Running with @ifixcoinops 's idea:

I've got an iPad Air 2, 64GB, with a red Smart Cover, that I'd like to get rid of and get a newer one. Works flawlessly, battery is fine, has a tiny nick on the front bezel.

Any Germany based followers want it?

Apple would give me ~120€ if I traded it in, so anything more than that (plus shipping) I'd be stoked with!

There's a tiny robot adorably, yet orderly, bumbling around my kitchen mopping the floors. It has bump sensors only, no wifi, and manages to clean an entire room without missing a spot, using half a cup of water in the process.

Why can't more technology be like this?

Things that are EXTREMELY my shit: this adorable form

true story: my wife-to-be gave me this form to finish filling out, long before we started dating. I still have it in a drawer somewhere.

Normalize piecemeal relationship building!!

I assumed that if GPT-3 generated pickup lines, they would be terrible because they would be something like human pickup lines. Instead, they are terrible for more delightful reasons.

It's illegal to enter buildings in the zone as most of them are completely unstable, and due to a new zone administration there's typically no bribing your way out of a situation. Sometimes in the most unsuspecting places you may find street art left behind by a Stalker who risked arrest for something many will never see. Somewhat of a real life Easter egg, or a subtle nod to defiance: "You're not suppose to be here."

linux, catgirls, anime eye contact as filtered through monospace text, programming 

once upon a time (yesterday) @ln wrote that, if ps(1) shows processes on Linux, then pspsps shows catgirls

as a result, I made this.

it is a bit of overkill I'm afraid, but welp, Mommy is back to the softwares I guess 🤷‍♀️

Sailfish is a faint glimmer of hope, but frankly, I don't think they have the kind of money to throw at UX that MS, or even BlackBerry on its last leg, pumped into their mobile OSs.

I dug up my old Lumia 950 Windows Phone the other day.

Now I'm sad.

I'd convinced myself that Android isn't that bad, really, but half a second of seeing smooth 60fps UI animation, a single reactive swipe of the home screen, and I am (once again) wondering why the world decided that windows phone, and webOS, and Blackberry 10 (aka QNX) had to die, and Android may live.

🇬🇧 With #chatcontrol, the EU wants #masssurveillance of all your private online communications in real-time. What is it about, what will happen next and what can you do?

forgot both screwdriver and power supply of MNT Reform so, yeah, you can open it with a fork and remove the batteries and power it with a random power supply between 12-32V like this dyson one
