So I have a pair of Avocent DSR4010s (16-port IP KVM boxes). I can only use them as local KVMs because you can only connect to them via their DSView management software, which is super proprietary and you can't even get licenses for the old versions anymore. So let's look inside!

If anyone wants to know how my sports mom attempt is going, I just did a 2-hour shift at concessions and made a cocaine joke and the mother who was working with me very patiently explained to me why I shouldn't make jokes like that in front of children.

Gov. Hogan spent much of presser bashing Baltimore (calling it a "poster child for the basic failure to stop lawlessness" and attacking S.A. Mosby for, he claimed, "refus[ing] to prosecute crime"). But Baltimore actually increased funding for police: baltimoresun.com/politics/bs…

How copaganda works. Maryland Governor claims he's "re-funding" the police. No police departments were defunded. And Maryland's increased every year: 2019: $408 Million 2020: $442 Million 2021: $457 Million 2022: $471 Million 2022: (after newly-announced $150 more): $621 Million
Replying to @brynstole
Hogan says he's putting $150 million into law enforcement and billing the funding as his "re-fund the police initiative." Per the governor, the money will go for recruiting, salary increases, hiring bonuses, gear and equipment, victim services.

Why did you write a language just for me
Replying to @hundredrabbits
We tried other projects like it, before building Uxn, we wanted the device handling of NGA, the opcode packing of the J1, the mnemonics of the 6502. And also DIV/MUL because we’re fancy like that. The result was Uxn.

Shaming men for taking parental leave is a great way to make sure gender-based disparities in pay and promotions never go away.

My “I’m not into golden showers” T-shirt has people asking a lot of questions already answered by the shirt
At NRSC retreat, Trump continued false claims of fraud, urged GOP to stick together and relitigated much. “I'm not into golden showers," he told the crowd. "You know the great thing, our great first lady--'That one,' she said, 'I don't believe that one.'” washingtonpost.com/politics/…

I mean, it was a pretty remote chance that I was ever going to play a CoD game, but I guess “hijack the rootkit” is a much more interesting sort of CoD game…

These tests have generated so many wrongful convictions that some courts refuse to allow them as evidence. Even so, many prison systems still rely on them to punish people for drugs they don’t have. documentcloud.org/documents/…

I had to search around for a brand to record because I am not trying to call out a single person here, a TON of you are doing this -- especially other disabled people who are not blind or visually impaired. This one only has *seven* in it -- y'all with 15, 20, 30 flags? N. O.

This is wild. Would be major news for Python developers
Python without the GIL by Sam Gross: docs.google.com/document/u/0… definitely the most interesting read of 2021. 🤯
