"ooh, big stretch!" i say as my cat makes incorrect inferences

Q: Why did the project manager reject that design with supercapacitors?

A: They charge too much.

remember to not be a dick because you have more tech literacy than other people

don’t be mean to scam victims

don’t be mean to people who got phished

don’t be mean to people who got viruses from “free vbucks” websites

instead, TEACH THEM about common scam tactics instead of judging them for being “dumb” ( or just say nothing at all ). shaming scam victims only helps the scammers

I wonder if I will ever again in my life use a piece of technology because I actively like it and not just because it was the only thing left after I boycotted literally all of its competitors

If you hate Windows, simply switch to Linux so you can hate Linux instead

I work at a ccTLD (.IS), and lately we are seeing a *lot* of new accounts immediately registering multiple domains that all had been registered in the past. I suspect we're not the only ccTLD that sees this.

We know of at least two instances of this being used to take over social media accounts that had e-mails in expired domains set as backup e-mail addresses.

This seems to be organized and well-resourced.

Please double-check you don't use e-mails in any expired domains anywhere.

I MADE THE GREAT BELL PEPPER DEBATE INTO AN ACE ATTORNEY VIDEO

Had an interesting start to a conversation yesterday about Mastodon servers, and the driving philosophy under them.

And how you're either aiming to create a service or a community, and how these actually have different motivations and requirements.

And I thought that was interesting.

Hey friends!

With the recent massively important #USPol leak, it's extra-important to make sure you CW your uspol toots. A lot of people are going to be very stressed out right now and will very much appreciate not seeing more.

realizing that GPU-rendered terminal emulators are so many levels of “you gave a teletype anxiety”

OK who can help take Matt Mullenweg up on his offer to bring #Tumblr up to full #indieweb standards? cc: @humanetech

@jrenken

“卖安利”means strongly recommending sth in mandarin. And “大会” means a big meeting or a event

Because a main sns platform in china called Weibo recently starts to show its users’ ip in public without permission and users can’t cancel that. Then a lot of users decided to leave Weibo, and we seize the chance to “卖安利” recommend mastodon to them XD

And his guess was spot on! Based on that idea, a little bit more focused searching found an article confirming "卖安利" (selling Amway) is a colloquialism for making a pitch on social media.
