So what was the deal with capitalism anyway? That was pretty fucken shit, ey. Remember jobs—remember when you had to, fucken, sell your labour just so you could eat? And like, your bosses got richer off it but then when you couldn't afford to buy a house they blamed bloody eating avo on toast? I mean, faaaaaark, glad that's all over, y'know?

Sad about the climate now but

uber but it's a cooperative driver federation coordinated by libre software and open protocols

Watch out boy, she'll snoot you up

Oooohhh here she comes

The earth experiences "seasonal lag", where the hottest part of summer and coldest part of winter are well after their middle. The earth is forever lagging behind its circumstances.

I experience annual lag. I am forever lagging behind my circumstances and the age I am now. I don't feel it yet.

Also, my hottest part is definitely not my middle.

Can we please fast-forward to the world where people look at "the free market" the same way they do "the four humors"

the reason you need to CW your nudes and porn isn't because someone might be at work. it's because someone might not want to see nudes or porn.

I watched the movie Bar Bahar (In Between is the English title) tonight and I feel like it is relevant mastodon content. It could be summed up as "modern Palestinian women realise men are rubbish and proceed not to take any of their shit". It also has a cute gay couple.

(cw: rape scene, though. Sorry if, because of that, I should've put the whole thing behind a cw. Wasn't sure.)

I think I'd like to move off mastodon.social sometime but I don't know where to go and it all seems like a lot of effort

@joshsharp ive been scouring this space (not web apps, but todo lists) extensively and one that peaked my eye is usevolition.com/

it's more than just a todo list, and i like the workfow, but I'm too committed to non-web solutions personally.

Because I'm trying to make an open source todo list/task management web app, I had a look around today for what else exists in this space. I was surprised that I couldn't find much at all beyond simple "let's make a todo list app" examples. Do any folks here have anything open source and web-based (or web API plus other client) they use regularly?

I had an idea of something to do in my Rust project today, and I did it, and it worked first time. Incredible. I think I'm finally at the level of "productive beginner" instead of "flailing beginner".

If my motivation to work on anything at all could come back, that'd be good.

well, having customers in Australia or using Australian software just became a huge liability for every software company in the world, so thanks a lot for waving through that kick in the teeth, Labor

It still sucks that they're our paying customers and we need to ask them for money to survive, though.

We sent out the yearly user survey for one of our apps today and, even though I haven't been feeling it lately, it makes me feel nice that a lot of people made the effort to say thanks for our work and tell us how much they appreciate it. I'd recommend it if you get the chance.

Just realised: with the purging of adult content based on US moral standards, corporations controlling huge swathes of user content and the decline of the number of browser engines.

The WWW is becoming AOL.
