Really want to write a page on my site about why I dislike blogs and blogging but I'm not sure my thoughts on it are together enough to do that.

Campaign to bring back curly cables. Sign my petition. Boost if you agree.

installing 9front in a VM because I have no hardware for it. Looking forward to messing around with this environment. I could never switch to plan9, but it's interesting to me.

Other things I've been doing recently: using my midi keyboard to play visuals and "music"

sorry to anybody who is into alt-med, it's bullshit and does nothing. I'm not closed minded, just actually understand how a study works.

career match according to this site: naturopath. This site wants me to go into the snake oil industry. I feel like "naturopath" and "alternative therapist" being listed alongside genuine careers on this thing is slightly scary from a scientific literacy perspective.

my college's university application site literally uses a myers-briggs test to try and tell you what career you should do, I'm dying laughing at how stupid this is

finished building my new site! itwont.work/. It's very bare on content but hopefully that will change over time. So will the CSS.

⚛️ nuclear power is good and should be a vital part of cutting our reliance on fossil fuels ⚛️

I feel like I need to teach my class how to give presentations that don't totally suck. Writing your essay in 40 bullet points on 4 sides is not "presenting"

Is your son obsessed with "Lunix"?

BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operation system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War. It is based on a program called " xenix", which was written by Microsoft for the US government. These programs are used by hackers to break into other people's computer systems to steal credit card numbers. They may also be used to break into people's stereos to steal their music, using the "mp3" program.

Torovoltos is a notorious hacker, responsible for writing many hacker programs, such as "telnet", which is used by hackers to connect to machines on the internet without using a telephone.

Your son may try to install " lunix" on your hard drive. If he is careful, you may not notice its presence, however, lunix is a capricious beast, and if handled incorrectly, your son may damage your computer, and even break it completely by deleting Windows, at which point you will have to have your computer repaired by a professional.

If you see the word "LILO" during your windows startup (just after you turn the machine on), your son has installed lunix. In order to get rid of it, you will have to send your computer back to the manufacturer, and have them fit a new hard drive. Lunix is extremely dangerous software, and cannot be removed without destroying part of your hard disk surface.

writing yet another static site generator, because the world doesn't have enough of them already!

sorry to people on the studio hashtag that I accidentally misused!
