So, I was going to do a thread with all of my highlights from the hellsite, but I couldn't find a whole bunch to post.

This, however, is my peak thus far: twitter.com/Knightly65/status/

2020's been so utterly ridiculous that I literally went to Britney Spears's Instagram to verify that a "screencap" of her posting a propaganda poster of Mao was Photoshopped. We aren't even a third of the way through the year, everything's fucking wild, and I feel like things are only going to escalate from here, fuck.

I'd just like to let everyone know that the Promenade Bar will remain open during this quarantine. And furthermore, because I'm a generous, warm hearted fool, price increases on drinks will be limited to 150%.

You're welcome.

But if you try to steal toilet paper from the lab @Morn will phase you.

"It's a nice day," I observed, "Let's go for a stroll in town."

"Wow really?"

"It'll be a rare treat!"

It was a very short walk out of the woods.

Buildings towered over us, stiff lines and thick silhouettes.

"Do you know how to work a projector?" one of my cubs asked, staring longingly at a movie theater.

"Sorry love."

We ended up picking up some books at the store, though the alarms from the broken window were a little annoying.

If you want to know exactly how spoiled and privileged we are, just look at all the people who are now complaining how bored they are, having to sit on their couch watching TV for a couple of days - even if it helps fighting a pandemic outbreak and saves lives.

telling these damn kids to get off my lawn, go home and play some video games

hi friends, my trans Jewish boyfriend was just starting to get back on his feet after a really rough patch and then just when he was finally getting job interviews, they all got cancelled due to public health protocols. he needs help making rent at the end of the month ($900), and anything you have to spare would really really help: paypal.com/paypalme2/quinnebro #TransCrowdFund #PleasBoost

Are there any software tools which can be used to check usb-sticks that are not working/showing up under windows?

Gibt es irgendwelche Windows-Tools, mit denen sich USB-Sticks, die nicht mehr reagieren, irgendwie ΓΌberprΓΌfen/checken lassen?

people who are teenagers now??? you're gonna be really freaked out in 10 years when your younger siblings and cousins start snapping back at you with a knobbly "ok zoomer!" if you question their daily habit of omnicasting pointcloud data of themselves gesticulating wildly with electrode pads all over their faces

Reminder that the commander in chief of the norwegian king's guard is Brigadier Sir Nils Olav III

Of more note is the fact that Sir Nils Olav III is a penguin

I highly recommend Seedship, a free narrative browser roguelike optimized for all display types. Basically, there's no way you don't have the ability to play it, it'll run perfectly resized and optimized on the touchscreen of your smart refrigerator. And it's excellent.

The conceit is that you're an AI who cares for humanity over millions of years, their frozen bodies resting in your hull as you fly through space, trying desperately to find them a new planet. The gameplay is interesting, and delivers on great zen roguelike, but even better is the story and difficult moral decisions.

You're out of probes. Do you land here permanently, not knowing if there's a local population who might try to kill you all?
The sea here is boiling. The air is humid and unpleasant. Otherwise, it's lovely... is a constant medium level of discomfort whenever they're outside an okay thing to subject these humans to? What if you pass up this chance and never find anything better? It would be all your fault.
You have some free time between stars. Do you run diagnostics... or do you read through the humans' stored cultural database, and maybe try to learn how to write poetry? Will they appreciate your cold, mechanical prose? Even if they don't, is it okay for you to just do this one thing for yourself? You deserve it.

Try it. See if you can beat my high score. Bet you can't make your humans happier than my humans 😚

I dreamt I tried to join an antifascist werewolf pack in order to gear up for the upcoming revolution (people agreed on september the 3rd). The secret hideout password was "Ultimate Antifascist Werewolf" (you had to stress the first syllable of each word). I woke up before entering the hideout though

Okay, so, uh, yeah, there's nothing stopping someone from running nextcloud server locally on debian on pinephone, if that's a thing someone wanted to do for some reason...
