Wound up having to reinstall since sfc didn't work both on what was left working on the system and on the install CD repair tools

so i had the audacity to leave my windows vm running overnight and it has punished me by trashing its own system files

those “haha I’m immune to telepaths because I’m always thinking about X” jokes are less funny when you’re psychic, and everyone else in the house has to deal with your low-grade radiation of bass-boosted Sonic Adventure 2 music

y'know

thinking about the times furaffinity is down, and every time they say it's due to a DDoS, and they have cloudflare in front of the site, it tells me one of two things: either the folks running the site are covering up for programming issues and being opaque about it, or cloudflare is actually not all that effective at preventing DDoS attacks

We received 590 responses from 46 states and 8 Canadian provinces. (No responses from any outlying American commonwealths, unfortunately!) While I realize that wasn't an intensely big sample size, I figured it'd be big enough to give us some clear-cut results. I Was Wrong!

venting about activitypub, furry tf mention, genie 

genie: you have found my lamp and freed me from captivity. as a way of saying thanks before i depart, i will give you one wish.
me: oh, you sure? thank you! as for the wish, well... i'd kinda like to be a shiny mew, maybe with reality-bending powers with a glitchy aesthetic...
genie: O-oh, uh... I'm sorry, but that's really way too powerful, I can't in good conscience grant that wish. You've gotta wish for something else.
me: Alright, in that case, I kinda wanted a FOSS ActivityPub-compatible server that's securely implemented, with extensive, complete documentation available in english and other major languages, an approachable user interface, extensive but not problematic customizability on the front and back-end, that can run on a budget VPS, and without serious controversy surrounding it or a BDFL maintaining the source code
genie: ...Right, so what did you want your moveset to be? Mew can learn any move, you know, and I'm sure you could glitch a few new ones into existence, too.

misinformation, bus 

'the bus is late (waiting for the bus in the rain)' and 'we like to party (the vengabus)' are about the same bus from different perspectives but neither of them know it yet

food, delivery apps 

god, i ordered something through doordash and then proceeded to go down a rabbit hole, realizing that what i ordered from isn't technically a restaurant, but rather is a digital restaurant of sorts where food is made from another restaurant's kitchen and then delivered exclusively through doordash

i honestly don't know what to make of this discovery.

Meta 

I can't remember who it was, but I saw a couple people misgender red today and I want to call that shit out. We're better than that, validation of gender is not a privilege that we take away from someone when they're no longer in our good graces.

fucked up how Alan Turing, Computer Daddy, would've fit in around here

apparently he wouldn't shut up about how gay he was, and mentioned it in casual conversation

in 1936 he invented a computer that, get this, can do everything any computer built since then could do. everything. yes, it can mine bitcoin. yes, it can run Doom. it could run all of Amazon's backend. just very slowly, of course.

Computer Daddy was hella gay

content warning thoughts, self 

i swear i put content warnings on the most benign things ever

there are people that complain about putting them on anything and meanwhile you'll catch me putting one up that says "may contain words"

🎹 Free piano (you move) Greater Boston, boosts+ 

Anyone in greater Boston looking for a free piano? Friend of a friend has a Baldwin upright that has been well cared for, but is looking to get rid of it ASAP. Probably going to be junked if they can't find a taker. 🎹

If you're interested let me know and I'll see if I can make the appropriate connections
