Hi friends! Since is shutting down, I'm moving over to @eval :-)

Please excuse minor faffing during all the migration and stuff, data export from here is taking a bit; and see you on the other side~

@heyimdaf it's optional~ some people run their own instance which means they can choose any handle they like
or just use smaller ones ig (like glauca space!)

interesting question: does the Digital Markets Act apply to Northern Ireland under the Protocol?

thought: does the marketing of the 61016 service to text the British Transport Police breach the PSA Code of Practice? because they don't inform you at all that it's usually chargeable (10p on some networks!), except on the website

@reay Assuming this is a desktop -- does it have a keyboard/mouse attached? If you haven't already, try unplugging/turning them off, I used to have issues with my mouse randomly triggering a wake

Alternatively, you might have a feature called Power Nap enabled, located somewhere in Energy Saver preferences, though I'm afraid I can't recall where

Only other suggestion might be that your Mac is set to wake on receipt of a magic packet (wake-on-LAN) or other network traffic, in the past random devices on my network would somehow wake up my machine. I don't recall how to turn this off though intuition suggests it might be a checkbox next to Power Nap in Energy Saver, or in Sharing prefs.

In any case -- good luck!

@ariadne beautiful

on a similar note i would appreciate if xcode could require something less than 10x the download size to actually install, or at least inform me as such beforehand rather than taking ages and failing midway

@LottieVixen maybe contact epic support? They might be able to do something for you :c

really want to get back to doing personal projects, again, but we need to like... re-figure out how to do that

~~anyone want to hire me to just putter about on personal projects for a decent six-figure salary so I don't have to work in capitalism~~

@neil Starting to feel the same way; I’ve recently grown fond for old Palm webOS devices which are surprisingly open and nice in the hand (though also of their time — no secure boot / disk encryption…)
Something like the Pre3 with a modern SoC would be lovely, IMO.
Slowly working on porting mainline linux to the Pre 1/2 with an end goal of using it day to day, since they’re cute things.
(I’ve a drawer of spares currently used for testing, should you or anyone else vaguely friend shaped want to have a play around some time! Though would need to combine some parts to have more fully working ones)

if you thought browser user-agent strings were confusing, wait till you hear about search-engine user-agent strings for crawlers powered by crawler libraries that emulate browsers that are forked from other browsers on mobile operating systems that emulate other mobile operating systems:

@absolucy that’s really neat! does it get upset if the m3u8 includes higher resolution options too?

Reduce, reuse, recycle.


- In order to reduce, there need to be proper infrastructure to compensate for the thing being reduced;
- In order to reuse, things need to be durable and easily maintainable, modularly upgradable and repairable;
- If you go to the recycle step ignoring the first two, you've already lost.

As we see, just "changing consumer habits" doesn't work.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Any sufficiently advanced technology is insufficiently documented
