Cool, now I have Midland Credit Management bugging me, and now they're calling my dad. You know, the place that cold calls you, then asks you to hand them the numbers of your debit card, bank account, and routing number, to cement the deal where you pay off the full amount at $50/mo for the next 10 years.

Chrome developer saying they canโ€™t reproduce a bug they introduced on elementary OS (and presumably any desktop with a close button on the left) because they couldnโ€™t reproduce it on โ€œLinux 18.04โ€ shows how much Google understands and cares about desktop Linux.

Hint: they donโ€™t.

It just occurred to me that I have sort of assumed everyone in the world had heard of 100 Demon Dialogues and I may be wrong.

It was Lucy Bellwood's 100-day project awhile back, a conversation between her and her Inner Critic. It became a book but all the comics are online at and every creative person (so, everyone) should at least read it, if not buy the book, because every single frame is RELATABLE.

Poor freedom of speech. Its meaning has taken such a drubbing in the last few years.

I mean, originally, it was just "the government can't tell you what you can and can't say".

Then someone decided it meant "what you say should never have any consequences".

Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can deny you a soapbox".

Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can refuse to listen to you."

Now apparently it means "every program that could possibly access my soapbox MUST do so."

yellin' about video games, caps 

I think somebody enjoys fucking around with my local Google location data on behalf of our local neighborhood. I'm near UCR in Riverside, CA. It used to call my area "ใƒฆใƒ‹ใƒใƒผใ‚ทใƒ†ใ‚ฃใƒผ". Now it calls it "ะฎะฝะธะฒะตั€ัะธั‚ะธ".

Guess nobody else noticed that Snouts dot Online was not so Online for a while?

lmao DMA over USB is coming soon
this will cause 0 problems, guaranteed

ruminating, abuse (-) 

EAC Linux support has been "paused" and I have also heard that the effort to get wine/proton support established has halted.

I think I'm done giving Epic the benefit of the doubt.

Hot take: I never find a reason to not spread my own responses into other people's public posts. If you don't like that, there's a mute feature in this great thing.

Good news, everyone! We're killing God! I'm so proud of y'all right now. ๐Ÿ’š We just gotta be a good JRPG party and finish the job. ๐Ÿ’š We'll beat that boss fight in no time.

@Ace I'm sorry for asking this, I didn't realize it was both an instance admin's requirement to verify their instance first, and that Mastodon 2.8 was the first version to allow stuffing the verification JSON file in the place where Keybase can verify it for the whole instance before any users can post usable proofs. I'll resume whatever I was doing elsewhere instead of bugging you about this. :D

@Ace Was there something involved with getting approved for listing with Keybase that Snouts has rejected, or is there any particular reason this instance isn't supported for proofs? I should probably ask the Keybase people about it before I ask you, but eh, I figure I'll send this second. First line was asking a Keybase channel.
