@Aleums It has been 15 years since my first ollie and you betcha I still check to make sure I can still do one every time I see a skateboard. Fuck getting old.

@Mainebot Maybe add a mode with xrandr? You might possibly need a newer hdmi cable. Is dual link dvi or display port available?

@Deaen a virtual machine can do passthrough, so there's no reason to dual boot. I run some arduino programming tools in a virtualbox win7 vm with usb passthrough.

its cool how we are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on self driving car research when that level of funding and research commitment could massively improve public transit

I have an idea. What if you had a pcmcia ethernet card (with a common chipset) residing on the same board and connected to an onboard arm cpu with wifi. You could run a broswer render proxy on the arm and browse the modern web with any old 90s laptop. The only custom code foolery to write would be a web interface to choose a wifi access point. Call it browsercard.

#Assange is in a UK prison for publishing evidence about the killing of journalists & US war crimes in #Iraq. @DanielMOakes @abcnews has been referred by Aus police for prosecution for revelations about alleged Australian war crimes in #Afghanistan. Think about that. #auspol Don't Extradite Assange: "We are looking at a situation where a journalist, editor and source are being prosecuted for releasing information that informs our understanding about war crimes" @suigenerisjen during #Collatera..

I am Ojibwe more than I am any particular European creed. My grandfather had the language of his people beaten out of him in a Catholic school he was forced to attend, and when he was older, they drafted him to go fight some other people fighting colonialism in Vietnam. At one point in his life he stole a beer truck and redistributed it to his tribe and the event culminated in a standoff with an armed standoff with the police--he had rigged his house to explode. The judge decided to let him off the hook, she thought he needed help more than jail. He continued to live selflessly, his house was open to all who needed a place to crash, so long as they cleaned up after themselves. He eventually died due to a rare cancer related to agent orange exposure. His story is undeniably badass but one of a man driven to the edge time and time again by the oppression of his people, my people, by this country.

I am Ojibwe. Fuck America.

I think I understand blank keycaps now. It's the feeling of looking at your keyboard in futility, and then just giving up and moving on with your life.
