If we want to get *really* scifi, maybe these hypothetical carbon capture machines could construct *themselves* out of captured carbon, possibly using some kind of tiny pod containing most of the materials needed to get started as well as the information to construct the entire machine... Maybe these pods could, themselves, be made through carbon capture using the same machines, making them self-replicating without any technical skills needed
But this is all some kind of absurd pipe dream, of course. It's not like self-replicating material-producing carbon capture machines grow on trees

There is no app called “Mastodon” because anyone can develop an app (and the aforementioned ones are made by independent developers). You can also use the website on your phone, it works quite well and has 100% of the features.

I recently learned the story of Lucius Beebe. He and his boyfriend Charles Clegg owned several luxurious private railway cars starting in the 50's. He was a journalist and noted fashionista who once appeared on the cover of life magazine. http://www.thegayalmanac.com/2017/12/born-today-in-1902-journalist-luscious.html?m=1
The vectorpoem discord server is no more. Thanks to everyone who participated and helped make it a thoughtful, welcoming community - I hope you all find a good home somewhere else; I don't have the energy to devote to maintaining a community. See you around for WAD Wednesdays and the like.
I did save an archive of the channels' histories, so its memory will not perish forever.
Musings on adopting Linux
So last night I managed to install #ArchLinux on an old scrap PC. It was brutal, but also made me nostalgic for the days when installing any distro felt like performing brain surgery. 😖
Seriously though, I think I'm finally gonna go all in on Linux when my 2010 MacBook finally dies. Probably with *buntu or something though.
