I've had enough of these cars. I have no more goodwill left. I've tried for so many years to be diplomatic about it, but this is the last straw. If you associate with these maniacs by driving a car, I have no more fucks to give you.

Twitch, a PSA, :boost_requested: 

If you're active on twitch and especially a streamer and SUPER especially a streamer of a marginalized identity, check your chats for someone going by a variant of "hoss00312". We've had to ban about 7 different versions now, and they've started sending out follows and stuff. We have no proof but believe them to be a forward scouting force for hate raids.

If you're not sure if someone in your channel is a bot, there's a site for that. twitchinsights.net/bots

Google just deleted the YouTube-channel for @thelinuxEXP, without any reason. It's a respectable content creator that makes videos about Linux and software.

I guess this should work as a friendly reminder to not use YouTube for anything that you care about.

Community drama, harassment, and infighting aside: how the hell do you point an outsider to a "good" instance that fits their tastes and also has a UI that matches up with what they want?

How do you recommend a platform with given considerations for features and a design that doesn't turn them off? How do you get them onto an app to start using the stuff regularly, and then get them to follow some people and start posting?

Every time I think about this stuff, I kind of feel like everybody here is some kind of outlier that just kind of stuck with it and made friends and found a reason to keep getting on every day. But, a lot of people here have been on federated platforms for a very long time. I feel like totally new people might be way less patient.

Got a tasty avocado today!

Yes, that's noteworthy when you live in the Arctic.

PSA: if anyone emails you from krita.biz, krita.io or krita.com with this "proposal", DO NOT FALL FOR IT, it's a scam. We don't own those domains and we will never spam you. Please spread the word!

That moment half way through typing in your password when you realize that the password input box is not focused.

Where did the first half of it go?!?

The Houston Computer History Museum is liquidating everything they have! If you are in the vicinity of Texas and enjoy old computers, go take a trip there and save a piece of history!


HT to @catgoat for sharing.
