as I'm seeing @ben0_o's post about Stylish's tracking issues boosted a lot this morning: there's a tracking-free fork of it called Stylus!

The biggest thing of #fediverse for me, is that it has "spaces" (instances) without having to tell a single big corporation that you are the same person in all of them (unlike e.g. FB/twitter) YET those those spaces can overlap/communicate freely (unlike forums).

*I feel it's much easier to be myself here*.

A big thank you to all the people who made this possible, devs of course, but also who brought ideas and designs, and early adopters.

Ok one more of the Funloving Luddite symbols for today then I really gotta quit (I caaaaan't)

a reminder that it's extremely ironic that the first official release of Wolfenstein 3D in Germany that did not get banned is the "Nazi-made" version included as an easter egg in Wolfenstein 2

you know, the one where you're not fighting Nazis, but *are* a Nazi

Incidentally, this (previous toot) is a great example of why software is hard and takes forever to write.

Someone had to think about every single thing you see on the screen, and even more about all the things that are invisible.
