Me:

Hey Windows, what version of .NET do you have installed

Windows:

4.0.

Me:

Are you sure?

Windows:

Yes. That's a completely reliable estimate.

Me:

Just to clarify, by "4.0", do you possibly actually mean "4.7" ?

Windows (annoyed):

WHAT IS YOUR OBSESSION WITH MY VERSION NUMBER SHEESH THEY'RE JUST ONES AND ZEROES

taoism, "acting simply" 

"True leaders are hardly known to their followers.
Next after them are the leaders the people know and admire;
after them, those they fear;
after them, those they despise.

To give no trust is to get no trust.

When the workโ€™s done right,
with no fuss or boasting,
ordinary people say,
Oh, we did it."

-Laozi, Chapter 17

This is one of those passages from the Tao Te Ching that's been really sticking with me lately. It's a pretty interesting way of looking at good leadership; as an invisible hand, if you will, rather than an iron fist.

I am so damn tired today but maybe I will still manage to find a problem with delivery...

Mastopurge issue 

I'm trying to clear out old toots from an old account using Mastopurge, but I keep running into an issue

It starts off fine, and a few seconds into the process, it says the "server has run hot" and has a wait of between 10-30 minutes to continue - then it deletes just 40 toots and exits back to the command line

There are 2,000+ toots on this account, so doing 40 at a time with a long wait on each go will take months - any ideas?

So indigenous Australians have told geographically accurate stories about rising sea levels that happened after the last ice age, and the stories have stayed accurate for about 10 000 years.

Goes to show that oral tradition can be accurate and extinction of indigenous languages can lead to a permanent loss of information about the world โ€” which of course are not new claims.
