It seems like there's no other posts on the local timeline here, and I'm using Bytemark less and less, so I've got a new account: @Jiphex

Laterz!

apparently google has decided that i should be singlehandedly responsible for training its driverless vehicles this morning...

after almost a dozen different "identify this thing" screens, i bailed, rather than get to the point where i could actually report web store abuse to them

google image captchas: just say "fuck that, train your own damn car AIs"

i think ive used computers enough now, ive used computers for like 20 years, learned everything about how computers work, the history of computers, i got a degree in computers. now i think im done with computers, ideally i would not ever use computers again. but they fucking changed everything, literally everything that exists, they changed it all, changed it such that now you have to use computers, u dont have any choice do you

I resent that my computer, the most complex and powerful machine I'll likely ever use, is turned on by some pissant little five-cent plastic button like it's a shitty VCR from the 90's. I want a massive ornate copper knife switch, as long as my forearm, with the lower position hand-lettered "HALT" and the engaged position labelled "COMPUTE." When I go to use my computer, I want it to know I MEAN it.
