I wrote a small blog post on #Mastodon and Nazis

@bram This is a squirrel that celebrates Holi all year round! Does it just paint itself grey for Holi?
@kusuriya I’m still nursing my iPhone 6. I looked recently and don’t think I will go farther than an 8. FaceID sucks. TouchID is awesome
I plugged in my #iphone 1 that I bought on day 1 in June 2007. It runs iOS 3. The App Store STILL has apps for it. Can you believe that? Go find an Android phone from 2007 and see what love Google is willing to give it.

@fitheach At the time I was living in London and thinking everything is better together. UK with Scotland, EU with UK. Having watched the English railroad the Scots and fuck over the Irish in Brexit, I’m starting to think maybe the English need a little time to themselves. Maybe in the future I’ll trade in my British passport for a Scottish one.
What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us Show more
For every gross dude you tolerate, there's almost certainly several people who are pushed out of that space you created for him
The more influential the gross dude, the more people will emulate him and help to push out even more people
And it's mostly women who get pushed out
So for the likes of RMS and Torvalds, the damage they have done to the field of Computer Science may be incalculable
@Sharkiebeeps That's awesome. When they redid base building, I logged in to find my base floating a 100 meters in the air. I had to build this massive ramp down to the ground. Can't find the screenshot... Only funny thing I posted was on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/NoMansSkyTheGame/comments/a81p3z/i_cant_find_my_ship_has_anyone_seen_it/
@Sharkiebeeps I got it on day one and despaired on day two. I routinely go months between playing. (I loaded a game this weekend that was last saved 25 Dec 2018). They've made something amazing now, but the scars remain. We've found so many item duplication bugs in multiplayer. I routinely have over 1Bn units.
OMFG I just went to buy something using PayPal.
1. They didn't have a credit card on file. Fine. I'll add one. I get an error.
2. They recommend chat with support. Fine. I wait 10 minutes for support drone.
3. Support drone needs to authenticate me. Wants a mobile phone number. The one they have is out of date. He gives me a phone number to call.
4. I use Skype to dial the phone. I copy/paste the CC number to the voice response system. Poof! Works like a charm.
This makes no sense.
@fitheach @kensanata @tsturm Back in March, when the original deadline came, I had 4 weeks of food stocked in my garage in my house in the London suburbs. I’ve since moved back to the US. I knew a ton of Europeans who were uncertain about what would happen; they moved back to Europe. Once these bitter English people are all alone and isolated, they’ll blame others for Brexit’s failure and won’t understand why it all went to hell.
Tonight’s #overwatch is neither sober nor serious
Marketing math. Making mac and cheese in 10 minutes:
1. Boil 6 cups of water (takes 0 minutes)
2. Cook pasta 9-11 minutes (takes 9 minutes, even if you boil for 11 minutes)
3. Drain pasta (0 seconds because you multitask)
4. Add butter and stir (30 seconds)
5. Add pasta back to pan and stir (30 seconds)
Amazing how this is in any way “in 10 minutes”
