Terminating Service for 8chan. https://new.blog.cloudflare.com/terminating-service-for-8chan/
It's official: #Cloudflare is dropping support for 8chan. They specifically mention the recent White Supremacist shootings and their connections to 8chan.
"We just sent notice that we are terminating 8chan as a customer effective at midnight tonight Pacific Time. The rationale is simple: they have proven themselves to be lawless and that lawlessness has caused multiple tragic deaths."
Is this the worst code in Github? https://github.com/raxod502/TerrariaClone
It has an open issue titled, "Anyone who looks at this code instantly becomes insane." https://github.com/raxod502/TerrariaClone/issues/19
The README says, "… I produced 11,000 lines of, to date, the most atrocious code I have ever seen in my life. I make it available here mostly as a cautionary tale of what can happen if you don't pay attention to the quality of your code."
You can focus any window in the sphere, choosing it with a hand action, at which point it centers and expands, without spherical mapping distortion. Basically it pops out of the sphere and into the visual space right in front of you.
There is a popup menu with a listing of the window groups, so you can jump the sphere to that group. Other menu controls let you save or restore groups, size them smaller or larger or otherwise manage the windows.
So, what do I mean by, "… my idea of a perfect desktop?"
Imagine you are sitting in the center of a sphere. The inner surface of the sphere is your desktop and you have windows arranged around it, possibly grouped by project or use-case. You have a foot control that can rotate the sphere on two axis, x and y. (Rotation speed is slow to avoid VR sickness.)
Moving the #Linux #desktop to another reality. https://www.collabora.com/news-and-blog/news-and-events/moving-the-linux-desktop-to-another-reality.html
This is cool as hell! They have made it possible to view and manipulate desktop windows in #VR using googles. This is halfway to my idea of a perfect desktop.
The tag #MoscowMitch is trending over on the birdsite. I think anyone with a birdsite account should pile on until it gets the top trending slot.
From Trump to Johnson, nationalists are on the rise – backed by billionaire oligarchs. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/jul/26/trump-johnson-nationalists-billionaire-oligarchs
"The politicians who most loudly proclaim their patriotism and defence of sovereignty are always the first to sell their nations down the river. It is no coincidence that most of the newspapers promoting the nativist agenda, whipping up hatred against immigrants and thundering about sovereignty, are owned by billionaire tax exiles, living offshore."
I have some different questions to ask, of everyone…
(a) Are all human beings inherently equal and worthy, without regard to skin color?
(b) If you disagree, do you consider yourself a racist or not? If not, how do you justify not being racist while also believing skin color makes you more or less worthy? (Maybe you're just xenophobic? What?)
(c) If you agree, are there any things about your behavior or voting choices you need to change in order to not be a hypocrite?
A question for conservatives: what if the left was right on race? https://www.vox.com/2019/7/23/20697636/trump-race-gop-conservatism-racism
Jane Coaston asks, "What if, in truth, the conservative movement’s inability to self-police itself against #racism and establish firm guardrails against racists in the movement has resulted in an American right increasingly beholden to racism and racist arguments?"
Harvard #Business School and the Propagation of Immoral Profit Strategies. https://www.newsweek.com/2017/04/14/harvard-business-school-financial-crisis-economics-578378.html
There have always been those who place personal and business profit over morality and even basic human dignity. But Milton Friedman and the Harvard Business School devaluing morality and ethics, and encouraging 'whatever you can get away with' as a business tactic, is pretty much unadulterated #evil.
There are times when it's a REALLY GOOD THING no one else can know what's going on inside your head, that stuff you wouldn't tell anyone. The important thing to remember is, this is true of everyone else as well.
Not everyone will like you. It's OK. You aren't required to like them either. Just try to be polite anyway, unless they are being a complete asshole about it. In that case tell them to go fuck themselves.
Whenever you are past the edge, out in the wind, look for me.
