I tend to read the timeline chronologically, not reverse chronologically. I don't get why this is a hard thing to do in the web interface and most clients. #mastodev
Multiplayer RPG discussion, but #EliteDangerous in particular:
Good: Recognizing people might play a slow burn game idly while at work with that interrupting.
Better: Minimizing and muting the game automatically when this comes up.
Worst: Doing this at all times even in multimonitor scenarios where it'd be really fucking handy, even as a configurable option, to assume the only reason you'd switch out is because you need a break.
blocking ads is evil grr
HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.
Oh hey, in the comics today, it's everybody in furry fandom.
Here's a mastodon feature request of my own...
We have blocks & mutes, those are great & all, but sometimes I do not want to mute someone, I just want to "distrust" them.
What I mean is, you flag someone as distrusted, personally or on instance level & that person's content will be marked as sensitive on your side of things. Thinking mainly things like media, as if you add content warnings to every text post you might as well just employ a regular mute since a proper topic couldn't be applied.
Elite Dangerous theory, spoilers
Hmm, the Thargoids in #EliteDangerous only seem to be interested in meta alloys. Umm... Are they bees? Is that their pollen? The game lore seems to hint at this. Maybe war is all wrong and cladding space stations and shit in meta alloys is just causing them to get destroyed so the Thargoids can survive.
The Animatrix is flagrant false advertising. Animal Matrix. It should have been Zootopia's version of The Matrix. #furry
This is deliciously cheesy.
