qualified to cook and clean for yourself, we're going to have to assign someone to do that for you.
Failed at the very adult task of moving clothes from the washer to the dryer in a timely manner, so now it's dank week here in the house of honk.
@toast never let reality interfere with a good meme.
@toast at the risk of telling you something you already know, this is why modern servers have a dedicated usb stick port on the motherboard.
I also award 🌶🌶🌶 to everyone saying intel123 is a terrible password.

Washington Post reviewed 14 brands of tortilla chips, and spoiler alert, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's house brands were the four worst in the bunch with some very low scores. Costco number two, classic tostitos number three. Corn santitas for the win (by a point; 1, 2, 3 were all close.)

Is there any basis in economic theory for directly comparing individuals' wealth to national GDP, or is it simply a matter of two numbers ending in B so they look comparable?

@lain ah, I see you're a true fallout man.
Ok, mention all seems to work. But it feels dirty.

I'm not part of the hive mind, but I couldn't help noticing you've been posting some unorthodox opinions recently.
Now that I'm done with this televised disaster, I've found people on the internet willing to argue that if I assume a bunch of things not in the show, and ignore a bunch of things that were, there's a way to have it all make sense.
Would not recommend. Hashtag cancel the feed.
The Feed has gone from interesting premise to full on stupid with every character now making maximally idiotic decisions. I'm now subtracting a full star for each episode of this ongoing catastrophe.
People who got catfished on the defense. "How dare you accuse this very real person I care deeply about of not being real!"

Went out for second coffee and now it's bright and sunny. Some pretty cool cloud formations though. And the river's running a touch high.
@sh reply all is a privilege, not a right. :)
I happen to like it this way, but it's an easy adjustment to make. Also, fwiw, under the covers everybody gets cc'd, they just don't get extra special mentioned. (Personally, I think the whole idea of stuffing addressing metadata into the message content is ridiculous, but we lost that war when we decided to clone twitter.)
Watching The Feed, a ten hour long episode of Black Mirror.
Stepped out for a coffee and it is raining hardcore parkour.
Adding support for audio attachments to honk, but restricting it to .au files.
Precision focusing. Holding a finger up at arms length and closing alternating eyes to estimate parallax using an ancient rangefinder technique pioneered by ansel adams, I have determined that the subject is somewhere between three feet and infinity.

@hj just for reference, : in urls in federated posts isn't replaced by %3a.
@lanodan that's what i've been saying! :)
actually, my fix covers the more important case. i thought it wasn't working because there's a more annoying case but it's less critical.
The emoji substitution thing is pretty dumb and annoying to fix. I'm inclined to say, oh just don't do that, but I'm not convinced it's safe to leave incoming posts mangled.
Intersection of features is always a disaster.
So the answer is, not good. Thanks. :)
I'm trying to fix things up so that all the many text substitutions done to posts, markdown, auto linking, emoji, mentions, hashtags, etc., all apply in a consistent order and without interfering or stomping on each other.
In other words, I know, I'll use a regular expression.
Was not entirely serious, but not joking either. But sounds like text is really hard to read. Interesting. Thanks. Last VR headset I tried was the virtual boy.
How do mastodon and pleroma treat emoji in urls? Like https://example.com/:emoji:/ but with emoji replaced with a local instance emoji. Is the url mangled?
(Honk mangles it something special.)
Ostrich theory of self awareness: if I'm not aware of other people, other people can't be aware of me.
Contemplating how effective VR goggles would be for desktop work outside. Laptop screen at 100% brightness is both too dark and killing battery. Sitting on a park bench coding away with a headset would be peak dork. But maybe actually useful?

The imminent collapse of CPU performance improvements has been predicted for quite some time, but it does seem we're increasingly clutching at straws to keep things going.
Adding turbo clocks was a good way to avoid limiting performance to worst case thermals. But then that become a game to push ever higher for ever shorter durations, without doing much for sustained performance. Now we're picking a single golden core on a die to be the chosen one to get a few extra hundred MHz.
It seems the captain can only order engineering to divert power from life support to warp engines so many times.
Wonder what implications will be for Wirth's Law. Will software keep getting slower?
