Pinned toot

Notes on interacting with Joe 

- Generally I don’t really set boundaries for myself, I do what I think is right, but do politely let me know if I have stepped over any ;)

- I express mainly liberal views on politics, although I don’t strictly identify as a liberal, nor conservative, nor centrist, or as an anarchist, I have my own little political zone/movement, it leans towards middle-left though, just so you know.

- If you actively and knowingly support violence. Block. Of course we all make mistakes, even me, that’s fine; but there is too much pain and suffering in this world for more.

- I’m a Humanist, Humanism is an atheistic religion, if you don’t like this, then I’m not the guy for you.

- I watch The IT Crowd and Buffy, and no, I don’t like Graham Linehan or Joss Weedon.

- I like Nirvana. And I play DOOM, I realise this too much to take for some so, fair warning.

Other than that, I’m happy to talk and I try to be as inclusive as possible! Feel free to reach out!

Long, rambly rant about tech seriousness 

Technology, especially 'alternative' technology, is becoming way too serious.

E.g. The other day, I put up a toot on encouraging people to use XMPP and/or Matrix instead of WhatsApp, and a few minutes after, someone said 'err why not just use Telegram?', and I explained that I didn't like Telegram or Signal, and didn't wish to use those services.

It's even worse when I told my non-techie/normie friends, I got: 'Why not just use WhatsApp or Discord?'

I have EXACTLY the same whiney seriousness about gemini://

If it's not for you, don't use it and don't complain about this, I hate the unjustified 'Why nots?', stop questioning fellow users on their software choices.

The people that are murdering the democratisation of personal computing are sitting in Cupertino and Redmond.

Change my mind.

Ross Haze’s new remix of Supersonic is amazing, the extra layered effects, and the new acoustic guitar track really makes the song feel nostalgic and pop.

After @Shrigglepuss’s toot about making a playlist for your 16 year old self, I decided to actually make it, go grab it here if you feel like listening! 🤘

Quit editor, close terminal tab, go get a beer… no beer.

Well, I can make a White Russian… half & half was pushed to the back and is frozen solid. Guess I don't have to worry about it going bad.

Fuck. Jack & Coke? Scotch? No ice cubes.

I'm reduced to using leftover dregs of coffee, not even half a cup, microwaved, with some Kahlua.

The struggle. It is so very, very real.

No matter what anyone says THIS is the sort of acting that makes The IT Crowd great.

Do you personally pronounce @gnome:

Is there a format to create a scannable barcode/QR code-like image to store data files? I’m probably clutching at straws here, but something that would actually allow someone to grab say, a plain text file or Python script, without having the code to redirect to an external download source?

@joerebelloharley a TV show is a collective work by a large number of people. Punishing the large number for the actions of a dickhead gives undue preference to the dickhead. Were he a solitary artist then by all means cancel the hell out of him, but we can take a lesson from the Cosby Show or Buffy here. Celebrate all the amazing people who did what they did despite a dickhead at the helm. Use your enjoyment of that media as another moment to call out dickhead behavior.

Just learnt the Graham Lineham, you know, the bloke who wrote my all time favourite TV show, The IT Crowd, is a transphobic dickhead.

This means that I have to boycott The IT Crowd now, which is a shame, because I’d quite like the money to go to Richard Ayoade, and Chris O’Dowd, who are, you know, actually decent human beings.

Fucking annoyed now. Anyone know anything similar, and don’t say The Big Bang Theory because that’s a pathetic excuse for comedy.

Just got my vinyl copy of ‘Word Gets Round’, by the Stereophonics, best Welsh band I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a fan of, maybe Goldie Lookin Chain as well.

Don't get vaccines. Better to die from the #coronavirus than actually thinking.

Got myself a Proton Mail account! ;)

Just a simple free plan, but it’s all I need!

Never before has a single drawing so accurately defined how I feel about work.
