The world's largest occult library now has a public online archive.
Well, there goes some more years down the book hole...
No surprise to anyone who understands how the journalism establishment works, but still what a great headline!

REVEALED: Ransomware attack that crippled 23 Texas towns has cost $12MILLION - and investigators still don't know who is responsible
What they don't mention in the article is some towns actually paid the ransom in the hope to get their machines uncrypted again. This because of lousy backups of critical systems and insurance actually paying also. Overall it would cost less than restoring it all. Of course when crime pays, why not hit more of these towns?
Every so often, SMBC nails it.
"[analyzing employment] in all sectors paying below a specified real hourly wage rate, we conclude that the minimum wage ordinance reduced hours worked in low-wage jobs by 6-7 percent, while hourly wages in such jobs increased by 3 percent. Consequently, total payroll for such jobs decreased, implying that the ordinance lowered the amount paid to low-wage workers by on average $74 per month per job in 2016."

If you don't understand the Fediverse, it's okay.
The main thing to understand is that you have a larger audience than just Spinster users. There are 4.4 million users in the whole Fediverse.
People from other parts of the internet can follow you, and that's a good thing. It's like a co-op social network.
