Just received my first event invite for 2020. I guess we do live in the future, after all...

@Tusky thanks for the app! I just noticed that when I mute/block someone, their existing toots in my timeline don't go away. It would be nice to apply the block action to the current view too!

Is there are comprehensive list of "dark patterns" in #firefox? I'm disabling as much as I can but it would be handy to have when setting up a fresh system.

The OnePlus 6T is pretty nice, for the most part it's much nicer (less creepy googleness) than any android since the G1. Just two super annoying bugs/missing features

1. The SMS app prevents entering more than 100 (!?!?) characters. Wtf. It's called Messages but I haven't figured out what the actual app name is yet, they sure do go to great lengths to hide the com.android.blah names nowadays

2. The Night Mode feature doesn't turn on and off automatically based on sunset/sunrise, it works ok if you manually toggle it (and the UI says it will activate/deactivate) but you have to do so each morning and evening. This is the subject of quite many forum posts ...

I'm a moderate about banning cars in that I am okay if we do it incrementally by internalizing all their externalized costs and deprioritizinlg them so hard that other modes are naturally more desirable.

:bancars:

I shoulda known better than to let the latest episode of the embassy shitshow draw me back onto birdsite.

Talk to your kids about capitalism, before someone else does

I had a really nice day today! The difficult group project at work is back on track due to hard work by others, I shipped a bunch of code and closed some tickets, and in a meeting yesterday I offhandedly mentioned that I finished a thing and started talking about the next thing and M said "wait. Back up. Wasn't that going to be super hard, not sure we'll ever get it working, and now you just breeze past like it's no big thing? Congrats!" And that was nice to have recognized. And I have a plan for the next thing and all the support I need to get it done, and I get to learn a bunch of stuff that I'm curious about.
Then I got home and K was in a super good mood and showing how he can sit up by himself now, and now he's asleep on me after finishing his nighttime bottle, and all is right in the world.

You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.

Put the channel's username in this address:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.

For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?c
