He just started streaming today, so please check him out and say hi if you like Terraria and/or Undertale! :)



This is my wife's grandparents. They were great people, and I'm glad our kids got to know their great-grandparents!

Sorry for your loss :(

So sorry for your loss.



Quote of the day:

"It's been said before, but this is not a debate. There is no debate. There is no "on the one hand, on the other hand." There is no "privacy v. security." This is "no privacy and weakened security v. actual privacy and actual security." There's literally no debate to be had here. If you understand the issues, encryption is essential, and any effort to take away end-to-end encryption is outlawing technology that keeps everyone safe."

Mueller to testify publicly on July 17 following a subpoena

"Special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify publicly following a subpoena from the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, the panels announced Tuesday."

"Mueller will testify publicly before both committees on Wednesday, July 17, according to a joint statement announcing the hearing."

"TSA Administrator David P. Pekoske told the committee that the move would have 'no effect on aviation security'."

Whatever you say, pal.

A wealthy couple donated millions to spread feer of vaccines
#Vaccines #Antivaxx #Disinformation

Bernard Selz is a so-called philanthropist. Ha! Right! He doesn’t care too awful much about humanity if he’s willing to give millions to support the spread of disinformation regarding vaccines.
No, anti-vaccine hysteria didn't emerge from grassroots. This rich NYC couple funded it.



#proprietarysoftware like #adobe #photoshop helps the #surveillance state ... like proprietary printing drivers that add yellow, pale dots that are secretly designed for spies; use #freesw instead. No source-catching traps.

@elrido Just to be clear, this was a very low end budget all-in-one printer - not some sophisticated device that could actually even print money that looked remotely real! So this is why I highly doubt the manufacter would have programmed such things in to the drivers on their own.

thank you for sharing the details



This is how real "fake news" works...

@Adam Gaskins first: to avoid misunderstanding: there are indeed very successfull attempts to implement socialist principle in societies. Scandinavia is one and I dare to say, that even Cuba has its merits. Though the Castro Regime is far from being democratic, it has never been a brutal tyranny and given the fact, that the regime has been under really heavy pressure from the US for 60 years now, that looks to me like: they actually do not want to brutalize the cubeans just to stay in charge, they rather organise a fairly acceptable standard of living, that is in some aspects(medical care) better than the one of the lower half of the US citizens.

Then you said a very true thing: "we humans have a hard time not putting things in tidy little boxes"
Exactly: ideals are one thing, real life (tm) is something different.
A govt, that does its best to improve the life of as many people as possible is better than a regime of idealists, that do anything to stay... show more

@Adam Gaskins - Great insights and I largely agree. However, I think that the US, in particular, needs to move much further to left. Most Democrats are too far to the right. We need someone like Bernie or Andrew Yang as president.



Let's Reinstate Net-Neutrality!


Please take a moment to help in the fight to restore net-neutrality! It's a very short & to the point bill that is being proposed here: https://www.congress.gov/116/bills/s682/BILLS-116s682is.pdf. It may take all of 1-2 minutes to read, as it only seeks to reenact the parts of the FCC that Ajit Pai has been dismantling for his former employer and other big corporate interests!

Ajit Pai (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=how%20bad%20is%20ajit%20pai) is one of the more vile characters to come from Trump's administration, and he has clearly stated his interests in helping to destroy net neutrality along with any laws that might prevent monopolies from growing stronger and gaining control of every aspect of our digital lives! The FCC's purpose is NOT to help Verizon monopolize markets!

Here's a starting point for taking action on this:

According to South Korea, Donald Trump's (@realdonaldtrump) "friend" Kim Jong Un has executed members of his envoy immediately after the recent summit!

Optional rant:
If this turns out to be true, then what's next? Trump openly admires this guy (depending on where his BPD is oscillating at)! Trump is supposedly some sort of self-proclaimed genius strategist and deal maker... and this is the outcome he gets. The president of the United States is a child in an adult body - and not a smart child! So many folks told him this was a bad idea in the beginning, yet he thought he alone had the powers to solve a decades old problem, and ignore all advice, wisdom or history that had come before him with this.

Given that Trump normally operates by simply taking things the next level when they don't go his way, what is 'the next level' here? This isn't a dictator you can just have a beer & shoot the shit with to talk it out. He's a vile dictator, megalomaniac, narcissist, and just generally despicable human being... and the #

erm, i don't think trump ordered the execution

@stan prentice That is correct. That's also why no one implied that he did.



"Russia did not help me get elected" and then "I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected". This is not how honest people speak. The United States goverment, #Democrat & #Republican alike, are ALL traitorous scum if they don't do more about this mob boss #POTUS



I came across a very strange problem today. All of the amavisd-new processes on my server were pegged at nearly 100% CPU usage! Restarting the services, or even trying to manually end the processes didn't work initially. I had to break out 'kill -9 ...' on them finally, after trying in vain to track down the source of the issue, or what the processes were even doing. While they were running at full CPU I simply set the 'nice' levels to +15 so they wouldn't disrupt other services much while troubleshooting. As far as I know everything kept running fine and no downtime was experienced on any services. I didn't do the kill right away because I wanted to make sure it was some important maintenance task they were doing, or something like that... I couldn't come up with any answers though, so finally I did the deed. After restarting all effected services things were fine and CPU usage has been normal for several hours now. Has anyone experienced anything like this with amavisd-new before?

Really I'm tempted to try something more modern I read about recently... but I cannot find the... show more


@Shelenn Ayres What is 'fake news'? The video I posted? Several times in the video he entertains the idea that it could all be bogus, and he doesn't have a history of discussing things that turn out to be false - but like I said, even in this video he proposes that it could be bogus and mentions the fact that Wolf's first book had some still unsubstantiated claims.

Or maybe you mean the document referred to here is 'fake news'? The one that the guardian has also purportedly reviewed. I don't know, I haven't looked in to it to be honest. So it may be the case.

I do see reason to take this information with cautious skepticism, but I don't see anything that outright screams 'fake news'. It seems well within the realm of possibility, considering what's in Mueller's actual report. I'd be more surprised to find out that Mueller didn't at all wrestle with the decision on indicting Trump, or not, and had the stance from the report all along. There was plenty of loud public polit... show more



@Daniel I know what you mean, most on the 'right' in the USA tout free speech as a top value, yet they blindly approve of this because Trump put his stamp on it. At one of his election rallies he once asked Russia to steal & leak documents and then thanked Wikileaks - such hypocrisy... but it doesn't even feel good to convince people of this anymore, because nothing changes, his supports don't care. I saw one in a chat recently suggest that the US "could use a dictatorship for a few years to straighten things out", as if would be fixed and go back to democracy afterwards... such fools.


Is there an inside joke going on here I don't know about? Is the flower poisonous?
