I finally found one of the @tootapp Easter eggs - a beautifully rendered billiards game with balls made from friend avatars!
Not counting the constellations that hide behind the instance switcher and change over time...
The phrase "first world problem" has always bugged me. The whole first/third/etc world thing, really.
So maybe I'll start using #richassholeproblems instead, as I complain about the problems with convenient internet based food delivery services.
Finally grabbed Just Cause 4, because there was a sale, and I've been playing it. Made significant progress... except one of the area-unlock missions seems to be bugged, and I can't actually start it. If I track it, it just says 'Return to Aeropuerto Scramble", but the marker doesn't function and the building is a husk.
Sooo... might need to start over from the beginning? Not going to happen soon. :P
"Confirmed. The repeating fast radio bursts from space is a message."
"What does it say?"
"We don't know."
"Who sent it?"
"We don't know."
"Should we reply?"
"It was sent 1.5 billion years ago. They're dead."
"So what do we do?"
"But we don't know them."

I bought protestphone.com at the start of the Trump administration, on the thinking that a service that can provide semi-anonymized phone rentals to people engaging in protests would be a good and useful thing. But protesting doesn't seem nearly as popular now as it did then. Maybe that's just the media not bothering to cover it, but I suspect it also has a lot to do with outrage burnout.

Are there any _tools_ for managing mastodon instance blocks and blocklists? I'm imagining something that knows about the most popular lists, and will let you just checkbox the ones you want to block too. There are enough out there now that the idea of trying to manage the list manually is disheartening.
Clacks hasn't needed to block any instances _yet_, but I imagine it's going to happen and I'd prefer to be in front of it rather than playing catch-up.
