If you have a 100Mbps cable connection and a 300GB data cap, you're only allowed to use it 8.3 hours per month. 50Mbps LTE and a 10GB cap? 33 minutes per month.

I've asked my senators to introduce legislation requiring ISPs to include how much time per month you're allowed to use their services at full speed in any advertising.

Hey! Did you look out the window today?

Take breaks. Set a timer if you have to so you don't forget.

Ask for help when you need it. It sounds simple, but trying to handle everything without help causes stress and anxiety for a lot people.

The length of copyright expiry is fucking insane

I was thinking "oh hey, I should build a gopher site, I wonder what I should put in the misc. files section"

I thought, hey, episodes of the goon show would be nice

The Goon Show was broadcast between 1952 and 1960

You'd assume that they'd be out of copyright by now

No

They come out of copyright in 2083

ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY THREE YEARS after the last episode aired

Self-care (cont): You don't need to have a window open to social media so you get every little outrage or lol in real time. You don't need to bust your budget or put in overtime so that everyone gets the perfect xmas gift. You can give yourself breaks as long as it doesn't put other people at risk. You should devote time to creative hobbies and fitness for your long-term health.

The meeting was incredibly boring and it felt like it had been going forever. Then Laura noticed something... Didn't Oliver just repeat a suggestion he gave 15 minutes ago, word for word? And didn't Mia also just respond to him the exact same way? How long have they all been in here?

Me: I’ll join Mastodon and post there instead of twitter
Me one week later: *posts to both and has even less time*

You’ve been given the strangest superpower ever - whenever a Subway runs out of Italian Herbs and Cheese bread, you instantly teleport to that location with loaves.

I'd really love to know what this counter.social buzz is all about

I wish there was a universally-agreed-upon signal you could add to a slack/email/DM to mean "this is purely informational and I expect no response at all from you"

Hey, remember when Twitter first started and everybody knew immediately how it worked?

Good times...good times...

Another day, another burst of new users from Twitter who are kind of confused about this whole “instance” thing. Here’s an analogy that might work for older folks like me:

Each Mastodon instance is a BBS. And they are all connected behind the scenes, kind of like FidoNet or WWIVNet.

We don’t have any door games, though. Sorry.

Please direct your friends to joinmastodon.org or another instance of your choice like octodon.social, toot.cat or toot.cafe, etc. mastodon.social is "default" choice for a lot of people and it's getting kinda hammered right now.

Please remember that Mastodon supports account deletions. You don't have to e-mail me about it, just click on the gear symbol, then Security, and there you have it. I like receiving e-mails and get excited when I get a notification, seeing a "please delete my account" spoils the mood.
