There used to be an old ad(?), from the US or UK, where a women asked her husband to do something. However, negative circumstance always intervened, like the fuse went out so the guy had to go to a store, but the car broke down, etc. At the end the wife enters (i think when the guy was repairung the carr asking if he has done what she asked, and the guy looked up saying “what do you think i’m doing?”

I’d be grateful for a link for this.

My daughter (4yo) just created two tubes, a red and a blue one. The red one is supposed to provide healing water, the blue one gives water that “makes you powerful”.

I’m pretty sure she hasn’t played computer games where red and blue things (although usually small bottles) do exactly the same…

Just standard kitchen accessories.

I’ve read a lot of stories about career changing people who leave their job, of which they even have a certificate, but until recently i believed it was at least partly made up.

Then, two days ago, we have hired an ex-marketing girl who is the most enthusiastic front end developer i ever saw.

people, is there a comparison somewhere, biased or not, between FlyMake and FlyCheck?

My new weapon. And my motto for it: make biscuits, not war!

-CoCs are good
-LGBTQA folks are awesome and deserve rights just like any of us
-Women and minorities have been screwed in tech and we need to fix it
-Nazis deserve punching
-As a white dude, if you/I get called out on something we did, the best response is to apologize and stop talking
-Meritocracies aren't

If you take issue with any of these statements, this place is not for you.

@minego just found this in a local toy store.

’s “swipe up opened image/video to dismiss it” feature is so convenient it really bugs me i can’t use it in other apps.

White boys on dates late at night, glowing because they're so pale, they attract the swarm.
By the thousands moths fly out of their ancient mothing grounds and all at once, the boy is gone. In his place the moths have left you a gift. It is a small lamp.
It is beautiful.

i'm gonna say it AGAIN

if your game only allows for a male playable character, but ESPECIALLY a cis white male

it's bad. it's a bad game. you've made nothing original. it's boring. bad bad bad

I've settled on a name for my #ActivityPub #WordPress plugin - #Pterotype! It's an early precursor to the typewriter, which seemed appropriate for WordPress.

Honestly though, the main reason I chose it is now it can have a cute Pterodactyl logo. That will go nicely with Mastodon's prehistoric theme!

Now I just need to find someone who can draw a cute pterodactyl...

Dear Fedi,
do you have a cool tool to create step by step tutorials inside a website, with little pop-up showing where to click and what to do?

Boosts appreciated
