Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

@Gargron Just noticed the text field for the alt text for images does not grow and is a one-liner which makes it really really hard to write longer descriptions as scrolling in that field is nearly impossible, in Safari at least.

Only two more days till VLC will get in Christmas spirit!

Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!

(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! 😄)

@maha Neulich in einem großen Supermarkt in Rumänien (gibt es aber auch in den dortigen "Penny"-Märkten). Ob und wie das angenommen wird, kann ich aber nicht sagen.
Aber unverpacktes TK-Gemüse finde ich schon wirklich erstaunlich.

Most Mastodon servers are operated by people like you, out of their pocket. Check if your server has a Patreon! It's usually on the "About this instance" link, where the rules are. Support your admins, especially if they're not me!

@Gargron Are there some issues with mastodon.social? API seems veeery slow and getting a lot of timeouts.

Expectation: Markdown provides the same syntax for easy formatting everywhere

Reality: Every other app implements it slightly differently and you'll have to try and edit your messages to put something in bold.

I've started feeling a kind of slight revulsion at the phrase "hot take" because it's like you're specifically signaling that it's rushed, not thought out, possibly lacking nuance, and you're proud of it.

This is not a subtoot, I've been sitting on this sentiment for at least a week
