Random idea for a Mastodon tool you never realised you needed:
You've clicked on a user and you want to check out their timeline and it's 90% boosts and 10% of their own toots. So you click the magic *hide boosts* button under their profile menu and bam, now you can see what they actually have to say when they aren't supporting everyone else.
Wow, Garmin sure is proud of their map updates for GPS units, in this age of everyone carrying a real-time map in their pocket that updates for free.
Inherited a car with a Garmin Nuvi, maps are 5 years old, though it'd be nice to have current maps since it's there on the dash, even if I still use my phone for navigation. $50 one-time update. Sheesh.
me writing programming tools: we need to make it easier to code! liberate the code! make it accessible to all!
me debugging someone else's code: you should need to train for 10 years before you can even touch a text editor, and we need a central guild body that randomly audits members, and if your code quality is bad enough you are immediately executed
Look at this little dragon curled up on its pile of gold. LOOK AT IT!
But Karen, you say, why would you buy one of @quietsnooze 's little dragons when you are making your own? BECAUSE NONE OF MINE HOLD DICE is why.
(yes it should properly be the polyhedrals but the Fudge dice were closer to hand)
Sometimes, exclusion is as important to a community as inclusion. Yes, you want everyone to be welcome to play in your baseball league. But you don't want people playing soccer on your baseball diamond during your game. You're not excluding soccer players (the people) you're excluding soccer (the game). If the people don't want to play baseball, that's not exclusion, that's their decision to not participate in your community. Welcoming soccer is going to break your baseball game.
