Totally Random Fact: The most viewed video in , for a long time, was "balıkesirin çılgın eşekleri" (Crazy donkeys of Balıkesir)

It had over 85M views before getting removed in (IIRC) 2017 due to, well, the contents of it.

There are reuploads and similar videos available, but I do NOT recommend you check them out.

The video is ~50 seconds of two donkeys having intercourse.

I assume the most viewed video here nowadays is a boring and generic piece of pop music.

Of course my old iPhone 4 can run DOOM.

I have no idea what I expected...

Also, is there any Mastodon clients that support iOS 7? I'm jailbroken, so non-AppStore stuff are fine.

Not for anything serious, just for some laughs.

What a terrible website... It can't even run properly on my phone!

I'm switching back to Facebook

Here is the "flickering" I was talking about in action.

(ps: Why doesn't Mastodon support MKV uploads?)

I just wanted to see what's new on my homepage in twitter, but after scrolling enough, the algorithm started to glitch out, and show me stuff I'd seen before.

I saw the same tweet thread for like 3 times, and the page visibly flickered, changing the visible tweets.

If only I could follow twitter people from Mastodon, but I imagine twitter wouldn't be too happy about that.

Well, if someone made a Mastodon instance, and called it "THE NEW TURKISH SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM", it's possible for some people to try it out, but a lot of people tried that with proprietary sites, and look at how they turned out: Basically dead.

The fediverse had an advantage of already being populated, but since most people here speak English, and most Turkish people don't care about learning English, that advantage doesn't help much.

To be fair, most people don't care about who's behind their apps, so the only way for alternatives to actually get into the market is for the big platform to mess up, like what happened with India.

But then, Twitter did censor stuff (to avoid getting blocked for a N-th time, I assume) and that didn't make people leave, so what will?

The only realistic event I can see regarding Mastodon is: Someone will leak stuff here and get it banned, along with associating Masto with "the bad guys"

After seeing the influx of Indian people to Mastodon, it only makes me sad knowing how you literally can't communicate without having some presence on Facebook services (primarily WhatsApp) in Turkey.

Well, there's nothing stopping you from using SMS/Calls, but people still expect you to have the app.

While yes, Mastodon isn't that comparable to FB's services functionality wise, at least it's a start on getting people outside of the corporation bubble.

I'm bored and I want to do something people will actually use, but I don't have any idea on *what* I should do and *how* I'd let people know it exists.

After an unexpected 7hr break, here is what I've found on my journey through my own data

ecmelberk.com/google-data.html

This was kind of fun, I should get more of my own data to play around with

So, my Google Takeout download has finished, and I went through all the data, and let's just say I was a little disappointed.

I wrote about what I found, and will publish it soon, just need to set up some kind of blogging thing to put it under.

Apparently, after my prepaid card provider's migration from MasterCard to Visa, my card doesn't work with Vultr (my server provider).

I think I can manage to borrow a proper credit card, but I don't know what to do if it happens again.

And please no phone calls. Oh I hate phone calls.

I asked Google for my data, and got ~85 GB of archives.

I wonder what's taking that much space. Let's find out (whenever the download finishes)

My internet speed suddenly spiked up to 100 Mbps.

Something fishy is going on here, and I don't want it to stop.

I can't believe the only reason my mail worked the entire time was because my domain's IP was the same as my mail server's IP.

The (broken) MX record I set up went completely unused and didn't need fixing at all, until about today.

I just went through the git-send-email.io tutorial, and now I have a very strong urge to either sign up to sr.ht or start self-hosting my git repos (again).

I just made a new avatar without having any graphics background.

I hope it's not too bad, but it's definitely not good either.

To be fair, the "random" things I was talking about are Google Play (purely for license checks) and SafetyNet (which I swear worked the last time I tried, but probably still WIP)
