You should block adverts on your devices. And make your friends and family block ads on their devices.
People who watch adverts are like anti-vaxxers - blissfully unaware of the benefits of herd-immunity. And dangerously undermining our collective safety.
@noelle @eightbitsamurai Sometimes something makes a young person feel old, and they talk about that. And as someone older than them I realise “whoa, the world has really moved on. There’s a whole generation of people where THAT is important, but for me and my generation something else was.” That can make me feel old. And the “back in my day” msg is about comparing, not criticising. The whole wrongness angle doesn’t resonate with me.
@noelle @eightbitsamurai As an old curmudgeon that kind of reasoning doesn’t make any sense. In my mind, if I reply like that, I’m thinking “what are you moaning about? You think THATs bad... back in my day...”
It can’t be “wrongness” because neither of these things is up for debate. You are who you are and I am who I am. Someone stating what they’re going through doesn’t threaten me at all. But it might seem like much ado about nothing. Hence the “in my day...” reply

About to grind out 10 competitive #overwatch qual matches. I’ve kinda gone off overwatch. But I’ve played every season since season 1. I’m not ready to miss out.
At my new house in the US, these are my #internet speed choices. 100Mbps, 300M, or 1 Gigabit! I currently have about 70Mb via BT in London. It's fine. I can't justify the gigabit connection. What am I missing?
Can't wait to get that #overwatch reward. Gonna get 0x000000000!

I think Jeremy Hunt is right. Only he’s got his definitions of “right” and “wrong” backwards. No Conservative party at all would be a good thing. Conservative values are important. People who hold those values should be heard, represented, and respected. But the current party is disastrous. The current party should be dissolved. (With Labour right alongside it)
Every day is a new day to discover a new fucking privacy-washing organization.
Today, let's meet the "Futur of Privacy Forum", funded by :
I don't know if I have to laugh, cry, or throw up!...
Thanks @aral for this discovery
I #travel a lot. This video on how to roll jeans has just changed my life and how I will pack trousers from now on. :)
@fedilab if you can write python and use cloudwatch events, you don’t need a 24/7 server that only runs a few tasks once in a while. Lambda functions run for pennies and cloudwatch events are cheap and can trigger them on a schedule. If you really just need a few scripts to run once in a while, it’s cheaper than a whole server. In fact, your usage might fit within the AWS free tier. Worth a look.
