and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus snarkboost or absurdo or esoterica, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-shitposting ...

... were getting ready to perform a little of the old ingroup-outgroup, ingroup-outgroup on a weepy young devotchka they had there...

My lawyers are collecting a database of usernames that infringe my shitposting patent; pay your royalties now - isn't peace of mind worth it?

Just 500 satoshis per shitpost to 1CGkmyCH9AzJEhzxg4irkHWT8AY5S95E5N and we're even.

Chrome to implement an adblocker

Kind of a dilution of the term, though - what they're essentially doing here is blocking -other- people's ads that are "below the standard" - e.g. the ads that cause most people to install adblockers - while leaving their own alone.

An instance where only one account is authorized to post at a time, all others are read-only, and you have to book time slots in advance on a blind calendar (free/taken only, no names)

A mythical instance rumored to be running on an Apple Lisa that can only federate after One Pure User logs on at the console for the first time.

I really need to spend more time here. More signal less noise it would appear.

So, it looks like some of your gents/ladies have accounts now on two instances. Do I have to/should I follow both or......?

I was among those affected by the layoffs at Cylance, and so am now looking for work. I've been working on my OSCP, and am searching for either a junior penetration testing position, or a blue team position, in NYC or remote.

If I don't find work by the end of the month, I may be open to relocation, but for now, I'm trying to stay in the city. If you know of anyone hiring in my area that you'd recommend working for, please drop me a line here or on Twitter.

So one missile strike and that's all anyone is talking about. Manafort, nope. Stone, nope. Just reflections on how "presidential" his Orangeness is.


So, thanks to @Mudge's birdsite post I now have a huge list of ideas of varying degree of nastiness.

For example using the EICAR test string to protect this post and thereby rendering it unreadable behind all those SSL MITM company proxies!

You know what the -really- nice part about mastodon is?

All the resources load from the same A record. There is only one DNS lookup required to access a mastodon site.

This matters a lot, and it's something that a lot of websites get horribly wrong.

News/political nonsense 

So hey, look at that - proxy war with Russia in the middle east to distract from a failing domestic administration. Faaaaantastic.

Good morning! Background processing queues on this instance cleared up a little, but still haven't caught up with real-time. Going to continue working on increasing the performance of background tasks to increase the number of toots per minute that can be processed without delay.

Sorry for the silliness. The activity is simply more than 4x of previous peaks.

In other news, yesterday I finally fixed the mastodon bridge tool.

Okay, so effectively we have no Secretary of State. Re yesterdays DPRK missile launch the readout apparently is "we've already talked about NK enough. No further comment"

Maybe it's just ME, but does this strike any of you as incomprehensibly reckless? I mean, wtf, wtaf.

Dearly beloved,
we are gathered here today to get through this thing called


'lectronic word, life, it means forever
and that's a mighty long time
but I'm here to tell you
there's something else

the fediverse

a world of neverending happiness
you can always see a toot


If you ban memes then the kids will just get memes on the streets, and the only people who benefit are illegal meme dealers and suppliers.

@taotetek @datawench As I stated recently in another context, lately the internet is that scene in a Western where two gunfighters are squaring off in main street and everyone else is hiding under a table in the saloon

I think best case scenario is if all my e-friends migrate here, and twitter is left just for trolling celebrities and journos.
