As of #Mastodon 3.4, new users no longer automatically follow admins. This is fine except that I have always used that as a lazy way to keep track of new regos as they happened.

Lazyweb: Is it even possible to get Advantix film re-developed anymore?

Marie Kondoing my way through stacks of old photographs and god damn this is hard.

Colpipe breach 

Look, while this article is mostly right, that Pipeline shutdown happened due to the fear of not making a profit, not the ransomware itself. Don’t forget that as bad as this whole situation is, the pipeline itself was actually functional, but they shut it down because their billing system was offline.
