Sing Along Edition

Tech News

  • Well, that should free up some time.

    I've appealed the suspension, but a platform that suspends users over such things is a platform that is rapidly dying, probably of sepsis. Now I just need to get back to work and push the little daisies and make them come up.*

    Currently not suspended on Facebook, YouTube, Reddit.  Actually I am still suspended on YouTube but because I'm a paying Google Music subscriber and have bought a couple of videos on Google Play they accidentally gave me a new premium account and linked it to my Gmail.  Shrug.

    Twitter could offer a new feature where for a monthly fee they have potential suspensions reviewed by a human being who is slightly smarter than paint before they take effect, but they seem to be doubling down on the social media equivalent of necrotising fasciitis.

    * I don't think I ever really listened to that song before, just heard snippets of it on the radio back in the day.  I just looked on YouTube (status: not banned).  First, that was a guy?  Second, fuck, that is terrible.

  • Apple's future is cable TV only worse. (Tech Crunch)

    It's a bright sunshiny day for Cupertino.

  • PyPy 7.1 is out.

    This is mainly an update to its Unicode string handling, with improvements to both performance and memory usage. Python 3.6 support is still beta, but if you try sometimes you might find you get what you need.

  • Telegram now lets you delete any message you sent in the last 48 hours from both your device and the recipient's. (Bleeping Computer)

    There's no possible way that will be immediately and massively abused baby one more time.

  • New Zealand is... (One Angry Gamer)

    Seriously, their Prime Minister is a day tripper, possibly a one-way ticket.

  • A team of quantum mechanics working late at the local quantum garage has built a thing that does stuff. (Quanta)

    But they don't have the wings and they wonder why.

Social Media News

  • Discord also just banned oatmeal.  These people are retarded.

    And said "doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take?"

Video of the Day

The internet is now drowning in a sea of schadenfreude, possibly even auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont.

1 "Discord also just banned oatmeal."
Ok, I can't help but wonder if the word Discord is banning is banned for everyone or just people of pallor?

2 You used the R-word again. That's all it takes.

Discord was created by a bunch of Furries, so no wonder it turned into censorious shit.

3 Can't we get a social network created by normal people?  Adulterers, embezzlers, drug addicts, just regular folks, rather than these fucking weirdos?

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
