What the 76 in System76 stands for 

I learnt this the other day and ugh..

Please tell me I'm not crazy for thinking this is... I don't even have the words for it.

"In reference to the American Revolution, the 76 in our name declares our independence from proprietary empires through the freedom that open source technology provides. Will you join us?"

MP3's IDv3, and by derivation OGG and FLAC can store pictures of type "A bright coloured fish". And there is LITERALLY NOTHING on the internet to explain why picture type 17 is a fish. I've asked the FLAC mailing list, but if you know anything please let me know!

Decorated Streetcar, from the series The Enthronement Ceremony in November 1928 (Tokyo) A.D. 19283 Japanese Color lithograph

going back and forth on whether I want to replace this account

i will happily give up my pirated movies if it means that it's virtually impossible for nazis to organize over the internet

Show thread

what i hope can come out of this whole kiwifarms situation is to completely destroy this idea that the internet should be this free libertarian unregulated place or whatever

joe biden should put the gas prices back up

i have too many followers on this account anyway

Show thread

hmm i might not make a new account to replace this one. might just shut this down and keep my smaller presence on typespl

is the biggest instance so far that's been shut down?

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
