Pinned toot

A mostly unmolested (maybe on the phone, I forget) panorama of the same sunset. Was really cool to look around and see the colour difference between the sunset side and the incoming night side; the image doesn't do it justice.

Pinned toot

I took this on my bike ride earlier tonight.

Sunset viewed from the landing beside the Wind Wand, on the Coastal Walkway in New Plymouth, New Zealand.

An X Windows backlight/volume indicator overlay but instead of progress bars it's using the face from the original Doom games.

Just had my first encounter with an actual error code 451 in the wild. Apparently the NH-based Union Leader newspaper / media site decided it was easier to block all of Europe than to become #GDPR-compliant! (I am traveling in EU & wanted to read a story shared by a NH friend. I guess I will have to wait until back in USA)

Wife had an exciting afternoon.

Had to take one of the demi-humans to the doctor after they fell off a playground at school.

Broken wrist. ๐Ÿ˜”

Techy rant Show more

this is no cause for alarm, i guarantee you twitter and facebook alone do MUCH more nefarious things with the DMs they regularly read and comb through, and i can at least speak for myself that ive never had the implication to go pawing through my instance's database to read PMs because like, ugh why thats gross lmao.

but, just never expect privacy on a platform that doesn't provide it, is all. the point of fedi is to publish, not to keep secrets.

anyway dipshit reply guys notwithstanding, periodic reminder and psa that

1 - fedi is just a bunch of postgres databases with a friendly clown interface on them and anything you post is copied to hundreds of them! this is cool and fine and "federation" but it is not private at ALL! there is zero encryption!

2 - as such yes any DM can be found in said database if an instance admin on one of the instances involved in the DM goes pawing through their database. DMs can also be reported by a participant. this is true of any service, incl twitter, facebook, etc because for those messages to be sent they need to... exist, in a database.

Found some old screenshots directory from 2010. March 25 even, exactly 9 years ago :)

Iโ€™ve been seeing a lot of commie stans on Mastodon...yโ€™all know communism killed millions of people right? Or did I miss something in my 5 or so years majoring in political science and international relations at university or in my 20+ years of living under a commie ANC government where SAโ€™s vital infrastructure such as the national power utility is about to collapse and a majority of the population continue to live in abject poverty. Did I? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’ญ

It's.... disappointingly common in some groups I'm in to see someone post cute/hot selfies, be asked "Where'd you get that outfit it's adorable" and have the OP reply "Oh I don't share where I get my stuff, I don't want anyone else to have it"

Like this is normal and okay to claim ownership of an article of clothing and no one else can wear it?

"In essence, you can't really function on the modern internet without running into Google in some way, which makes the de-Googlers' mission all the more difficult."

Wow #Amaroq sure is ugly but it works...๐Ÿ™‚...will check out #Toot! later, would love to try that app at least before deciding on what to settle on.

But for heavens sake, my fellow iOS users, donโ€™t download #Mast ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ!

We are adopting some cats from my workmate who's leaving and can't take them when he moves... it's their first night here, and I've just realised that what we're trying to do is basically induce stockholm syndrome ๐Ÿคฏ

I've tooted while 3D printing this lampshade last week - and as promised, here is a photo of it in "action".

Still a bit of stringing to clean up, but if I may say so myself, this looks rather stunning!

ESP8266-powered with an HTTP API to remotely control it and make it light up to indicate events ๐Ÿ˜Š
