What the actual fuck?

This is one of the reasons I no longer use

That - and also no longer working public folders.

Can somebody explain me why does premium exist?

Well, beyond HR's and employers, of course - they, out of question, need it somehow as one of their tools of the trade.

But why a humble engineer would buy premium account? Does it affect career? Is it useful sometime beyond changing an employer?

I hate GTA V (because it had turned into one of those free-to-play games, where you either grind or pay real money to have fun)

Yet still I play it sometimes. Mostly because it is still a perfect coop activity to spend time with friends. boosted

Critical Role played the Wendy's RPG, and it's excruciating. Matt's eyebrow arches up, up, up as he gets madder and madder at the shitty puns and ad setting.

Mood board from birbsite:

Oh, on second thought, I guess I know - it is a dick move, and Nvidia is a monopolist at some extent.

I mean, I get a great GPU, they get my money. It's a win-win. Then they want my data, and to get that they (at some point) limit my ability to use my GPU.

I believe this would actually make a GREAT souvenir for a programmer. Also, if made easy-programmable, it could be a pretty useful one, too

In order to update windows Nvidia drivers via their "GeForce Experience" software, one has to login.

I have paid a vast of money for a video card - and still ge-forced to login and watch ads to get an update I do not really care for...

I am not sure why it bothers me tho.

Soon I will be skillful enough to add "bat file programmer" to my CV

Okay, this is weird and unusual for me. A lot of peeps seem to be using mastodon as a replacement for twitter.

I don't. I never used Twitter that much (even tho I'm on Twitter for, like, thirteen years) and the very manner of tweeting feels sorta odd for me.

Especially the provoking tweets.

"I knew two kinds of discipline
as a child: none at all, and too much. The former leads to degenerate behavior. When I speak of degeneracy, I am not being priggish, sir — I am alluding to things well known to me, as they made my own childhood less than idyllic." - Neal Stephenson, Diamond Age boosted

If you are making a web browser - make sure its website runs on IE8.

In order to download on fresh Win7 install, I had to use another browser...

What sets appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines:

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
