Those people who come to the fediverse because mssm (mainstream social media) finally apply some rules… while I think most people on the fediverse are here because mssm don’t apply (their) rules enough.

When science says you can’t go faster than the speed of light, people try to find all kinds of ways around it. Wormholes, tricks with entangled particles, warp drives. So when computers say you can’t divide by zero, I expect more effort.

So #AmericanGods season 3 is released after all on amazon. I was worried that nothing appeared on release day (10 January), but we’re going to get a new episode each Monday. So #NowWatching it while eating dinner. Time for my #EmilyBrowning (Laura Moon, ‘the dead wife’) fix.

Idea: when someone wants to respond to a post with an article that is marked as a ‘10 minute read’, freeze the UI for 10 minutes.

It really helps to add #NewPipe’s own repository to #fdroid. If you don’t, like I didn’t, you’ll end up with months of breakage.

Was looking into Daz3D's Genesis 8 earlier today (detailed 3D models). That's a whole new world I didn't know about yet. I didn't know human like 3D characters could already be so lifelike.

Surprisingly it seemed to me like a modern day Barbie doll kind of thing. You can buy human like models, choose your character, pose them, dress them, do their hair and makeup, place them in scenes. Very commercial too. At least they interface with Blender as well.

This is a cgi render? Wow, the photo-realism has really got so far that I can’t tell.

I finished #Bridgerton on Netflix yesterday. I liked that series. This first series is mainly Daphne’s story; according to my mother who has read all the books there are a lot of extra elements added and some extra characters.

I really liked the character of Eloise, the next daughter, who in this series gets some interesting extra subplots. She’s so different from the standard girls of the time, super interesting. Also her reactions in scenes even if she has no dialogue are worth watching out for.

The ignorance of girls on sexual matters features a few times. The funniest is when Eloise and Penelope go on a quest to find out where babies come from.

The film #ShadowInTheCloud with #ChloëGraceMoretz is released on streaming platforms today. I can't find which ones though, it may be US only even though I thought it was going to be world wide. For me #Netflix, #Amazon, #Ziggo don't have it.

I’m a bit annoyed that when an item of film news doesn’t specify in which country a film is going to be released, it doesn’t default to worldwide but to the US, even when it’s online only.

When you’re doing a training for a commercial product and it has an assessment with questions like “Does our product have ability A …, B …, C … or D All of the above”, then the correct answer invariably is D.

It’s great to soon see Harriet Cains again on my television. I saw her first in In the Flesh where she impressed with a heartfelt performance especially in series two. The best depiction of the emotional aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. Now she’s back in Bridgerton on Netflix.

Other actresses I’m excited to see in that series are Kathryn Drysdale, who to me was the core of super funny series Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, and in a main role Phoebe Dynevor who I know from the tv series Snatch.

I keep forgetting, then being surprised again, that wordpress initializes itself and everything (plugins, themes, filters, actions, classes, everything) upon every http request.
