Very curious that the effective response to a global crisis is to stop all the shitty parts of capitalism as quickly as possible. Suspend rents, interest, loans, provide people with healthcare, and the ability to get food. The host body is in trouble and the parasite ceases

Why does my cat feel the need to be on my makeup bag instead of, idk, my bed or the multiple cat beds in my bedroom.

re: uspol 

@dthompson I wouldn't be surprised if she stayed in for super tuesday due to a potential VP deal with Biden, but I would be pleasantly surprised if she endorsed Bernie.

What is a fully-qualified IP address? Is it...

@LottieVixen Hey so I can't log into toot.cat on any of my other devices. This one was already logged in which is how I have access now, but anywhere else I am simply sent back to whatever page I was on when I attempt to log in. No errors or anything :/

US politics 

If you're in the US, and you're in a state that votes today (or has early voting open today), GET OUT AND VOTE GDI COME ON WHAT ARE YOU DOING IF YOU'RE NOT?

ps bonus points if u vote for bernie

@editor I wonder how much productivity increases while FB is down...

@jk I'm not sure about that. Optimizing for efficiency should result in smaller, brighter LEDs, no matter the purpose.

@jk so, they were working on it in R&D, but it hasn't been ready until now.

@jk My understanding is that LEDs weren't small enough back then. It took years of research to get them small enough where they can have a dense enough PPI for displays other than, like, billboards.

@annika I can't even think of that scene with Michael without crying.

Neat! Toot.cat is looking spiffy on the glitchsoc fork. Nice job @kity, @woozle, and friends!

@skynebula "We also found that some apps routinely send Facebook data that is incredibly detailed and sometimes sensitive. Again, this concerns data of people who are either logged out of Facebook or who do not have a Facebook account. ... "KAYAK", which sends detailed information about people’s flight searches to Facebook, including: departure city, departure airport, departure date, arrival city, arrival airport, arrival date, number of tickets (including number of children), class of ticket."

@Elizafox I mean, yeah, possibly.

But Tumblr was removed from the App Store specifically due to CP, not porn in general.

Tumblr could be fighting this and they could instead have better processes to crack down on CP like similar services of their scale do.

Instead they took the nuclear option. And now they'll die. Not that Yahoo/AOL/Verizon cares.

mental health stuff, porn stuff 

@LottieVixen Somehow. It's tricky to find trans-positive porn on the internet which doesn't fetishize us. Tumblr was like, the best place for that. It's gonna suck when it's gone.
