I still can’t wrap my head around these new iMacs. All these colors and an attempt to make the design more accessible... then poof: external power brick (first time ever on an iMac) and literally no I/O.

What strikes me as bad here is that there’s no marketing material that shows the power brick, and I’m pretty sure a non-trivial number of people will be surprised when they’ll open the box.

A'right, folks: "toot" is no more. Starting today we'll be /posting/.

Here's the relevant PR from @Gargron: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

So yeah, I was listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness... and that somehow reminded me of @nd.😮

I know I’m repeating myself. But this watch face is just friggin’ awesome.

Although I don't like Rust I am rather curious about it.

American health”care” is the apotheosis of senseless, uncontrolled and utter capitalism with the ultimate intent of spoiling the regular joes.

Got my first Moderna shot at a CVS few weeks ago as part of a priority group (healthcare/essential worker and all, as debatable as it may be).

Anyhow: apparently my HMO here in California is now offering me to give me the second shot. And I wonder: should I go to the CVS again or should I trust my HMO?

Go figure...

Soooo many ads on the birdsite, goddamnit...

I’m not a morning person. By far... but in the last couple of days I’ve woken up at 7.30am. Just like that.

And here’s the surprise: there’s light outside, and no dangerous creature roaming around the wilderness ready to kill you and eat you.

I’ve been living a lie!!1!

Oh no it’s Sunday... it means... it means tomorrow... woooooooork

The other day my mother - highly educated and relatively active woman at her age - turned on her Windows PC after few days of inactivity and boom: she got slammed with a pseudo-OOBE flow triggered by a new update.

Completely modal flow: unskippable, and very very nosy.

Now: I do understand the push to advertise the fucking Edge/Office365 at every turn, ffs: is it really hard to imagine that random bastards use their PC just for simple stuff and they don’t care or need that sort of shit?!

This morning I woke up and the first thing I thought was... "how the heck do you translate the word whimsical to italian?!"

TIL that XENIX was stupidly expensive: licenses started at $2000 all the way up to $9000.

And this was in the early 80s...🤯
