OMG this is AWESOME!! You can get it to generate images from hundreds of categories & even interpolate between two images.

Here's a cross between a border collie and a bullfrog, and a cross between a garter snake and a stopwatch

It feels like frontend engineers and web designers do their hardest work to make the whole experience of browsing the web completely miserable.

Why can't I open some embedded YouTube videos in full-screen? Why can't I just click Back when I want to go back without breaking the entire page? Why is this video playing by itself when I didn't ask it to?

Who are the people designing these completely terrible experiences? What happened to them? Who hurt them?!

Hey there! Are you looking for people to follow on Mastodon? 🐘 Try these! 👀

Trunk has opt-in lists of people to follow, organised by topics. (If you want your name added to a list, go to the site and follow the instructions.)

If I toot and no one reads it, am I on the internet?

To me, the thing that exemplifies "work smarter, not harder" is the Fallout 3 train hat - instead of creating an entirely new system for a train, they just have an NPC wearing a hat which is an entire train, hidden under the floor and running very quickly.

It's absurd, and someone could have spent a lot of time and effort on a new system to get the the same result in a less absurd way. But this works, so why not?

So my new motto is, "don't be afraid to wear a train as a hat."

... plus, of course, HTML.

It's pretty amazing how rarely I encounter the word "hypertext" considering how absolutely inundated I am with its abbreviations "http" and "href".

There's a literal trash fire at my building in . It's getting very smoky in my apartment.

Just in case you missed it:

Have you ever gotten so frustrated that you "flipped the table", only to discover that the flipped table actually kinda works to solve your problem? Is there a name for that? (It's probably on tvtropes somewhere.)

After carrying a Gemini as my only phone for a few weeks, I've decided it's a worthy device. (I am pretty picky, so this is high praise.)

Well that's weird. This toot showed up in my timeline as being from me, but I didn't send it. Unless my android app Tusky glitched somehow? @TheAdmin

Fun weekend project to increase public facing #opsec:

Using OpenPGP.js to encrypt contact form messages client-side, thus being able to receive end-to-end encrypted messages even from strangers who've never heard of PGP:
mayel.space/contact

If you want to do the same and are not a developer, this services makes it easy: encrypt.to
