Alright, fuck it let's do this. If you got a patreon, ko-fi, liberapay or whatever, reply with it and I will boost. Cannot promise donations, but I will use what reach I have to help if I can. Let's actually build that support network I was talking about earlier.

I encourage others to boost this status and all the posts that end up beneath it to get as wide a spread as possible.

Not sure if this will even work, but I feel like I should at least try.

Politics, political philosophy? 

guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?

who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked

me: windows is terrible and you should never use it
people who use windows: haha yeah *boost*

Nobody really asked, but I'm currently running a dual boot setup between Windows 10 Pro and Arch Linux, and I have a Windows Dev VM (10 Pro) that lives in a 128GB VHD image on the Windows native drive, and I intend to switch the Windows side over to VirtualBox, in sync with what I use in Linux now, so I can develop from either OS. I mainly dev from a VM because MSVC debugging with GDI related mutexes locking up the user session is a real shitshow even today. WinDBG supposedly doesn't do this.

Emoji 20th anniversary, important thing to talk about but it's not pleasant. 

wild how epic games gives a shit about open source only when it shuts down competitors and not when it comes to developing games for Linux

Wtf. I just read the ingredients list, it does contain alcohol.

What the hell? Opened a fresh bottle of Dial Complete Pearl Essence foaming soap, and it’s different now. And not in a good way. It goes flat in my hands almost immediately, and smells strongly of alcohol.

Uhh, Gnome? Are you really supposed to be putting my machine to sleep the instant I log out of my desktop?

I just realized why Telegram Desktop doesn't have the video decoding glitches that macOS and Linux have on odd widths of H.264 videos and "GIF"s... it doesn't appear to support hardware decoding at all on Windows.

Yay, I finally beat FEZ. What a trip. Maybe some day, I'll even try to get all 64 cubes.

Incredibly cursed error message that I just got on a work PC trying to launch Task Manager:

"Too many files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of the FILES command in your Config.sys file.", that message is pretty cursed on its own (Task Manager is not 16-bit and should not be affected by 16-bit open files limitations), but this is 64-bit Windows 10.

Which doesn't even support 16-bit applications.

Here's just one example of how Sonic Adventure DX completely wrecked the original lighting engine from the Dreamcast version. The floor texture is actually meant to be light shining from the grating on the ceiling, rather than a grating in itself.

In the remakes, the ray of light from the ceiling is just plain gone, and the floor texture uses an improper blending mode that causes it to look incorrect.

Dear Mastodon: Please implement a volume control in your HTML5 video player's controls. It really bothers me that I only have a choice between Deafening and Muted.

People need to push back against outright bans on sexual content or every gain the sexual revolution has made will be undone
