The post-operative advice said "don't make important decisions for 24 hours until the anaesthetic wears off" but they didn't specifically mention posting to Mastodon but maybe they should have.
I got given an old EeePC 1000H netbook from when netbooks were a thing. It has an Atom N270 and 1Gb of RAM. I've put Void Linux on, with 2bwm and am using surf from suckless.org as my browser. I can only really open one browser window/tab at a time.
I am enjoying the forced minimalism of this computer, it feels like a Netbook is a perfect tiny tilde terminal. Also the battery is a solid 3 hours on this 10 year old box.
(Posting via pinafore.social which is much nicer on small machines).
Listening to Death Song by the Black Angels (it's really good, the title might put you off, it's probably not the album you think it is).
"All we have is us and you and me …"
And I'm coming down from anaesthetic and scrolling through Mastodon so happy it all exists that I'm crying. So many people out there making things and causing change and providing comfort to others and just trying to make it in the world and get by.
word of caution: Firefox's tab right-click menu has a "Reload All Tabs" item. when you accidentally click this and have like 50 sleeping tabs open, some of which play audio, it's like opening the dang Ark of the Covenant
opml.glitch.me will scan your birdfeed follows and make you a file to follow any syndication feeds it finds.
I did this by hand as I unfollowed (and I am excite to see some of those feeds, like @mathowie 's, light up as some people leave for blogging instead of or in addition to here) but this is handy if you're just now seeing the light. 😉
on twitter you scream into the abyss
on mastodon we're all hanging out in the abyss, screaming, in a supportive and comradely fashion
Also this is the most Brighton airbnb I’ve ever stayed in look at this shit it’s like being in Human Traffic: 90s af
Wanted: A genre of games that feel like "dreamcast"
Not like games that would have been on that system (also cool) but instead games that embody the vibe of those words
like somebody went fishing for dreams and pulled out a game, and it's weird and unpolished and pointless and emotional
Surgery on both sides of jaw send drugs jk I have drugs
if Mastodon doesn’t work out I’m just going to start posting markdown files to a static site running on a Raspberry Pi and call it a day. to reply, you have to send me an email.
I rage-quit Twitter at the end of November in 2016. As someone who has worked in online communities for close to 20 years, I couldn’t stand being a member of a community where the people in charge cared so very little for their users. We worked very hard at Flickr to make sure that people were safe. Your company isn’t the government and you can delete any account at any time for any reason. If you create a community, it’s your jobs to ensure that it’s safe for all.
Went to a diner to eat alone while waiting for my car at the tire shop. Thought to myself “boy I wish I could listen to podcasts here without being weird” but I chickened out. Then on my way out I spot a guy eating eggs and bacon with AirPods just living his best life. FML
Finally actually made a part with this thing.
something in the back yard: [rustling noises]
my brain: bears are eating your corn, do something
I really wanna write up a little thing in Chinese, learn some Hindi and program some rust tonight. Fuuuuuck it's hard to focus
