In case anyone’s wondering where the link posts have gone, you can blame the FBI. No, seriously. During a raid on a data centre, some incompetent took a server they had no legal right to take (an action for which they will obviously bear no public scrutiny, because that wouldn’t be fair), and the knock-on effect is that it’s killed my link posting until one of the services that runs it if firing on all cylinders again.
I have been trying to formulate a response to this that isn’t just spitting with inarticulate rage at anyone who lives in the US, and is therefore complicit in the criminal activities of their law enforcement agencies, but of course, that’s the anger of powerlessness talking.
My next step is obviously some kind of terrorist action.
