I love the Mandalorian and yes they mentioned Life Day, but if they could somehow mention what happened to Itchy (Chewbaca's son) or how the Cantina was closed down, I'd squee.

I played exactly one pickup tabletop game at a game store, ever
a guy got mad at me for using NSEW directions on a map in a fantasy setting because “they’d have different names for it” so I scribbled some shit and handed him a map that had the directions:
South (pronounced “sooth”)
he gave me the world’s dirtiest look and 5 minutes later when I described something as being “about ten bmiles morth by morthsqueast of here” he left the table and walked out of the shop
I never saw him again

I saw Jojo Rabbit today. It was something I'd wanted to see in theaters last year but missed.
It's the story of a young German boy in the 1940s who idolizes Hitler so much that he imagines him as his personal imaginary friend.
I won't say it's a perfect movie. It has pacing imperfections and struggles to be both funny and dramatic, but I found the film incredibly impactful and meaningful on many levels. I can see myself wanting to watch it again every couple of years.
This thread on Twitter is a very important read on how antisemities use terms and double standards to hide their hatred in a cloak of progressive concern.
Today Zoom reached a settlement with the FTC to close its security holes and protect its users better.
Do we trust our intimate conversations with doctors, colleagues, friends and family to this company?
Wouldn't it be good to join an online meeting platform that you can trust? That is owned by users and workers? That is not analysing user behaviour?

If the Maintainer of a Project is always sabotaging it and trashing collaboration for personal gain, the Project will lose its best contributors and fall apart.
So it is vital that large collaborative projects have skilled, mature, responsible, and respectful leadership.
I'm fairly sure that supporting Veterans isn't, or shouldn't be controversial...
The American electorate is focusing on the election outcome. The election outcome is crucial, but just as crucial is how we get there.
Even if Trump loses, Trumpism has won. There was no repudiation by millions of Americans of Trump- the popular is largely the same as it was in 2016. The US courts refused to indite him for violating the Emoluments Clause. The Senate refused to impeach him, and now when he threatens the democratic process, there is no large scale pushback by Republicans.
Oh and did I say it reminded me of 2000.
I should have said it also reminded me of 2004- of how united we were to defeat Bush and then Bush won.
And how in 2016, Clinton ran a nothing campaign against Trump, where she stood for nothing because "Trump will be worse" and yes he was worse, but we lost.
"We're less bad than the other guy" doesn't work! And the Democrats know it doesn't work because they keep doing it.
This race shouldn't be close. These margins shouldn't be close.
The Democrats told the progressive wing of the party to fall in line and they have, and yet again we lose to the greater of two evils.
I'm watching a documentary about Ralph Nader, a man I (indirectly) worked for in my youth, and I see how little has changed other than how much more terrible things got under Trump than I thought they could get.
If you haven't seen An Unreasonable Man, you should.
I'm so incredibly hurt, scared, and angry.
This election makes me think about 2000, about the way that the Democrats told the people that if we just shut up and got in line, we'd win, only now the stakes are that much bigger.
The Democrats ran a nothing campaign, like they did in 2016, with a candidate who stands for the status quo, where all our excitement was about getting "the other guy out" and building collations and it looks like we're likely going to lose, again....
You put me through hell shutting down a server, but my other server has maybe 15 minutes a day where it's unavailable, despite me complaining.
And you expect me not to move my infrastructure? Thanks for the >10 years of business. I'm out.
Now the next problem is everyone wants me to use email sign on, even if the mail server is on their equipment *sigh*.
