Having a panic attack at the thought of going back to work after a vacation is totally normal, right?


It's so refreshing to see shows and movies that pass the Bechdel test, such as Glow, Working Moms, Captain Marvel and Orange is the New Black.

Holy shit, women talking to each other about something other than men. Or a cast with more than just a hot token woman with zero lines amongst multiple men. And NOT seeing a stupidly sexualized female superhero. Hurray for actual representation.

The only downside to this is that I'm now highly allergic to dude flicks, making movie nights... difficult.

Also seeing some of the slow-mo shots in the example video, I wonder if that's done at 60fps or 120fps.

Ok, I think I need to start over with my camera search and begin with the requirements. I want to make 4k videos in which I can use slow-motion (60fps), with as little crop factor as possible, budget max โ‚ฌ1000 without lenses.

I guess the alternative is buying something cheaper that can do slow-mo shots at 1080p and shooting the rest at 4k with a wide angle lens?

Example of that I'd like to shoot:

Suggestions are welcome :)

"I'm going to buy a nice DSLR so I can start making FOSS tutorials and fun bouldering videos with friends - how hard can it be to select the perfect camera?"

Mannnnn, after a heavenly week of nonstop baguettes and brie I'm back on low-carb high-proteine intermittent fasting again. RIP bread ๐Ÿ’”

Update. Brother and his gf had a lot of fun and I got to show off. A good day for all of us :)

Back when I was young, there was a strict divide between my brother and I: he was the one good at sports, while I was good at school. Sportswise, I always stood in my brothers shadow (while being very proud of him), so I didn't even try. Until, two years ago, I found bouldering. And got really good at it. Finally, I found my sport!

Today my brother will try out bouldering with us. ๐Ÿ˜Š Mercy will not be shown. I love my brother, but guys seriously

Lately I've been using this awesome #Firefox addon named Temporary Containers.

You can set it on automatic and every time you open a link or a new tab it creates a fresh container for you, then destroys it when your done. This way the fact that every damn site wants to put a cookie on your system doesn't matter anymore.

With sites I want to keep login cookies for, like Mastodon, I just create dedicated containers and have the site always load in them.

Great addon.

Just some info

Who I follow in the fediverse is **not** a reflection of who's ideas I agree with. I generally follow people who make educated, rational, statements and can engage people with a difference of opinion maturely.

Most of the people I follow are people who think very differently than me and I enjoy the mutually respectful discussions that ensue.

Dogs are basically like people the only real difference is that I actually care about them.

My neighbors: โ€œthe city should do more to make this neighborhood look nice.โ€

Congrats to the FastMail folks for helping modernize and secure email comms for the 21st century.

Weโ€™re making email more modern with JMAP

The specifications for JMAP Email have been published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), marking a big victory for email tools now and in the future.

I finally had time to look into Gender Critical . GCF critiques third wave feminism's deconstruction of identity. The central tenet is that โ€œwomen as a biological class are globally oppressed by men as a biological class. It is our biological sex alone that makes us women.โ€ By watering down the definition of biological women (example: trans in feminism), the struggles of adult human females are disregarded.

If I understand this correctly(?), then I disagree. There's room for all of us.

Google, who became the most powerful corporation in the world by selling web ads: Hey in the future every computer program should actually be a website. Don't worry about why, just do it. It'll be cool. We're the vanguard of technology or something

People: ok

People: hey why does this calendar i downloaded have ads in it

Google: Haha cool

Far out, the irony when you click a Masto profile in a notification and read "FOSS-bros can f*** off"... Mastodon's technology is built on AGPL and multiple stepping-stone projects and protocols over many years by FOSS advocates. They suffered years of being ignored and ridiculed before Mastodon grew on what they made. I'll be first in line to critique FS fundamentalism but honestly... a little respect for those whose uncompromising grit gave us the opportunities we have today would be nice.

If you use Firefox or Chrome, we developed an easy way you can help people bypass censorship.

Our Snowflake extension turns your browser into a proxy that connects Tor users in censored regions to the Tor network.
