Conservatives: “I don’t want to live in a leftist world where I’m forced to be nice or I get punished!”

Me: *full eye contact, slowly tapping a Bible”

I guess the moral is that nothing will ever be as cool as a conservative nightmare

Hey people of the fediverse! Since we've published Tutanota on @fdroidorg we've immensely improved battery consumption. Now we'd like to know how much we've achieved. If you have adequate software on your phone, could you track battery consumption for Tutanota for 24 hours - without using the app! Consumption should only be tested for the Google-free notification system.
@charlag Please comment if testers need more technical info!

Since the topic of #censorship is going around again, it might be a good time to brush up on a PSA about how censorship and platforms work.

Just read toot!'s announcement about blocking gab and I fully support it.

What I don't like is the massed amount soap box suzies whining and complaining that what he's doing is "censorship".
Or "If you block this, how long till you block [utterly unrelated thing]?

Fuck you and fuck nazi's. Block their method of communication, give them no safe space, no where to relax, no allies.

Let them live in perpetual fear that they will be found.

Fuck nazi apologists.

I miss the era of game design where they'd just put three 20-year-olds in a closet with a computer and a big bag of coke, and two weeks later they'd pop out screaming "IT'SBIRDJOUSTINGINAVOLCANO! KNIGHTSCOMEOUTTAEGGS!" and there'd be another arcade classic.

Who decided on this recent-ish sci-fi trope where--in a bleak and not-too-distant future--handguns will work exactly the same as they do now, but they will all have ridiculously oversized barrels and frame attachments for no reason?

Why do wizards so often have long hair? It seems like a fire hazard.

correction: it has come to our attention that the "PC police" does not refer to those who strengthen cyber-surveillance to shackle the working people and aid the capitalist class in their ceaseless hunger for power and control, but instead those who don't like slurs. we apologize for the confusion.

I'm pushing the idea that Fleetwood Mac's "Second Hand News" is about an aging, increasingly job-insecure sniper.

I've started doing updates in a TTY partly because it's recommended, but mostly because it makes me feel like the "hacker" character in a '90s movie. I just wish the screen was bright enough to project the text dramatically onto my face.

Oh hey, a recommendation for y'all with noise-sensory problems. I'm finding this site really helpful for making me less jumpy/grumpy in my office work setting: mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/

There's nature sounds, drones, musical ones, transportation noise, industrial background, and more. All the visible ones are free. Toss him a few bucks if you like it, and you'll get access to more. My fave is the data center one, with the drones close behind.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And then the murders began.
