Amazon: Hey look! There's a 9ft cable!

Me: But I barely need 30cm and–

Amazon: What? Did I hear that correctly? Here's a 12ft cable!

Me: ...

Trying to buy some audio cables except I don't need 3ft long cables :c

evergreen reminder that if you're censoring something, use a solid rectangle larger than the text could be

(eg don't use any kind of brush or blur or distortion filter, just black/white/pink/whatever it out)

I was going though some music albums and discovered this track in a compilation and it's a fucking banger imo youtube.com/watch?v=6N76BLb0H2

If you're about to respond to someone on Mastodon with advice or information or critique or disagreement, PLEASE read their post again to make sure that they have invited that.

If they haven't asked for input they probably don't want or need it, but if you still think they'll be interested in what you want to say, ASK before replying.

"Hey, are you asking for advice, or just venting?"

That's ALL you need to say.

I'm tagging it #netiquette (what a great word, haha) but it's universal.

I'm not a Beyoncé stan by any means (I only really listened to Lemonade 🙈) but damn her Coachella show from last week sure is something.

Watching Aggretsuko and...of course they had to do a meta/4th wall breaking joke 😅

I have a feeling there’s going to be a lot of questions. Some of you wont even know what I’m back from/for?

I’m back as Project Manager for #Mastodon.

I’m back from being sick, too sick to function. I ended up getting a month and a half of sick-leave, but it took me a while to actually get there. And that, together with some other stuff, has brought me back, on top of the world (that's how I feel)

Posting this again because Jake is brilliant (and it is relevant to something I'm trying to do)

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.

A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."

People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.

Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.

At least here on Mastodon we do not care because we make our own stars replacements, and that is beautiful in a way.

It's been 3 years and people still argue about stars vs hearts on Twitter and I just can't.
