Some COVID deniers began wearing masks because they are afraid of vaccinated people. I consider that a success.

Is it just me, or is it not possible to upload pictures to Mastodon using ? Whenever i try, the compose screen disappears and i get back to the toot list. It works fine from the browser, so i donʼt think itʼs on the server side.

Can someone please start making smartphones with integrated hardware keyboards again? Pretty please?

I love when K-9 Mail tells me that next time it will sync mail will be 10 days ago.

hey everyone. i'm adae and i cling onto art cuz life tries to whip me off into a black void of despair. isn't that fun?

i make all kinds of art but you'll probably be seeing a lot of paintings and drawings here.

feel free to interact if you want to talk about technique, inspiration, decolonization, and the weird metaphysical shit in art and life itself i guess (esp. if you're black!!!). that's all so let me tighten my grip before i get flung off

Programming, ~ 

TFW you refactor some code because “that will help with the new feature i have to implement” and after a bit more planning it turns out it’s totally irrelevant. (The fact that i did the refactor is good in and of itself, though…)

Google, reCAPTCHA, - 

Google advertises reCAPTCHA Enterprise as a superb measure to prevent fraud and bot spam. But when you sign up for the service you have to provide your credit card details not to autocharge you at the end of the free trial, but “to make sure you are not a robot.”

Who wrote gorillas.bas? Was it you, LizR?

Why is there no oral history of Qbasic? Is it just hard to track the team down, or has nobody really tried?

What password manager would you suggest to someone using Windows and Android? Being free (as in money) is good, but not a necessity.

Vaccination, hunpol- 

Here in Hungary, if you get your first shot you get a card within a week or two, which proves “you are protected”.

Now they made a decision that as soon as 40% of the population gets their card, we can start holding sports events, and people with cards can attend without a mask.

Because, fuck logic. And preventive measures. And people, too, because Hungarian politicians no longer need their voter base, apparently.

Pijul has a command called `credit` which does on Pijul repos exactly what `git blame` does for Git, but with a much better name.

If you want to contribute to #orgmode (#emacs) with a useful, easy (and yes, a bit boring) task, we are looking for someone to take charge of reproducing bugs 🐞 reported to the list:

RT appreciated. 🙏

She froze, staring at the eyes that had appeared behind the sink overflow.

"Oops!" It squeaked. "You weren't supposed to see me."

"W-what are you?" She stammered.

"Rude! But you're new here. Previous owner was kind to us, we look after the place. I'm unclogging your drain."

She thought about the myriad ways her life had improved since moving here; things always where she looked for them, light bulbs that never broke, cupboards that were always clean.

"I need a spell to make my boss notice me," the customer twitched, looking around the store, over the counter, anywhere but at her. "I work hard, need a raise. I'm broke. I'm told you take favours?"

"I do," She curled a wicked smile.

"I guess I have no choice. What'll it be?"

"Do my grocery shopping for me? I just haven't had time this week."

"Oh," he relaxed a little. "Oh. Is that all?"

"Pick up a parcel for me too and I'll throw in a free luck charm."

mastodon admin, question 

I can’t follow anyone from a differente instance, as my instance (installed on bare metal, not in Docker) misses a file Errno::ENOENT […] /tmp/937adac946ed080018137621cbd0951a20210424-940991-1uncuc6.jpg)

I already tried assets:precompile and even cache clear, but to no avail. I’m running 3.3.0 from the v3.3.0 tag.

Any ideas what to do?

Couple of hours messing around in LMMS, made a jaunty lil' tune. Give it a listen! It makes me happy :D

May expand on it tomorrow and make it a bit longer. :)

COVID Vaccination 

“Comirnaty”. I guess that was autocorrected, because obviously it was.

COVID Vaccination 

I got the first dose (dose? Jab? Shot? Wtatʼs the correct term here?) of Pfizer “Comernity” vaccine. After 4 hours it feels like a light tetanus vaccine, but nothing else yet.
