Pinned toot

It's ya boi Bytemoth back at it again with some outdated magick and old K6 PCs. I've been procrastinating on an open-source sci-fan universe for the past 9 years, and a website about it for 6; Stopped working on them to run some Tumblr RP blogs for a while.

I'm very asocial, so there won't be much interaction from me unless I think I can add something useful/helpful.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

TIL that pirates believed in free community education and the public domain of knowledge...

So the etymology of online piracy does actually have some accuracy to it... huh

DISNEY OWNS EVERYTHING SO IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE NEW CULTURE WHICH CANNOT BE OWNED

your regular reminder that censoring words l*ke th*s is actively counterproductive because it bypasses the filters that people set up for themselves

to take an innocuous example, if i use filters to block the word "orange", and you write "or*nge", you have now ensured that i will see a post that i have explicitly tried to get out of my timeline

"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.

It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.

Things that we should hide, and must question why a government or business NEEDS access to:

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

#IHaveSomethingToHide

Ascii art 

"Reduce!" howled the protestors, "Reuse! Recycle!"

They were at it all night, keeping CEOs awake, vacating just before dawn.

As dusk blossomed on distant continents, others concerned with the environment rose and marched into the night.

Some simply planted and tended saplings, fiercely protecting their oxygen giving charges.

The vampires would save the Earth if humans didn't.

After all, they UNDERSTOOD conserving THEIR food supply.

People on forums and Tumblr shouting about toxic masculinity, homophobia, and racism got me to listen, examine my prejudices, and recognize privilege & oppression. There's a reason the far right came up with "Social Justice Warrior" as an insult. They know online activism works.

Mastodon is like the internet if the internet was run by people who thought the internet was a mistake

every time i watch anime from the 80s/90s it affirms my belief that minidisc was the best format, aesthetically

YouTube should have taken a much clearer, cleaner approach to a child-friendly platform, if they wanted it at all. The reason why they didn't is because there wasn't good money in that. So now they've shoehorned all of us into being on the hook, by changing the business model without actually changing the years of back-content.

Anime and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race.
