cohost 

i know there's something on the roadmap for not going back to profile at least, which should help
(maybe things are a little different if your account is activated)

i feel like the API is going to be neat for scraping your own posts since there's not a user accessible archive option at present
(which reminds me i should probably find my old archives of my posts here and update them)

(additionally part of the problem is that on ios, you're not allowed browser notifications either - though it prevents the mess chrome got into)

i do feel like there's some friction with cohost's current UI in terms of sharing - tumblr modals could be annoying but at least you'd know that you'd keep your place - unless that's part of the encouragement against overuse; share a post, close the tab

A commission for Webster... you're totally allowed to park it there, yeah?  [2022]

cohost, object permanence 

having minimal notifications is a noble goal

unfortunately without them (and no current way to put things in an RSS reader), my tendency is to forget things exist

somehow i snagged a three character username opening myself up to be hacked in future cohost.org/Dex

(is 2FA not even on the roadmap?)

can't say how much i'll use it given a. pillowfort, and b. here, but good to have the name reserved i guess

once again thinking about cute outfits that i don't think would work on my IRL build

(also, open invitation to friends to have the option of giving me a makeover if we meet IRL)

@Azure yeah if limiting notifications is a goal then RSS is also an excellent way to avoid them

work, return to the office 

welp, there we go, exec team expects everyone back in the office once or twice a week by mid-July

two years without covid and i can pretty much guarantee i'll get it from a packed train

I think it's actually a giant pile of shite that all of the secure, deniable, private methods of sending a message I know of are grossly user-hostile and basically require base level Linux knowledge.

Part of it is my trust floor is really high, but part of it is the venn diagram of people who can write secure platforms and the people who know the first thing about usability looks like an 8.

futurama s5 (2010), transphobia 

watched the remaining episodes of s5 to pass some time earlier

body swap episode that was actually doing alright in terms of gender (but heavy on the fatphobia) until the point of leela (in farnsworth's body) yelling ARE YOU EMBARRASSED BY MY PENIS
next episode has a "cross species dresser" joke
and after that, next episode has racism analogues with all the grace and subtlety of david cage

perhaps i just don't go onto s6

software updates 

(this rant brought to you by wondering if i should install the public beta when it comes out, and then wondering what i'd actually get out of it - with stage manager missing, a lot of the other features i'm interested in are ones that would work best with all devices on the new version, and i do not want to upgrade my main phone to the beta - pokemon go already drains enough battery without beta overheads on top)

software updates 

particularly with the mac version running on intel machines after 2017 (though the feature is less radical on macs)

i think there's a compromise here (e.g. external monitors only being in mirror mode rather than having separate apps running) - it wouldn't be without precedent either, live text on mac was apple silicon only during earliest betas but then a slower version was rolled out to intel machines

people hang onto ipads for a long time; i have basically no other reason to even consider upgrading unless i wanted to get the big one with the flashier screen
but then there's a stick for a certain segment of power users

i do believe apple when they say the full version of the feature would only work with the amount of RAM available to newer models - i believe them less when they say they couldn't get a more limited version working

software updates 

i don't mind "this feature can't run on your 5 year old machine, but you'll get the rest of the OS"

and i don't mind "this new feature is reliant on sensors that are only present in the latest hardware"

but the situation with stage manager and the 2020 ipad pro feels weird and bugs me the more i think about it - "the barely 2 year old device you invested into at the start of the pandemic is now partially obsolete"

i'll be honest, i did not have "sega has game under heavy NDA then leaks parts of it due to origins using the current version of the full hedgehog engine for the 3D components" on the bingo card
