This would be 405 South just after the 101 interchange headed into Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. Wikipedia calls this "the busiest and most congested freeway in the United States".

What's the best way to share a video on Mastodon?

Hey, mastodon.sdf.org is getting an upgrade soon! Check bboard announce for details!

@smj, is the server growing a catalyst for the major upgrade? I still don't have a sense of stats, is 60GB of disk a lot of an instance of this size and history?

Describing how the "same origin policy" applies to cross-domain javascript to a non-technical person is very difficult for me.

I've made a post about how better to join #mastodon. If some of you who still have a twitter handle comment rt or fav it, it will rank higher in the thread and many will read it.

Just having an 'emotional support' discussion with a friend who got himself into a situation and is panicking, and I'm gonna say the same thing here that I said to him in case someone needs to hear it;

If you are in mental distress, you are excused from everything and do not need to 'conform to societal expectations'. You do not need to excuse yourself from whatever situation you're in, you can just leave. It's okay. The people who love you will understand and those that don't don't matter.

When you Google "ASCII table" the first result is asciitable.com, but that is actually a terrible website. The table is just a big .gif so you can't search it, or copy and paste. On the off chance that anybody reading this has linked to it anything they've written, please consider linking somewhere else. ascii.cl seems alright?
