Excellent work. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Calling a daemon a service is a matter of semantics and is a naming choice made by Windows in particular, not by proprietary operating systems in general.

Mind as a computer metaphors are seriously fucking annoying because prats like you get too caught up in making a 1 to 1 mapping between elements of either system and stress the comparison to the point of uselessness.

If you don't STFU I'm going to astrally pastebin your root chakra passwords.

This is so great.

So I've just now realized
Somewhere down the line
I earned my table place
4 stars at my own pace
Thus I truly Deserved It! 

Gosh, I always wanted to be a Hermetic terrorist ever since I first heard of Hermes.
That kid was my favorite Greek god when I was growing up.
Troublemaker, entrepreneur, awesome kicks, marvelous lyre, all that AND a pile of rocks!


Gonna set to work writing today. Left my Sunday open for the purpose.

First project is the GRIN bit EOC started up. Never leave home without it!

You have arrived!

I like that guy. His articles on fallacies are the bomb.

Excellent. I've pretty much only listened to his podcasts but I'm relieved that his articles pass the Nigel test, so far.

Stock buybacks were once considered a form of illegal stock manipulation, until 1982, when President Ronald Reagan’s Securities and Exchange Commission chair John Shad (a former Wall Street CEO) loosened the rules.

Even the sky is symbolically perfect.  Overcast and grey as hell.

Definitely. There's a lot going on in that picture.

The photo quality itself looks like a still image taken from surveillance footage.

I like the appropriately raggedy flag as well. Very fitting.

Your employers are criminals, dude. Wow.

Trust me, it's really NOT just his. Or the UK.

And really, really, not a minority either.

ETA - Well that sounds condescending as fuck. Not the intention/tone.

I happen to live in the asshole of the West coast, but everyone I've worked for has turned out to be either criminally negligent (drivers well known for checking their phones while driving vans full of people resulting in speeding through red lights and many episodes of high speed near misses yet management continues to let them drive, repeatedly returning from group field trips without individuals who have severe mental retardation and are essentially small children in adult bodies), requiring outright fraud as part of their verbal policy, and all of them engaged in wage theft (requiring work related duties to be done off the clock, not fixing "errors" on their timesheets but only if it screws the employee).

I just walked out of my last job after accruing enough savings to get me by while I look for legit work. I knew it was going to be bad here but I wasn't prepared for how prevalent the nepotism, incompetence, and casual fraud actually would be. And that's just the clearly illegal behavior, which is just the tip of the shitberg that I've personally witnessed. I know they all aren't this way, but holy hell is it hard to find an even halfway decent place to work. You wouldn't know this is the West coast from visiting here, you'd be positive you're in a depressed Midwest shithole full of shady scumbags that just happens to have an astonishing number of bike lanes that no one uses.

My adhd ridden friends won't sit still for more than 30 seconds to understand anything besides QWER and league tier lists.

What's a good quick pitch of it.
I've tried before but they keep saying that it's "le so randum" and only liked by scene girls or 2deep4you type people.

Like how do I make a reasonable pitch, especially with how it is now a relatively unheard of thing.

I wouldn't fuck my friends with your dick, so why do you want to fuck yours with mine?
