To the guys who make/market these things:

I'm just curious, is there a convention? Lot's of competition? Innovation discussions like "the latest in pizza box sag technology"? How do you make a thriving business out of something you know everyone not only, can't recycle, but simply doesn't care about?! It's like one of those things that everyone accepts is part of the price of delivered pizza, but no one acknowledges... So I'm genuinely curious about the business model as a whole! It pure genius in terms of a business that falls completely under the radar, but I'm also hard pressed to get a pie that doesn't have one, even from places who's business isn't actually pizza and instead just a side menu item... Whoever that guy who came up with it is, has to own an island, or there is no justice in the world...

Default DNS over HTTPS (#DoH) in #Firefox is admirable, tunneling DNS through #Cloudflare is dangerous, as @ungleich sharply summarizes: "whether you trust Cloudflare or not, you'll end up directly supporting centralisation by using DoH in Firefox. Centralisation makes us depend on one big player, which results in less choices and fewer innovation. Centralisation affects everybody by creating a dangerous power and resource imbalance between the center and the rest" -

Wow the spam bots from are fairly... well actually typical, but I'm amused they are as bad here...

In the spirit of HotTopic based industrial finds from forever ago...

OK someone tell me why headers and avatars in masto takes up 6 gig after deleting stuff that is positively ancient... There must be a way to cull that a little bit, it seems like madness... (and non tootctl media doesn't sort this).

Ever just have one of those days where stuff just doesn't go your way drastically and unflinchingly? That's whats up...

@fireglow @Are0h @alexa @denikombucha @peptostate @ppng @seven @terryenglish sadly i've known of him too long for it to still be funny. he would still call me a bigot i'm sure if he could see this (i believe he's blocked my instance). i love black people though. to me, honestly, the african ingredient is certainly one of best the ones in our "melting pot" of america. but i can certainly see the frustration. i just wish people, in general, were more willing to look for friends/allies than to focus on their disagreements. i suppose that it is better that he blocked me

Hi, everyone! :blobartist:

We're looking for audio-visual artists who want their stuff displayed online.

Anything from animation shorts to music videos as long as it's yours and/or CC.

The idea is to build up a sort of community 'TV' (stream), for fedi peeps to watch and have fun! :blobaww:

Asking for help 

seven :WeAreNameless: boosted

Hey, everyone! :blobbandage:

I'm going through a lot right now and I've been postponing this post with hope that things would settle positively, but I need to ask for financial help, here.

I don't have the spoons to explain the situation fully.

So... In short, for at least the next 3 months getting groceries and paying for meds and physio will be a struggle, as someone in the family is getting sacked while in debt.

It's fucked up and my anxiety levels are skyrocketing, which isn't good also because stress is one of my MS triggers. :_catsad:

If you can help in any way, our PayPal is:

Boosts welcome & thank you! :blobblush:

@grainloom Among general-purpose programming languages, Python is actually one of my favorites.

Yes, it's slow and sluggish. It is interpreted. It is garbage-collected. It's everything one would hate about highly-abstracted languages.

But it has a strong idea behind it. The idea of a programming language being a practical tool for humans. The result is an absurdly ergonomic language, everything in it serves this purpose. You don't have to litter your head too much with technical bullshit, you just tell the computer generally what to do and when, and the language takes care of the rest.

And in my opinion this justifies it being high-level. After all, that's what high-level is for.

P.S. If you are interested in using some of the unused/abandoned tv signal spectrum in the US give me a DM... ;)

I'm not really sure what they actually want me to put here, nor do I care. It's a random mastodon instance, that will likely change to whatever tech is decided to be the most useful at the time...
