@aparrish aw man remember when Farmville was the very worst we thought Facebook was capable of

those were sweet, innocent days, weren't they

Do you use tail -f ?
Love those annoying "are you watching" messages on Netflix?
Ever thought.. gee I wish I could combine both these things?

You wish has come true with tailflix!

Been also working on the 5.0.3 packages for Yes amazingly this is not a security fix but fix a lot of problems they found when they released the editor out into the wild.

Still need to work on the security fixes for stable distribution. 😭

Version 1.3.1 of @halcy mastodon module was just uploaded to sid

This makes the module compatible with v2.3.4 and even has some basic compatibility

for all the shit people give Gargron, you do have to recognize that he was so moved by the abuses of proprietary social media services that instead of working for a tech company and becoming part of the problem, he did something about it.

yes. Gargron is not perfect. but, none of us are. there is no single person who is absolutely free of sin.

yes. there's a lot of things I disagree with him about, like the 300k user instance that is, and the way half of Mastodon's features are designed.

but that doesn't change the fact that he chose to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. and so, as part of my yearly review of what I'm sponsoring on Patreon I decided to give him some of those resources.
haha I like when people boost a single post I write and then follow me, that is just not wise

And to wrap up an epic day of news, guess what? The demo for encrypted, p2p deliverable content federating over ActivityPub works:

I need to document it and update its packaging so it's easy to try out, but the core concept is delivered on! What a day, huh? #spritely #wizardstower2019

I use Google services but wondered what this odd $10 per month charge was.

After lots of digging, I found somehow I had reserved an IP address for an old deactivated compute instance.

Wonder how much of Google's ( or AWS) income is from old crap nobody got around to deleting.

Fondly remembering the time when Billy Idol released "Cyberpunk" and when people on Usenet started ripping into him for not knowing shit about computers, he started replying to the threads.

It is very hard to make yourself go to sleep when you’re holding a tiny super computer full of your friends

It is 11:11

this has been your Irregularly Scheduled Unreliable Time Clock Post

Let's try this instead.

What are the names of your favorite story-driven games? Preferably science fantasy or fantasy in genre.

(Boosts appreciated, I want to collect as many titles as possible for analysis.)
