did not expect to see a snippet from Plato's Symposium in the new Lil Nas X video, but of course it's Aristophanes' speech (ἐπειδὴ οὖν ἡ φύσις δίχα ἐτμήθη, ποθοῦν ἕκαστον τὸ ἥμισυ…, "since their natural form had been cut in two, each longed for its own other half…" Sym 191a perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?)

*Harry Potter voice* I can't wait to graduate hogwarts so I can join wizard NATO and enforce the repayment of high interest loans foisted on developing countries by the wizard world bank

Hey does anyone have something uplifting about the world?

Quinn boosted

if you are someone who has experienced severe depression (however you personally define that) and you've personally found a book helpful in coping, please recommend it.

boosts welcome.

please do not suggest a book unless it specifically meets these very simple criteria.

H'okay, Sundogistani Public Radio is back online and streaming at radio.reclaim.technology/strea for all your listening needs (assuming your listening needs happen to correlate to what I feel like listening to at that moment)

NFT sucks, it's bad for the environment, it's bad for creator's rights (which honestly have it rough enough as it is) and it encourages even more predatory funny money bullshit in the "art world" which mostly just means ninnies with too much money trading mainstream art to show off to one another how rich they are

and for anyone who might wanna say "just mint NFT on your own work and profit from it"

it's still environmentally bad, and minting NFT costs money to begin with

fuck NFT

We finally managed to dump the BootROM of the ARM7 core of the Nintendo DSi.

Not much time has been spent on reversing it yet, but expect more to come in the following days/weeks/months.
