This Barr hearing on the #MuellerReport is a lot of ceremony when we really just wanted a pdf attachment.
In order to be verified you have to be put on their list. By hand. And they explicitly don't want to bother with small instances. So, ah, yeah #keybase, f u too.
Being uninterested in the long tail of independent sites says to me that they don't really share my values on what makes federation interesting.
Jason Scott just dumped the ZIL source code for every infocom game on github. Clone it before Activision's lawyers wake up. And now we see how long it takes for the internet to produce a compiler for a language that's been dead for 30+ years from a cache of production grade source code for said language. We've had compiled z-machine files, but never the original ZIL. https://github.com/historicalsource

I'd like to propose bytians - a "new" angular measurement system which uses 256 divisions of a circle.
Full circle - 256 bytians
Half circle - 128 bytians
Right angle - 64 bytians
Diagonal - 32 bytians
We lose nice triangular angles, where 60° = 42.66... bytians. More exactly, this would be 128/3 bytians.
(Also, this has to have been done before)
The singular 'they' in English first appears in a.. (checks notes) a 1375 sexy romance about furries and a werewolf

Okay, so: based on my research I believe that RFC-69, from September 1970, is literally the first example of an internet person doing a reply-all and saying "please unsubscribe me from your list".
This is, of course, nice.
I had a dream last night that I met @scalzi and told him how much I liked the Interdependency series. It's clearly a sign, but I'm not sure what for.

@firstname.lastname@example.org mentioned recently that some kids were talking about *files* as though they were an old person thing. This is a cultural disconnect going way, way past the free/proprietary software divide, where at least you have some simulation of property. The notion of ownership at all is fading away, at least in the digital realm. The young understand that they pay for *access* to media and software, not *ownership*, and most of them (anecdotally) seem totally comfortable with that.^D
