I've had a few automated follows, which I'm not a fan of, so I'm locking my account.
Feel free to submit a follow request, though! Odds are, I'll probably accept it.

@Zest Thanks for hosting the stream! You were really adorable with how gently you handled those ribbon cables!

mh, social anxiety, snark, long - 

I would like to present an algorithm for making effective use of social media.
This algorithm works best when executed on "brain" platforms with the "social anxiety" extension.

The steps are as follows:
1: Locate a post that would benefit from your input.
2: Write down your initial thought.
3: Completely rewrite the reply several times to make sure the phrasing is correct and unambiguous.
4: Read the reply several times and edit out any typos and grammatical errors.
5: At this point the reply will have been in short-term memory long enough for the platform to consider it as "useful" and commit it to long-term memory. [1]
6: Consider that the reply might be interpreted as offensive. [2]
7: Delete the reply.

Further research is needed to determine the algorithm's upper bound on complexity, as the volatile nature of the platform tends to result in unpredictable execution of "go to 2."

[1] Please consult your platform's manual if it contains the "self-loathing" extension, particularly the section titled "space-efficient sequential database of reasons why you suck."
[2] This step may not always execute successfully. Fallbacks include, but are not limited to: "this took me too long," "there's still a mistake that I can't find."

"You're allowed to fix it" really shouldn't have to be a selling point in favor of your tech product

OMG, am dying!!!

Someone used the bug GitHub refused to fix, that allows you to add a commit to a repo you don’t control... to upload YouTube-dl to the DMCA request repo on GitHub.

people online say "computer bad" but i say "look at me, holly, a pathetic creature of meat and bone. how could i challenge a perfect, immortal machine?"

@lain github stores "forks" as branches of the main repo, someone likely submitted a PR that replaces the whole repo with youtube-dl's commits history

Microsoft Office 365 online has probably taken years off my life because of all the stress it's caused me :/

You can't ever go wrong with more googly eyes on random bits of technology.

Have I ever talked about how awesome #OsmAnd is?

Here we have a map app that draws maps from vector data in real time, and has quality routing and many other features.

It still runs on an Android 4.4 device with 512 MB of memory, and can calculate routes for several 100 km on a fairly complex road network without crashing.

It is possible, people!
