"Life isn’t divided into genres. It’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky." ALAN MOORE

I'm always secretly hoping this technique will fail on some website because the security question check will be multiple choice. Like:

What was your childhood street?
A: Main street
B: Parallel drive
C: 2oL$IMf4@SGgOaC^q5XF
D: Baker street

It’s a brand new year. Introduce yourself. What are five things about you most people don’t know?

1. My street name is 2oL$IMf4@SGgOaC^q5XF
2. My dog's name is AuHBt4r&2s$n$gCN%9a
3. My mother's maiden name is nX1^L^PX0Kkj!Pz@aibH
4. My childhood best friend was Nf6nP$%9c@cRsTDoVY2B
5. My first car was a $Jvj9Q%XpUpv5WsAdGRF

... I'll block again.

You're not that special.

As someone who creates ActivityPub services, it's often a puzzle to figure out exactly how someone else's service federates. Like, what does service X do when I send it a Delete/Note activity?

In an attempt to be a good citizen, I've drafted up a file for my fediverse event organizing service I'm working on. Here it is:

I've also started a meta-discussion about how we might start documenting this stuff generally:

Power corrupts, and PowerPoint corrupts absolutely. -- Vint Cerf

And with a couple of more night shots, a very late beginning of the trip home. It's going to be well past midnight when I finally get there.
