The internet is often praised for speed, instant communication.

We use things people said online to crucify them. We talk of futures we fear or delight in, but it is all in the past.

The internet is far from instant. People change every moment. We have to stop condemning each other.

I'm not against debate, but remember we're all suffering and the below each side of an argument is someone suffering.

Throw out social media. Stop looking at and watching what other people are doing, instead of doing things *YOU* want to do.

Stop believing it's a form of entertainment. It's not entertainment, just pseudo-entertainment, which is a fancy noun for a fraudulent phenomenon intentionally trying to pass as genuine entertainment.

Instead, make content that you enjoy, even if it's only for yourself or an extremely small audience, instead of attempting to consume the entire Internet of Garbage.

That was a close one. First time playing our Valentine's Day gift together and we only had one game tile left before we escaped.

Recorded Cinco. I need to edit and draw for the cover. First up though, I have a group meeting.

Last week's pitch got me in the door somewhat, but I was cautioned that it might not be a good fit.

So, I sent over my rough draft against my own desire to put the best foot forward. Honesty, my piece may not be right for the site.

That's okay. Kudos for me for trying. I'd like to do this more often and get back on the horse, as they say.

@kai I've been somewhat disconnected lately, but I have noticed you have a few posts about making music. That's rad. I'm very happy for you.

I'm off to the post office in the cold.

It's a race, what will take my feet first? Diabetes or frostbite?

Always been on the beta channel for Firefox. Now that I'm mainly using Linux as a daily driver, I'm annoyed that I have to update Firefox in terminal all the time. I'm used to just clicking the update button in the browser via MacOS and WinBlows.

It's no big deal doing in the terminal, it's just the extra steps of building and then me having to put my password in whenever it finally finishes.

I said goodbye to my Obihai VOIP box the other day. I was using it to connect to Googs voice and stay in touch with friends in the US.

First, Googs is ditching the protocol they were using because it is open and not proprietary, XMPP.

Second, I've been trying to get away from Googs anyway.

I spent 2 hours trying to get internet back to the Windows 10 desktop I share with my partner. She pulled me away because I was getting really frustrated. I'm grateful for the break but eventually I'm going to have to sort that.

Upside: more reason to get aways from Windows completely and ditch Adobe products for open source.

Also fuck Microsoft and their horror story updates. Why do I pay money to be a beta tester?

The unsolved mystery I will take to my grave: why is changing a page of a Kindle book a simple tap, but and accidental bump of the screen fast-forwards about 2-4 chapters? WHY? For the love of Science, Why?

Wow, the pressure to be "one of us" is fascinating. Like I'm starting to feel guilty for not posting an thing.

Would anyone be interested in a pixelfed hosting service? I think that will be my summer project. #pixelfed

Seeing @garfiald in my feed so much reminds me of the brilliant Garfield Minus Garfield.

Making connection is part of . More than just like interests, I've connected to the following people via vulnerability. We discuss , , , and sometimes help each other. This is my cluster:

I hope you find a cluster here. Much 💜

The Nightflyers series seems like a miss. It feels like the creators were inspired by the disjointed storytelling of Alias or Lost. Like Lost, there doesn't seem to be a story in Nightflyers, only intrigue and hype.

Maybe there is story, but I just don't care about the characters. Perhaps this is my issue with horror type stuff.


I didn't like the "you have to be constantly angry" aspect of Twitter, I'm not exactly fond of it on Mastodon.
