@pelagikat we couldn't get home fast enough. There were at least 10 cars like this suddenly all through our neighbourhood.

LOL I guess Signal is back up because suddenly everyone is "on Signal"

here's a really long shot: anyone speak Malayalam?

Trying to process how the NRA can simultaneously claim to be "in the strongest financial position in years" and be filing for bankruptcy. Have they been trading while insolvent?

cops in libraries 

@tombies the kids teach the cops?

There are two types of Australia rural library websites:

"We're located in the tin shed behind the Shire Hall, call our friendly librarian Maureen on 9911 2233 to find out when we're open."

or

"CUSTOMERS WILL BE CHARGED FOR LOST OR DAMAGED ITEMS.

NON-RESIDENTS MUST PAY $50 BOND.

Do better, regional West Australian public library that uses this as one of the only two images on your website.

why are so many people saying "the fediverse has done way more than w3c. screw them" ... folks *waves hands around* this shit works because a bunch of people volunteered their time to standardize things. you can hate the policies of one such working group, but it's not magic. those people deserve credit and not such erasure.

@platypus @TeamMidwest Yeah this is obvious to me but would not have been to a younger me. The sense that you’re not allowed to “fail” (despite being totally overwhelmed) and not allowed to ask can be strong.

@acciomath yeah I've come to the conclusion that programming book authors should not attempt humour. It's always either cringeworthy or hugely offputting.

my usual whining about library websites 

"To enable everyone to have access to our collections, we have an Overdue Policy...
Details of this policy are available in our Welcome booklet."

Hello to Fediverse newcomers, except for white supremacists; in that case you're not welcome. Delete your account and sit with what a horrid person you are.
