or alienation? πŸ˜†

60 yo male white dog, but atypical and anti-authoritarian as hell. Bad Merkin . Boring hetero/monogamous/settled but embrace all non-asshole beings.

Former street punk/fighter, peaceful unless provoked. Instinctively hated by pigs, judges, and priests -- it's mutual. Much better w/critters.

Tech hardware/software pro but not geeky. user/admin, systems/utilities programmer. Self employed. lover.

It only just occurred to me that what I mean by "street punk" in my intro isn't what folks might think. Far from mohawks and chains and shit, we evaded pigs by blending into the crowd of normies watching them search for us. 😎

The funniest escape ever was when two of us sat outside of Bartha's Donuts in Hawaiian Gardens, CA watching the LASD play stupid pig games with cars and a helicopter. πŸ˜†

On such a cooler. In last night's tournament I was all-in pre-flop as a 71% favorite and got smoked by a full house. Tonight I was all-in on the flop as a 66% favorite and got smoked by runner-runner two pair. FML. πŸ˜†

I loves me some online poker. 😎

Some aggressive goofball just gave me half of his short stack buy-in (all that he had left at the time) and then another short buy-in in less than twenty minutes.

Getting back into online poker after several years away has been a challenge, but I quit this evening at 2x my starting stack so I'm calling it a win.

Played enough to qualify for a tournament this afternoon and another on Sunday, so 'tis good. 😎

I've never considered myself a pedant but it still makes me wince when people use the word data as a singular noun.

A week from today it will be Stanislov Petrov Day. I was on duty at a missile warning radar on 1983-09-26 and saw no missiles that day so I always celebrate. Never mind Able Archer a month and a half later...

"Lauren Boebert is part of a dangerous religious movement that threatens democracy, experts say"

Um, sure, it takes an expert to see the obvious that so many of us have been hollering about since the rise of the neoliberal/neoconservative/evangelical troika in the late 1970s.

My new alternative term for "smartphone" is "virtual proctologist."

"Please do not reply to this message" tells me that you're not at all ashamed that your e-commerce system is a massive fucking kludge.

The air smells very strongly of raw sewage from the sewage treatment plant to more than a mile downriver. 😞

The county emergency alert system will flood my device with flash flood warnings every time it rains, but not a peep about this. Hmm. Wonder which politricksters' asses are hanging out.

If "inflation is too much money competing for too few goods" then why aren't we seeing retailers holding daily auctions at which consumers compete for goods?

The captive woman brought home about 20 pounds of garlic and is now processing it. Lovin' how the house smells. 😎

Burning in the new battery in my ancient netbook. About four days from now my double-capacity battery will be ready for long periods of neglect interrupted by too-long charge and float cycles. πŸ˜†

The old netbook has always been crap in X but makes a fine console client for network services, i.e. mail reading and SSH terminal sessions. Ain't no sense buying new for that stuff.

If you've got Plex but haven't got an email from them recently, they've just had a data breach and want all passwords changed.

Getting access to my Plex Media Server restored after changing my password was a pain in the ass. What marvelous technology. 😞

Hmm... Things are fubar because of the war in Ukraine, eh? And that war is not yet another in a long series of what must ultimately be vain attempts to shore up Nixon's petrodollar?

PayPal's updated TOS are so overtly Fortress America shit.

"U.S. business accounts will not be able to receive personal transactions from PayPal accounts outside the U.S. starting October 31, 2022.

U.S. PayPal accounts will not be able to send personal transactions to business accounts outside the U.S. starting October 31, 2022."

I wonder how long before United Snakes card issuers ban transactions with Chinese (or more generally BRICS) payment processors.

Nah, not a collapsing empire.

I feel old. Used to be that we called a tiny house a homemade camp trailer, unless it was fixed in place and was called a shack. πŸ˜†

It seems fitting that in Fortress Amerika the trend in home decorating is the greys and drab tones associated with the edifices of prisons and other oppressive institutions of the state.

Do you still wear your mask?

Please boost i wanna get more people to vote

To explain my deleted toot: Some random guy just came this || close to starting something with my wife in a public place over her wearing a mask. He changed his mind, with obvious difficulty, when he saw me.

One wonders how so little thought can go into aggressive behavior with it being so obvious that, as they say, you don't know who you're fucking with.
