for years "mods are asleep" has been a joke relic from the forum days but the fediverse brings us to an era where the mods can let you know that they're awake by boosting your "mods are asleep" joke and then you can scold them to go to bed because you know their timezone and this isn't healthy

#MyFirstGame was a Baby's First Edutainment Title called Reader Rabbit. I played it on my grandpa's IBM PC in CGA when I must have been like... 6 or so? I was not clear on the whole ~notion~ of what a computer was yet, at any rate, but it was SPELLBINDING to hit keys and see things happen...

Brexit, amusing, AG legal advice Show more
When is a summary not a summary?
When the original document was 6 pages, and the summary was 43 pages. =:D
That's the AG's full legal advice re Brexit, versus the summary he attempted to offer first, before Parliament forced the issue.

taking a new bart train through the trans bay tube for the first time and wow it's like, actually a safe level of noise lol
I never thought I'd see Microsoft throw in the towel on their browser engine. Or that, by the time it happened, I'd see that as a bad thing. Monoculture is still a problem, no matter who runs it. Firefox is going to be even more important in the future.
