My git projects now have the default branch of 'main'.

Aaand kbdfans shipping notification says my keyboard is in Australia!

I had an idea for an ephemeral public message space on , but then I thought about how to deal with brigading, hate speech, moderation. perhaps it's not a good idea after all

"It's not even about George Floyd anymore."

Yeah, no kidding.

Don't beat protesters. Don't shoot reporters. Don't arrest journalists. Don't trample people with horses. Don't aim rubber bullets at the face. Don't tear gas entire neighborhoods. Don't violate people's rights.

So many basic tenets of policing being called into question again. And to think it all started with a simple request. Stop killing black people. Seems pretty reasonable to me, but the police declined. Now their every action is recorded and examined, they're covered in investigations from every angle, years worth of prior abuses are being dug up again, a larger than ever portion of the population hates them, and even elected officials, not just activists, are talking about defunding departments. Was it worth it?

Only way to end civil disorder is to pay us more overtime says agency responsible for causing the disorder.

:( why is my boost button missing! same on both firefox and chrome from windows and linux. Tusky on android seems to be fine.

"So they're allowed to riot and I'm not allowed to shoot them?"

Yes, pretty much but it's 7am, I'm still working through my first coffee and I don't have the energy to deliver a lecture on just how supremely racist both the US and Australia are and what that actually means.

Well, I just spent more on a single keyboard just now than I've spent on input devices over the last few decades of computer use combined....

Why did I have to discover proper mechanical switch keyboards when there's next to no stock of anything!

black aluminiuim KBD75 with aliaz 60g, Maxxkeys Grey&Blue keycaps and some screw in stabilizers. Phew.

Well, this is different from the bird site! Next I want to figure out how to view tweets in threads by default...
