OK the Forza-LEGO crossover is the most ridiculous thing I've done in a long time and I love it.

Trying to bootstrap a new network before you have networking set up makes me feel trapped and claustrophobic. Do not recommend.

lol, someone liked this post and there was - in fact - a notification counter

i do wish there was a notification counter on the notifications button though.

Firefox's Multi-Account Containers add-on is awesome but, what about all the random browsing you do on a daily basis? I stumbled across this gem the other day and it's taken containers to a whole new level but automagically creating temporary containers for new sites you browse to. I highly recommend it: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Finally got @skitteringsurveyor to be able to parse the MTG Esports website. Since they don't use RSS I had to do some clever scraping.

TFW you get a call from the same area code as yours so you know it's spam

E3, Animal Crossing spoilers 

eeee federation is hitting pixelfed soon! My wife wants to try it out but only if she can follow my Mastodon account from it. :)

It's really wild to me that there was a debate between whether we should have a datagram-based system (independent packets moving around a network that are routed to their destination as best as possible) or a virtual circuit system (where the network "clears out" and reserves a specific physical pathway for a connection between two computers). I mean obviously these decisions needed to be made, and early ARPANET IMPs used virtual circuits extensively, so. Yeah.

Can't watch the animal crossing video because I'm at work but oh dear /r/animalcrossing is getting quite emotional!

⚠️ Federation Update ⚠️

We have been testing remote follows and will be releasing a huge update very soon.

You will be able to remote follow a supported account (Pixelfed, Pleroma, Mastodon) on another instance. You will see remote posts in your Home Timeline.

The Network Timeline and support for other ActivityPub implementations will follow.

(If you run an instance, please update to the latest commits)

When they told me that Docker containers were not tiny VMs, my hubris led me to interpret that as a challenge instead of a warning.

Don't be like me. Don't try to use Docker containers as tiny VMs. :)

little tip for new people here: "e3" refers to episode 3 of the second season of Golden Girls
