Pinned toot

Every single time I see the CW text "Caps" I think it's about the Washington Capitals and get super duper disappointed when it's just text that happens to be all capital letters.

Does silencing an instance and rejecting media include rejecting avis or would I have to suspend?

You're amazing and you're gonna do so well. We're all rooting for you. Do your best.

If you, like me, want the option of auto deleting old toots, 'Forget' seems to do the trick!

You can use faves to tag ones you want kept (viral ones, important conversations, etc), toggle to include or exclude media posts, choose how long you want your untagged toots left up and how many toots back it'll go before it starts doing its thing. forget.codl.fr #meta #delete

Applying for an IT position and was given a paper application, so I'm filling it out using a 1930's manual typewriter, of course.

My local timeline is so much more relaxing since I followed @scream

Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

Major kudos to anybody who can make an original pun or bon mot about the devil at this point. You're cleverer than me by far.

I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

Which one of you monsters made my kids so dang weird?

Imagine if everyone “generated” their power locally (thru renewable or other means). We wouldn’t lose quite so much in transmission costs. We’d also be a lot more self-sufficient and resilient against attacks to the power grid.

I'm a fan of Biolite Solar products. They've been so helpful when grid power's gone out and most of them are fairly portable.

After a few hours of staring at this freaking tree, I just now noticed that the clock in the camera feed is five minutes off. I'm seeing things that haven't happened yet.

Isa the cedar agrees that litter in this area is the worst, but the route 1 corridor has so many more pressing issues that nobody sees it any more.

it turns out the real heartworms were inside us all along

I have named the tree Isadore. Don't call it Dory. Isa is fine though. It likes cold rain and birds, but hates squirrels.
