Real proud of Minnesota for having the highest voter turnout of any US state, at over 64%!

@Jo i had the same experience exactly. :^) if you overcome it and end up liking that style, play doom64 next. (doom64ex is a good way to do that if you don't do older consoles)

if doom 2 is too confusing though, don't bother. 64 goes off the deep end in that direction. (part of why i enjoy it, now)

i couldn't come up with the word "south"; i went with "negative north".

@comradetaylorswift sexy ...good job browser, there's no chance i meant that as a domain name.

@feld @kaniini @lynnesbian no, that's all accurate as far as i know. my point is, it was a joy to use, and the surviving platforms are anything but.

@lynnesbian i miss webOS so much. just mount the damn thing like any other usb drive, no fuss, no layers of shit. these days i use an sftp client on android, much more reliable than mtp.

Trans friends, I love you. You deserve so much better than this country, this world, has given you.

@jackofallEves those charging-only ports are now "power bottoms".

@Sir_Boops slackware. that way you don't just know a distro, or linux, you know unix. (this is sincere advice, but i'm weird.)

i would if i could, but the squeaks i summoned ages ago led me to understand that even a single-reed instrument was far beyond my ken.

anybody still kicking around back in the day i found several talented and willing collaborators there.

rockets: we made fireworks, we blew each other up, we sent people to the moon.
internet: we built protocols and stacks, we lied and toppled democracies... still waiting for that awesome humanity-lifting next thing.

We need a new kind of building to routinely get people married. Most churches are too heteronormative and bogged down with ghoulish histories, and courthouses are full of classist racist technocrats. So I propose a new kind of place, which shall be called the Spouse House.

@minego i blame both that particular douchebag and the general fact that many phones now omit basic mandatory features like a headphone jack.

crafting some halloween decorations, the question of what names to put on tombstones came up.
i said: "we could always use r.i.p."
wife heard: "we could always use our IP."
