Great article.
 
I know we've all hit peak dress. But this is why the dress matters. This is not a frivolous discussion. #itsnotaboutthedress

"The FDA recently announced that gay and bisexual men may finally be allowed to donate blood after being banned for life since the ’80s — but only if they remain celibate for one year.

So straight guys can have safe sex with woman after woman and still donate blood. But gay and bi men who have had safe sex for an entire year — even with a monogamous partner — would still be banned. Sounds like discrimination to us."

#celibacychallenge

By the way, in Germany gay and bi men are still completely banned from donating blood. (Well, we can give blood, but if we tick the box on the questionnaire that says "I am male and had sex with a man in the time since 19something" our blood donation will be discarded.)

TIL if the "reboot" / "shutdown -r" command doesn't work anymore, you can still do a remote hard reboot on Linux with the following commands:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger

This is a hard reboot, so there will be no friendly termination of running processes, no lingering data will be written to the disk before the restart of the machine. This is a last resort procedure, when nothing else works.

And yet the UNIX command line with its funky names is far more usable than the VMS one with its carefully chosen English - like naming.

For the writers among my circles.
 
Apropos of a conversation I had earlier today, about what questions are appropriate to ask oneself while writing.
