Enjoy being where you are.

No you're neither Einstein, Napoleon, Jesus nor Muhammad.

But just enjoy being who you are.

Because if you fail to enjoy being who you are, you'll probably loose all the energy you actually *need* to become who you're actually *meant to be*.

I keep phase-changing between being serious and being silly... and too rapidly at that I think...

Is it okay if I don't follow as many people as I find so that I get followed by as many people as possible?

Because I don't want to follow as many people as I find, nor do I want to be followed by as many people as possible.

I've been traumatized by that game and I don't want to play anymore.

On the road on the road on the road.

The Crew Dragon launch benefits not only USians. And yes I'm Indonesian (read: non-USian).

Yes despite all the Trump kiss-assery. And despite the people in the streets. Whether to protest peacefully or to riot emotionally.

It's not an either-or.

Damn it it's 5:04am local time and I've been up since 2am. I want to sleep.

The International Space Station is still international. And as of today the Russians are no longer the only game in town for sending humans up there.

Crewed space flight will only go more international from this day going forward.

All that said though: congrats Crew Dragon, NASA, and Space X for the successful *and safe* launch today.

Reusable human spacecraft is here again, in yes a new form.

I'm excited & allowed to be excited.

Got me thinking too, is it possible to complete Tomb Raider 2013 without killing anyone? Or at least maybe with minimum kills, like how you could do with Metal Gear Solid on the PlayStation?

Maybe I'll try that on my second playthrough.

And they say the attention economy is a false or erroneous viewpoint. Heh.

My meditation app constantly nagging me to turn on notifications is very 2020

Just watched The Art of Self Defense (2019). The pace is slow like a European movie. The comedy is not always funny. The darkness of the humor is bland, considering how dark other dark comedies have gone over the years even recently.

But overall I still do not regret watching it. I like it.

Yes there's something to be well-acknowledged in the fact that Diaspora was copied by (feature-wise, at least initially) โ€” and has now outlasted โ€” Google+.

But still though it is hard to say that either IdentiCa or StatusNet has outlasted Twitter.

And by lineage, this critique also applies to Mastodon. (And Pleroma too, yeah sure.)

User adoption still matters.

This is *NOT* about cultural politics or identity politics, I promise.

...And imho it has become even more relevant today in 2020, the comparison between Windows and Linux.

Another Steam Store impulse purchase, heheh: Tomb Raider 2013, currently at 85% discount until May 28th..

I really should separate my studio (working quarters) from my sleeping quarters (bedroom).

Make them be two different and separate areas.

They have the right to try to say whatever the fuck they want.

I have the right to forever ignore whatever the fuck they want to say and forever banish them to the void null port.

Yes amazingly enough the domain exists and the people enthusiastically using that Mastodon server expects to be interacted with.

If you're thinking of interacting with them, I respectfully suggest: don't.

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
