it's time for my favourite game, Windows or Capitalism, where we try to guess whether a statement applies to windows or capitalism
- it's obnoxiously expensive for no reason
- corporate monopolies allow the big companies to stamp out alternatives and present themselves as the only option, driving up prices to ridiculous levels
- you are constantly pressured to spend money. in fact, if you don't have money, you can't participate at all
- advertisements are a fundamental element of the system
- most people who have souls despise it, but remain complacent because "what are the alternatives? this is the way things are"
- the mere mention of the names of alternatives disgusts many people
- the people in charge don't give a shit about you
trick question!! all of these statements apply to windows AND capitalism!!!!!
Trans Internet Security Risk Show more
Big scary security side eye at the new Trans Browser Extension "Shinigami Eyes" which encourages trans people to tag pages as "trans friendly" and "anti trans".
Have already seen trans friends on social media have their pages on like facebook etc tagged. This can be done by anyone. It turns text links green or red respectively. So basically we're outting each other? Surely a huge dataset of trans people is incredibly stupid and dangerous?
Looks like I can cross Ring products off of my list of things ever to buy
so on the eve of the #tumblr shutdown, Tumblr IP-blocked the Internet Archive.
Just to be EXTRA dicks.

@PawelOrzech Go to any list of users, like people who favourited a toot, then try scrolling past the end.
@PawelOrzech I’m not sure I can accept that judgement when I have a signing elephant and a hidden pool game.
@tootapp I generally like your Mastodon app best. I‘m missing one thing though: Is there a way to see the instance or federated timeline?

"The Japanese Man Who Saved 6,000 Jews With His Handwriting" by David Wolpe
"After the ceremony, in front of some 1,200 students, I spoke with his one remaining child, his son Nobuki, who arrived from Belgium to honor his father’s memory. He told me his father was “a very simple man. He was kind, loved reading, gardening and most of all children. He never thought what he did was notable or unusual.”"
