#introduction It's ya boi Bytemoth back at it again with some outdated magick and old K6 PCs.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.
A #blog post on what's between gopher and the web as we know it.
"Why don't browsers allocate bigger stack?"
Because shitty online games which rely on stack overflows for obfuscation are breaking then, that's why. For reals.
@mona Absolutely without a doubt. That's what our schools drill into our heads
Activism and progress was absolutely necessary and brave and important up until yesterday, at which point everything became perfect because of all of that activism so now we don't need anymore and the people who still do it are just greedy
@socalledunitedstates I believe that the general (white) American mindset is roughly, "ok all that stuff was a problem once but then America[tm] happened and everything got better for everybody"

One of those posts that made me finally understand my thoughts: https://mobile.twitter.com/jordan_stratton/status/1118141455061671939
"Government: You owe us money. It’s called taxes.
Me: How much do I owe?
Gov’t: You have to figure that out.
Me: I just pay what I want?
Gov’t: Oh, no we know exactly how much you owe. But you have to guess that number, too.
Me: What if I get it wrong?
Gov’t: You go to prison"

I was able to retrieve a few pages of toots from Google's cache, and also have my entire favorites list copied, which I did after an outage previous to this one.
If it doesn't come back up.. well, I won't be thrilled about that, but at least I won't be losing *everything* from the past three months.

Holy shit. I *just* noticed that 'dwb' kind of looks like bug eyes with antennae stalks. I accidentally created the insectoid version of owo when I chose this name.
