Is it common that people pay bills manually? Either electronically or by going to a post office/bank?

More and more online/financial activities are just arbitrage on low-information consumers.

Present just enough complexity that most people don’t have the time or the inclination to investigate something and services get away with brazenly exploiting it.

@0xf0 I’m pretty sure that’s at least 10% of the logs

No, I absolutely can't think of a case when a british leader was a cunt and that lead to a country gaining independence from it.

Ukpol, work 

@kyzh what the actual fuck

All this usenet hoopla reminds me that I still have IRC chatlogs from 2002 somewhere

What a missed opportunity to title this

“ICMP packets over IPv6 only want one thing and it’s disgusting”

They missed the headline of the week.

@randomgeek heh I would get one if I’d still commute to an office these days.

I’m spoiled by two model01s at home(office) right now

My next book is ATTACK SURFACE, sequel to Little Brother and Homeland: it's a technothriller about a surveillance techie who goes home and learns the weapons she helped build are used against the racial justice movement founded by her best friend.

Discworld 

You know what’s great about the universe Terry Pratchett created?

1. It covers a huge intellectual spectrum, from young adult fiction to rarified sociological discourse

2. The main message is about being kind and human

@jennie I wonder which shitposter will register

thicc.surgery

first.

I want to say that running an instance is not profitable - most of them are run at a loss because most don't have Patreons. This isn't a business - this isn't politics - this is a hobby, a service offered so friends can be made and a space offered to do so.

I guarantee you no successful instance is doing this for "clout" or for profit or good PR. That's simply no good motivator for running one and the ones that start that way always, and always will, crash and burn.

It's always nice to see the fascist party implode.

Greens seem to be making modest gains, along with other meh parties.
