When I fave a toot, it doesn't always - or even often - mean: "I like the thing you tooted about."
Very often it means "Thank you for sharing, I acknowledge your toot, and I think of you."
That means I like both kinds of people: Those who have gender(s) and those who don't.
So apparently uBlock Origin, with which I spent way too much time today, can be used to CHANGE a site's css.
And since I'm a bit paranoid about extensions, I decided to ditch Stylus and recreate @numimyon's colorful mastodon thing in UBO! And I added a rainbow TOOT! button!

The purge bullshit Show more
What the hell! At the train station on the big screen, every second ad (and there are a lot of ads!) is for The Purge, which is apparently a TV show now.
It's a scary looking ad for a - I assume - M rated show... in public, in the afternoon, in a place where lots of children are.
*mumbles to themselves* Liches get stitches.

Another rant about how useless Windows 10 is Show more
I use a USB switch to switch keyboard and mouse between my two machines.
On Linux, keyboard and mouse are recognizes the INSTANT I switch. Same in the BIOS!
But on Windows 10 I get a popup saying a "New Device" was detected every couple of switches.
Then it takes 15-60 seconds for it to - apparently - install a driver? For a standard USB HID device? Then I get another popup saying it's "ready to use".
How do you foul this up? The BIOS does it better!?
Had to rephrase, sorry. I wrote this just after getting up and I wasn't happy with the lack of precision.
Do you know that rare but sublime pleasure, when a warm breeze gently blows over your skin *just so*, and you feel like your every desire has been fulfilled?
I just tried to understand how the 555 timer IC works and now my head hurts.
Look, I DIG that old-school (nowadays) reward loop, okay?
GIVE ME ITEMS TILL I CAN'T CARRY ANYMORE!
And then give me more and make me go back to town to sell it all!
Or give it to my pet, like in Torchlight II!
But: Don't make me click, my wrist doesn't like that 😦
Me: *listens to a podcast about Diablo*
Me: "Oh, Diablo was great! I should pl-
My wrist: "OH NO YOU DON'T!"
Me: "Fair. How about with a controller?"
My wrist: "Yeah, we can give that a try."
Steam: "Yo! You own Victor Vran, it's like Diablo but with controller support!"
Me: "Awesome! Install that shit!"
Victor Vran: *looks good, controls good*
Victor Vran: *drops 5 items in the first hour, none of them magic*
I've only once done something like this before but: I really need to get out and meet someone. If you're in Vienna, not a cis man and up for meeting up with me, feel free to message me.
birdsite link - Linguistics Survey Show more
Someone is writing a dissertation to try and map African-American English linguistically, and asks that, if you identify as black and grew up in the United States, you take five minutes to fill out a short survey:
(Boosts okay and appreciated, ofc. <3)
the mere existence of billionaires is immoral
