Chairleg of Truth

Yeah, Sure Livejournal. Suuuuure.

Dear LJ,

It's weird, you sending me e-mail with bad English. It's weird, you telling me to change my password simply because it hasn't been changed in a while. It's also against the NIST-recommended best practices for password security. So how about a compromise? I won't change my password and, in exchange, I'll still post on your platform. Albeit from another, more trustworthy platform. Seems fair to me, since you sold out to a foreign country that has been hacking our elections.

No love,
Filthy and suspicious Assistant.

I Thought I Would Have More Time

Dave, the rock of my life for the past 13 years, died unexpectedly on Tuesday. We weren't close in age, so I figured I'd have to do this eventually, but I genuinely thought we'd have more time. I have good support - my in-laws are amazing people - but I'm still adrift. I feel empty, hollowed out, like he took a big piece of me with him. Right now, I feel like I'll never heal. Maybe that's right, maybe not, and I honestly don't care. I'm trying to leave the future to sort itself out while I deal with the present, but I know that's not sustainable. I have a lot to sort out though, so it's not a bad plan for the immediate future. I'm also dealing with how hard it is to get a green burial in the Bay Area. This should not be nearly as difficult as it is. Mild infuriation is easier to handle today. Maybe this is a good thing, if I still need to go in to the office.

The USA is Helping ISIL. We need to cut that out.

ISIL is Weak

Waleed talks about how we can stop ISIL #TheProjectTVWritten by Waleed and Tom Whitty (@twhittyer)

Waleed is exactly right. Hate does nothing but fuel the division between Muslims and non-Muslims and radicalizes both sides. Or in the immortal words of Yoda: “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

Also still super disappointed with US state govs who think they have the authority to override fed law. You don't, and you're just wearing your bigotry on your sleeves.
