Was banned from chat for being “weird,” whatever the fuck that’s supposed to mean.

I wanted to be an extra in this movie and they never called back. 😭

Still, I'm really looking forward to Matrix Resurrections. The trailer is like a love letter (with a bit of loathing) to my hometown of San Francisco, and the movie looks promising with plenty of expected action-packed scenes with dazzling visuals.

This will interest very few people, but I have been searching for this particular sound effect for years and never knew the name of it. I have just recently learned it is titled "Man Lets out a Gut-Wrenching Scream and Falls into Distance," also known as the "Howie Scream." It is instantly recognizable, and now I know its name!

This applies in spaces online, mostly. Not everyone can be up to speed on your specific ruleset, especially when they are likely to spend time on multiple other sites with their own specific set of rules. Either have general guidelines that everyone should be familiar with, or else be tolerant of infractions of the special rules. This is how you can have a comfier space without it feeling like a exclusive club or a police station.

Making an arbitrary set of rules and then expecting people to follow them 100% of the time is a recipe for disappointment. Be forgiving of digressions.

All I really want to do is play in my sandbox and not be bothered by anybody and be happy. Is that too much to ask?

I used to get in arguments with other web devs that maybe we *don't* need to add a million hacks and workarounds in order to cater to a handful of IE users. Screw 'em for using a crappy browser and not knowing better. Glad to see this old nag finally put down.

is trending on Twitter rn.

Just keep you updated.

This news really breaks my heart. I love SF’s Japantown and was hoping to come back there for a day of shopping and dining once the lockdown is lifted. I hope this cultural area survives the pandemic.

It includes the rare photo of Thomas and Guy-Manuel that was removed in later printings.

My promotional copy of Daft Punk’s “Homework.” I loved “Da Funk” so much I had to get the earliest available copy. I don’t know if it’s considered rare, but it’s valuable to me.

I did get to meet them at a radio appearance in 1997. That was neat. :)

Daft Punk are done.

I was hoping they would at least put out some more music or do one last tour before calling it quits.

One more thing to break my heart these days. :(

Conservatives only just this year getting upset about "Big Tech" and the result of monopolies on our communication systems and the loss of net neutrality is laughable. Maybe you should speak less and listen more.

My local newspaper had trouble digging up any stories about how Tom Brady grew up in Northern California and went to high school here. He and his family have somehow purged most of that information from the record.
