@thurloat statistically speaking, everyone gave up and continued using github because inertia wins.
i've got a gitea instance for my personal stuff but of course it makes little practical different because 5/6 of my job lives on github.
i guess my plan is to check and see if anyone has made any headway on the "federating" bit of the question in 6 months to a year from now. i'm not holding my breath.
uspol / health insurance Show more
"What's the big deal about preventive care?", asks this morning's marketroid spam from my insurance provider.
i dunno - you fuckers and your ilk have made it almost impossible to obtain? is that the deal? it kind of _seems_ like that's the deal.
depression, music Show more
i'm listening to _yankee hotel foxtrot_ for the first time in a while.
when i bought this album, it was the soundtrack to being depressed as fuck in my early 20s, jobless and still sponging off my parents, crushing desperately on someone i barely knew (and should have known better than) from another state, and just totally lost for any idea of what to do next. i didn't have a lot of reasons for how bad i felt, besides my fucked up brain chemistry, but i didn't know that then.
@garbados @Annalee yeah, i'd second this. at some very rough estimate i bet a third or half of what i read and respond to here is political in some sense. it's just really helpful to have it explicitly labeled.
(i sometimes wonder if content warnings would feel better to people if they'd been explicitly framed as a kind of tagging system, but i suppose that overlaps with the notion of hashtags and would have gotten confusing.)
@nfgphoto oh, fighting words in many contexts, to be sure. highly impolite in many conversations. but, having made a fairly staggering quantity of the stuff myself, and consumed a good deal more, i'm altogether comfortable with the _idea_ of bad art. a lot more comfortable than i am with the idea of gatekeeping what qualifies _as art_, at any rate.
i don't mean to imply some universal golden standard or anything, but "bad art" seems at least as valid as "bad weather" or "bad food".
@Altruest i figure this is all kind of implementation-dependent, right? like, are they simulating particles of matter or just kind of... the frames of human perception with enough resolution to pass, most of the time?
i feel like the glitches we see indicate something more like the latter, but it's been a long time since i've seen the movies.
