@ Every racist who thinks they can convince me it’s not reasonable to replace tech words: language is literally made up! You can make new words! If BIPOC say that the word “master” should be literally and entirely erased from the English parlance then I am right behind them!! It’s called a Florp’s Degree now. A florp craftsperson. A chess grand florp. See? You already know what I mean! Language is fucking mutable you ridiculous cockmuppets.
If any of you have used the word ague in the past year? It used to be super common not long ago! But language changed because people changed the way they use it!

I consider the existence of Balena Etcher an Ozymandian emblem of the failures of all of modern computing.

for those who use Toot! App as a client on mobile, there's going to be a feature to visually distinguish bot posts on timelines included soon! github.com/DagAgren/toot/issue
Yay and thanks to @tootapp

Also I remain annoyed that there was a feature to mark bot toots visually on the timeline written and *merged to tootsuite/mastodon* but the commit got reverted like a day later for seemingly unrelated reasons github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

oh and if you run a bot that @'s people without them explicitly opting in, I will block you, report you, and curse your RAM to periodically corrupt itself

Periodic reminder to please not boost un-CWed ebooks-bot posts they are super draining to read for myself and many others :)
And if you run an eBooks bot, every post should be CWed with no exceptions, you can't control what it'll say and I don't want to read it.

Just saw a hipster shop called “Wealthy Health” and boy if that ain’t a description of both who can afford gentrified white homeopathist wholefood shops and also healthcare under capitalism

Today I can go to the makerspace for the first time in weeks, yay! The laser cutter has a spiffy new 100W tube and is apparently cutting 7mm plywood at 30mm/s! I have a design for some shelves for the space’s soldering stations & power supplies that’s been waiting to be able to cut 7mm ply again.

Panel 3 & 4: get the landlord to pay me for the dishwasher

She lives! In my purely whimsical fashion of naming appliances, her name is Corinne.

Tfw you have to drill holes in the under-sink shelf to get the new dishwasher’s hose into the required siphon shape, and can only do so from below. Much dust in my face

The bad kerning of the web customiser and the endless ads for activewear I will no doubt receive on youtube are the punishments for my sins
