    Phases led by material production will issue forth struggles within production, over the price of labor power; phases led by circulation will see struggles in the marketplace, over the price of goods.

From Joshua Clover's Riot.Strike.Riot., which I haven't finished.

From the other side of the accelerationist horse-shoe:

More related, Robert Evans' audiobook The War on Everyone is really good and makes similar connections as this article.

Edit: Just after commenting, this interview on accelerationism appeared in my feed.

    It’s important to realise that there are many ‘accelerationisms’.

I see, no, just trying to get it to work in Windows. I also just realised Samsung sold off their printing division in 2016, so basically I've been trying to make a deprecated printer talk to Windows through a deprecated router through deprecated software...

Oh no, don't give me any more ideas!

Thank you all for your suggestions on how to live with Windows, my Microsoft-controlled existence feels a lot easier now. I managed to move my Linux virtual machine over from VMWare Fusion on my Macbook Pro and after whispering soothing words into its ear it now lives happily under Windows. For when I don't need the whole Linux desktop experience I've now got a Ubuntu terminal in my start menu, which is now located at the top of the screen. Rainmeter is really nice, I used to run GeekTools back in the day but for some silly reason stopped. I haven't dared to run those de-bloater scripts yet, but hopefully will get around to it this weekend. Still trying to find a native RSS reader that doesn't suck, but I'm leaning more and more towards going with a web solution. My only problem right now is ironically that I can't get my printer to work which is connected to the network through an Airport Express. Trying to get it to work with Bonjour only makes the installer crash. Thanks, Apple!
