A note about replacing the watch battery in a Tile Mate: The battery inside is a CR2025 and if you use a CR2032, the case will not fit back together, and the piezo speaker will not connect, unless you do what I did and use a tiny pair of pliers to pull the contacts up a bit so they do. I finished mine off with tape to keep it together

tile app keeps hounding me to buy a new one because the battery is dead, and I’m like “nah”

tfw you’re getting your ass kicked by dean cain on american gladiators but you’re still six years from starring in scrubs

After I took this picture, she went into Rabbit Twitchy Sleep, which looks upsetting the first time you see it. but you learn to swoon instead of worry after the first couple times

I hope video game preservationists are on top of such titles as “System Software Update” because my PS4 has that one up quite a bit

For the late night crowd: I have my first *brand new* Mastodon bot. It's available at @animorphs and it generates book covers from the Animorphs series featuring all your favorite celebrities

instead of doing activitypub stuff I'm writing a quick tool to normalize mjpeg streams at a constant framerate 😌

I'm happy to announce that my barebones ActivityPub server, implemented in Node.js/Express, is now open source! I intend for it to be a reference implementation for developers who are adding ActivityPub to their own services, but also it is an application server that you can build on if you want.

In other words, t's a few hundred lines of code that lets you create Mastodon-compatible accounts that can accept follow requests and post stuff to their followers.


if anyone asks, ACAB is an acronym for learning musical scales

I like to keep my own personal earnestness/irony ratio on here at like 90/10

it’s pretty clear garbglrn is out of his depth in serving as an example of how to conduct his shit, and I really don’t care for this monolithic ruby trash heap

I see a lot of extant and new activitypub capable social servers being developed, but I’d rather see more tools for people with existing or adjacent platforms to be able to connect them to other disparate systems using activitypub. for instance: I can’t stop thinking there should be a more shallow implementation of a server that just uses inotify to watch a specific directory in everyone’s ~ and update their outbox accordingly, or the ability to read their inbox with mutt or some shit

do you think when Marvel made Ghost Rider, the artist had to be physically restrained from naming him "Harley Skeleton"
