Pinned post

I generally like favs on any post I make.

I interpret them as:
- "I have read it"
- "I agree"
- "I'm respecting your viewpoint"
- "I'm in support of you"

and that's also how I tend to use them on other people's posts.

meta negative 

seeing people talking to each other happily while I have to sit outside like a dog in the rain

maybe think about someone's feelings before blocking them, especially when they explicitly put in a pinned post that this is how they feel about getting blocked

I hate getting silently blocked

It will make me very anxious and sad

I will know I did something wrong, but I won't know what, so it could have been anything, including something I still do because I don't know it's wrong, and it makes me scared of being abandoned by more people

please tell me why you block me before blocking me

New project idea: tear open a spare transit card and fit the RFID contents into a toy train, like this one that Vancouver's transit agency is selling.

I'm going to be completely honest with you, I kinda want to buy old tech and be able to somehow live with it.

Like I'd get an old Nokia phone (in good shape) and use it on a daily basis. Not sure if I could do that since those are GSM iirc and I don't know what's the state on the GSM network now that everything has gone '<n>G'.

I think Orange is going to shut it down pretty soon.

reddit-type guys look at rich people and they're like "ah, they're rich because they dress nice and network." Because they don't wear sandwich boards that say "I was born with more money than you'll ever even hear about"

I just want software to *stop* 

Is your software complete? Stop adding features - only bugfixes, and don't break compatibility. It should keep working forever.

Is it still incomplete? Then you must have a plan to make it feature-complete in the near future. Reduce the scope if necessary - make a sequel later! But get a finished, stable version out first.

Either you are responsible for maintaining every version you release, or you are responsible for perfect backwards compatibility.

I just want software to *stop* 

I'm sick of updating software to meet the demands of other software updates.

I'm sick of constantly changing software to keep compatibility with other ever changing software.

I'm sick of updating _hardware_ to keep compatibility with the same software that used to work.

Stop calling it an “Adam’s apple”. It’s called a ‘larynx’ and everybody has one - just people with more testosterone and less estrogen during puberty tend to have a more visually pronounced larynx. It just perpetuates religious nonsense (Adam ate the apple causing humans to learn shame) and literal untruth (everyone has a larynx).

my current plan for my own server is to repurpose my old laptop

I'd still need a dynamic DNS or a reverse proxy

I have a few things to say about purity leftism, but I'll wait until the meta has cooled down.


this should go without saying, but
the virus is real
it is a threat
vaccines help
wearing masks helps
you should keep wearing masks and get vaccinated (again)
do your part in protecting yourself, the ones you love and society in general, especially people who are at a greater risk
regardless of what governments and local authorities say
