I feel like sometimes maybe my taste in shows and movies is really bad and most people I know are afraid to tell me. It's kind of hard sometimes to find folks who wanna watch the things I like outside of some of my closest friends.

Closed down friends.casually.cat, my Diaspora* instance. Just too much in terms of resources to run with very little tangible benefit. Matrix will probably be next because it just doesn't work properly and I see no resolution in sight for that.

I still don’t understand why it’s appropriate for teachers to assign a 5+ page research paper with incredibly intricate requirements and give a student a zero for getting one of the requirements for the assignment slightly off.

Like oh god you typed the paper in size 11.5 font instead of 12. I’ll give you the same grade as someone who did absolutely nothing even though you literally did everything else.

I am simple man. I see Aphyr post, I like.

What if we put Parappa the Rapper's head on top of Link's body! 

It'd look something... like this!

Not even kidding, lack of high speed internet in 2021 is discriminatory and damaging to the opportunities for success to underserved communities

Rant 

I really like how much I've been chatting on discord

But I'm really exhausted trying to listen really hard to mumbles (that I still don't understand) and then someone talks at normal volume and it feels like shouting because I'm so focused on tiny sounds

Discord volume sliders continue to be completely useless 😞

Internet keeps going in and out literally the one week I took a vacation and am not at home :\ Seems to be the router but it won't let me remotely log into it like it usually does so services from Casually.cat will likely be inconsistent for the next week.

You don't owe anyone any explanation for blocking.

Mental Health/Relatable 

Worst part of having Bipolar Depression is the lack of ability to assess risk or make good decisions while manic. It’s very hard to actually control and moderate yourself until it’s too late.

"Microsoft has essentially deprecated JavaScript and the non-profit foundation, which governed it, by TypeScript, which is governed and controlled by the for-profit Microsoft Corporation. … it took the ‘Evil Corp’ approach of making the foundation and JavaScript slowly irrelevant, so it could guarantee that it could monopolize and monetize the whole industry."

"two years ago we have decided to no longer provide Matrix as a service … huge server resources needed to operate what is essentially a Text based chat application. We have decided to go back to … XMPP … we are left with only a handfull of users, but … the amount of resources that are used is unacceptably big: our current Matrix server … consumes about 5GB of RAM (database ram … not counted), and … 170GB of database storage. We find this a tremendous waste of resources …"
