Read this. This article pretty summarizes what I see every day. And when I criticize it, half of the audience doesn't understand my point. They are simply to young and grew up with smart phones and fast lines.

Programming is 99% plumbing, 1% really hard mathematics. When those who excel at the 1% build the remaining 99% also, you usually end up with systems that have unnecessarily-complicated plumbing.

I made another RPG this month, this time about faerie lords who were exiled from the fey realm (possibly because you destroyed it).

Now you are a creepy nightmare reature wandering the desert, using magic bells to lure victims I to the sand wastes so you can slaughter them and steal their memories.

Blindlysocial.masto.host exists.

Netizen @Aaron_h2002 and @fireborn are building an instance for the visually impaired and the blind.

Follow them, and please help them get this off the ground, I look forward to what they bring to the fediverse.

@ImprobableIsland @ajroach42 Don’t know how he came up with the idea. Did it while in the after session childcare after a STEM day camp. Usually they just play games or watch videos. This wasn’t part of the camp itself.

Hi, everyone who just showed up from Twitter! I'm so glad you're here. Make yourselves at home, get a feel for the place, and if you like it, let your friends know about Mastodon!

Meanwhile GOD WHY ARE PEOPLE CARRYING AROUND THEIR OWN UNCONSCIOUS BODIES I THOUGHT I FIXED THAT BUG FOUR YEARS AGO BLARGHLE

I thiiiiiiink we've ironed out most of the nonbinary gender option bugs, with the exception of the Places Programming weird behaviour (which we'll fix next month, after giving Places programmers time to check that their programs will still work properly after we fix the Check Female Contrivance). We'll be opening the option to existing players soon.

I just spent a sodding hour and a half on the phone with Verizon, and I'd bitch about it but there's little point since everyone already knows that they're shit. The USA desperately needs regulators who aren't afraid to take a chainsaw to enormous corporations like this, cut them into chunks and force competition to happen.

Many people on the Island are experiencing badnavs right now - just wanted to let y'all know I'm on the case.

Folks have been asking for more gender options on Improbable Island for an EMBARRASSINGLY LONG TIME now, I just wanna let y'all know that I've got things almost to the point where I'm ready to DIVE THE FUCK IN AND SORT IT. Expect updates within the next few weeks.

(legacy code is like a window into a much shittier past, where people literally put in checks to ensure that marriage could only happen between people with $sex=1 and people with $sex=0)

((that's LITERALLY MORE WORK))

Look y'all here because I built Mastodon the way I wanted and you happened to like it. If you no longer like it that's your own business, don't give me shit about your failed expectations. There's the door, there's the code, there's the alternatives. The shit I've received today just because I was open to something that a part of the community wanted is completely inacceptable.

Reckon I might do some interface buggery tonight. Shouldn't be a need to have the WHOLE ENTIRE PAGE to refresh every time someone posts a line of chat.
