Yes, it will be tremendously expensive to apply heavy trade sactions to China. But it was also tremendously expensive to liberate the slaves from the US south. Money never excuses moral failure.

thinking about going back in time and telling child Maddie that in the future we find out that dinosaurs used to have feathers. i would also probably mention to her that she's a girl but i mostly want to see how she reacts to the feathers thing

@sir their robots.txt parser: github.com/google/robotstxt Of course that just shows that they can do it on products that have to be good and stable as opposed to ones that are user facing.

Weird how most "crimes against humanity" are crimes with a finite number of victims, but crimes like fossil fuel profiteering or the destruction of the rainforest, where humanity itself is the victim, aren't actually crimes at all

@sir do you see the blog as something that there is only one of per instance of sr.ht (or only on sourcehut.org) or are you envisioning a blogs.sr.ht where anyone can set up a blog?

@sir that’s comparing apples to oranges. Mastodon and HN are used for chatting, while email is used for documentation, announcements, code review, chatting, and more.

@sir I’m a software developer who uses a Mac as their daily driver and has experience using Linux on the command line. I want to get a new laptop, but Macbooks are too expensive and Windows is gross, so I’m thinking of getting a laptop and installing Linux on it. Are there any guides you can recommend for getting started with GUI Linux/what distro would you recommend?
