  • Damnit. Got me. I’ve been a programmer for the better part of nearly 20 years but I was a math-heavy engineer first and I still freaking read that as “two-factorial”.

  • Proton VPN’s no-logs policy confirmed by an external audit
  • “Trust me bro, I ain’t keeping logs.”


    “You don’t need to trust us, we don’t want you to trust us when we say ‘we don’t keep logs’. We have an unbiased and unconflicted third-party audit our service every year. You can review their findings for yourself here.”

    Trust me, bro.

  • I Am Not Always Very Attached To Being Alive: Living With Passive Suicidal Ideation
  • Nihilism can be incredibly liberating—IF one is willing to put in the hard work of self-actualization. Finding meaning in an apathetic universe is inherently difficult. Way easier, but less fulfilling, to just float on wherever.

    Recognizing life’s inherent meaninglessness not as a source of despair but as an opportunity to live more fully and freely allows one to create their own meaning, focus on the present, and find joy in the experiences and relationships that life offers.

    I mean, it’s also not permission to be a completely selfish narcissist asshole either—what we do and say does matter to others; but the universe is billions of years old and will continue to exist for gazillions more. Might as well make the best of it while you can.

  • Costco raising membership fee for the first time in years - but hot dog price remains
  • I miss the supreme.

    If you miss the expanded pizza toppings offerings they used to have, write an email to [email protected]. Not only is he the head honcho, but he’s been through all levels of the company, including EVP of merchandising for a time so he has a unique perspective on what Costco’s customers (members) value.

    Here’s a template (AI gen’d, but it’s good.):

    Subject: Request to Return Supreme Pizza to Costco Food Court

    Dear Mr. Vachris:

    I hope this message finds you well. I am writing as a loyal Costco member to express my sincere request for the return of the Supreme (and other toppings selections) Pizza to the food court menu across all Costco locations.

    The Supreme Pizza has been a favorite for many members, including myself, due to its delicious taste and variety of toppings. Its absence has been greatly missed, and I believe reintroducing it would be highly appreciated by a significant number of members.

    Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to the possibility of enjoying Supreme Pizza at Costco again soon.

    Best regards,

    [Your Name] [Your Membership Number] [Your Contact Information]

  • It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose
  • 1 if that is Emperor Georgiou. The shit talking would be nonstop entertainment and I’m all in for that. Well, she might kill me, but that’s not a bad way to get out of a 12 hour shuttle trip.

    Edit. Fuck, she might put me in an agonizer when we arrive. Maybe this isn’t the right path. But she is super hot and interesting so maybe still worth.

  • Copium
  • You’re right, and I apologize. I was kind of being a dick. Tough day, and it was unfair to take that out on the world. I respect your right to have and voice an opinion, and although my intent was not to squelch or suppress I acknowledge that that is the effect of my message.

    I will leave my messages there, downvotes and mistake and all. Steel sharpens steel.

  • HDD or SSD for a home server?
  • I don’t think an SSD is the right choice here. SSDs have a limited lifespan that’s majority driven by the number of writes that happen to a certain block. Reads are cheap and near infinite though.

    When you’re talking about a Lemmy instance, mail server, etc. my mind thinks this is likely to be many writes with several read-once ops. This is a better use case for a HDD.

    A media server that oriented towards most consumption (reading) would be better for SSD.

  • AOC files articles of impeachment against Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito
  • She’s a firebrand—that’s not an insult. But it is a fact that if the DNC puts her to run, she will mobilize a lot of voters who may otherwise sit this one out. Hard to say definitively how many on either side; but I think she’s likely more hated by the rightwing base than she is loved by the left wing/centrist base.

    I don’t think it would be a good strategic move in this cycle. Although I’d love to see her in the Oval Office and would vote that way should the chance arise.
