So, has Instagram removed your ability of scrolling through any old posts from your friends once the feed refreshes? That’ll get me off the site way sooner than I planned

We used 95% of our cellular data this month so it’s airplane mode for the rest of the week until the cycle renews. That’ll be interesting.

It’s been quite relaxing out here in Bryson City. Glad to be heading home, though

Made a calendar in @ProtonCalendar for the list of "official" holidays of The Satanic Temple. This may benefit you as well:

Waiting for the day for the world to wake up and stop focusing on capitalist profits over responsible utilization of resources.

Worst part of loading up my personal computer for anything is remembering all of the projects I've been neglecting on it. 😩​

Don't get me wrong, I want to fix things, and make things better, but so much is completely out of my control. Even writing to my congressional representation is a futile endeavor as they're so polarized. I still do it, but it's exhausting.

I feel perpetually like the dog in the "This is Fine" meme... World burning around me, and I'm just trying to do what I can to ignore it and stay afloat to the best of my ability.

Wild. Bees are now classified as a fish in California in order to qualify for protections under the Endangered Species Act there...

Yes.

And even worse when Monday is a public holiday so you don't get back until Tuesday. 😆

git pro tip 

`git log -S some_variable_name` returns all commits where `some_variable_name` is in the diff (either removed, added, or modified)

super useful for tracking down regressions where you know the variable that's the culprit

First, to people complaining that people don't know what AR-15 stands for, lots of people know. In case anyone doesn't, it's ArmaLite Rifle, named for the maker and it's based on a military weapon. Assault rifle or not? Who cares?

Assault rifle is a common term and we all know what it refers to. Who gives a chicken fried fuck about the names? That’s nonsense to deflect and obstruct.

However, I promise to make sure everyone I know uses it correctly. Will everyone else promise to learn that I have the right to not have my kid shot with one?

Because we sure need a better system than this. Republicans now want to "harden schools?" Another useless fake they'll never do anything about, anyway.

Harden how hard it is to get a gun. That will help students. And teachers. And grocery store shoppers. Pass universal background checks.

We ordered the same gun used in Uvalde. Here’s how easy it was:

Strange New Worlds is back to what made great to begin with and I’m in love again.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Could Florida summers officially be here? Seeing these rolling thunderstorms in the distance, especially at night, are always incredible. Mother Nature is so destructive and yet peaceful.

Fix the economy! But don't use any money, or regulations, or upset any of the systems currently in place.

... why haven't you fixed the economy yet?

After my 1 year old has been fighting a fever for 3 days, my wife and I have started fighting something too. Negative COVID tests (so far). Started wearing masks in the house to hopefully keep the 3 year old from catching this too.

Dear open source users,

If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.
