Philosophers say a good life doesn't have to be good or a life.

I got an email from No Starch Press.
They can't fulfil my order so I got a refund.

For some reason they can't ship to Australia. Not a lot of countries plus Australia just us.

That seems oddly specific and other places can still get here.


One single type of payment terminal (the Verifone H5000), a rather old platform, officially announced End of Life 2018 with some sort of support until 2023, brought down big parts of card payment all over Germany as one of the embedded certificates expired unnoticed on Tuesday.

Heisenberg and Schrödinger get pulled over for speeding.

The cop asks Heisenberg "Do you know how fast you were going?"

Heisenberg replies, "No, but we know exactly where we are!"

The officer looks at him confused and says "you were going 108 miles per hour!"

Heisenberg throws his arms up and cries, "Great! Now we're lost!"

The officer looks over the car and asks Schrödinger if the two men have anything in the trunk.

"A cat," Schrödinger replies.

The cop opens the trunk and yells "Hey! This cat is dead."

Schrödinger angrily replies, "Well he is now."

twitter bullshit, musk worship and misogyny 

This dude needs to talk to people outside IT they got it much worse.

Space drama with a political twist. This place is all to do with shapes and numbers which kind of provide a magical effect.

So what happens if someone barges in to your galaxy and upsets the count?
