DISGUSTED at the double standards i see on mastodon.

When I, a silicon valley startup tech guy, talk about wanting activitypub to be the Next Big Thing, to see the fediverse grow endlessly, to expand to impossible sizes, I'm a Dirty Capitalist who you hate and want to murder

But when some FURRY posts about how they want to be INFLATED all HUGE until they're the BIGGEST AROUND

I have a piece of tape on my screen protector to avoid getting shards of glass in my fingers

I should probably replace it

I only know of one CA that absolutely makes sure of this - certum - and that's probably because their cheapest code signing cert is €25, so it would be trivial to test

Show thread

fun fact: every major code signing CA mandate that your private key is stored on a certified HSM or similar, but multiple CAs (including DigiCert and VeriSign) do not actually verify this from experience

and before anyone mentions using virustotal, it's a minimum of five digits USD for using it in a commercial, automated capacity - and I doubt I can get that greenlit for something that happens three times a year and is solved in a couple hours

for how much of an issue "oops false positive on our software so it's deleted by antiviruses" is, no company offers a free (or even simple to order) command line scanner so we can actually check before releasing software

like, I'm sorry F-Secure is deleting our software, we had literally no way of knowing before release

watched Postal (2007) today, which, given it's a Uwe Boll movie, was certainly one of the movies of all time

would recommend heartily, if you leave your braincells at the door, and don't mind getting insulted and stereotyped (because that's postal's whole schtick, and the movie copies it)

explicit furry art :over18: synth OC with unusual bits 

it really puts the “joy” in “joystick”

reading the dev guide and it's a hoot

"Assuming the user will approach a piece of software that involves Buttplug in the same way they would, say, a word processor, will end up in a fuckable word processor. If that's what you were aiming for, great, but otherwise this will just end up in a frustrated user and something that looked like a cat walked across the keyboard."

Sir, I would love to "do the mario" but based on your instructions of "swing your arms from side to side" and "take one step and then again" all walking is "the mario"

Hey, remember that "I want a girl" Cake thread?

I did.

On 16th March, 1968 Warrant Officer Hugh Thompson Jnr was flying helicopter reconnaissance for an attack on an alleged North Vietnamese-controlled village at My Lai.

As the ground attack developed below, Thompson realised he was in fact witnessing something something else:

A massacre.

He decided to act. /1 🧵 #history #histodons

Dyspraxia isn't just accidentally clicking or tapping twice, or inserting extra keypresses.

It's holding a control down a fraction of a second longer than you intended when gaming, because you didn't realize you were white-knuckling the inputs with every press.

It's dropping the lid for your insulated coffee mug squarely upon your insulated coffee mug as you go to put it on properly, because you were holding it with just slightly too little pressure.

It's not stopping your elbow or shoulder before it hits a wall or corner or doorframe, because you underestimated the braking force required to stop in time.

It's going to make a gesture with one hand, knowing what gesture it is you want, and yet having your fingers get tangled in each other instead of performing the gesture.

Dyspraxia is, in so many words, real-world janky controller syndrome.

And you can't tell someone has it by looking at them.
