Mmm. The password researchers at Georgia Tech have began another wave of bot sign-ups on m.t. In the “why do you want to join?” field they all have the same excerpt of lorem ipsum.

“While being an extremely broad generalist can work, it's gotten much harder to ‘know a bit of everything’ and be effective because there's more of everything over time (in terms of both breadth and depth).”

I've been an admin and moderator for chaos.social for nearly five years now (😱). A good enough reason as any to reflect on the Good/Bad/Ugly aspects of community management.

Good that they are deleting the data, although after this and the Minnesota Linux bug introduction mess I do wonder if there are any more studies like these just waiting in the wings. 🙄

Well I've heard there was a secret orb
that David pondered and pleased the Lord

we’ve got company coming for Christmas so we cleaned up the house early, that way it doesn’t have that “just been cleaned” feeling.

however, in my enthusiasm to clean the shower, I broke a silly little towel holder. the previous owner had already broken the other holder and repaired it with screws. I’m worried screws might crack the glass, so, superglue.

clamps.

Having bad opinions and being uninformed isn’t against the Code of Conduct, but what my theory presupposes is… what if they were?

Currently I’m obsessed with a series of sci-fi novellas titles The Murderbot Diaries, check ‘em out. Real fedi vibes, I’m on the third book.

The books are about a security bot that hacks its governor module so it can watch soap operas because it’s job is boring. Really fun prose, and done well with the protagonist not having a name or gender or anything.

The protagonist starts experiencing emotions, which it finds inconvenient. What an enormous mood.
