trying to figure out some really strange behavior on my ZFS disk array where accessing data is painfully slow over the network (like 20 kB/s), but disk access on the machine appears to be fine, and scrubbing hasn't found any errors yet. hmm

has someone done a corporate communications bingo card yet

there are only so many times you can write "unprecedented times" before a precedent is established

went through some games I haven't played recently and I want to share that the credits theme to Jamestown (2011) is so good. here you go

#np of course

just in case it's not clear, this is not a suggestion to give money to Square Enix; you can decide whether that's appropriate on your own

last I checked, Plague Inc was trending on Steam but Deus Ex wasn't. what is that

like come on, you're in a pandemic that Western governments can't figure out how to handle, that's literally how Deus Ex starts

We’re sharing games we’ve made? A few years ago I wrote Space Adventure Laika, a Twine game about being a small dog who is going to die.

Here's a novel I wrote about ten years ago and haven't published until now. It's kind of dark anime science fiction, with a lot of catgirls, gangsters, sex, drugs, and religion. Please boost it.

techmoan seems to spend a lot of time qualifying statements in his videos. makes me think that his audience must be tedious as hell

it's so funny how Beatport promotes music by calling it "weapons"

literally evacuate the dancefloor by dropping a bomb

well at least people might stop using "going viral" for a bit

@djsundog you asked about 5G devices at one point? I have one (Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G), can't recommend it:

  • the cellular modem is of very shoddy quality; it seems to frequently reset
  • latency and throughput is really only significantly better if you're around, say, a T-Mobile store, or something else that might have a suitable base station nearby

basically you get Samsung engineering quality merged with experimental rollouts. not really a recipe for a working product

in this essay, I will discuss the implications of repackaging covert communications techniques as consumer culture (1/239846)

huh, The Conet Project tracks are really great for ringtones

#np Qumu - Star Fox - Corneria [Remix]

I didn't know I wanted the Corneria theme played on sax [@1:30], but it turns out I do

it is interesting how someone hears "person-to-person transmission" and interprets that as "airborne". it's also interesting what some someones do after they make that association

actually that's not really interesting at all, it just shows that dumbfuckery is endemic and we kinda knew that all along lol
