One thing I haven't seen mentioned with Crowdstrike is that, although this isn't malicious, a company has just shown off that it has kernel level access to a bunch of critical systems around the world and is willing to just run code with that access on everyone's computers without even giving it a once-over glance.

So if you wanted to get a bunch of backdoors into things because you're a nation state cybersecurity team/hacker group/bored troublemaker who wants to see the world burn/etc they've just shown themselves to be a great firm to do so with.

What's more orange than orange? Hyperbolic orange! To see this weird color, stare at the blue-green dot for about a minute and then look at the the orange square. You'll see a dot that's even more orange.

How does it work? The complementary color of orange is blue-green, or more precisely 'cyan'. Staring at a cyan dot for a long time tires out your cone cells: it wears out their response to cyan light. When you look at something white, you then see an orange afterimage. But if you look at something orange, you see an orange color stronger than ordinarily possible.

Like Stygian blue, which I showed you yesterday, hyperbolic orange is a 'chimerical color': a color that's not possible in the usual simplified theory of color vision, which only becomes possible when some of your cones are fatigued. These were discussed here:

• Paul Churchland, Chimerical colors: some phenomenological predictions from cognitive neuroscience, Philosophical Psychology 18 (2005), 527-560.

Biden has seen that it was best for the USA if he stepped down.

Ask yourself if Trump would have done the same.

I’m not an American, but my advice to American progressives is simply this:

Now’s your chance. If you don’t help elect the first African American woman to the Presidency, you’re full of shit.

That woman is your only chance to save American democracy, so you better get behind her.

A most wonderful view! 🐾💜

There is a weirdly racist trend where people blame hypothetical minorities when systems fail because management cuts corners. We saw it with the Boeing door collapse and now with the Crowdstrike crash.

There is no mythical "DEI engineer" doing sloppy work at these companies.

It's down to leadership cutting corners to make a buck. A software update causing a crash that takes down all of your customers is due to inadequate testing. It's not because some anonymous minority wrote the code.

Your friendly reminder that “Furry Raiders,” “Burned Furs” and the like are not okay and will turn your community to crap if you don’t keep them out.

I remember having run-ins with raiders before, and them trying to teach young furs how to commit tax fraud. When I said something I got reported to admins. Then I got anonymous threats to me and presumably my hypothetical employer (except they didn't seem to know who I actually worked for).

That was 10+ years ago though and I haven't seen them around as much, but I also don't live near them either.

So apparently, Stripe closed my express account through Artistree because I had one of my commission types as NSFW. And even AFTER removing said NSFW commission type, they still would not reopen my account even though they said to do so and confirm after. I'm literally selling SFW commissions on there like EVERYONE ELSE?!! The worst part is I barely even got to use the damn thing to get paid with.

I'm not sure if I have any more options (continued in replies)

😈Starri💫 mastodon (AP)
I gave up on PayPal, Stripe hates me, and I DO NOT wanna take commissions through Discord as I'd rather not take customers from outside of Discord to friend request me to do it. It's just too much. So please, if anyone who's an NSFW artist or mature artist, PLEASE PLEASE give me some suggestions on what I can use to get paid with or other platforms friendly for NSFW art.

Digital spaces enable LGBTQ+ people to engage with their gender and sexual orientation, but it can be daunting to give up any kind of privacy online while doing so. Here's a guide to protecting your identities online, from using a VPN to obscuring faces.

Kinda want to go back to when the furry fandom was small and I knew, or had at least heard of, almost everyone in it. I feel kinda lost in it these days.


So, today is osprey hatchday, and though it was the two days before that we went to #furway, it was like getting a great gift to be with so many nice floffs. We got to meet some old friends that we have not seen in "forever", and meet some new people with all sorta odd tails.

The meet brought back memories of the "long forgotten" Eurofurence#4, and it was nice to again be at a "smallish", camplike con.

The #furry fandom has been an integral, lifesaving part of my life since I stumbled over it in '94, but life getting in the way and the fandom growing at an insane rate has made us feel a bit alienated from a lot of the new crowd.

Furway felt very inclusive and friendly, much like how things were in the early days of the fandom.

And some peeps told me some very sweet stuff that meant a lot to hear. Apparently I was not as forgotten as I thought.

Albatross also brought her costume, will post pics of her later :)

#Fursuit and I know it is not #fursuitfriday but heck, were too busy being there then :P

The problem today is that if you start out with a small meet, it'll either get lost in the seas of other small-ish meets with like 15 to 20 people, or rapidly escalate into a function with hundreds of attendees and you've essentially got a convention from 10-15 years ago on your hand. It's the sheer numbers that are doing this, and people coming from all kinds of backgrounds instead of the university/IT inclined crowd of the 1990s Internet.

Data centers and AI delivering a "golden era" for Big Oil

Big Oil is so excited by AI. Oil industry insiders believe that "a surge in demand for electricity to feed data centres and to power an artificial intelligence revolution will usher in a golden era for natural gas."
