Probably their refurbishment process needs some more memory as well…

To the person who, two years ago, “returned” 4×8GB of RAM to the seller in a box that said 4×16GB: thanks a lot, asshole.

They then sold it back to me as refurbished 4×16GB. I only noticed two days ago and now they won’t exchange it saying I should have noticed immediately.

Why is my hackintosh so slow?

Two of my favourite things on mastodon

1. Finding cool interesting new people you would never come across otherwise
2. Long self threads of people hammering out ideas
3. Letting the baffling memes and shitposting I don't understand wash over me like tears in the rain

Just found out you can’t put scope identifiers in URLs, which essentially means browsers don’t support connecting to link-local IPv6 addresses (because these need a scope identifier).

A little disappointed in the world right now.

It’s not “not now”, Apple. It’s never. Go away. Fuck off. Leave my device in peace. Go back to your cursed lands, @apple@twitter.com. Thou art not welcome here.

1993: On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog

2018: The Internet is run by five mega corporations and not only do they ALL know you're a dog, they also know your preferred brand of kibble, your recent interest in flea powder and whether you've been spayed or neutered.

Noreply email addresses are the worst. In addition to being hostile to customers who are denied a way to directly respond, they also deny customer service departments the opportunity of placing inquiries directly within a context.

here's a thing that is annoying to me: when a company takes *any* sign of engagement with their site as an invitation to re-add me to all of their spam that I unsubscribed from the *last* time I used their site (most recently: getting a promotional e-mail with like a t-shirt to buy or something from atlassian because I logged into my bitbucket account for the first time in a few months)

Anyone remember when phones’ alarms would go off even when the phones were turned off. Of course that was before the iPhone.

Every time I warm up to Star Trek Discovery, it does some tiny thing that ruins it for me. Why a tiny detail should ruin an entire show I don’t know. It starts nagging me and slowly but surely begins taking over my mind. And what really gets me is that most of these tiny details are really insignificant and could easily have been done “right” by the showrunners.

Mozilla was unable to oppose DRM because Apple, Google, and Microsoft would have gone ahead with it anyway and Mozilla would have lost even more of its userbase as people fled to browsers that would play their Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, and soon YouTube since YouTube is adding DRM.

The obvious conclusion is that user-friendly piracy is imperative for our freedom. We need easier-to-use tools both for breaking DRM and for sharing the results of breaking DRM.
