Oh blimey, it's later than I thought. I'd better get to bed soon.

wsb shit 

I think if the whole Gamestop thing teaches us anything, it's that the practice of shorting stock is a fucking stupid market feature and should probably be outlawed.

And if you think people are just doing good things for attention? Great! Give them the attention! They'll do more good things! Give them suggestions for things they can be doing that'll get them attention! Talk to them about their stances and ideas and discuss things with them. Because the more folks associate that positive feedback with being good, the more they'll just straight up bother to be good!

If you just call them out for virtue signalling, they won't even bother to do that.

Basically, if you did something good, I want to hear about it. If you believe in something good, I want to hear about it. Armchair socialists, influencers making themselves look good by championing a cause, weird owls posting musings on the nature of virtue signalling? They're all making a contribution, no matter how sincere, no matter how small. And tiny contributions build up over time.

Being vocal about a good cause or a noble stance is better than the alternatives, which are being vocal about a bad cause or stance, or straight up nihilism.

If you do an act of charity, tell people. Sure, humility is a thing but when people see folks being charitable they follow suit. Shout your virtues to the mountain tops and hold yourself and others to a higher standard.

Just saw some crypto chud posting about 'virtue signalling' so I thought I should remind you all.

Always signal your virtues, because if nobody signals their virtues it makes it seem a lot like nobody can be bothered to even pretend to be virtuous any more, and the world becomes a darker place as a result.

Who is the least redeemable character in the Avril Lavigne song 'Sk8er Boi'?

I would go into my own take on this, but I think it would prejudice the poll.

A hard power cycle of the monitor itself sorted the issue. Guess I had better scrub the rest of my porridge off the carpet :(

Okay, connected the monitor back up to the server via HDMI and it's fine (although there's an entire screen of 'r' here, so I'm guessing at some point somebody leant on the keyboard), so that means the issue is either the displayport connection or the graphics card.

Full reboot of the PC methinks.

Bad start to the say. For some reason my computer no longer wants to connect to my DisplayPort monitor, and while I was trying to fix it I dropped my breakfast on the floor.

Urgh, I've spent the entire day so far ripping DVDs again.

I really don't need Vordus in my name. It's kind of redundant; it's right there behind the @

Maybe this is just what it's like to come out of an abusive relationship.
