I often use my phone to turn off lights in my room. The light switch is just few centimetres too far to comfortably reach out of bed but I can flip it by hitting it with the phone.

ESL is like "sorry we DMCA'd people who were rebroadcasting the matches, we switched to streaming on facebook because we want to move the esports scene forward" fuck you with that facebook shit

Fanfic I want to read: Greek epics crossover to sci-fi & fantasty.

For instance:

A sci-fi story where Achilles is rescued by a time traveller just after he's shot in the heel. She pulls him forward to the 22nd century for a job that could only be solved by the greatest warrior in human history.

Gimme!

love too have eighteen people swarm into the house, hijack the wifi, RUN A FUCKING BITCOIN MINING PROGRAM ON THEIR LAPTOP, get their mewling shits of children set up with youtube videos to keep them occupied, and then complain that our internet is slow

I used to laugh at the idea of techbros but you know, the funny thing of my experiences is the merit of the code mattered a whole lot more in the corporate setting than it does in the hobbyist scene, which is built on social credit as much as any actual ability to solve problems.

To make the joke XKCD made once, someone's probably solved P=NP, and it's in the calibration code of a blender.

To extend that joke, they've probably done it and no one will care unless they are in the in-group.

Hey Mastodons, I hear you like open source and federation, so I'd like to tell you about gettogether.community/ an open source, federated(*) event planning service similar to Meetup

It's free to use, and while it's still very early development it is live! Try it yourself, share it with your friends, start a team ahd have a Get Together! #gettogether

* Federation is simple and minimal, any help would be most welcomed. Source code is at github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get mastodon.cloud/media/cPwAJ8QWw

@thecapegreek I've found Framasphere isn't too bad, but you're right that you have to subscribe to a lot of English language hashtags to see stuff that's relevant.

You're also right that Mastodon is better. It might have shorter posts, but this is where all the people are.

Black Mirror S04E03 was a bit much. My girlfriend was in tears over the brutality and even I was thinking it's a bit much. Though I suppose that's part of what makes it after all.
