@Posty @asherwolf @bestthingsbot love Asher, she's taught me so much, love her "best thing today"

One single type of payment terminal (the Verifone H5000), a rather old platform, officially announced End of Life 2018 with some sort of support until 2023, brought down big parts of card payment all over Germany as one of the embedded certificates expired unnoticed on Tuesday.

My Grandma always used to say, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

I don't know if that's true, or just one of Granny's myths.

John Gruber is right for all the wrong reasons:


He's right that taking apart an iPhone with the proper tools is going to be an expensive and time-consuming endeavor. The designs of modern mobile devices demands that kind of sacrifice.

Where he misses the point is that these dinguses have become impossible to service without expensive tools.

Computers used to be something you could service yourself with a little grit and determination. Now it requires a freaking heat gun and a guitar just to get into the case.

Each iteration of miniaturization lead us to this point. When I saw surface-mount components I knew our days of repairability were numbered.

The damnation isn't that it takes thousands of dollars of special equipment to change a battery on the iPhone, it's that we've let companies make devices that require thousands of dollars in special equipment to change a $70 battery.

@DarrenODonovan@twitter.com @thesayno7@twitter.com @Asher_Wolf@twitter.com @JeremyPoxon@twitter.com It's bizzare that @ServicesGovAU@twitter.com are replying "deemed refusal" but say they're still working on it

like, is it because they didn't want to ask for YET ANOTHER extension? is it them acknowledging it's not good enough
so weird
Darren pls

@Posty I'm glad for random strangers far away who shine a little light in the darkness.

@asherwolf @bestthingsbot @Posty I saw your last night and that joy was contagious. It got me thinking that mine had been seeing the confidence of my very shy teen out in public at an event where he felt safe and had fun. Thanks for sharing your lovely one.

Hey Fediverse - the world can be a pretty shitty place sometimes.

One of the few things that was good about Twitter was @asherwolf 's "Best Thing Of The Day" posts.

Talking to Asher, she's encouraged me to take up the practice directly. So I've been following through here and elsewhere.

I encourage you all to also take up the practice either by asking yourself the question "What was the best thing about today?" once a day and posting under or following @bestthingsbot to reflect on the best part of your day. It's only got 73 followers and few replies and I think collectively we can do better.

I realise not every day IS a good day and even posts like "a comfortable bed when I got home" is still fine too. It's LITERALLY the thought that counts here.

It's a simple ""Antidote to dissatisfaction" practice that has real world positive benefits with scientific backing (See Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
- youtube.com/watch?v=WPPPFqsECz )

I have started doing this yesterday here: aus.social/@Posty/108373394775

Where I am, the day is just getting started, I'll bump this later tonight.

I know when I first started this, just even contemplating this felt like a smack in the face to my brain, so I'll get it in early so the thoughts there for later tonight.

Or post now if you're global!

@Thomas I literally have the star wars OG trilogy laserdiscs hanging on the wall in my bedroom

@Unixbigot so on the bad site a follower has linked me to this, which looks very very promising, albeit - annoying to setup.


see also pyicloud linked.

Hey everyone, tell me your best thing of the day.

Mine was my son being inseperable from me today, everywhere i sat he was next to me or on me.

I've been away a bit, think it's his way of saying he missed me.

@screenbeard a parody that is easily recognisable as richie is fine

I'm thinking of doing some commentary over otherwise boring footage
