Ariadne's Space

why the hell would anyone want to do that Inspiration 4 mission?

pros: you get to go into space

cons: you're stuck in space for a week with a tech bro as your captain

thankfully, the eldritchian horror that is local number portability finally resolved itself

unfortunately, goats have a lifecycle, so this will need to be accounted for in the smart contract. but i think goatcoin will moon

i'm going to get some goats and then tokenize them on the blockchain. i'll call it goatcoin.

surprisingly, the Sam's Choice frozen pizzas are actually good, like better than DiGiorno and other options at the same price point. the vegetables appear to be flash frozen as they retain their proper texture after cooking.

Well, that was certainly weird, Jejune's publisher worker had a crashing task because a request had an undefined originator. I wonder what lead to that failure?

those hate groups also say things like "stop transing gay kids"

but there is not really any empirical evidence to support the assertion that gay kids are being "transed"

i mean, sure, there's probably some clueless social workers out there that are inadvertently doing harm, but the LGBFightback group implies there is some conspiracy theory involving "big pharma" to push transgender therapy to "gay kids" but never proves that connection

i guess it's easier to believe a conspiracy theory than to think that perhaps some people need to redefine their gender identity with medical interventions to come to a point of self acceptance

you know, those hate groups always make the point that "parents should love their kids just as they are."

well, what if the kid themselves doesn't like who they are?

unsurprisingly, the LGBFightback hate group is using Spinster.

in my opinion, the future of MIPS is Loongson. but they need to make it a lot easier to get their products outside China.

parents creating social media accounts for their little kids is... maximum cringe

to be absolutely clear: trans rights are human rights, and if you disagree, you probably shouldn't waste your time playing with Jejune as we're not going to get along.

On the bright side, even though the scripting language and APIs are atrocious, I really like Godot's editor. I suspect this is the main reason it's been more popular than projects like Panda3d.

Second Life's horrible scripting language was a lot of people's first programming language for a very similar reason. Composing scenes in code is extremely hard in any language (except maybe Racket). The logic is mostly just glue, and having a reasonable IDE that works out of the box is a huge help.

hmm, I thought LSL was not too bad, given the time constraints in which it was created. at that time, it was not so simple to just embed a scripting language in an app.

Godot has no excuses though -- they should be giving you real languages to work with instead o that GDScript thing.

Did Breadtube ever end up migrating to PeerTube?

February 19, 2021 [00:52:31] by :airforce: Airman Tilley via social.deadsuperhero.com

without a monetization capability, I would assume Breadtube creators would stick to YouTube where they can make some bread.

Strange, the infinite scrolling is causing Vue to do weird stuff.

Pleroma uses the ACL properties on the Create activity to determine the recipient set, and the ACL properties on the child object to determine the message scope.

So, you could do something like send a Create activity addressed to as:Public with a Note that has followers-only scope. Then you could send these Create activities to an instance with a poor reputation. Then you could take some screenshots.

Not that I am proposing anyone do that. But it could be funny.

Jejune also overlooked section 6.2 of the AP spec. Sad!

February 18, 2021 [14:01:05] by Ariadne

Ariadne

ah, right. Pleroma depends on to/cc being on the Note itself. well, that is a spec violation.
