STOP baby talking to your pets. If you do that they wont learn to speak properly

Flash movie festival, swearing 

We're having a bit of a Flash movie festival here. Last night was Flash Gordon. It's been a long time since I've seen it and it met my expectations. Tonight it's Flashdance and it hasn't aged well. The old boss chasing after the 18 year old is creepy. I'm also pretty sure they edited out the word 'cunt' from the Australian release.

The Pine Store is down until further notice due to a serious issue. Manjaro CE PinePhone preorders unfortunately must be postponed. More information will be given later.

Work 

Work just released a "performance dashboard" that we can see "realtime performance figures" and it confirms what we thought about them crying that they're too poor to give us a pay rise.

I'm pleased to announce that today I finally unpacked the suitcase I've been living out of since we moved here in March.

Work, industrial relations 

The thing that irks me the most is that we've been incredibly fucking flexible during the pandemic. We've been busier, have stuck to all the COVID measures in place, are confined to our rooms for long stays while away. The company has seen a massive increase in revenue and has reached capacity limits and to show their appreciation for employees has decided to shaft us - again.

What do you wear to bed?

Work, industrial relations 

Another day and another example of my employer purposely misinterpreting our agreement to degrade conditions. I seriously don't know how these fuckers sleep at night.

I'm not moving until 1900. I wish I'd bought my switch to work.
