  1. The stats gained through the census help the country improve and understand itself. The names are dumb.


    Fill it out without the name, chances are you won't be fined. They have the power but don't like to use it unless you're being a dick to them/the census agents.

    You'll likely need a paper form though.

  2. My favourite part about the leaks is how Assange has fucking lost it and included heaps of people's NAMES, EMAIL ADDRESSES, PHONE NUMBERS, SSNS AND CREDIT CARD DETAILS in them because blanking those would be censorship or something fucking stupid.


    Also this antisemitic fuckboi bullshit. https://archive.is/5g8LF because jews run the world right?


    oh and for funsies too. 

    They couldn't identify an OBVIOUS phishing scam.


    Fuck Wikileaks (and Trump & Pence just to stay on topic)

  3. Today is a sad day. The large acacia out the front was destroyed in the storm overnight largely due to falling gum branches :(

    It was beautiful and in full flower but when we awoke this morning it was entirely uprooted and missing near half of it's branches.

    We managed to clean it up a bit and place it back down into the soil but I'm unsure if it will survive. You can see the pile of dropped branches and such behind it on the right.




    I'm going to have to plant some more acacia in it's memory. A dozen acuminata maybe?


    As a small update as well, things are progressing pretty slowly around here due to winter. I've made some shelves in the shed which I'm now propagating all my chillies on/in. They're probably a bit happier to be in there rather than an old veggie esky with a single CFL globe :)  I'll get some pictures of this soon.


    I think I may be going pretty overboard with this chilli thing too... Maybe that's a good thing? I should have a good amount of seed (and probably pods) to share around sometime next year :)

  4. Sounds like they didn't really know how to cover their tracks... part of the evidence of how they were caught is their transactions on iTunes. There's some irony in that I think.


    Shitty news though something will take it's place.

  5. Mr Robot. Strong anti-establishment themes, computery but you don't NEED to be a nerd to get it. A++. Season two is airing right now in the US.

    Stranger Things. Only two episodes into this but it seems great so far. Love the style it's done in and it's kid actors who don't make me cringe which is a bonus.

    Tiny House Nation/Tiny House Hunting/Tiny House World/Tiny house anything... I have a thing for tiny houses right now. can you tell? I love the concept of living with only what you need. No space for junk to accumulate. I still need that outdoor space though...

  6. I was for awhile but I found it ultimately made me just as phlegmy/wheezy/hard of breath as the analogues and that was really the main reason I wanted to quit smoking (which I've done, but without vapes :p)


    Can you get dry herb attachments that fit onto the standard ego/510 thread? THAT I may be interested in assuming it can hit temps well.


    iLeaf 30w & kanger subtank fwiw

  7. I took a bunch of photos of my cupboard babies. Moved them inside because I was germing them outside (at this time of year) like an idiot.










    Last two in the takeaway containers are WAY too wet, I know. I'm taking their lids off every other day and letting them dry out a bit.


    Next up... building an indoor grow cabinet for the cold months and for starting seedlings super healthily all year round.

    I may the mistake of joining a hot pepper forum and now I'm no longer satisfied with how my chillies are doing... I need lights! I want those tight nodes, big glossy leaves and short (but fat stems) stature. I think they be my true calling.

  8. and one more for good measure.




    This is from the "hacker".


    1. ===== BEGIN SIGNED MESSAGE =====
    2. To the DAO and the Ethereum community,
    4. I have carefully examined the code of The DAO and decided to participate after finding the feature where splitting is rewarded with additional ether. I have made use of this feature and have rightfully claimed 3,641,694 ether, and would like to thank the DAO for this reward. It is my understanding that the DAO code contains this feature to promote decentralization and encourage the creation of "child DAOs".
    6. I am disappointed by those who are characterizing the use of this intentional feature as "theft". I am making use of this explicitly coded feature as per the smart contract terms and my law firm has advised me that my action is fully compliant with United States criminal and tort law. For reference please review the terms of the DAO:
    8. "The terms of The DAO Creation are set forth in the smart contract code existing on the Ethereum blockchain at 0xbb9bc244d798123fde783fcc1c72d3bb8c189413. Nothing in this explanation of terms or in any other document or communication may modify or add any additional obligations or guarantees beyond those set forth in The DAO’s code. Any and all explanatory terms or descriptions are merely offered for educational purposes and do not supercede or modify the express terms of The DAO’s code set forth on the blockchain; to the extent you believe there to be any conflict or discrepancy between the descriptions offered here and the functionality of The DAO’s code at 0xbb9bc244d798123fde783fcc1c72d3bb8c189413, The DAO’s code controls and sets forth all terms of The DAO Creation."
    10. A soft or hard fork would amount to seizure of my legitimate and rightful ether, claimed legally through the terms of a smart contract. Such fork would permanently and irrevocably ruin all confidence in not only Ethereum but also the in the field of smart contracts and blockchain technology. Many large Ethereum holders will dump their ether, and developers, researchers, and companies will leave Ethereum. Make no mistake: any fork, soft or hard, will further damage Ethereum and destroy its reputation and appeal.
    12. I reserve all rights to take any and all legal action against any accomplices of illegitimate theft, freezing, or seizure of my legitimate ether, and am actively working with my law firm. Those accomplices will be receiving Cease and Desist notices in the mail shortly.
    14. I hope this event becomes an valuable learning experience for the Ethereum community and wish you all the best of luck.
    16. Yours truly,
    17. "The Attacker"

    After a weather induced hiatus, the tunnel is coming along again. Cloth is cable-tied up and will hold until tomorrow when we can get to sewing it.


    We started sewing under the veranda but quickly realised that was going to take a LONG time and lining up things was hard work. So after a "Hey... dumb question" moment, we realised we could put the sides up and then pull the top over, fix it in place with cable ties and then sew it up later.


    Down the back you'll see a little wooden frame too which was previously going to be a little sleeping house for the mini goats we're planning on getting but we decided a shipping container would probably work better for them so  it's going to be repurposed as a hot house attached to the tunnel. This is where seedlings can stay nicely warm and humid until they can go play with the big kids. It will obviously wrapped in poly :)


    and finally yes, it is a bit wonky... the right stands up a little straighter than the left but our imperfections are what makes us beautiful :)

    Now we wait. Shout out to @MoonUnitBotanica and @olive. About 1.5k seeds throughout there and about the same left in my pocket.


    I got sick of forgetting where stuff came from so from now on all my plants are given numerical IDs which correlate to their entry in my garden database. So from now on if I ever sell/giveaway/trade seed/plants/cuttings/fruit, they'll include my ID (along with all the /useful/ info of course :P) so you/I can keep track of wtf I did to it/it's heritage/etc.

  11. I'm over BTC to be honest. I still love the blockchain as technology but the experiment, in my eyes, has failed. The community is (largely) a bunch of backstabbing, bitter, ungrounded, assholes. Additionally, the decentralised nature is pointless when development is still centralised 1 and core devs can be so easily fooled 2.


    The nerd inside me likes Etherium but I don't think it will take off unfortunately.


    Mobile wallets are OK but make sure you use a strong passphrase and keep it locked at all times. Keep backups too. Lost phone = lost coins.

    Avoid web wallets.

    Prefer desktop wallets.


    Price speculating on BTC is 99.5%  speculation and bullshit. Haven't followed to can't really comment (read: relay other people's speculation) on it this time.


    The huge debacle recently about block size increases. Caused a huge divide with threats to fork.

    The Craig Wright is 'Satoshi' thing. Pretty much outed as a fraudster/liar but Gavin (core dev) swore black and blue it was legit.
