Saw my first quantum computer during the tour of Calcul Québec at ÉTS. It's not quite operational, but pretty cool nonetheless.

This AP tweet is an instant candidate for the Museum of American Fascism. Carve it in stone and put it over the entrance. It should be an enduring source of burning shame and embarrassment for the entire organization, as well as a warning to other media.

Everyone talks about the Tooth Fairy, but nobody ever mentions her elderly aunt, the Root Canal Banshee.

LOL, I think my fake "Flooring Inspector" title on LinkedIn is starting to confuse bots.

Except it's Guybrush, not Gregory, you fools.

I know, I know, I'm trolling, but if call yourself a "Senior IT Security Engineer," you really shouldn't be emailing helpdesk with such questions.

My attention has been drawn to this packaging design from HP, which presumably someone approved.

My umpire wrist guard had too much velcro, so I got a patch to go on it.

Happy Pride!

Tired: This meeting could have been an email.

Wired: This startup could have been a spreadsheet.

We investigated performance degradation due to excessive crawling of Codeberg.

We often trace back such things to company websites that proudly list their key investors - but don't actually explain what they are doing (or why they need to crawl Codeberg more excessively than the crawlers of the major search engines combined).

It's probably not a use case we believe in anyway, so we blocked several large IP ranges today.

Hello people of the US, Germany here.

We have a bit of experience with a convicted felon and radical right-wing extremist becoming leader of our country.

Our advice: Don't do it.

Yo, ClaudeBot. You see that f'n robots.txt? Yes, it's for you.

Oh, you don't care? Well, then, choke on a bucket of 403s.

Amused by the fact that convicted felons can't vote, but can apparently be elected into a position where they can appoint Supreme Court judges.
