@trysdyn What, you've never thought of getting an outfit made which is well-polished metallic latex with a few inserts to make it look like armor, without it actually being the least bit rigid?

Hmm, it has just come to my attention that a website I hosted for a friend hasn't worked for over a year and a half, because the shared host it was on upgraded from a version of PHP which has been EOL since the last ice age, and the gallery script it's built on can't run on newer versions. I am sorely tempted to do something stupid and set up a heavily locked down docker container with the old version of PHP it needs, so I can get it working again.

@fluxom_alt It does, yeah. That's what most of my favorite HFY stories revolve around. "These humans are crazy! They come from a planet full of horrifically hostile life, yet they'll pack bond with anything! That one just picked me up, kissed me on the proboscis, and called me adorable!"

It's rare I get to post acab and mock cis-normalization talking points at the same time. 

I imagine the answer is very, right up until a corporation fell afoul of it.

Hmm, I wonder how enforceable a viral license would be. IE, a software license which, by agreeing to it, you also agree to distribute all of your intellectual property under.

@trysdyn Well, precognition *is* a demonstrated power of the Millennium Puzzle. Admittedly, it was only demonstrated in sensing danger, but that just means that we'd have to make this part of the network of royalty-based faster than light communication.

long ruminating on a memory of how I accidentally temporarily became a 3rd grader philosopher 

Oh, nice. I woke up to a message from some fuck head with a slur in their display name demanding that I switch to pleroma and turn on relaying all posts to all federated servers. For anyone else thinking of sending a similar message, I will happily provide a car fire, if you agree to die in it.

Whee, my instance just temporarily died due to running out of disk space, because the command to automatically clean up remote media has changed twice since I set up the cron job for it, and despite the fact that the command I was running hasn't worked since 2018, it hadn't been generating any errors in the log. :/ Also, I'm a little impressed that I went two and a half years on a 40GB disk without cleaning up, and only now ran out of space.

@hierarchon Keepass2Android. Its OTP support is good enough, it doesn't require anything but the device itself to work, and it works with my inputstick so I can press a button and have it automatically type the codes. (Also, it's a full password manager, which is handy)

@trysdyn Sounds like decent GMing to me. Nothing spoils a good dramatic moment quite like dice deciding that something didn't work that should have. Though, with the right group, "yes, and"ing failed rolls can be a lot of fun.

Since I'm following @BestGirlGrace on here, this particular line of Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song doesn't feel particularly surprising. (Flagged as sensitive because it's a potential spoiler for said anime. Also, people should watch it, it's a really good show.)

is this defenestration? 

Oh, FFS. "Alright, we'll power the datacenter back up at 19:00 on Saturday, we'll need you to be available then to bring it up." 11:00 on Saturday: "Hey, we just powered up the datacenter, where are you?"

Whee, I just found the cause of a problem I've been having with my work laptop for, like, two weeks. Apparently, between a Windows update and a firmware update, something was locking the CPU speed to 800 Mhz. On a 3Ghz processor. :/

@trysdyn Well, I've still got the light stick, if you want wifi LED strips.
