"I can tell by your red power light that you’re into me."

"You look like a thing and I love you."

"Can I see your parts list?"

These are too good to be only used for flirting with robots.

I feel like it's time to ditch XMPP. I really wanted it to work, I was rooting for it for years, but I still can't honestly recommend it to my non-tech friends. It's like the designers always include a weird masochistic deal-breaker in the specs, making it more complicated to do simple stuff.

@takao @feld with 16 of that being overtime rate, of course

@takao @feld yeah, and if they claim to own him 24/7, I guess he can also bill 24/7

Google: hey, we've decided that we will move your personal info into a different country, which also means your relationship with us will be governed by different laws. It is purely a coincidence that this will relieve us of the GDPR responsibilities. Also, we made this decision based on tracking your physical location, which is what you explicitly disabled in your profile. To change your country back, simply find the instructions in our million pages of Terms&Conditions, no link, sorry...

that was exactly my first thought. It seems like one mitm proxy per household, that fixes all of these modern atrocities is the only realistic way forward

@rune 2020 was an apocalypse for comedy writers. They wanted to make satire, but it turned out it was a documentary.

@aspie4K @lucifargundam maybe that's why it is such a hard market to break ino: because even people who love the project and want it to succeed always find a minor nitpick and refuse to support. It's not a daily driver anyway, those $150 are more like a donation and "put your money where your mouth is" kind of thing. Better specs will come only after this initial phase is done and it will be done if there are people supporting it. It's quite straightforward really...

In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.

Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.

An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg

You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here:

@aspie4K @lucifargundam you can support the effort by buying the current one too...
