When I was young and still learning the ropes, there was just one type of guy: That Guy. The rule was "Don't be That Guy," and in theory, any guy who followed this rule faithfully knew where he stood.

That theory, however, turned out to be inadequate, even naïve. Nowadays, scores of new types of guy are identified every week.

But the rule has remained in place, leading to confusion and error, since no guy can keep track of all the different kinds of guy he's meant to don't be.

A paradigm shift is needed.

I play a game with @ejk where we try to find words that start with a random two letters. I was curious what the top starting letters were so I grabbed a dictionary in SQLite and found out.

On the one hand: fingers
But, on the other hand: more fingers

Hey, WeTransfer, I’ve heard a lot of Silicon Valley bullshit in my time but “we must violate your privacy to save the trees” is a new one even for me.

Please, take a fucking bow.

From now on I'm going to read "gorg" literally, as in "Wow your dog is so gorg" or "What a gorg picture"

Yesterday I launched the Webpage Text API: a cloud service that lets an app or web service request the HTML content of a webpage without the junk (chrome, navigation, ads, and scripts) that clutters modern webpages.

Even more hashtags to look out for:

#BandcampFriday - Discussing interesting artists on Bandcamp

#BreadPosting - People showing off their latest baked creations

#MastoDev - Suggestions for improvements to the Mastodon platform software

#Mosstodon - Photos of moss

#SmallStories - Fiction small enough to fit into a toot

#SportsBall - Talking about sport of any kind

#TokyoCameraClub - Japanese photography hashtag

Reply if you have suggestions!

There is bad reporting going on around the news about OnlyFans. Yes it is due to the "payment processor" MasterCard but *that* reason for change was due to Exodus Cry's incessant activism against PornHub and their attempts to abolish all legal forms of pornography, sex work, Strip Clubs, etc under the guise of "think of the children".

She's using the word "mansplaining" incorrectly and I don't know what to do about it

Why aren't you done with that thing yet?

Some more popular Fediverse hashtags:

#AmReading - Discussing books you are reading
