    @literary I’m hoping that we can just evacuate you to a place that actually looks after its citizens. :-/ @jeremycherfas

      @jeremycherfas Because by that point, there’ll be no value in labour any more, and there’ll be no coming back. For all our sakes, I hope they can see this. @literary

        @jeremycherfas In fifty years or so, when the US is a footnote in history and Europe, India, and east Asia are the dominant economies, I sincerely hope they bitterly regret their apathy on healthcare, education, and general welfare. @literary

          @literary At some point the US has to declare tertiary-education-sector-bankruptcy and move in to fix this shit up. It’s absolutely unbelievable.

            @rabryst There shouldn’t even *be* student debt. Learning should be free.
            rabryst
              All student debt should be forgiven immediately

                @literary I’m really getting this intense hamster-wheel-feeling that the US has people locked on. Always running and never moving. :(

                  @literary It’s definitely time to escape to a deserted tropical island.

                    @literary Lets just focus on getting the website online. Then I can start advertising, and you can start getting work. :) In the meantime, I’ll help you out where I can. And don’t worry, I’ll let you know if I don’t feel comfortable doing something!

                      @literary :( I’m sure we can work something out. In the meantime please don’t hesitate to ask me should you need even the slightest thing.

                        Slowly getting there. Code is still a mess though. https://files.app.net/7t9h2OeFd.png

                          @literary Fuck. :( Do you hear back from the other people soon?

                            @feorlen Oh, I didn’t know you were in Estonia! Their current government seems to really, really *get* how to operate in the new world. Very refreshing.

                              I’m also always impressed how the mastering engineer manages to make the bass sound *so* present, and so loud.

                                Some pretty impressive dancing in the Noisia video that autoplayed immediately after it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=199TISojIgw

                                  @snrkl I just watch YouTube anyway, and suffer the pain later.

                                    So Noisia is turning sugary J-Pop into dark bass music. It sounds weird.

                                      @snrkl @jodiem Ah, you’re only syncing at 4mbps. Different to me — I’m syncing at about 7mbps, but getting < 0.1mbps.
