Some big news to round off the trifecta of our IRC gateways: our matrix bridge is now available! You can connect to foo:libera.chat where #foo is the channel.

A big thanks to @matrix for their support - we know a lot of our communities view Matrix access as a big deal!

The new freenode messages have gone past stupid and reached creepy:

"freenode is IRC. freenode is FOSS. freenode is freedom. […] It's a new world. We're so happy to welcome you and the millions of others."

Is democracy in Washington, DC, enhanced by the fact that many lawmakers don't live there and just fly in from their Democracities out in the nice places?

Is San Francisco enhanced by the fact that many extremely well-paid software engineers live there and enjoy a nice walkable urban environment while making automated laws that change the lives of billions, who they've never seen because they can't afford to live in that city, with the click of a mouse?

Both situations seem less than optimal.

I think I can now articulate that one reason i'm a cat person is that cats do not typically fall on the bootlicker/bootlickee spectrum like dogs typically do.

welp upgraded my wifi antenna which has made it such that I can stay connected in most of the house, but not outside. I'm in a mobile data dead zone so that's problematic.

need to rustle up $40 for a powerline wifi extender, there's already a powerline ethernet network here which is actually working pretty well on poor wiring with a bunch of noisy air conditioners on it.

aaaand first lockup on android, this is going well 🙄

Israel/Iran 

Ex-Mossad chief signals Israel behind Iran nuclear attacks

“The man who was responsible for these explosions, it becomes clear, made sure to supply to the Iranians the marble foundation on which the centrifuges are placed,” Dayan said. “As they install this foundation within the Natanz facility, they have no idea that it already includes an enormous amount of explosives.”

anybody know if a big old air conditioner seeming to cause rather worse of a brownout when the compressor kicks on is related to e.g. a capacitor that needs replacement or something like that??

the AC unit in my part of the house causes a serious flicker on lights & outlets in half the house when it starts up, and trips my UPS for a second every time as well.
