one time i saw someone on here say they wished their timeline scrolled the other way, so they used css to rotate it 180 degrees and then also rotated every post 180 degrees

Just remembered that in a dream last night, someone was wearing this design on their sweatshirt and it was weird enough that— in dream— I made a mental note to remember it for when I woke up.

Knocked me right out of my suspension of disbelief, this design.

That's the third time this week I read an article talking about how Apple invented the smartphone and mobile applications. Who's spreading this nonsense?

Yes, Apple made smartphones popular (I guess?). But let's not rewrite history here: we had smartphones and apps several years before the first iPhone got released.

Does anyone have recommendations for a good VPS provider? I'm not planning anything fancy, I'm just looking for something affordable that can host a basic nginx install.

Discord, Element, user friendliness rant 

@yuki I recently joined an Element server for the first time and being shown the “verify your session” UI after joining a public room from a web browser, and then needing to use the Electron or mobile app, was not a great first impression.

To your point, maybe distributed/open-source Discord doesn’t need end-to-end encryption, at least for explicitly-public rooms. Direct messaging and normal/private rooms should totally still be encrypted.

Discord, Element, user friendliness rant 

We need a free alternative to discord that is easy to use and setup, both for mobile and desktop.

Matrix/Element has this key generation stuff that while being more secure, is really obnoxious when you only want to do a quick subscribe for joining a creator and having access to their exclusive art.

Imagine trying to join a NSFW creator's server and then having to call them via other means just so they can do remote assistance in setting up your account. And suddenly it's not just you but the other 400 subscribers to their hentai furry art or sex videogames or whatever..

Fuck that shit. :blobcatflip: Sometimes convenience trumps security, and if we don't want another centralized crap-of-a-service like Facebook, we need to start working on actually viable alternatives.

Or is there a way to configure Matrix to have more user friendly options?

I love how much arduino code comes with typos in variable names but the typo is consistent throughout so it works fine even though it's painful to read

int isUpadte = 0;

...

if (!isUpadte)
return 0;
