the xbox 360 is about as old now as the sega mega drive/genesis was when the xbox 360 came out

I have no idea if this is parody or not. This argument is that the new M1 Macbook Air looks just like the Intel one.

> How will strangers even know that your new Air is an M1, rather than just an old Intel jalopy? How will the style-conscious be able to casually open it on a plane and make their fellow passengers sneer with envy?

The idea is that I just print out however many of these elements I need to hold all my CDs (possibly varying the width of the individual elements to hold thicker or thinner cases), line them all up on a couple of threaded rods, and voilà

Great vid from Legal Eagle about the US election lawsuits:

I had no idea the US election system was THIS CLEAN. My hat's off to the election commissioners for following the procedure so perfectly that (so far) there isn't a single lawsuit over anything I would call significant.

Tempted to build my own Prusa i3 clone from parts :thinking_happy: but on the other hand it hasn't been very long since I got my first 3D printer either

@tamperehacklab Vinkki: kun teidän etusivulla on jo linkki tähän Mastodon-profiiliin, niin siihen linkkiin kannattaa lisätä HTML-attribuutti rel='me' (eli siitä tulisi muotoa <a rel='me' href=...). Kun tekee näin niin Mastodon lisää automaattisesti "verifioitu"-merkin teidän profiilin nettisivu-urlin kohdalle joka varmistaa että tämä on "aito" Tampere Hacklabin Mastodon-käyttäjä.

(esimerkkinä voi katsoa vaikka minun profiilia ja vurpo.fi:n HTML:ää)

Interesting words: the Finnish word for "violence" "väkivalta" consists of "väki" which can mean either "force" or "strength" or similar, but can also be a collective word for "people", and "valta" which means something similar to "power" or "rule". The word that means "violence" could alternatively be interpreted as "people's rule" entirely grammatically.

Looking up the history online, it looks like the second meaning of "väki" is a bit more recent than the "force"/"violence" meaning though.

many people forget that Stalin himself came from the great state of Georgia

Neither Trump nor Biden is going to be my president (thankfully), so why do I care about the election? Because the attitudes that Trump has given a huge worldwide boost to are clearly visible here as well. Maybe if the Americans are able to elect someone who doesn't actively promote straight up being antisocial, then those attitudes where I live will have less air under their wings too. I know many of them admire Trump.
Also, Trump 100% stands for the establishment, don't let him fool you.

uspol, not presidential 

couldn't you not have phrased this a little more confusingly

fuck the political compass. The political compass has ruined a generation's understanding of politics
