Fedi usage PSA 

Don't. Use. Link. Shorteners.

Every link you post that's longer than 23 characters is treated as though it's 23 characters long.

Link shorteners do *nothing* except

1. Allow for folks to be tracked and their IP's exposed in some cases.
2. Obscure what you're linking and cause people not to trust that you're not going to link them something malicious.

Stop using them.

I won’t be abandoning you guys again this week! I have a cool, deep house set prepared for Dally Rhythms. Be sure to tune in at 2200 UTC on

PS, I’ll be available to chat in com

So I’ve just come across a new burgeoning genre called modbap. There are handful of people pushing the name/idea on YouTube, which is an old school hip-hop sound married to a modular synthesis sound. I think it’s interesting and filled with possibility, but kinda comes across as force-fed. Please check it out and tell me what you think.

I prepared a simple survey (using google forms 😞) in order to experiment with the idea of asking people their using a scale rather than a traditional multiple choice question. Just an informal poll rather than anything academic. If I find any interesting patterns, I'll write a blogpost about it.

Please boost if you think this is interesting!

Right now, there's a bundle going on at where you can get 743 (yes SEVEN HUNDRED FORTY THREE) games and counting for the minimum pay-what-you-want price of $5 and it's going to great causes. So yeah, go for it!!

For search engines, there's for small webpages, and someone posted on HN (this one omits the top websites and returns smaller ones).

And there's also, an excellent human-crated directory.

I'm not sure how the entire situation could become even weirder and worse, but at this rate I'm fully expecting 2020 to surprise us with a fleet of alien starships to attack Earth in July 😂

Sorry for not giving notice about Dally Rhythms today. I was out of service this morning and didn’t get back in time. I’ll be back next week.

We randomly found and watched In This Corner Of The World on Netflix. It’s a slice of life style anime movie set in Japan during World War II. While it was depressing, it was still really good and I recommend it.

Out of transparency and a reminder:

There is not yet a clear definition on how Tails likes to have its fediverse account managed.

At least until then, bear in mind that this account is not run by its core project members, but by a happy user and contributor of Tails. Nothing of what you read here, is an official statement.

Once you feel any discomfort how this account is managed, or have suggestions for improvement, please reach out to @syster (that's me) or this account.

Okay, finishing up my mix now. I’ll probably be back on later.

When and why did “gaming” become a design aesthetic?
