Why is there no movie where Godzilla fights the Bagger 288?

In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.

Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.

An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg

You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here: switching.software/replace/goo

I am forever cursed to think of DarkSydePhil every time anyone says "DSP". It's more often than you'd think.

Today on reddit somebody messaged me asking for help on an old program called Osaka Simulator I uploaded to archive.org. It was really great booting up the program and helping them out with it, because this is something that LITERALLY NEVER HAPPENS.

So I got an old Dell Dimension 4500 for testing Windows 98 programs before I archive them. But most of the time it just sits there turned off. Any ideas of what i could do with it?

So how many people on here consider themselves digital archivists?

I keep remembering that Mastodon exists yet everytime I come back everyone I followed is either dead or switched

Hello it is i, 80's business woman in a romcom. I'm gonna be late for work otherwise I'll lose the big client that we've been working all year for, but oh no what is this? A handsome man from a small rural town is lost and is looking for directions, I sure hope I don't run into him again at a later date and then he takes me out for dinner as a thank you for showing him where to go and then I learn to slow down in life and move to the countryside to raise a family. I have important business meetings to do!

I know I could just partition, but I'd rather have more space for each install, and with the age of those drives, I'd rather loose a bit rather than everything when one fails.

Dell Dimension 3000 Update 4/4): Though if SD swapping doesn't work out, I'd also settle for some kind of 5.25 inch front loader for IDE hard drives, but fuck, I don't know if I could find one.

Dell Dimension 3000 Update 3/4):
But still, once I have the money, I'm continuing this project. My ideal goal is to possibly have an SD to IDE device in the floppy drive slot, so I can swap out the operating systems and run different versions of Windows 98, XP, the latest version of Debian, and if I'm insanely lucky, a 2000's version of Mac OS X.

Dell Dimension 3000 Update 2/3?)The Radeon 9250 card I ordered which I know from experience has good 98 and xp compatibility came in defective, so I can't even have fun with that -_-

Dell Dimension 3000 Update 1/3?): Good lord this project of mine has been a fucking disaster. I found out the CD drive was dead, and the backup I ordered has been stuck in shipping.

I kind of have a personal issue with nostalgia. In some ways I sort of cling to a lot of old things, be they past events, technology, memes, regardless of if they've aged well, and I don't even fully understand why. I guess one thing that bugs me is how quick people are to dispose of old things when they find something new, and I feel like an adoptive parent, giving something the respect it deserves when no one else will.
