Pinned toot

How come none of the Yom Kippur/ Talk Like A Pirate Day takes I’ve seen so far are about Jonah, which is traditionally read on Yom Kippur and involves rejecting authority, sailing the high seas, and walking the plank.

Oooo, VSCode without all of Microsoft's tacked on bullshit?

I love internet.

i just read about the upcoming history channel tv series, PROJECT BLUE BOOK, based on the us air force's UFO investigations in the 50s & 60s

i was hoping this was a reboot/remake of the 70s series PROJECT UFO, which i loved as a kid (and which sometimes scared the crap out of me), but it seems unrelated, besides the inspiration, alas

Bert and Ernie are living in 2018, but 70s and 80s Canadian kids were already there with Mr. Dressup and his non-binary puppet friend Casey.

Ain’t no party like a tautology party cause a tautology party is a party

I'm seeing so many people preparing for inktober, making sketches, binding sketchbooks, discussing promt lists and getting ready to INK BIG.
But, I also hear many people being intimidated by that, being worried they won't come up with stuff for the promts and dropped out last years bc of that.
So please, remember: The core concept is, that you build an inking routine. To make it LESS intimidating.
So even if you go through inktober inking a stick figure each day -
You've done a great job! ♥️

so i learned that their calibration tool isn’t software: it’s a big honking machine or something, so they only have it calibrated to the latest version of iOS. but since iOS 12 was just released *today*, they don’t consider it the latest just yet? so if i’d waited a day or 2 i wouldn’t have had to replace my phone. oh well

i forgot about the worst part about getting a new device: having to reset all of my 2FA codes :( luckily i actually save backup/reset codes (i hope i got them all)


so i went to the apple store to replace the broken screen on my iphone

turns out their screen replacement calibration software doesn't run properly on , so they had to replace the entire phone!

you'd think they would have been ready for their own OS updates? :thaenkin:

i want a girl with a short sword and a loooooooooooongsword

Hey, a trans charity near me has some kick ass merchandise, I'd appreciate it if you guys would take a look and I'm pretty sure you guys appreciate cool pins and dice. Shipping to the US should be pretty cheap too

someone (or -thing) keeps trying to reset my roblox password (i’m not an active user: i signed up to check it out when my niece was obsessed with it)

i hear there’s money to be made on roblox so i guess i’m not surprised, although it is annoying
