A classic story that bears reposting:
"We're having a problem sending email out of the department."
"What's the problem?" I asked.
"We can't send mail more than 500 miles," the chairman explained.
I choked on my latte. "Come again?"
"We can't send mail farther than 500 miles from here," he repeated. "A little bit more, actually. Call it 520 miles. But no farther."

WoW Leveling Experience Review Show more
So I dinged 110 today, started playing in January and had a few months of pause in between. I'd say WoW is decent enough to play, but it always has something for me to complain about. At first it's the graphics and relative sparseness of content, and in the end it's the player being some almighty hero of Azeroth. Wrath to WoD is kinda a mix of those two.
Wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but it's a reason to talk to people and spend time socializing. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Hi again fedi, I accidentally filled up my instance's storage so I was offline for a day
Reporting live from the cold north: I am currently melting. I think I need to sit in a bucket so I don't lose any important bits while this heatwave is on. Seriously, I should be sleeping, but I can't because the only way to stay alive is a fan, and that isn't very sleep inducing.
You know when you don't post for a while and want to post but don't know what to post and then you just don't post? Yeah me too.
AP ponderings Show more
I wonder how much code of the current ActivityPub implementations exists only because most of them are designed to scale for many users and be a user friendly experience and stuff. By which I guess I mean, do you really have to spend like a year to make an AP server+client? I should really just try it instead of wasting time thinking about it.
Sorry for the pol repost, but that's a wild realization I just had as well.
socialism, scandinavia Show more
Sometimes I have trouble remembering that other countries don't have the same level of background socialism as Denmark.
Coops are ubiquitous here, I rent my home from a coop (I'm a member), half the convenience stores around are part of a coop (I'm a member), the milk I drink is produced by a coop (farmer-owned, I think my uncle is a member), etc.
And all of these coops have been around for more than 50 years. Hel, even my IT-worker's union is over 50 years old.
It's 6 AM. Been playing Kingdoms and Castles for the whole night. It's very good. Now, I really need to be up in like 4 hours, so, good night.
You know when someone makes a game that's like, roughly, 1:1 exactly what you've been thinking about making for years? Pretty fun stuff.
In other news, for the first time in a while, I sunk 5 hours into a game by complete accident. Kingdoms and Castles is pretty good! http://www.kingdomsandcastles.com/
I know Gnome apps are considered bloated but nautilus really drove the point home with their icon choice.
I love/hate having ideas when I'm tired. I love it because they're most inspiring and amazing ideas I ever get, but they also always get shut down by grumpy morning me the day after.
Gamers™ don't know how little they know about games Show more
I've come to the realization that gamers shout a lot about stuff they don't know anything about. This revelation brought to you by the people on Reddit who speculate about what happens when you tweak Skyrim's ini files and who make bold statements about what affects performance, and the people complaining about how Skyrim VR didn't reimplement all gameplay systems to accommodate VR.
(Though I do agree that Skyrim VR is priced way too high.)
