After the builder and gas engineer left on Thursday, they said they'd get a quote over for the bathroom work. I have half a kitchen ceiling, a hole in my living room ceiling, a cylinder out the back garden, a dodgy bathroom floor risking giving way. Did they get the quote? No. The builder turned up, told him I'm doing nothing till I get the quote. In the meantime, the house is a wreck.

Just watched part of a YouTube vid about a Chernobyl survivor who ended up getting bullied in her school, and I'm looking at her bullying thinking, "I would've wished mine was only that bad".

It's really weird how shit from our childhood distorts our sense of perspective, this woman survived Chernobyl ffs. How my brain can dick measure I just can't understand.

mastodon is a scam invented by cloud companies to sell more servers

Oh that's odd. There's no source!

Well folks, if you actually verify any of the bullshit these guys are selling, you'll find what you have is:

1. A closed source backend
2. A closed source web frontend
3. An open sourced mobile client
4. No way to independently verify that the build matches the code.

For something touting itself as an open source privacy company, that's pretty shitty.

Oh no, of course. That would be silly. There's only one repo which is for the ios and android clients.

Maybe it's inside?

Note that I highlighted their use of "Open Source". Ok, lets take a look at the repo... wait, there's no link.

Oh well, how about their Github account at - perhaps that has the code?

Yet more openwashing from Tutanota. Now they've launched an "Open Source" competitor to SecureDrop.

Of course it's tied into their mail product, so you have to use their services to be able to use this.

I just use the mobile site as a mobile app via a bookmark on my home screen and it works beautifully that way.

The Wifi64 expansions arrived. These will (hopefully) provide access to the JuicyHQ BBS from the C64 terminals we'll have at the event.

Unpopular opinion: competitive events that exclude based on immutable attributes unconnected to performance devalue event outcomes compared to non-exclusionary events.

Messing around with T-Shirt designs. Top is left breast, bottom goes on the back (full width).

Just dropped some serious cash on two Commodore 64s, a pair of wifi modems, a pair of sd2iec+ drives and a couple of monitors for 's themed Alternate Reality Game.

A few months ago, Microsoft decided to collaborate with Google and drop its web engine in favor of Google's.

Earlier this week, Google blocked all ad blockers, and now Microsoft has de-listed UBlock Origin (a powerful ad-blocker). Without real choice, monopolies will dictate what you see and do on the Internet.

Real choice comes with Free/Open Source Software.

Warsaw is bae. Just wish my legs weren't on fire and everything wasnt stiff

Cursive English is dying but that's even more a reason for you to learn how to use it:

If they can't write in it, it's harder for them to fake your signature :blobcatinnocent:
