Pinned toot

Account is locked so that I can manually check if you are human or spambots.

This also acts as a protection for my follower-toots.

That being said, I generally approve everyone as long as you are not "Spam spam spam spam! Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!" type profile and have few human-like toots.

Actually, since August, Seoul and Gyeonggi-do has 'mask required' order โ€” yup, you need to cover your face with mask or you get fines.

Look at the mask use. I was in Korea when this thing kicked off and this was my normal youtu.be/lqj7l0Xk0Ho

Coming back to the USA and watching us stand maskless on the train tracks yelling โ€œtracks have nothing to do with where trains go!โ€ as the light kept getting closer and brighter was one of the most infuriating experiences of my life. Now theyโ€™ve beaten 3 nearly impossible-to-beat outbreaks and weโ€™re spiraling down the drain

S Korea regulation allows ISPs to charge both side of internet connection โ€” in non-technical word, when you send a letter, you pay for postage, and when the recipient get the letter, they ALSO pay for the postage. Simply ripping off everybody.

Wondering how it would work on non-latin (i. e. Korean) setupโ€ฆ you don't allow Hangul in handles :-p

twitter, my research, light anti-disinformation work 

I finally wrote up something explaining that Twitter has not allowed people to pick usernames during signup for almost 3 years now, and that a "jsmith12345678" username pretty much just means you're dealing with a not super technically savvy social media literate person.

mstdn.io is not loading the toot I made at external instance for at least few mins... hmm

Hello Germany,

We did that, (actually our court approved anti-gov rallies) and our case number literally SKYROCKETED.

Prepare for the worst (._.

Other solution: Get a proper national healthcare ~_~

Installed F-droid, found out there is no option to change app interface language (other than the OS language), removed.

I require it because the translation quality was SOOOOOOOOOOO poor. (And no, I am not interested in fixing the translation, there is WAY TOO MUCH to fix)

Most annoying part of docs.joinmastodon.org

The length of 'list of pages'. I had to take 9 screenshots to combine into this screenshot.

Is it Dynamic Currency Conversion? Seriously, what the fuck is going on @ nextDNS?

Election next week 

General election is coming soon (next Wed) even as we fight against COVID-19, and time to vote (absentee). D'oh.
