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?!

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."

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.

Seems like it needs a lot of work yet before being usable, but it's an exciting start!

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.)

@emsenn I use emacs inside an ubuntu chroot inside Terminal Emulator. (The one in termux is pretty good too.)

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
