*opens coat* psst, hey, need some youtube-dl?

I've been engaging in a whole host of delete-my-account battles via email: finally managed to delete my Binance and accounts after literally half a year. Still working on

@protonvpn what's the status on IPv6 support? The only information I can find about it says that it's not supported through the service, which is a pain for those who deal in areas where it is quite prominent.


@kev yeah i should probably do that


Somebody needs to sue the shit out of Binance under GDPR and CCPA for not being able to delete your account and for their email list which you can’t unsubscribe from. It’s the only spam I get by email, and it makes me furious.

Your choices are to sell it to me DRM free and encoded in an open format

Or piracy!

There will be no negotiation on this matter.

@ramob @alexbuzzbee Currently plugin-free actually. Looks something like this:

set number
syntax on
set tabstop=2
set autoindent
set expandtab
set softtabstop=2
set wrap
set showmode
set showcmd
set hlsearch
set incsearch
noremap <Up> <Nop>
noremap <Down> <Nop>
noremap <Left> <Nop>
noremap <Right> <Nop>

I expect this to grow as I get more proficient.

@alexbuzzbee Used to use almost exclusively VSCodium, but I took the time recently to learn and switch fully to vim. Super satisfying to use, dead simple, and fast. Plus it makes you feel really cool, and I’m slowly moving towards a fully terminal-based workflow.

Hey anybody want to tell me what a list is on Mastodon?

@cbush Inform is a really great way to get in to the genre – I'm not super experience with it, but it's NLP and the docs are included with the IDE. Programming in the language is not as fun as some other languages, but the payoff of seeing someone play your game is huge. If you're trying to make a text adventure, definitely the way to go.

@brandon what a great article! I find Inform super draining, so I’ve changed all the colors in the Inform variant to super neon hues to keep me awake. For my terminal theme though, I’ve adopted the “Tomorrow Night Burns” colors – takes some adjusting, but I find it really soothing.

I think people underestimate how much editor colors effect your experience coding. I'm building a text adventure in Inform7 ( for school atm, and basically lost all passion. Then I changed my editor colors to be more vibrant and punchy, and changed the font to Jetbrains Mono, and I've had a massive change in attitude. Equal to or greater than cleaning out your office. If you spend all day in a text editor, make it look nice.

@fosslover2020 @wizzwizz4 MTproto may be made by some PhDs and math people, but I do believe that that’s a downside – they’re encryption is far less secure than that of alternatives (Signal, Matrix, etc). If I’m remembering correctly it’s been broken several times.

I trust Mastodon a whole lot more than other social media, and that means slowly unlearning my hesitance to post. I’ll start: today I got my learner’s permit. I’m really excited to learn to drive, and this was an important step. I still need to do more until it becomes a full license, but those steps aren’t particularly Covid friendly so I’ll stay semi-legal for now. 🥳

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer’s Manual, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids in real mode, and I have over 300 confirmed general protection faults. I am trained in SSE warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire Intel armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this microarchitecture, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the US and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can cache-invalidate you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the x86_64 architecture and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

@Are0h If you were making your own decentralized platform, what would be some steps you would take in order to fix the racism prevalent on social media? I often think about this, and I’m not sure about any methods that could scale, or be decentralized. Ideas?
