Seriously tho this is a great article that actually does justice to the debate. And also while we're talking about pasta debates let me remind everyone of this fantastic thread. twitter.com/David_Rudnick/stat

@memnus It was the weirdest thing about travelling across the Pacific for work. Second weirdest was the return flight which usually arrived at the same time I departed.

Like I don’t usually follow up my own posts with “omfg late capitalism” but “CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOW YOU MUST JIZZ WITH OUR PRODUCTS TO VAGUELY ASSUAGE THE DYING” is possibly tiptoeing into late late capitalism.

Ok so disaster charity sales are nothing new.

But this Lelo email about a hurricane charity sale (for a still going storm) is... something.

“We’ll donate probably < 5% and give you free lube. People are suffering HURRY.”

“Your opportunity to have an orgasm AND save a life.”

@DylanTheThomas @ToniaThomas I realized that part way through. But MRDA seems more defensive/physical than WFTDA matches that I've been to. Am I imagining that?

@DylanTheThomas I think Twitch randomly suggested I watch the derby that @ToniaThomas's at? Men's derby seems different than the women's derby that I've been to in the past?

@DylanTheThomas It was fun watching him jog up to his spot on the stage after the match for the final shot. I think they actually put a little blue square on an otherwise dark display so he could hit the mark just right.

@DylanTheThomas They're both good! Except the crowd. There's this one jerk in the upper deck and just knowing he's there ruins the whole thing. 😀

@DylanTheThomas I don't know how to re- and quote-reboost this, but in case you haven't read it, this seems very relevant to your interests: friend.camp/@darius/1024067321

@DylanTheThomas Wait, are you unfamiliar with the works of dril, our greatest living wordsmith?

@DylanTheThomas "youknow what that means. its time to drink precisely one beer and call 911"

@DylanTheThomas I'm sure Cooper and Ginger would underst... Oh, regular co-workers!

Shameful High School Moments: 

@DylanTheThomas Thanks for making me feel old, because not only did I not have a cell phone in high school (other than special times I borrowed one from my parents), I didn't have a cell phone that could support samples as ring tones until a couple of years after leaving university!

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

@DylanTheThomas Or I could download it on my phone, SFTP it to a machine at home, switch accounts, and SFTP it back because I don't know a better way.
