@rgegriff and this, right here, is why their business will fail.

@IngaLovinde looks lovely, but since I don't have a job in the EU nor do I presently speak German (where are RNA language transfers when you need them) I'm going to have to pass. Best of luck, however.

@thegibson that was always an enjoyable program to have on in the background.

@web3isgreat ah, yes, the craptocurrency grift continues.

Used to be that after a wildfire, volunteer orgs would surge people into a burn scar for a mass replanting effort. I was a member of a couple of those surges when I was in Scouting. Good exercise, camaraderie, and some beautiful scenery.

Too bad it's not done any more.

Batty: I've seen things you Pixels wouldn't believe. Cell towers disguised as fir trees on the borders of Yellowstone. I watched CDMA switchover to LTE while a banker screamed numbly at his phone. All those moments will be lost in time like internal datasheets... for unreleased products. Time to charge.

@debugninja@banana.dog as one domain rises (dotorg.org) in the fedoverse, another sets (banana.dog). Goodbye, good luck, and thanks for all the fish.

Nice try, but not enough. Modern broadband should be at least 100mbit symmetrical. We have the technology. It's relatively cheap and easily deployable.


@snipe oh, I hit that tilt a while back. But, like everything else, I don't seem to check them lots.

@murph @thegibson Was this before or after he cranked the Soviet National Anthem on the sound system?

@thegibson An additional moral to this story: do not try to keep up drinking with the DEF CON Goons at their afterparty (Goon swim).

You WILL lose, and it will usually hurt.

@antijingoist @thegibson Oh, I had a palm device in the early 90s. I'm not certain that bletcherousness qualifies as touchscreen. :P

As for the music video choice, obviously they weren't familiar with Billy Joel.

Because, you know... "We didn't light it, but we're trying to fight it."

@melyanna @thegibson Funny. So have I. Literally a 3 hour ride back to the trailhead, much less "civilization".

I miss having horses, on occasion.

@thegibson When I got back to the hotel, the first words out of my mouth were "The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated."

@thegibson @pixelkeen @clock Ok, what about the stuff that was classic rock when I was in HS (now 25 years ago)? "Museum Rock"? "Archival Rock"?


I'm going to need a rocking chair, a jug of moonshine, and a shotgun. Now get off my goddamn lawn.
