Before I go off to celebrate Midsummer by being in bed sick (Swedish woes), I want to share a small update.

#Tusky will keep blocking servers which actively promote fascism. This in particular means Gab.

We will get our next release out just in time for the 4th of July.

Don't even try to debate us about Free Speech. This is our speech, exercising #ANTIFA views. And we will keep doing it :toot:

We will post a bigger update at a later time about what this all really means.

Burning the old fuel in the generator (after siphoning as much as I reasonably could to the gas can, then truck).

Decided to not waste the time/sound/pollution and charge some spare 12v batteries.

I've been informed that the answer to my question is, "Because they've been conditioned to" 😅

Every time I put shampoo in my hair I wonder why this is the one product where everyone accepts a sham instead of insisting on the real thing

"Performance perception: correlation to RUM metrics" by Gilles Dubuc phabricator.wikimedia.org/pham

Wikipedia did a large-scale study of perceived performance, and found that none of the existing web APIs had a strong correlation with how fast or slow users thought the page was. Yikes.

TFW you need to type your passphrase even faster to get it correct.

Muscle memory > cautious typing

The "email your agent" online form for StateFarm forbids "special characters" including exclamation points.

I think they just don't like being yelled at.

Have you ever experienced a greater difficultly in "complete" yawns.

You know the yawns where they really go deep and you kind of shudder? Those.

I've been having a hard time getting all the way there lately.

This isn't a euphemism.

Kilobyte, megabyte, etc imply the existence of millibyte, microbyte, etc as fractional byte units. In this essay I will...

also, yes yes, I should just make my own. But:
* Lemons are expensive ($1/lemon)
* The lemon trees around here are pretty much done for the seasons (and we've forages as much as we could ;) ).
* The 64 oz carton is $3.50.

:/

I think I'm hooked on lemonade.

I can't have most/any "natural flavors" as they're a strong trigger for migraines but I found that the Newman's Own brand is just lemon juice and lemon oil.

I've gone through two 64 ounce cartons of it in the same number of days.
