Aristotle was an amazing philosopher, who shocked other philosophers of his time with ideas such as "things do move and change" and "not everything is fucking water"

It was as trivial as cloning the ports tree and setting CONFIGURE_ARGS += --disable-assembly. Now, to get on with actually writing the program I wanted to write 😂

It runs! Compiling with --enable-assembly=no was a surprisingly easy fix. Now I need to see if I can do this with the ports infrastructure instead of a source tarball...

Google wants to build a "useful" quantum computer by decade's end in order to solve things like world hunger and climate change and lmao fucking hell. We already know exactly how to solve both of those things but no countries with the resources to do either of those things want to actually do them.

Having a functioning quantum computer isn't going to do a fucking thing. fucking tech companies.

In light of this ominous news about IRC, I would like to encourage you to give Matrix a look. It is better in every way.

i'm here on the timeline of mastodon dot social, a federated, decentralized social media platform

Instead of finding the correct answer, Mathematica painted some clouds instead

oh lord oh no it's time to upgrade mastodon and I don't remember how I configured it at all send help

why is LaTeX the least-ass-looking FOSS presentation software by miles? trying to make anything halfway decent in LibreOffice is genuinely upsetting... I think I'm going to have to invest some time making a decent set of defaults for it

Amazon had sales income of €44bn in Europe in 2020 but paid no corporation tax

Our tiny not-for-profit based in Ireland pays tax at the full rate. Meanwhile, Bezos doesn’t know what to do with his money and we don’t know if we can pay the rent next year.
