I guess it bears repeating. Bluntly this time.

If you're going to send a follow request, please do something with your Mastodon/Pleroma/Whatever profile. No activity on your instance account looks fishy. ๐ŸŸ I'm just going to cancel it outright if that's the case.

I know I'm not the only one on the Fediverse that feels this way.

So, it seems that migrating over from one instance to another didn't work quite as expected. If by chance you see that I'mt not following you anymore and you're on a instance with a locked account, let me know. Though it shows as though I've sent a request and I'm waiting for approval, you may not have a notification about it. I'll resend the follow request again (...unless you don't want me following you anymore... ๐Ÿ˜…).

Well, I guess now that I'm on my new main instance, it's time for a new .

It's been a quiet Saturday after we got back from basketball practice. Spent most of the time watching The Office on NetFlix and spent some time on the new laptop. Other than that, nothing major. Must be the weather; I haven't even had the desire to work out today. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

When the Napster Wars began, the RIAA represented the Big Six record labels. Today, it represents the Big THREE labels, as an entire realm of human endeavor stretching back to a time before language itself is now the near-exclusive purview of three giant corporations.

They are tightening the noose. Yesterday, the RIAA sent a DMCA 1201 takedown notice to Github demanding the removal of youtube-dl, a venerable and popular tool for format-shifting Youtube videos.
