spent the last two days dealing with terrible headaches 😑 at least that presented an opportunity to do some low-effort reading, i'm currently learning how to be a good wife in the communist future (as envisioned in 1969). it's weird.

Some video of #InternationalWomensDay 2019 in:
· Raqqa (once ISIL's "capital city").
· Kobane (where ISIL's defeat began).
· Aleppo (because it was nice).

ich gebe ein paket ab. statt längste + kürzeste seite wird längste + mittlere gemessen. nach mehreren minuten diskussion, was denn jetzt die kürzeste seite ist, lässt sich ein kompromiss erst erreichen, nachdem ich das paket auf die seite lege und den adressaufkleber auf die andere seite klebe. das ist jetzt ne stunde her und ich bin immer noch perplex. 😶

Ich mag Telefonieren echt nicht, aber Mail ist auch manchmal schlimm. 😑
Ich so: *schlage vier Optionen vor*
Antwort so: *Ja.*
ok. na denn. 🙃

our hackspace needs a liveact for our party on April 12th! It's a space-communism-themed party with lots of blinkenlights, so if you're playing , , & want to meet nice people & get paid to visit the german hinterland (weimar), we'd be very happy to have you over! ✨ 🚀 💖 and if you don't - well, maybe you can boost this so others might see it :)

i wish other countries would steal the bodies of prominent Brits and Americans to put on display in their museums.

not political leaders, but bodies of people we actually care about. like if Egypt just swiped the bodies of Stan Lee and David Bowie to put on display like "we just want to raise awareness and respect for their beautiful culture! $10 admission!"

i completely forgot about this song and rediscovered it by chance. i'm glad i did, it's a perfect fit for my current mood, and it's wonderful to listen to this way too loud at 2am ;)

The EU is starting a full on war on general purpose computing. A proposed law will make it impossible to install custom software on WiFi routers, smartphones and embedded devices!

This is insane. The hearing ends today. Please give your feedback:

So you wanna be an anarchist... Show more

that reminds me of the time i sold a reel-to-reel tape machine on ebay and also received an angry mail about it not working. asked the guy if he had tried with a tape, as the machine had a tape sensor and would shut down if there was no tape. never got an answer, but got a positive rating a day later. of course old men can never admit to being wrong, that would shatter their worldview. it's kind of fun in it's own twisted way to see the excuses they come up with. 😁

tech-support is terrible even outside IT. guy sent a somewhat angry mail about me selling him a broken cd changer. i thought long and hard about what stupid thing he could've done...and then asked him if he'd used the supplied screws or longer ones to install it. bingo. he had jammed the mechanism by driving a screw into it. there are big bold letters stamped into the case that tell you to use short screws. he took the screws out, it works now. obviously there was no apology. 🙄

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
