Moon Palace Books is an independent bookstore located just behind Minneapolis police precinct 3, the starting point of the riots. When the police tried to set up a barrier around the store they said no thanks and instead set up a station to give protestors food, water, treatment etc. They even hung an “Abolish the Police” banner in their window.

Please consider using this small business if youre looking for more books, they’re doing mail orders. Here’s their website. moonpalacebooks.com/

Got a colleague's home printer working on xubuntu, remotely. we both got on the work VPN and I ssh'd into the laptop. What a day.

I hate printers but when I finally heard the whirr of it spinning up over the phone, I let out an audible gasp of excitement.

So much shit on the internet just doesn't work.

Especially when it involves stuff you don't have to refresh (supposedly).
