lol the matrix.to link shortener(?) to share e.g. a link to a matrix room, is literally not capable of opening that room in the Element client, at least from firefox on linux

@yogthos unfortunate higher-order effect of this: when pharma tweaks a drug into a form you can actually take (due to your metabolic variance) and then your health insurance parasite organization won't cover it because they claim it's one of those useless "evergreened" non-generics

@newt butts are so nice, I'm glad to live in a hellscape that at least has butts

@stardot I saw an animation of the Tonga pressure wave crossing the USA as reported by a bunch of barometers, pretty cool

NSO Group promised to stop selling tools to spy on journalists. A new report proves otherwise restofworld.org/2022/nso-pegas

kinda wild that a CPU discontinued in 2017 is still fetching close to $200

Omicron may be headed for a rapid drop in Britain, US

Scientists are seeing signals that COVID-19′s alarming omicron wave may have peaked in Britain and is about to do the same in the U.S., at which point cases may start dropping off dramatically.

The reason: The variant has proved so wildly contagious that it may already be running out of people to infect, just a month and a half after it was first detected in South Africa.

I really need to get a cheap alarm clock so I can get this damn Google surveillance puck out of my room. But it's extremely important I have another alarm to my watch and my phone is dead, so the puck remains.

I'm still gonna talk about #GameDev a lot on my main, but I'm probably going to start posting even more stream-of-consciousness stuff at @UnicornSausage!

@Mek101 @faoluin somebody who manages and/or curates large collections of stuff.

my first non fast food job turned out to be doing this at one of the aforementioned research labs for huge bibliographs of scientific citations. a lot of it had to do with lake sediments.

@faoluin yeah, I did some contracting with a quantum dot research lab for a while and ended up quitting mostly because they dicked with everyone's pay, but also partly because I got overruled by some exec who flew in from overseas and decided to do a bunch of shit the terrible way. it definitely happens in all types of human endeavor.

Reminder: tor 0.3.5 reaches it's end of life on 2022-02-01 (in 3 weeks from now).

Over 700 relays - about 7% of the network's guard capacity
currently still run this soon unsupported tor version.

@deutrino If you're interested in sticking with software development, another option to consider is industrial systems. Industrial automation is booming at the moment, with an increasing focus on data collection (from machines, not people), visualization, and reporting. It's not perfect or glamorous, but it pays.

Source: It's kinda what I do

@faoluin came back to this because I realized what you meant by front end etc in your original reply

I'm happy enough coding webshit personally, what turns it onerous for me is having to code it to the specifications of people who don't know what they're doing.

making a webshit UI or API for some piece of equipment is less likely to make me hate life than having to make somebody's tentacle-filled pile of PHP always worse and never better on their command.
