just caught up on my listening requests. seriously, people, you have to let me know, 'cause i'll never notice otherwise! (and sorry, everyone i just accepted requests from, for the delay)
not that i get many follower requests anyway, but if you do put one in and i haven't noticed it for about 24 hours, @ me; ive heard they don't pop up as notifications (strange design decision, that) and i won't remember to check...
plurality, selfies, total body dysphoria Show more
i'll say it now - hell will freeze over before i ever post a selfie
not because i think i'm so hideously unattractive or whatever
just because the attractiveness or otherwise of the person whose image you would all see in that selfie is moot - because *that's not what i look like*
(on any level, for any value of 'i')
ah, we're at the "tearing up at everything" stage of increasing emotional lability.
*straps in for the ride*
brexit, one of these things is not like the others Show more
i guess this is where we are now, as a nation - this story was given the same weight on the Graun's front page as all the serious documentation of a government in collapse:
so zdnet, you want me to enable third party cookies in my browser so that all the third parties you invite onto your web pages can store the permissions cookies that tell them to stop sending me third party cookies...?
i... don't think so. seems the long way around, somehow.

every time i do an online shop i think i should be stockpiling... and then the shutters come down on my brain and i'm like, "nope. not doing."
if i'm very very lucky (as i was just now) it's only the stockpiling i end up not doing, rather than the shopping at all...
one of these days, though, i'm just going to find myself with nothing to eat and unable to do any kind of food shopping at all
would apple have had the market all to themselves, or would CP/M machines have grown up to absorb the slack... would we all be running CP/M X on processors still capable of natively executing the Z80 instruction set? ;-) or would the profusion of architectures finally have settled down once ARM was liberated from Acorn, as everyone standardised on ARMs for everything (instead of "everything but PCs")?
today's curiosity: what would the computing world of today look like if IBM had decided to stick with mainframes and niche markets?

is may seriously proposing to look-what-you-made-me-do the country into a no-deal brexit? what's she thinking, that if she can't save her party she'll destroy her country?
how is this materially different from the end of babylon 5, season 4? just because the missiles she's pointing at us are economic, rather than ballistic...
Stop being nasty to your friends as "banter", who is that toxic shit even for?
Everything about Brexit goes behind a CW! Show more
Right, I need to stop clicking on Brexit CWs because even ten minutes of talking about it is worsening my already-ridiculous anxiety.
And we all need to make sure we CW everything about Brexit, yes even nice things like how many signatures the petition has.
ukpol, petition, ddos? Show more
and now it's 502ing, which means that even the static server sending out "we're down for maintenance" pages has been overwhelmed...
given the efforts of russian troll farms in getting brexit this far in the first place, i half-suspect shenanigans
lb: or everyone getting into work at 9am tried to sign it at once ;-)
We broke the petition website, folks. XD
