DJ Sundog - from the toot-lab

the current x86 situation demonstrating at least three of the three hard problems in computer science:

naming things
cache invalidation
off-by-one errors
capitalism fucks everything up

I hear there are still companies that have nothing to do with computers at all.

for the record, we do compost a bit here at the Sundogistani Consulate, as well as grow a bit of our own food when the local beasties allow us to get some of it.

I plan to increase it this year, see if little by little I can't build a more integrated life for us.

@djsundog I was a farmer before I was an engineer. I have the feeling that I will be a farmer again before too much longer.

@djsundog We need more design "lathing and milling" specialists, fewer software "engineers".

we have a field of study and an industry juggernaut that amounts to "tool using and refining industry" and that seems pretty ludicrous?

I get closer to talking myself into farming every heckin minute, I should slow down before I start composting.

As a systems administrator it's important for me to guide other tech kids on the best way forward.

So, as The Smart Girl, I suggest:
Panic. All computers are terrible. Destroy it with a hammer and free yourself from the shackles of modern technology. Frolic in the fields and be safe!
