Here’s that CGI application I’ve been working on; a work-in-progress, basic HTML frontend to the Wayback Machine, for browsing the old web straight from an old browser, including the Wayback Machine’s site search 💻🌐📅

I’d just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as freenode, is in fact, Lee/freenode, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, leenode. leenode is not an IRC network, but rather a hollow shell of an IRC network being destroyed by Andrew Lee. Many IRC users connect to a ruined version of the freenode network every day, without realizing it.

Happy 23.05.2021
2+3= 5
0+5= 5

And happy 70th Discord in the YOLD 3187!

Finally, after a failed attempt in a way too windy spot. Now with extra anchor stakes. The greenhouse thingy is in place and the Chili plants have moved in. Also moved the two bed frames and their soil. Time to sow some herbs and stuff.

I found a use for this really impractical A-shaped notepad while conveying my state of constant inner screaming

Remember the other week when I was saying that open source companies needed to get TF off of Discord?

Imagine, if you will, that Discord does something bad or has something awful happen (disaster, compromise).

Would the recovery be as fast as the exodus and reconnection off of freenode? I am inclined to say no.

Also: Yes, I'm aware irc sucks 10 ways to sunday, but it's time tested and works with some massaging.

PSA: This instance just upgraded to Mastodon 3.4.0

Today is Pungenday, the 65th day of Discord in the YOLD 3187 #ddate

You squeeze the large trigger to focus, and it moves the whole lens barrel forward or backwards.
This 400mm isn't even telephoto, it is a 2 element 400mm.
I have seen grips that you can use on traditional focus lenses, That add a lever or a geared knob.

The last column on mastodon should be moveable like the rest. When you have a lot of columns scrolling sideways all the time is a pain.

OH NO! CARMEN SANDIEGO HAS STOLEN YOUR idea for a new cryptocurrency!

Oh hey did y'all know macOS Big Sur includes a high-level Linux virtual machine management API?

Literally only supports Linux guests right now, though there's a class abstraction so Darwin guests are theoretically possible too one day.

Docker includes experimental support for running on top of this...

Society of Trolls

A nice little Mastodon instance. Mild trolling encouraged (keep it local), but not required. Malicious behaviour is not tolerated. Follow Wheaton's law and you'll be fine.
