@Ricardus It lets you filter out text toots and only see the audiovisual stuff people are posting if you select the 'media' tab. Y'know, turns Mastodon into Instagram.

Sometimes... you just have to fucking go like hell.

I love this weird typographical illustration for this 1998 xerox patent patents.google.com/patent/US62 "Spatial morphing of text to accommodate annotations"

My favorite of Michelle Wolf's comments at the correspondents' dinner was that the media made Trump, and they continue to rake-in the cash because of him. I draw cartoons for ENTERTAINMENT magazines, not real news magazines, and do you know how many times I was asked to draw Obama in 2014 and '15? Zero. Today, I think I'm doing... what is it, my eighth Trump drawing for print? I've drawn Trump more than any other celebrity in the time I've done this kind of work.

@lain Yeah, a major function of the fediverse is as a sort-of support group for the Web-weary.

@lain Cool. I remember some years back after looking at Tent it occurred to me that you could probably find a way to do most if not all of the social, messaging, and Dropbox-type collaborative features that Tent was supposed to be a solution for with IMAP 4. A fun idea, but it was way beyond my knowledge/experience to explore.

@Cat I just noticed that that label also put out a Boy Harsher EP that I like. Time to peruse their back catalog!

I'm into this. It's a bit like '80s Cabaret Voltaire stepping into a slightly more Front 242-ish direction. Also, Aussie accent works well for EBM vocals. dkarecords.bandcamp.com/album/

You can cook with stuff from McDonald's!

I am now one of those parents that takes their kid to gymnastics class and works the whole time — 'CAUSE ITS THE ONLY UNINTERRUPTED HOUR IN THE WEEK.

@ChrisTalleras That's what I keep telling myself. They are optimally 30-minute meals. Practice/experience, an organized kitchen, and a bit of preparedness are necessary to get the execution time down. I am, admittedly, an absent-mided dawdler with a messy kitchen, so... there you go.

Has anyone ever cooked a "30-minute meal" in 30 minutes? I seem to make every recipe take 90 minutes.

Onion based federation is now working with #pleroma on #freedombone. This means that it's now possible to follow users on "onion only" installs.

This type of federation is quite significant, because it means independence from the DNS and CA systems. It means that even if you don't control your local internet router or don't have money to spend on domain names you can still create a social network. It significantly reduces the complexity barrier to entry for running a home server.

@namida12 Huh. That's funny. I cannot recall ever having drawn a person riding a bicycle before.

Sometimes you just feel like drawin' some dumb shit. This is from a year ago: alph.laemeur.com/img/H41.html
