My sorta-selfie sort of a thing. 🦋

I should really pose for some more, once I have more time for myself.

How do we feel about the Neo Geo Pocket Color fedi? There's a few games I've played for it and enjoyed but there are a bunch more that sound pretty cool that I have yet to try. I just downloaded a bunch of them to put on my Odroid Go Advance.

Crush Roller is a cool puzzle game somewhat similar in mechanics to pacman.

Neo Turf Masters is a good arcadey golf game.

Puzzle Link/Puzzle Link 2 are good tetris-ish puzzle games.

Bust-a-Move Pocket needs no introduction.

I'll report back if any of the others I try really grab me.

found out that a number of episodes of columbo received distribution in italy as standalone movies, and they got prime giallo-style hand-painted poster art, this shit looks so good:

One of the fun parts of sharing a name with a Nigerian musician who is continuing to blow up the scene over there is that I get to find out exactly how many radio stations there are in Lagos ('cause they constantly tag me incorrectly).

There are a LOT of radio stations in Lagos.

Kinda exciting to see some people from trying out GoToSocial. In the spirit of being honest + straightforward, I just wanna make it known to everyone that:

GoToSocial is still in ALPHA not even beta yet, so expect bugs. Many bugs! It’s constantly being patched and updated. Look at all these issues!

There’s lots of stuff missing still. Hashtags don’t work properly yet. Polls don’t work. You can’t upload videos. All that stuff is on the roadmap document, which you can read right here ->

Despite all that, it’s pretty neat software imo. It might be nowhere near finished but it’s already zippy and doesn’t use a lot of resources, and you can use it for day-to-day posting no problem.

SO! It’s awesome if you wanna try it out and help find + fix broken stuff, that’s the whole point of alpha after all 😎 But don’t expect a 1:1 smooth transition from Mastodon to GoToSocial, cuz that’s probably not gonna happen! If you have a low tolerance for jank and just want something that straight up works, you’re best off looking for other software at this point ;)

namecheap vulnerability they refuse to fix 

ok cool i quickly verified it and it still works

here we go: quick post on how 2FA on namecheap is entirely useless for preventing your domains from being hijacked

so, setting up 2fa on namecheap prevents anyone from just logging into your account if your credentials get leaked or stolen. great, they can't just manage your domains. HOWEVER, the namecheap support portal (at uses the same credentials for login BUT it never asks for 2fa. if you get leaked credentials you can just sign in to the support portal. because of how badly designed it is you can even change the support email for the account with no confirmation and no info being sent out to the old email.

how is that a big deal?

well, you can just open domain transfer tickets from the support portal and hijack domains anyways, you can probably even pretend to not understand how anything works and ask them to change dns for you, etc...

this makes 2fa on the main dashboard basically meaningless

but hey, don't worry, signing into the support portal sometimes prompts you for a captcha these days if you typo a username or they feel like it to prevent cyber attacks, so it's actually fully secured now /j

The fact that peertube exists in a state where the optimal course of action is to not actually release in any videos unless you got a bunch of followers from a number of servers, cus new followers aren't going to be able to see your old videos, is completely ridiculous to me.

Mind you, toots work the same way, but I'm more okay with that with something that's supposed to be ephemeral, videos take a long-ass time to make and you kinda want an archive.

Lupin the Third might be the only still running anime character with hairy knuckles. :thonking:

When I can't find my glasses I use my smartphone camera as makeshift glasses to find them.

Very cyborg. :blobcatcool:

the mastodon instance at is retiring 

for a lot of reasons, both personal and practical, i don't think i can effectively run a public mastodon instance any more, and i need to retire i want to do this responsibly and make sure everyone has a chance to migrate and export properly, so here is the plan for the instance retirement (feel free to share this link around):

due to ongoing moderation load issues and understaffing, between now and 1 november, the instance may be undermoderated. for other instances, if this poses an issue for you, i encourage you to use federation tools at your discretion. i would only ask that you be clear and public about your decisions so that users can figure out where they will be able to migrate their accounts.

thank you
