“Oh, no room for Bender, huh? Fine! I’ll go build my own lunar lander, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the lunar lander and the blackjack. Ahh, screw the whole thing!”

Recent twts from fastidious

In-reply-to > This is my first twt here and, as such, it should be something witty, and memorable. Something I should be able to pass down my children as an NFT. Something unique, warm, conveying. I got it, I think: "hello world". Perfect, that ought to do it!

@darch that someday is now for me. I have zero interest on NFTs, will not pay a penny for one, don’t want one, and the list goes on. I bet the term on this instance was used sarcastically.

In-reply-to > I am slowing finding and compiling my own playlist on Apple Music following this YouTube's "Back to the 80s" greatest hits song list. So many nice songs; so many memories there! I was in my teens in the 80s, so I listened to plenty of those.

@lyse glad you liked it! Yes, not all were of my liking, but even those I didn’t like much I also didn’t have to skip. “Suffering” through them was doable.

In-reply-to > Friday's hike in the gray soup. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2022-01-21/ Note that somebody gave the woman a necklace.

@lyse that was quite a story! I could vividly imagine the entire thing, though, up and until the last sentence I imagined the old teacher to be mean, but also sexy. @movq’s cringing on the last sentence snapped me out of it. 🤣

In-reply-to > @prologic Is there any plans for DMs to become a feature at all?

@screem DM are in “private”? Each time you mention someone, like @prologic you are directly mentioning it, but on a public forum. If it is private messages, they were half ‘arsely’ implemented, and they were scrapped. Personally I see no need for it, but I am just a pebble in the river. :-)

In-reply-to > We made use of the beautiful sunshine before it will get dull again the next days. After calling it a day at 15:00 my mate and I headed about two and a half hours in the bush. The boiling sun made the 4°C feel quite alright. No wind in the forest, so quite bearable conditions. Four more photos from that trip.

@lyse again, premiere is my favourite! Second fave is 05 (bonus, how many birds?). On the premiere, is that a small lake, or simply a widening of a small river? Love the colours, and the artefacts the light created on the lens!

In-reply-to > So, is this what being spoiled or, rather, having created a habit feels? I am used to see @lyse on IRC, and around here just about this time, so it is weird neither has happened yet. I hope you are hiking, @lyse, and will bring us more nice pics!

@lyse you are “the supplier” (read it on the context of a drug dealer, LOL). Without your participation, dopamine levels go down. I mean it!

In-reply-to > Twitter Close Friends Feature in Beta Now Called 'Flock' With 150-Person Limit Twitter continues to work on a new feature that lets users post certain tweets to a limited number of close friends in a parallel timeline on the social media platform.

This Twitter Close Friends “Flock” looks like a good idea, issues and problems with the platform aside. It is a more “private” Twitter, and I think that is a good thing. Hoping it goes out for all users and it is not only available for those on Twitter Blue (paid).

In-reply-to > @fastidious Agreed, however we've had a monopoly in a lot of areas in Australia and they haven't taken the initiative with faster speeds without mind blowing cost, unfortunately. Government intervention was actually a blessing to stop the monopoly.

@screem only if it was your last twt, and only if someone hasn’t replied to it. Let’s say you twt, I see it on my pod (or on any other twtxt client that supports the subject/hash extensions), and reply to it, then you go and edit it, there will be disconnections. Normally if you edit it right away, or delete it (again, only for your last twt) everything is fine.

In-reply-to > I was on a video call with Attract.AI and the co-founders jumped on our video call to say hi and see how I was doing (we use them for recruiting in my current day job) -- Well this happened! 😂

@prologic there is more than one algorithm/method to solve it out there. All well known, and used by the top solvers—which include machines. Current solving record I believe it is held by an Aussie.

@prologic I am assuming you guys solved it whilst on the call, right? If so, who was the winner, and how long did it take? My older kid can do it in under two minutes. I thought that was great until I checked the Guinness records. 😂

In-reply-to > Meanwhile, we're barely achieving 20mbps in my neighbourhood and that's the fastest I've ever seen on a residential connection 😞 Kinda blows my mind how cheap those speeds are in comparison.

@screem I see, but it shouldn’t be the job of the government to do everything. That’s where the enterprise comes handy. Letting business compete in the arena will also speed things up (not a pun) and both, businesses and customers, would win.

In-reply-to > Meanwhile, we're barely achieving 20mbps in my neighbourhood and that's the fastest I've ever seen on a residential connection 😞 Kinda blows my mind how cheap those speeds are in comparison.

@screem one day it will get faster. It is just a matter of time. We went from 14400 Bauds modems, to 10Mbps, to 50Mbps, to 200Mbps, to 700Mbps, to the now 1Gbps. And, well, you just saw what’s coming. I can’t help but wonder how will it be 100 years from now.

In-reply-to > Twitter Suspends Wordle-Ruining Bot Twitter has banned @wordlinator, a bot that replied to people's Wordle posts with rude messages that include spoilers for the next day's game. The Verge reports: The account's spoilers appeared to be accurate (the key is easily accessible in the game's code, so it's not necessarily a surprise), which could end up ruining the game for anyone who sees them.

@prologic because it is fun! Because they could! Because some of us are square pegs in round holes. 😂

In-reply-to > Got the pod up and running! Huge thanks to @prologic for the help 😊

@screem 👋🏻 howdy, and welcome mate! I like your domain (why didn’t I get that when I had a chance?)! It normally gets busier around here during UTC daylight, or US hours, but if more Aussies keep joining, pretty soon will be the opposite.

In-reply-to > Coooooool. So it finally happened. Microsoft decided to block all my mails. Congrutalations. I can now no longer respond to someone with whom I’ve already had a conversation going on.

@movq start here, and be prepared for a potentially arduous task. When I was running my own mail server I was able to be unlocked and on their allowed list. I am sure you will be able too, if you want.
