"So you are the last dragon?" the knight asked.
"There is a last of everything."
"But was there no mate, or-"
"Mate?" The dragon laughed. "You think we mate? No. Dragons are born from cats."
"Cats?"
"If a cat is ambitious enough, and works very hard, it is reborn a dragon."
"Oh."

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the first ever Request for Comments (RFC), I'm doing a project where I read the first 365 IETF RFCs in 2019.

Don't know what an RFC is or why I'm doing this? The explanatory post is up! write.as/365-rfcs/365-ietf-rfc

You can subscribe via your ActivityPub client of choice by following @365-rfcs

Mozilla's take on the Edge news.

"By adopting Chromium, Microsoft hands over control of even more of online life to Google... We compete with Google not because it’s a good business opportunity. We compete with Google because the health of the internet and online life depend on competition and choice."

For those who have not been in on the beta test already, this is an Mastodon client for iOS, full of character and whimsy. It is multi-instance, multi-account, it is fast, it is comfortable and it is above all a lot of fun!

It has a strong focus on user experience, animation, and attention to detail, as well as being the best client for Mastodon around. Try it now!

y'all discord users ought to send an email to them saying you opt out of their arbitration clause in case they ever need sued

if you don't trust me read the eula yourself and decide if not having your right to sue them taken away is worth an email

(or, you know, maybe avoid the service entirely if you're able and willing)

Does anyone remember an #AcornElectron game kind of like Labyrinth or Ravenskull, but with a plain black-and-cyan palette? It had bats as enemies, and a big skully monster that would eat you unless you had some smelly cheese with which to knock it out. #gameing
