This is something that an actual human said. If you want to be pissed off and/or terrified at the possibility of Cap’n Tiny Hands McOrangeface being elected and see what other equally stupid people have to say, go watch the entire video, but don’t say I didn’t warn you first.

Deric Lostutter — the Anonymous-affiliated hacker who helped expose the violent rape of an underage girl in Steubenville, Ohio — pled not guilty Wednesday to four felony counts of hacking. He now faces a federal trial and up to 16 years in prison; the rapists he exposed now walk free. Lostutter’s one week trial will begin on November 8th.
Jesus fucking Christ 😡
You can find out more about what’s changed and more about the theme on the Retro theme project page.
Kubrick has always been one of my favorite themes, and back when this site was soupnazi.org, it ran a modified version of it for a long time. So, when I sat down a month ago or so to build a new theme, I decided to recreate it and bring it up-to-date. This site is running a child theme of Retro right now.
You can learn more about Retro, see a demo, follow development, and download the theme over at the Retro theme page.

Sometimes, change is unexpected. More often than not, change sneaks in until it feels grand and inevitable. Gradually, and then suddenly. iOS users have lived through numerous tides of such changes over the past three years.
As always, Federico Viticci at MacStories hits it out of the park with his yearly iOS review.
I just switched to a new theme that I built. I wrote a long post earlier this week covering my thought process behind it and some features that I added, and then… I lost the post.
It wasn’t WordPress’ fault, I wrote it in markdown in Textastic on my iPad and thought I saved it to iCloud. It turns out I didn’t–I saved it locally. And of course that was when the iOS 10 GM was released and when I did a clean install, I lost the post.
Anyway, I’ll write up another post about the new theme in the near future. I’ll also be releasing the theme for download, so keep an eye out for the post. Now would be a good time to subscribe to my posts :)
As always, please let me know if you run into any problems.

Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.
If you think things are bad now, it’s only gonna get worse if this tiny-handed, orange-faced asshat wins the election.

From The Atlantic:
The allegations may seem at odds with the reputation of this city known for its progressivism. But many African Americans in Portland say they’re not surprised when they hear about racial incidents in this city and state. That’s because racism has been entrenched in Oregon, maybe more than any state in the north, for nearly two centuries. When the state entered the union in 1859, for example, Oregon explicitly forbade black people from living in its borders, the only state to do so. In more recent times, the city repeatedly undertook “urban renewal” projects (such as the construction of Legacy Emanuel Hospital) that decimated the small black community that existed here. And racism persists today. A 2011 audit found that landlords and leasing agents here discriminated against black and Latino renters 64 percent of the time, citing them higher rents or deposits and adding on additional fees. In area schools, African American students are suspended and expelled at a rate four to five times higher than that of their white peers.
This is a really, really good article.
