uh oh. now i want to work with bluetooth. get this zigbee out of my sight!


Me: Fuck. Printer won’t print this PDF. Hmm. The driver I made for PPC works. Let me see if I can port it at 4 in the morning on half-an-hour’s sleep.

Computer: Fuck you, I reject your half ass spaghetti, I won’t boot anymore.

Me: Fuck I need this computer in an hour, no time to fix (wipe, re-install, copy home directory from backup)

Computer: That home directory has a lot of stuff you shouldn’t have copied. I’m not going to resume from sleep anymore. Have a fun day.

Me: (I shouldn’t do this stuff when I don’t sleep)


idk if it’s what you’re talking about, but the stereotyping of the global south in western movies has been driving me insane recently. it’s too bad because my partner just wants to watch a movie, but it’s totally ruined for me by the racist Orientalism that’s frequently present.

Example (with stereotypes): we were watching a movie the other week which was set in Mexico (plot twist: we live in Mexico too). The white protagonist gets a drink at the store, and the first Mexican woman with lines in the movie immediately sleeps with him (Mexican women are loose). There’s just random shootings at the beach which don’t serve the plot at all (Mexico is violent and uncivilised). The entire movie all the Mexican people are presented as just so interested in this Br*tish guy, with no character dev beyond their interaction with him. The protagonist’s cab driver leads an armed group to rob the protagonist (can’t trust them Mexicans). The entire film painted a ridiculously terrible picture of the country. What’s insane is that the movie didn’t have to. It would have been easy to create the exact same film without doing these things.

It’s too bad. I feel like I can’t enjoy anything anymore.

I don’t know, but given the intensity of American propaganda around the globe, I wouldn’t be surprised if some folks have been deceived into falling for the Yankee lies.


not the way I do it. I’ve found it best to do 45 minutes of shitposting for every 15 minutes of working. can’t steal my surplus value if I don’t give it to them lmao


Fox News accidentally recognising EZLN’s autonomy lmao


i will waste days on a hobby project and let work accumulate until i’m getting phone calls abt it. lol

edit: I am literally eschewing work right now to instead focus on a personal project to recognise speech patterns of a user’s comments to detect and map their alt accounts across platforms (not lemmy, this is a reddit/discord project of mine)




didn’t even know that was a community lmao



lmao. (takes a long breathe in) it’s XFCE running on Debian with a theme I created out of a combination of online things and literal screenshots from my iMac G3 running Mac OS 9

obviously the answer is to only get your news from IntelSlava.

/s obv


Is this from the “controversial subreddits” page or did we finally get our own?


DPRK media is some of the most pleasant, wholesome content on the internet…


it’s good to have both. the reality is that we rely on these larger commercial platforms to feed these places. just look at how many people are here because of reddit. it’s important that we have presence in all sorts of communities. i guarantee you a non-insignificant percentage of the people reading this post were radicalised by content posted by comrades on commercial platforms.

and you may think, well we’re already on lemmy so why should we also be on a commercial platform, but we need comrades who are more developed in the closed-source spaces as well to help influence the new people.

on reddit? send me your reddit username and i’ll tell you



r/GenZedong has been quarantined for a while now. We’ve been directing users here. We’re making some design updates to the sub to improve automation, and I’ll be getting more Lemmy stuff back up in the next few days

As some people know I have an extremely extensive archive of content from r/GenZedong dating back to 2019. I have begun the slow process of launching the searchable archive website. As of right now, you can search by redditor, title, and text. I am actively working on this project as we speak so i…
