It surprises me that Mastodon has kept on getting better and better. Everytime we get a major update, I think that Mastodon has finished adding new features and we won't see anymore big updates for a while, only to be wrong again when something I never knew I needed is released.

"here, use this browser that replaces obtrusive ads with more subtle ones!"

"But where do these other ads come from?"

"Our ad network"

"And who gets the ad revenue?"

"So you're stealing?"

"What no! We're getting paid for replacing the ads!"

"So you're stealing revenue?"

"Umm, no more questions!"

It's amusing that my workplace is replacing all of its current laptops with Lenovo Legion Y540s. Mind you, we're not software developers or a gaming company. In fact we're not even close.

But the overkill and longevity? Now that I can get behind.

Sometimes you feel shitty about your performance at work. Sometimes it's just for a day, sometimes it's a week. But however long it takes, remember you will get better.

If you’re still using Internet Explorer, now is a great time to make the switch. Along with our Version 4.0 update, ProtonMail will no longer support that iconic browser of your youth. protonmail.com/blog/internet-e

My friend and I deactivated our Facebooks together this weekend. I think Throw Away Facebook parties are a great idea - we want Facebook because it gives the illusion of community.

I have enough data to have a 2nd phone connected via hot-spot and I don't even give a damn.
