Fahrenheit? No, Fahrenheit was the scientist, you mean Fahrenheit's /monster/.

This 'I am CEO. I am ÜBEREMENSCH' stuff you see among stupid people who happen to be libertarians is bad enough, but trying to pull it off when you're a one-man outfit writing PHP is just pathetic.

someone on twitter: it’s easy to ignore your own flaws and nitpick others—
me: tell me how
them: excuse me?
me (trembling): how do you ignore your own flaws. tell me the secret

Reminder that pundits have been saying that Mastodon is failing since at least 2017, and we keep proving them wrong every time the platform grows, and new federation platforms emerge

I hate when people use '404ed' to mean any error involving a web browser and/or fetching a resource.

Not (entirely) because of a deep-seated desire to be fussy, but mostly because when they ask me for help, it ends up wasting my time trying to debug a completely different problem than they're having.

Someone who thinks they're cis might be trans. I thought I was cis once. There aren't many (perhaps no) trans people who didn't think they weren't cis at one point.

This is part of why I think giving accurate information on trans issues is so important, and why engaging cis people on it is so vital.

You don't have to be responsible for this engagement. But don't shit on people who *are* doing it.

What I don't get about Slack or any other 'chat as a service' system is why tech companies would willingly backdoor themselves with a surveillance system to harvest all their most private in-house discussions.

All those chat logs must be worth quite a bit to the right buyers.

@krozruch I know not everyone agrees with me on the issue of LastPass or OnePass. Let me also be clear on something...

Even the proprietary solutions are better than password re-use. Significantly. But Mozilla makes Free Software. If they don't believe in their own stuff, fix it. And if they do, promote it. Don't promote proprietary stuff, or at least present Free alternatives.

The Mozilla Foundation has a podcast called IRL. In a recent episode they talked about passwords and basically ended the episode advocating the use of proprietary password managers, specifically LastPass and OnePass.

LastPass has had number of security breaches over the years. Mozilla is a non-profit that creates Free Software, and even has a password manager built into Firefox that is FLOSS, and even self-hostable. Why are they advocating people use inferior stuff to their own?

I don't believe in your sci-fi future unless people are making cultural in-jokes and quoting entertainments from their near past that I've never heard of.

LIZARD MAN: We have to fix our quadlateral posi-fingers or this whole thing will blow. "And I'm not just counting salamanders in null-G!"

(Everyone laughs except me, the audience member, trapped in the backwater of the past where I don't have access to future cultural touchpoints)

ME: So realistic!

frankly katherine the statement that you brought "free cupcakes" is misleading at best and malicious at worst. if i cannot readily access the recipe for your cupcakes then what you have is a plate of *gratis*, but not *libre*, cupcakes. would you call iOS "free software" because it comes with your phone? no, katherine. because you're better than that.
