So... Amazon's claiming they've changed a delivery date as "the release date [...] was changed by the supplier", yet they haven't changed the release date.

I'm fine with delays but... why the need to lie?

Started trying to get a handle on Rust and... huh, it's doing a good job so far of becoming my favourite language.

Glinner, fediblock 

Hey there in light of anti-trans activist Graham Linehan getting banned from Twitter I strongly urge you to block his own fediverse server glindr.org that he said he’ll start using more

same thing with data and datum

Hello fellow antifacists,

if you speak german, I could need your skills.
(boost appreciated to actually reach out to the german speaking side of the fediverse)

Help, it's too hot.

I practically melt above 18°C and today's supposed to be 27°C :/

(No AC, I'm British and that isn't really a common thing here in homes)

autism thoughts, routines 

i hate how much allistics popularised the idea that autistic ppl are obsessed with routine. like ofc routine is a big thing for a lot of autistic people but its to the point where allistics think you can't be autistic unless you do exactly the same things at exactly the same times every day like a robot and its super harmful to autists with adhd and autists who just don't rely on routine

Telegram feature/privacy PSA (profile picture history) 

Telegram keeps your previous profile pictures in a separate album, visible to everyone.

You can see them by opening the settings panel, and clicking/touching your current profile picture there. From this album you can delete them individually.

To me this is kind of a hidden UI. Maybe it's common knowledge, but I decided to post just in case someone's not aware of this feature, and doesn't want an old picture publicly visible.

PSA, autism, please boost

nvidia drivers, wddm, win10 

People've reported that WDDM 2.7 mitigates the mixed-refresh-rate dual-monitor issue?

Welp, now to wait for NVIDIA to release a driver update so I can finally re-enable HW acceleration.

Tbh though, running Chrome/Discord non-accelerated hasn't actually been bad even in videos. (Though animated backgrounds will apparently crush CPU rendering, hah)

politics 

fundamentally, i'm still closer to a liberal than a leftist -- my ideal society would be one with well-defined and fair laws, in which well-organized welfare programs ensure people have all their basic needs met w/o having to rely on others in the community. but →

If Windows would kindly not intercept Chrome's security key request with its "Windows Hello FIDO2" thing that'd be great.

Having to now close an unnecessary pop-up detracts from the key's convenience :(

USpol, masculinity in the USA 

Something about the current iteration of the #BlackLivesMatter movement that only just struck me? The number of men--young and old, of all races--who have told the press that the video of George Floyd's death made them cry. Now, AMAB folks who grow up in the USA are trained from birth that "men don't cry", and indeed, that most emotional expression is "unmanly". But seeing a real murder? That broke things open.

Normalize men expressing emotions in healthy ways.
