Today's discovery is On a Sunbeam, a crazy webcomic about humanity, class, gender, wild creatures, love, or even space construction. Start reading 1 page and you'll wake up 3 hours later in a stupor, at chapter 20. There's been colorful shapes blending together, stories of magic and ancient creatures, weird people with hats, and you're left wondering what happened, with a small smile on your face.


Merci @bram pour la découverte !

Instagram: My life is a party.

Snapchat: My life is a quirky TV show.

Facebook: My life turned out great!

Twitter: We're all going to die.

Mastodon: Don't worry, while we are on a quirky, meandering path towards an inevitable apocalypse, we might as well enjoy the ride and show eachother some love in an unorthodox, yet irresistible manner, not in any way hindered by considerations of style, identity or consistency.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again!

La rue était vide. Vide de gens, vide de vie animale, vide de végétation même, de ce qu'elle pouvait constater.

C'était une large avenue de pierres blanches, bordée de murs blancs nus, surmontée d'un ciel bleu sans soleil ni nuages.

Aucun souffle de vent ne troublait l'air.

Elle se mis en marche. Ses pieds ne faisaient aucun bruit sur le sol. Elle tenta de crier mais aucun son ne franchit ses lèvres.

Elle sortit​ son téléphone. Pas de réseau.

"L'Enfer" songea-t-elle. À raison.

A kind reminder to all Internet developers: 

Hello World. Time for your "la joie de vivre" lesson of the day.

Lesson 4: Le Sunday.

It is a very very important day in France. We are going to eat at our parents home, meals cooked by our mothers since 5 hours. Around a table, we scream "YOU NEVER LOVED ME! YOU MADE MY LIFE A NIGHTNARE!"
At least, we ask them to babysit our child Wednesday because we want to go to a movie theater.

Rebonjour World.

It's 12:00 in France. Lunch time. Very important for us. We're about to take our fifth meal of the day, called "le déjeuner". Very very important. It's the one where we walk in the open space, in way of the micro-wave, with a Tupperware. Very very important. We talk to other people, generally French as us, about the food in the Tupperware's, ask
-"takoitoi ?" (what's in today?).
-"Croustillants de pomme de terre et son cochon à l'horizontal" (French fries with spam).

The federated timeline on mastodon.social is currently not automatically updating, due to a "fix" at 3am. (CET)

It will get "unfixed" when our main-dev wakes from his slumber.

So you need to reload it see the new posts.

I do not know how this affects other instances.

OK, so just learnt we can "defederate" instances. Good.

But this isn't realistic on the long-term: harassment mitigations and other things like that are a full-time job, almost 24/7.

Also, the "mail-address" model creates some issues, in the end:
- lack of possibility to easily find contact
- strong issues with identity theft (see how @numerama solved this issue - OK, that's also part of the federation "pros")

I'll have you know that if you mess with mastodon you mess with the entire nation of France
*ownage increases*

Et si Mastodon perçait massivement en France et nulle part ailleurs ? Ce serait une revanche du Minitel sur le web qu'on attend depuis longtemps !

OK, j'en ai marre qu'on parle de la dette. Vous voulez la réduire? augmentez les recettes.

Ça veut dire augmenter les cotisations et les impôts.

Les classes moyennes payent trop d'impôt? Prennez aux plus riches putain!

C'est compliqué à comprendre? PLUS DE RE⋅CE⋅TTES
