Pinned toot

I guess its finally time for an .

I am Eurritimia, or just Eurritz / Ritz for friends, and I'm your local 🍍. I like Pokémon, The Sims, drawing, pineapples, pizza, making games and chiptune music. Also I'm aromantic asexual agender and I have a queerplatonic relationship with a person who is not here on Mastodon unfortunately.

If there's a need for 🍍, you can mention me - btw I don't eat pineapples at all, nor even on pizza but I don't condemn who does it.

how many web browsers have to operate with Chromium at the core before we can use the word 'monopoly'

(yes yes Mozilla etc. etc., Google's funding the one not-IE browser it cares about, I get it -- but why are we trusting Google's code)

(why are we trusting Google at all)

anyway interested in browser recs, currently using Opera b/c it suits me but ideally I'd like to decouple all my browsing from Google's code

(and I'm 100% uninterested in a tech debatesturbation session about Mozilla thx)

Princess Toadstool:

1. Monarch of Mushroom Kingdom, but not a mushroom person.

2. Apparent monarch, but princess rather than queen?

3. Frequently abducted, effectively out of power at those intervals.

4. Toad and other mushroom people generally primary sources of information on abduction and rescue efforts.

5. Toadstool. Toad-stool? No, Toad's tool.

The princess is a paper monarch, Toad is the de facto ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom, has her "kidnapped" to get state business accomplished.

Pro tip: the best way to prevent Google from scanning your emails is to stop using Gmail and then convince everyone you know to also stop using Gmail.

Have just found out about a pretty good site called Does The Dog Die? that lists the content notes in a lot of films, books, videogames and TV shows.

It's not complete by any means and misses out on a lot of content warnings people may need but I think it's worth checking out if that's something you'd find helpful.

RIP my arm.

Image is of a person on a bed with their arm bent by their side and a large calico cat covering their elbow and a medium singapura cat covering their forearm who are licking each other’s faces.

Every other day, there is a small debate about content warnings. In the following, have a very biased overview of everything I've read so far. :P

Pros of using them generously:
β€’ More thinking about the own content by the author
β€’ More thinking about what and what not to engage with by the follower
β€’ Easier scrolling by for triggers, non-interests & too-long reads
β€’ No cluttering of timelines due to lengthy conversations about niche/upsetting subjects

Cons:
β€’ "It's annoying"
β€’ "It feels wrong"

"Ever wonder why your phone needs 30 to 60 seconds to boot? Why can’t it boot, say, in one second?" there is not a single day i dont think about this

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.
