Gonna clean up some of my furry follows on here. If you haven't already, go follow @x6herbius!

Winamp was a thing for you in the past?

Corporate media now bringing it back to the spotlight after a new release some time back.

BUT: Winamp is proprietary, never mind the memories;

There's a train station in our general area called "Ifield", which implies the next station down is called "FieldImpl : public Ifield" and is entirely concrete.

Hammer seems to work pretty much flawlessly on Ubuntu through Wine. This is even better than on my MacBook.

Hmm, if you specify a profile banner image that's large (I just used one of my own photos which was 14MB), it causes a server error when you save the changes.

I'm gonna move my furry ramblings to @x6herbius. I think I'll still keep this account around, but as a more general-purpose one.

Costa, there's no point publicly signposting your toilets and then having them locked with a staff code.

OK nerds, has anyone managed to get their hands on the Huawei MateBook Pro X laptop and have a play? I'm looking into MacBook alternatives (because Apple seem determined to close off their entire ecosystem one protocol at a time), and it's a toss-up between that and the Dell XPS.

My computer had better damn well run fully-featured "applications", that's the entire point.

I kind of dislike this trend of calling everything an "app" just because it's a more fashionable word. An "app" to me is just a cut-down version of a fully-featured application that's been scaled down for a mobile interface.

I just had a brilliant idea. I want to improve my French, so I'm gonna join a French instance with the objective of posting only in French.

Anyway, I'm going on too much. I'mma play some games.

A philosophy I've held for as long as I can remember is "Give people the benefit of the doubt unless you have reason not to." I want to do more of that, but it helps to be in an environment that is conducive to it. You can't form good relationships unless you can trust someone to have sincere intentions behind what they say.

Masto feels a lot more like your own personal friend group. There's something to be said for listening to alternative viewpoints (not that Twitter necessarily helps that anyway), but also a lot to be said for actually surrounding yourself with people who are actually trying to be nice to you? People who will be kind anyway, instead of being in an "I don't owe you jack" mentality all the time.
