I need to rehome my beloved dogs. Both are ~9.5 years old; Rosie is a terrier, and Artie is a German shepherd mix. Both are sweethearts and get along with people and other dogs and cats. Both are crate trained and both have been around children.

I've had them since they were puppies, and I love them with all my heart, but my life is about to shift radically and I don't think I can care for them any longer.

I'd rather they go to someone in the mid-Atlantic who will send lots of pictures. <3

I have to give a presentation at my school tomorrow about a technical topic that interests me. I've chosen Mastodon, and I'm planning to show this toot to everybody at the end. Share some Mastodon love below!

Twitter "historians"

This is good to see... scoop.co.nz/stories/HL1905/S00 but it misses a key component... the centralised global dominance that these systems implicitly represent. That is the underlying problem. Facebook's incentive to do the wrong thing is too strong, and it's far far too powerful. It's beyond the ability of any government to rein it in. We need to put it, and any similarly domineering and exploitative tech, out of business. We do that by abandoning it en masse.

For me, Twitter's non-chronological timeline is a nice feature. I enjoy checking it on my phone (and desktop) from time to time because I know there's a good chance I'll be able to catch up with the most interesting tweets quickly.

A lot of small businesses use huge clunky database sites, when a minimal site like this would serve them way better. (In my opinionated opinion.)

It's not for everyone maybe, but I think handcoding a web site in html and css is less work than doing a comparable site in wordpress. Just text, links and image galleries, and a couple php tags so I can use one menu across all pages.

Maybe I'll think about a way to add a form eventually, but that's not important right now.

I'm pumped about my 1.2 second load time, and that's before I've optimized images.

I told my friend about it and she did not understand the joy this brings. πŸ˜†

β€œDemanding privacy from surveillance capitalists,” says Zuboff, β€œor lobbying for an end to commercial surveillance on the internet is like asking old Henry Ford to make each Model T by hand. It’s like asking a giraffe to shorten its neck, or a cow to give up chewing. These demands are existential threats that violate the basic mechanisms of the entity’s survival.”

Patch went out this weekend. Lots of quality-of-life improvements, and an improved boss fight with the wraith in the Catacombs.

I'm so tired of Windows. Unfortunately at work, I'm not able to run Linux on my desktop. I'm thinking seriously about asking for an Apple computer next time, but I'm really torn. I'm NOT a fan of Apple. They annoy me on a visceral level. I can't decide if putting up with Apple is a better path than putting up with Microsoft. Neither is a good option in my mind. Maybe I'm just short tempered today because it's Monday?

9 years ago, I signed up for Facebook. I was still 10 at the time!

However, month after month, year after year, I have been using Facebook less and less.
It became one of the worst thing humanity ever created.

Fuck you Facebook, and goodbye.
