  1. Until today I was unconvinced that traditional animation would be viable in a Netflix show. Not only has Disenchantment proven me wrong, it surpasses Futurama in visual quality.

  2. hey all newcomers to who have set up instances and so on!

    we're building pleroma together: us, and you!

    we are few, and we just try to guide the project as best we can, writing code where we can.

    but you folks have really stepped up over the past year, and a lot of the subsystems in pleroma have been designed and built by the greater community.

    but everyone else should come join us too:

    vote up the features and MRs you want to see!
    send us new MRs!
    review MRs that are already there!

    as previously said, we are few, and we try to guide the project based on *your* feedback. this is *your* project and *you* can help shape it how you want it to become.

            • @oracle Using and feeling comfortable with, sorry. I know a few people who feel that cruise control s dangerous and takes control away from them. I was hopeful that younger people would be more open to the idea, but many of my classmates are strongly opposed to the idea.

            • My honest opinion is that the general public should not be instructed with ability to drive, or at the very least, the privilege should require stricter testing standards. People (humans as a whole) are not as intelligent as we perceive ourselves to be. We are stupid, dull, prideful, creatures that make terrible judgments at the expense of all others.

                        • @oracle Yeah, and I usually do OK with them, I guess, lately... But today hit too hard and fast to even try, I was at 98% and tunnel-visioning and I just absolutely HAVE to get this done RIGHT NOW because otherwise I am a GORRAM QUITTER and WHAT WOULD MY MOTHER THINK... :-/ Still working at it. I have a small sand timer for periodic meditative breaks. But none of that makes the office less of a constant and absolute press, none of it actually fixes the problem, all of it starts feeling like a complete waste of time, and sometimes even trying to relax feeds the rage.

                      • So I have this recurring thing in my dreams about the night sky doing impossible things. Last night, I dreamt that there was some kind of atmospheric lensing effect that created a false duplicate of the moon, for at most a couple of seconds a go, in some random spot of the sky. Which happened to coincide with a supermoon / lunar eclipse thing. It was neat.
