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!!!!!

@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?

That thrill when you get some cool shit to happen on your screen with some lines of code—it never goes away. 100% worth all the frustration that comes along with this work. I love what I do. 💖

"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.”"
