"They were sent on their way" autocorrect messed my words.

I'm at the birthday party for the 18th birthday of my wife's cousin. Upstairs there's a muslim wedding party. I went upstairs and was welcomed with open arms. I sent two girls down stairs to check out n our party and they were sent ok their way. I feel bad somehow.

Inspired by the wife, in the middle of her , I dusted the old Wacom for a spin.
Also calling for all the linux/artists around here : how do you deal with an old Wacom(cte430) and dual screen ? I have to disable one screen for the tablet to bind to one display or else active area is split between both screens :|

I really appreciate the modern trend of using the shortcode 'af' descriptively, because I immediately start thinking of punk air forces, cool air forces, hardcore air forces, funny air forces...

Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?

Some older, inactive Mastodon accounts are being turned into spam accounts.

Every account I've checked has been in the haveibeenpwned.com database, i.e. the spammers are using breaches from other websites and randomly trying e-mail/password combinations to get access to those accounts, insert spam links in the bio and start following people.

An exceptionally simple defence against this happening to you is using two-factor authentication. Check your account settings to see how to enable it.

I also played many other ultra-violent games.

Like Tetris, where entire rows of innocent blocks are robbed of their very existence, sacrificing their soul just moments after being called into this world, just so the deplorable asshole of a player can score points.

I’ve been trialing Pop!_OS on my laptop. It looks great and works fairly well out of the box, but with a couple of extensions installed (thanks to advice from people of the Fediverse) it’s brilliant!

I actually replaced Ubuntu Mate on my desktop with it last night. Really happy with it.

There is no such thing as a forest that is TOO quiet. There is a forest that calm, and at peace. Or there is a forest holding it's breath, being still and cautious, bracing itself.

A forest can be concerningly quiet. Unsettlingly so. To say 'too quiet' is to say a puddle is 'too dry'. If a puddle is too dry it is no longer a puddle. If a forest is too quiet, you are not in a forest.

You are likely in an illusion, and in very grave danger.
