Code is good and all but have you ever listened to the blessed silence of a CPU breathing its last gasp as it loses the ability to spy on you.

@aud the CPU longs to sleep the dreamless sleep of rocks once again, the etchings are a cursed rune tattooed onto its soul, constantly itching with the hum of electrons

Gruber musing on how maybe the iPad isn't "limited software out of place on such good hardware," it's "good software with unexpectedly awesome hardware" instead is sure something.

Wandered into a dead looking mall in K-town and found.. an exceptional Korean market (California market), a really good Korean porridge shop (Bonjuk), a traditional Korean tea house open until 10pm (Ye Cafe)

Nice places to sit and lie down for free on the roof

Why is it so good

Why am I so sad (I don’t live here)

jordan,
@jordan@sometimes.social avatar

@skinnylatte LA is really the only other place beside Chicago that I could see myself living, and it's 70% about the food. All my work friends that live in LA hate it, they look at me like I'm nuts when I tell them I love their city. They all want to move to SF. There's nothing to eat in SF.

@skinnylatte I guess I don't really notice the cars and sprawl issues that much because we have the same issues back here, just feels normal to me :P

jordan,
@jordan@sometimes.social avatar

@skinnylatte Yeah, whenever I'm in the Bay Area, it's for some work stuff; meals are usually pre-planned by some corporate travel person and I don't get to find my own food a lot. I should visit some time on my own initiative, but I'd rather go back to LA and eat more of their donuts.

@skinnylatte (LA has the best donut culture over any other area in the country by far)

That Apple ad evokes the exact same horror I felt earlier this year when I learned there are companies destroying old gadgets to turn them into art that hangs on rich people's walls.

@nyquildotorg Ugh, we started getting ads for that around the holiday times and I had to make sure to put the alert out to the family to never buy me anything like that, it will make me sad

I'm on team "there doesn't need to be a display of thumbnail, title and summary for posted links," but also on team "the thumbnail title and summaries change a lot anyway, meaning Mastodon is already serving up inaccurate info, so maybe it wouldn't be the end of the world misinformation-wise to federate them from the person who posted the link "

@nyquildotorg There's oEmbed, it generally works, Mastodon will use it if available

One of the saddest things about leaving Singapore for the U.S. is, not only does McDonalds suck they also don’t have curry sauce. Which makes it impossible for me to eat nuggets

@skinnylatte This reminds me of rural Subway vs urban Subway. At least here in the Midwest US, if you find a Subway in the middle of nowhere, it’s probably pretty decent. You don’t eat at Subway anywhere that might be big enough to have public transit, though; in the cities they’re basically dumpsters with bread.

@textfiles One of the things I really like about Mastodon is the ability to put people in a time-boxed mute. I also practice “block early and often” but sometimes folks are just having a bad week. Or I’m having a bad week and not reacting to them well. I love the “see ya in a week” button.

I'm curious to hear from people what situations beyond "some asshole left a harmful reply and deleting my post is the only way to make it go away," cause them to use delete and redraft instead of editing the original post. I'm sure there are good reasons, I just haven't encountered any yet myself...

There was a period when I was using Elk, where edits to alt text wouldn't persist, but in that case I edited the existing post with something other than Elk rather that delete and redraft.

My phone updated to iOS 17.4.1 last night. As I was blindly fumbling with the alarm this morning, it showed me a screen, which, in retrospect, was asking me if I wanted to turn some feature on. In my grogginess, I mashed the blue button before my eyes focused enough to actually realize what I was doing. By the time I realized what was happening, it was too late, and the screen vanished. WTF did I turn on this morning?
