"A defiant Manning told Judge Anthony Trenga in a federal district court in Alexandria, Virginia, that she would β€œrather starve to death” than do what the state insisted and give testimony before the grand jury."

the centrality of twitter in peoples socials circles encourages using it against the way its designed because micro blogging is an inherently limiting format. It also tends to make these posts more terse and combative because people need to save every word. (2/im not actually going to do this)

Being tired is not a badge of honor. It doesn't make you more worthy, it just means you're tired.

also the way mastodon (and i believe pleroma) hide content besides notes (what AP calls short form formatted text) on the timeline to a link does sites hosting platforms like write.freely so dirty. You're making the content require you to leave the platform to even sample properly. A little teaser of what the post is about couldn't hurt. God there are so many cool ways you could show this. I esp blame Pleroma because that wide ass single column could be very good for displaying a write.freely post.

q. why does windows do [bizarre action]
a. for compatibility. to answer in more detail, we'll need to discuss a flaw in
:brain1: earlier versions of windows NT
:brain2: pre-NT windows versions

Pretty sure my gender is not computable in polynomial time. You could say I'm NB-complete.

also if you're wondering why so many files use three letter extensions, like how JPEGs are often .JPG: it's because of MS-DOS. DOS allowed for filenames with a maximum length of 8.3 - that is, eight letters with a three letter extension. so FILENAME.JPG is okay, but FILE_NAME.JPEG is too long on both accounts. everyone just kinda agreed that 3 is a good number for file extensions and here we are still using it for pretty much everything even though it hasn't been required for decades

Mastodon hides like/boost count in timelines, that is a good design.
