What nerd do I have to talk to to get the Fortean Times on Microfilm?


I've always been a maintenance and monitoring activist, meaning that I regularly quit coffee and alcohol for months at a time, and if anything goes wrong I look at options

It makes being an addict very manageable, but also very strange
I also do this but for alcohol and weed.

Coffee and tobacco stay permanently :)


I do not want Live Action versions of animated shows...

the initial push for the internet came from the state and from academia. but the market innovated such now-ubiquitous features as 'every page taking forever to load' and 'half of it going down for no reason'


I wish I had a cellphone where I could use the GPS without signing a devil's bargain with an evil Megacorporation

I use it for maps, but it's just like, Google collects GPS tracks if you leave it on, and I really want cool GPS features like AR games or location based alarms, it would be awesome

French police wear vests that say PSIG, short for Pisspig


gotta love the ambiguity of the English language.
It's a really quality naming scheme isn't it!



Oh no! There's a Leverage Spanish Flu episode

It's also pro killing people randomly because terrorism

I am very sad, this is well below Leverage's normal goodness

good question, i think so, starting to try in July maybe? we've definitely talked about it a bit.
Ok, sure, based on your things thought you might be in the process, but legit

I hope it goes well, and I hope you're going well

Retweet this if you think that this man should stop spending public money on fancy lawyers to fight Indigenous children and residential "school" survivors in court.

We see you, @JustinTrudeau.

New DiCa and new phone letting me get notifications from friendica automatically and not pull
*success*

This has always been a barrier to weekend and evening Fediversing

Thanks!
This could have been fixed a long time ago, and is also likelg the fault of my phones being used by me, not the software

But I always use the different apps each time I start a new phone, and this time was good



This email makes me violent

This came to my inbox. This is called ignorance. Yes, the state is responsible. The parents fought for their children/were arrested or food rations cut if they refused to let their kids go. There was no choice! Some hid their kids 🙏🏾 Let’s not be like this. Truth & Reckoning!


I feel like you have to be willfully ignorant to be this clueless... like, how tf did they not have ANY clue that it wasn't a choice...


I am the kind of nerd whose two year old says "prop plane" and "jet plane" and is right half the time


I saw an ad for OnlyFans which emphasised non-adult content
This is about to get really bad

This is bonkers exciting

As someone said, two kids is ten times harder than one; while three kids is only slightly harder than two.
Yeah, my mom said that, and my elder son definitely agrees

@HippyWizard Gotta beware the evil day star after all


Good thread, but it always worries me when the best is too yet to come, make sure to allow the best to come

(Quinn is entirely correct, just saying more words about an adjacent thing)

A good chat with @DevP this morning about character backstories brings up what I feel should be the guiding principle for any character backstory:

The best should be yet to come.

@DevP



if this doesn't make someone wanna watch deep space nine then i don't know what would

Spotify's Algorithm is at the point that I actually don't recognize half the songs on my "on repeat" playlist

@Becky@convenient.email can we finally get off this thing?

@HippyWizard @FireflyLeigh I’ve joked that a person’s Spotify listen history says less about their music taste and more about their ability to resist Spotify’s algorithm



Switching from holding a 2 year old to a one day old and back makes the 2 year old seem much bigger
@BobJonkman I had two children
One was 1 day old
One was 2 years old

And I was carrying them both a lot - and holy shit did they seem different in weight!

I no longer have a one day old child though
@HippyWizard You misplaced it already??

(srsly, congrats!)



Ok, Rowan is being born within the next four days due to modern science
Shæ just turned two

This means, I am about 4-5 years before I can start bulk buying lego
@HippyWizard It's going to be so epic. You going to get Duplos in the meantime?
@awkwardlefty_cj We have a megabloks bin he can swim in, and a bunch of other duplo! Oh yeah!

Very excited!
So you're part of reason why I always find a bunch of awful Mega Bloks parts in the LEGO bins I get off Craigslist!
These are the bigger-than-duplo megabloks, and Becky bought them on kijiji
Thanks, I appreciate it, but you really didn't have to justify yourself, I'm the one with the unhealthy obsession for LEGO-brand bricks. 😅
It's true, I am definitely unwilling to become obsessed with brands
@HippyWizard You’re 4-5 years before the bairns can know about the lego. You can begin stockpiling any time


Baby induction happening on my Birthday! The doctor thinks that this means the baby will be born the next day. But last time the doctor was off by ~24 hours
@silverwizard Well two of my kids have not contacted me in 12 years, one of them is still living at home at 31, only one has really applied himself AND stays in contact. They might be doing their own thing but could be a bit more communicative.
Yeah, it's been a hell of a 31 years hasn't it.


Deliveries Before the Pandemic: Get a note saying "Sorry we left you" and then need to drive an hour to the nearest depot
Deliveries During the Pandemic: Packages appear on my steps, with the doorbell rung as quietly as possible

I don't wanna go back!


The Monty Hall problems makes me real mad - I understand the math, but damn does it annoy me that it works in the real world


Honestly, the only real reason I've ever wanted a 3D printer is cases for my weird fuckin' devices built out of SOCs


My son loves to get in things, so I taught him how to touch the oven with the back of his hand before he touched it

He now does this for everything he thinks might be hot, and I am very proud of that ability to extrapolate

Anyone remember the buffer bloat presentation? Anyone else hear about self-healing infrastructure?

I wonder why these thoughts are related
Don't have too many active fault detection systems, it's gonna cause huge issues


Coworker keeps saying it was DNS. I am fairly certain it was not DNS.
Argument For: DNS was being weird and the DNS service was having trouble, also, the Haiku
Argument Against: domains were resolving, including the one domain we cared about


Wait - I've never seen Leverage Season 5?
Wait - what? Oh shit - free new Leverage
