I really appreciate the help & support. Have a great day everyone!

been watching some 90’s star trek lately and… 

like, the quadrants (alpha, delta, etc) are a total social construction. the galaxy isn’t naturally divided into quarters, but this construct seems shared among every culture (the Founders know they live in the gamma quadrant, the Kazon know they live in the delta quad, Romulans know they live in the alpha…)

a real weakness in the writing. I’ll be taking this up with Berman, rest assured.

Photographing a cat is like doing a portrait except you need to provide extra headroom for whiskers and ear tips. Really important to capture every whisker and ear tip in the photo.

money and bs corporations 

My old gym is still trying to collect membership dues for an account I closed in August in a country where I don’t live anymore against a credit card which has been cancelled.

They’ve finally agreed to close the account effective today, but they want the past due paid lol.

Buddy, that sounds like a “you” problem.

I won because I am a human with a clever brain and the CI servers are lowly computers

money/exercise/health 

I saw a doctor to follow-up on my surgery from last year and they suggested doing strength training to replace the muscle that I lost. Sure, I'm already doing workouts 2x a week, on my floor 😬 I can't even do all the exercises I want to.

But now, under "doctor's orders", I've ordered a workout bench from a store in Montréal 🎉 Won't be here for a few weeks, but I'm so excited!

m.t now returns a “Permissions-Policy: interest-cohort=()” header on all HTTP responses. This opts the site out of Google Chrome’s new Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) tracking; this change will also be included in future versions of the Mastodon source code: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/
