Thinking of specifying a programming language with support for [a; z) sequence notation just to annoy the living hell out of parser engineers…

New Mastodon moderation tool 

Hello #fediblock and #mastoadmin! Please forgive me, I don't actually have an instance block recommendation in this post. However, if you're looking in either of these hashtags, I think you'll appreciate what I do have quite a bit.

I've developed a userscript that lets you perform moderation actions on remote instances extremely quickly and conveniently from the Mastodon frontend. Just highlight a domain, right click, and open a tab to a pre-filled New Domain Block form.

Unfortunately, this only works on Mastodon specifically (as well as its forks).

To install it, follow the instructions on the installation page. All you need to do is make sure you have Tampermonkey installed and then type your instance domain into a box. The page itself answers a few questions that I've anticipated receiving but feel free to ask me about it if you're interested.

I hope that people find this useful!

Stumbled upon another three-letter-acronym with too many meanings (DDD)

Can anyone recommend a Heart Rate Monitor that has a customizable upper alarm for heart rate? I am looking for something I can set to tell me every time I go above 100 bpm. I.e. via vibration or sound.

Ideally a wrist HRM, but I'll consider other options.

"I need a spell to make my boss notice me," the customer twitched, looking around the store, over the counter, anywhere but at her. "I work hard, need a raise. I'm broke. I'm told you take favours?"

"I do," She curled a wicked smile.

"I guess I have no choice. What'll it be?"

"Do my grocery shopping for me? I just haven't had time this week."

"Oh," he relaxed a little. "Oh. Is that all?"

"Pick up a parcel for me too and I'll throw in a free luck charm."

It's a collection of fonts, themes, keyboards and caps you can use to code while being cute as hell. (Fantasque Sans Mono even has liiiigatures!)

What's a pirate's favourite programming language? (bad joke) 

You might think it's R, but their first love is the C.

"Oh, hi, nice to see you! I didn't expect to see you at a pub! "
"Well, the moon is full."
"Why, are you a werewolf?"
"A werewere."
"I don't usually go out, but I was once bitten by an extrovert, so when the moon is full I crave company."
"Well, nibbled."

black bears: adorable garbage disposals, give a wide berth, but they're (usually) cowards, so worst-case just make a lot of noise and try to convince them you are not worth eating.

grizzly bears: avoid!!! worst-case play dead, but lbr you don't want to be where these guys are.

polar bears: ???? why would you EVER decide to go where there are polar bears? -10/10 don't be a fool, worst-case is you DIE.

Ich brauche wohl eine sozialversicherunspflichtige Beschäftigung um in die gesetzliche Krankenkasse zu kommen. Falls wer wen kennt, wo ich teilzeit für ein paar Monate arbeiten kann (am besten remote und gerne ab sofort) wär das super :)

Ich kann ein bisschen Linux, ein bisschen Python, ein bisschen statische Websites und bin recht gut darin Internetsuchmaschinen zu bedienen.
Ich bin auch ganz oke mit Holz, ist remote aber nicht so einfach.
