Pinned toot

Let's give this a second try.

I'm Matt, I front a /#rock/#grunge band called Hearse Pileup.

I'm a with a keen interest in . Fight Club makes me feel like an but I'm not sure.

I like software and media. I'm interested in getting more involved in the scene, specifically supporting activists with my music. I don't see enough and scene is dying.

Looking to meet like minded and !

For the record, I don't think everyone on a.nti.social is all that bad really, but I do understand the motivations behind the block. And whilst I would like to think the situation could be resolved, it feels like the damage has already been done by now.

ugh, so it looks like the server I have my main account has had some issues with... Less than stellar behaviour with regard to issues around race. Long story short, it's been flagged for fediblock. It's a shame as I really liked that vanity domain too.

At this point I'm considering moving to either anar.chi.st, or kolektiva.social. If anyone has thoughts on the matter I'll entertain them.

Stop using "Zoom" as a general term for video conferencing.

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

"You have mail? Packages stack up ‘wall to wall’ at metro Detroit USPS center"

I'm sure the first thing folks will blame are all of those lazy folks in Detroit that don't want to show up for work. That's bullshit. Had our mail system not been sabotaged by the postmater general (that failed to give Trump the win he wanted) we might be better able to cope with this.

Be nice to your postal folks. They're going through hell to get you your mail right now.

Day 5: blade

Happy with most of these, though they're pretty easy to draw. However I messed up my timing for 3 and 4

Day 4: Radio

Not too happy with these. Last one isn't bad for 5 secs

Please tell me someone else out there has created the Muscle Barrel on F-Zero GX

If you have a screenshot pls send - this custom ship caused much hilarity when we first created it 😂

Aside from pulling an "Eternal Summer of the Spotless Mind", does anyone have any suggestions for replaying Outer Wilds?

I really loved this game, but it is truly sad to think that once I've learned everything that the game is effectively dead. I guess filling out your log book is a way to measure progress, but I'm interested to know if anyone has a suggested "attitude" toward replaying it?

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.
