I wish I could change my username to be slightly less cringe :(

But after the first time the armed response guy told us how we can disable the alarm again so now we just put in the code after triggering an alarm and everything is fine

I'm currently in South Africa with my parents on vacation and every day we accidentally trigger the alarm system because nobody ever bothered to properly explain how it works.

Today we found out the garage has a motion sensor too.

Yesterday I discovered the remote for the alarm system has a panic function.

The day before that my father found out the button on the wall wasn't a light switch but yet another panic button.

I've also watched top gun Maverick last week on a flight, mainly because I was interested in the camera work after hearing good things about the practical effects and it was available on the planes entertainment system.

Very well made movie and would recommed if you like a action.

Started watching Wednesday on Netflix and ngl pretty hyped after the first episode.

Time Burtons style is not something I have seeked out to watch in the past but the first episode is very entertaining both from a cinematic perspective as well as based on the premise / portrayal of the characters

BREAKING: German Bundestag votes overwhelmingly in favour of requiring all programmers to wear witch robes and pointy hats, noting that the profession has been taken too seriously for too long.

Brands.town is an absolutely unhinged instance and I like it a lot. brands.town/explore

The thing about Twitter is that it really lacks a lot of the features you'd expect from a true Mastodon replacement.

For example, there's no way to edit your toots (which they, confusingly call "tweets"—let's face it, it's a bit of a silly name that's difficult to take seriously).

"Tweets" can't be covered by a content warning. There's no way to let the poster know you like their tweet without also sharing it, and no bookmark feature.

There's no way to set up your own instance, and you're basically stuck on a single instance of Twitter. That means there's no community moderators you can reach out to to quickly resolve issues. Also, you can't de-federate instances with a lot of problematic content.

It also doesn't Integrate with other fediverse platforms, and I couldn't find the option to turn the ads off.

Really, Twitter has made a good start, but it will need to add a lot of additional features before it gets to the point where it becomes a true Mastodon replacement for most users.

100 Mastodon myths:

1. Mastodon is hard.

FALSE. It’s a "soft"ware. Not hardware.

2. You have to use Linux to post on Mastodon.

FALSE. FreeBSD and OpenBSD are also supported.

3. You need to learn to use the Vim editor before posting on Mastodon.

FALSE. There’s also an emacs plugin.

4. Mastodon is only for computer nerds.

FALSE. As you can see, we sometimes try to make jokes that everyone could understand.

A discussion about distributed federated systems else-network did bring up some concerning history that we should keep in mind:

#XMPP was, briefly, the dominant messaging system on the Internet. It was fully federated allowing hosting anywhere. Major extensions were being done by major companies (Apple adding voice and video for example). And it all fell apart because the three big providers (Apple, Google, Facebook) ditched it to have more control.

#mastodon (1/2)

Wer Abmahnungen von Kilian Lenard wegen Google Fonts erhält, kann diese getrost ignorieren.

Der geehrte Herr Rechtsanwalt handelt rechtsmissbräuchlich und ich finde möglichst viele sollten das wissen.

I have to admit: Elon Musk messing up Twitter (and vice versa) turned out way more entertaining than I expected.
