@FiXato "Blocks" -- is that a data concept, or code-formatting, or...?

Ok, so, be straight (or gay, or pan, or whatever wiggles your guinea-pig) with me:

Why do people like Ruby on Rails?

Cynical answers are also okay, but I'm hoping to steelman my understanding of the mindset.

@nina
Sounds like someone seriously misunderstood the intent of the post... though I have to wonder what a better word would be. From another (but similar) context, I've heard that "collaborator" might be better?

@tindall I haven't used Audition, but I did use its predecessor -- CoolEdit Pro -- which I liked a great deal. Audacity's model is very similar to CEP's, but I do have a wish-list... starting with a right-click menu.

@deletescape If you're famous but not wealthy, that's like having accountability without power -- which I can't imagine being super-fun all the time.

The original post has been deleted (archived here) but as far as I know there has been no apology.

This is the 8th grade "Capstone Project" from my sister's younger kid:
Restaurant workers are often paid below a living wage, here's what you can do to help.

It's not exactly "burn down capitalism", but... baby steps. ^.^

I had no idea it was so easy to crack a Win7 system -- without even using a LiveCD or anything.

Wow.

@BalooUriza @Elizafox

The problem being, of course, that one machine replaces many workers -- otherwise it wouldn't be worth purchasing.

So the whole "yes automation replaces workers but also creates [higher-paying] jobs" is also full of holes.

Ultimately, all business needs to be collectively owned.

re: economics 

@Elizafox Are employers actually wondering this, though?

I thought it was all neolib politicians pretending there's a job glut in order to influence that subset of the votership which doesn't know any better.

re: instance block: pleroma.gnusocial.club 

@FiXato @dredmorbius Ugh, yes, I see. (That's why I did both, I guess -- Just in Case.)

This seems like an issue with sites that use JS to load data based on browser cookies -- difficult to archive without knowledge of the page's specific implementation details.

This just kinda shows how the webs are borked.

re: instance block: pleroma.gnusocial.club 

@dredmorbius I also got archive.org to snag it; links in the original post.

I know I opened up this tab for a reason...

(Should I have that printed on a t-shirt?)

@SetecAstronomy

Q. Why did the OctoPi get a DHCP lease?
A. [...something that somehow incorporates cephalopods, networking, and homelessness...] ...uh, so they wouldn't be kicked out of their apartment at the end of the month for making tentacle porn every time they tried to hold a LAN party?

This twerp @louis made a veiled death-threat towards one of my users.

We don't tolerate that kind of nonsense around here.

This post will stand as a record of the incident, and will be blocking louis's instance, gnusocial.club.
