@Tusky hi there! tusky is a great piece of work; i really enjoy it.

lately i can't play most videos that other users post. i see the animated loading swirl, then a modal dialog saying "Can't play this video." (attached) clearing the dialog returns me to the loading swirl and i have to use back to return to the tl/toot. i CAN download from the loading screen.

it seems more recent than the v9.1 update.

This is what I use to listen to music every single day, it's light, resistant, repairable, standard, carries 64GB of music and will play music for nearly 100 hours.

I paid 16$ for it.

Me: I'm the most hard-core descriptivist I know. In language, there is no authority beyond usage. Standard languages were literally invented to be useful to nation-states. Language policing is almost always some kind of bigoted: classist, racist, ableist, sexist...

A British person: "orientate."

Me: NO.

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.


very comfortable procrastinating by building the tools to do the thing
