On the Oakland schools thing
I'm still wondering if the kids are going to get suspended for walking out.
@sungo hmm, go?

DSTO is an acronym that some vets have been known to use. It means the dog is smarter than its owner.
I'm really surprised that there apparently isn't a "not made with prison labor" symbol for products, verified by a third-party group similar to the Non-GMO Project or the Vegan Society
When Americans buy products that say "Made in the USA" they expect the money to go into supporting local, well-paying jobs, not fueling private prisons who utilize slave labor. This is the desire regardless of political alignment. People need the ability to make an informed decision
BBC consultation on TV licences, Call to Action for UK peeps
The Tories are trying to force the #BBC into paying for free TV licences for the over 75s. This would cost the service £745m per year and effectively results in a 20% budget cut.
If you would like to have a public service broadcaster which doesn't axe the majority of its services, you can respond to this consultation that the BBC are running until February 12th: https://www.bbc.com/yoursay
Unix curmudgeon / kids these days
Like, what, did you not come of age in the brief era of the late 90s when CS was becoming mainstream and universities provided multi-user Unix environment to students for mail, newsgroup, and programming assignments?
@bgcarlisle send.firefox.com has solved this issue, for me at least.
