Well, once again a tech company gives a service I don’t care for an overhaul I don’t want and tries to charge a fee I won’t pay.

I suspect when this doesn’t do the numbers they want they’ll try adding a user fee to oxygen as a retaliation.

Meanwhile in Britain in 1906…

Admittedly the Tories tried damned hard to take them away again on several occasions.

Best gaming of my life was on a SNES coupled to a janky sanyo portable.

Would be great if they could make it so that people could, y’know, get actual appointments with GPs too.

That’s why I ended my statement with “too”. It implicitly means both.

Spent some time there this year. A lot of ant-renewable sentiment.

But then every kid gets access to a musical instrument and lessons.

Best Norway fact I have is that their wine (and spirits) is nationalised. Anything over 4.75%.

You can only buy it from the government in places called Vinmonopolet (English: The Wine Monopoly), and it is directly taxed.

This meme is a fine vintage, obviously shows some wear, but that’s to be expected.

I have to ask how you came across this meme? Has it been in your family long?

Now, I know you wouldn’t want to part with it but for the sake of insurance we’d value this at… 100 meme points.

Ah, it has sentimental value. Can’t put a meme point price on that.

Feels very Black Mirror to me. Not a bad thing at all.

Here’s a thing. Yes. What you say is true… But when you have legitimate paying jobs that demand recent experience in retail, then this sort of thing becomes attractive to people that just want a fucking job.

Don’t blame people for doing this, blame the system for making them feel like they have to.

Near-flawless quantum teleportation demonstrated in groundbreaking experiment (studyfinds.org)

TURKU, Finland — Beam me up, Scotty! In a study that seems straight out of a “Star Trek” episode, an international team of researchers has achieved a remarkable feat in the realm of quantum teleportation. They have successfully conducted near-perfect quantum teleportation despite the presence of noise that typically...

Going to need a little more than “near-flawless” before I step near one of those pads. Also, don’t come at me with “it’s safer than driving”… If I have a crash I just have to reassemble my limbs, not my entire atomic structure.

I know, I was being sort of glib … But the internet doesn’t get sarcasm or gentle irony.

Y’know, I think I read this same hyperbolic reporting in the 80s in a New Scientist, and again in the 90s. For some reason teleportation went quiet in the early 2000’s as far as popular reporting went, but it looks like it is back.

I have a suspicion that, alongside space travel, there is this fascination in getting out of this place because we’ve fucked it up.

Web in the search, AI in the search, personal assistant in your files, things in your things that you don’t want, didn’t ask for and are struggling to extract.

(Idiots)… Way to roast normal people. Don’t know if they will ever recover. The best bit was putting it in brackets.

You are normal people.

I think the stabilisation wobble artifacts are harder to watch than actual jitter. The ones in the opening crawl across the buildings are brutal.

Americans are choking on surging fast-food prices. "I can't justify the expense," one customer says (www.cbsnews.com)

Kevin Roberts remembers when he could get a bacon cheeseburger, fries and a drink from Five Guys for $10. But that was years ago. When the Virginia high school teacher recently visited the fast-food chain, the food alone without a beverage cost double that amount....

You are framing this as an access issue rather than one of predation.

Fast food chains don’t make a cheap menu to help poor people experience their food, they do it to milk every bit of money from a populace.

Don’t expect social justice from corporate entities.

That’s a bit harsh. No aggression intended, or apparent.

Are you OK?

Absolutely loving the replies to this.

This is how the extended Linux community wins for me.

Sure we talk shit for fun. The Arch BTW stuff, the Gentoo shade and Slackware side-eye. But its all in jest, ultimately.

Well done.

UN votes to back Palestinian membership, prompting Israeli envoy to shred charter (www.theguardian.com)

The UN general assembly has voted overwhelmingly to back the Palestinian bid for full UN membership, in a move that signalled Israel’s growing isolation on the world stage amid global alarm over the war in Gaza and the extent of the humanitarian crisis in the strip. The move drew an immediate rebuke from Israel. Its envoy to...
