Clayton County, the home of the late John Lewis, turned Georgia blue for Joe Biden. Donald Trump is losing his presidential election because of Clayton County.

Yes, as history has shown us, nothing stops the rising tide of fascism like neoliberal austerity politics treading water against an opposition Senate. twitter.com/briantylercohen/st

Correct. The factually accurate narrative is not that the election is close but that millions of American are struggling to overcome massive suppression & disenfranchisement enabled by a white power structure that refuses to allow the realization of democracy in USA twitter.com/emdubin/status/132

looks like the queues have all cleared out! holler if you notice anything strange

still quite a few jobs in the queues. should be better once those clear out

tilde.zone is back up and running on a different physical host. added some ram and a couple cpu cores and it's on ssd now too. should be more stable and help spread the load of all the vms

Republicans are Very Mad (again) about my appearance. This time they’re mad that I look good in borrowed clothes (again).

Listen, if Republicans want pointers on looking your best, I’m happy to share.

Tip #1: Drink water and don’t be racist

I've said it before, but it bears repeating. There is one place in the world where a map of cases & deaths reveals a straight line, with a huge amount of disease on one side, very little on the other.
Where? The 3000+ mile border US/#Canada
It's stark.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

will be a bit slow for a while until we catch up with all the federation stuff that was missed while down

just got the database reimported. sorry for the extra downtime! we're back with the correct utf8 encoding! :D
