i have a reasonable expectation that, even though my posts are marked public to other mastodon users that have chosen to be federated with olds.town, that my posts and media are not going to leave mastodon or be indexed or made available externally from mastodon without my express written consent

participation in federation does not imply opt-in to being included in any scraping, research, or any other means of making my posts searchable or available to any institution/site outside of mastodon

the last signal update changed it's fucking windows icon and now im mad cause i'm over 42 and old and i don't like change anymore ever

9 minutes later: welp.. guess jorts.horse didn't restart all its services on reboot... oops

gonna go turn my old band into a retrowave band by dumping the midi information and then running it back thru an old soundblaster 32 awe



LOL just kidding - the midi information would just be middle C for 6 minutes on 5 channels

trying to save my best shitposts for when jorts.horse comes back up but i'm not sure i'll remember them in an hour let alone all the way to 2024

it's the year 2037:

the super powers have all fallen

the united states of amazon has Always been at war with the federated states of BP

the UK finally almost has a deal worked out for brexit

russia is a suburb of india

flying cars were a short lived fad and only still used by gen x

james cameron just released titanic 5

and jorts.horse finally updates to mastodon v3.0.1

the whole 'we'll use any system of measure as long as it isn't metric' meme is slowly becoming the best meme of 2020 and i'm here for it

when will my admin return from the war?

So basically we have exactly two weeks to get a lawyer and it's gonna cost us $4000 up front, so anything anyone can spare and/or any boosts will help

Our lawyer went to court today. We were only allowed to get a continuance for him to work on the case if we pay a month’s rent (at the overcharged rate). Between that and paying for the lawyer, that’s going to cost me $1300. I’ve raised about $300 so far (again, thank you!), but could really use help getting farther, especially given that I’m about to lose my job and don’t have a new one lined up quite yet. I’m sure I’ll find something, but it’ll take a bit to start and get paid, and we’re on a time crunch (the lawyer fees have to be paid right away and the rent has to be paid by the 10th of February).

Hopefully this will all be resolved soon, but again, thank you to everyone who has helped.

only slightly less embarrassing than tearing your rotator cuff from wiping your ass - again

only slightly less embarrassing than tearing your rotator cuff from wiping your ass - again

thinking about becoming the old guy that 30 minutes into a long boring meandering story about fucking nothing always comes back to the story 6 tangents later with

anyway, long story short

i think my dad senses are tuning themselves as time goes on to be able to yell at my kid and wife from an entire other room for farts much like my thermostat sense has grown to be able to sense someone elses kids thinking about touching another dad's thermostat

cause i'm not farting and i'm alone in this room but someone is and it's terrible and i don't know why i can smell it

Show thread

as i've broken squarely into middle age in the last few years, i've noticed my home taking on a medicine cabinet and old man fart smell more and more regardless of how many boxes of incense or how much febreeze we use

pretty sure 70% of that smell is my subconscious fucking with me since 99% of the people who come to the door comment on how good our house smells (like a new age shop is my fav)

but i'm not willing to risk it

so as soon as i'm left unsupervised i'm burning it to the ground

was looking at new thermostats and judging them by how angry i'd get if someone touched it
