My favorite hobby is putting a book on my nightstand like I’m gonna read it and then laying there looking at mastodon until my eyes bleed

There's an alternative to Reddit on the Fediverse, it's called Prismo.

The first instance is here, and is open for sign-ups:

prismo.news

prismo.news/auth/sign_up

The project's Mastodon account is here:

@prismo

Federation is still being worked on, but you can already follow Prismo users and comment on their posts from elsewhere on the Fediverse.

For example, here's the lead developer's Prismo account:

The other day I speculated about putting new parts in an old Thinkpad, and it turns out there's a community of enthusiasts in Shenzhen doing exactly that geoff.greer.fm/2019/03/04/thin

It looks nice. It even has a much better screen, which I didn't consider because I didn't know that high-res LCDs that aren't 16:9 are even a thing. (it's 3:2? weird, what are these screens even intended for?)

It's also $1200 :(

But it shows that this sort of thing is possible.

once in a college course i sat next to a dude who would pluck his chunky ass vape out from his coat pocket in the middle of lecture and huff clouds into his armpit. he was probably hoping his coat would conceal the vape but it most certainly did not, he looked like he was literally steaming. thankfully the prof was distracted by trying to make the entire class about chiptune music so he never got caught

I feel like Scott Steiner is simultaneously the greatest *and* most problematic human on the face of the Earth.

In the last few months:
- Tumblr purged adult content (and a bunch of stuff it misindentified).
- Flickr purged free storage above a limit of 1000 photos/account.
- Myspace deleted 12 years' worth of music.

And Google+ only has two weeks left before Google pulls its plug.

how law school fucks you up: perceiving that every incidence of fellow student help is collusion and you will be wrecked by it. incidence: in your programming class where you are struggling to make something happen and you know a genius that can help you.

they even run a code help centre at the uni and im just so confused ethically.

When I was a kid, everyone thought there'd be lots of bionic people by now, not moronic people marching across Britain believing any old shit stuck on the sides of buses.

I thought I was hallucinating the link between Dum Maro Dum by Asha Bhosle and Grand Theft Auto. Alas, not:

being poor and living/having lived in poverty basically gives you a complex that makes you feel terrible about getting rid of ANYTHING

I love you but your public transport is killing me

netflix billed me. fuck. I've been using free trials via multiple bank cards and didn't realise they'd bill me at 00:00 of the damn day it was due.

I smashed my beloved and eternal workhorse samsung note 5 in this mercury retrograde so never underestimate how powerful they are.
