@steviemcfly Geez. Why even bother?
Anyone thinking of getting one of those, there's not much chance they're on the "nice" list.
A lot of people think "Decentralized" has the same meaning as "Evenly Distributed, or else it's a failure."
I'm sure people who think that are nice people, but they're not as smart as they think they are.
Well, Yeah! He already knows where THAT is is!

@garfiald Ok, I'll believe you, but _only_ because you have a four digit follower count and are therefore a very trustworthy person.

DR CRUSHER : Another broken ankle? What was it this time?
ME : Uh, I didn't want to wait for the turbolift just to go down a single deck, so I opened a maintenance hatch and jumped down.
DR CRUSHER : beep beep boop. Ok your ankle is fixed.
ME: Hey, my post is just one deck down from sickbay, right? Where's the nearest jerfferies tube access?

Even little things. Imagine all the dumb things you might do as a teenager when you didn't really think about your health. Things like jumping down flights of stairs to save two seconds, or using a ladder balanced on a stack of books.
If I knew I could just be beamed to sickbay and fixed up in minutes, I'd still do all that stuff and worse.
@garfiald Oh some people like watching numbers go up.
Don't shame people for their harmless fun.
Is it possible to transfer an account, including followers and followees, to a new server?
When I signed up, that's what scared me away from small servers.
I figured larger, more proven servers were more likely to stick around.
If you told people they could transfer and not lose anything, I think they'd be more brave about picking smaller, more niche servers.
All these clever math solutions would need to be monitored by a human ANYWAY, to guard against unforeseen problems, so there's not really much disadvantage in saving a step and just letting the human do it manually.
@Austin_Dern I can't spot a year on that comic, but the earlier Peanuts was meaner then it's later years.

@Taweret I always wonder if the Enterprise's technologies are commonly available to civilians.
Whenever we see civilians on Earth, we see them engaging in quaint, old fashioned activities, except with really good transit.
Are ordinary houses and apartments in the 24th century "self-cleaning"?
I'm a virtual reality and game programmer, who's excited about games, technology, online comics. Currently I work on creating interactive haptic systems.
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
