so my lil' bro is playing Snake Vs. Block and they've said something interesting: that they're playing "online with some friends". The iPad doesn't have internet at the moment, though this doesn't seem to concern them. Either this game has some crazy P2P tech or it's disguising AI as real people? it's doing a good enough job to convince a 9yo that they're playing with real people. Not sure how I feel about that, really.

All right, my email address is valid enough for you to accept in a form to get a discount.
And valid enough for you to send me marketing crap I never asked for.
But not valid enough for your unsubscribe form?

Obviously it's time to set up a procmail rule to bounce everything from you.

(Also I wish people would quit thinking their thrown-together semi-rumpular regexes can actually validate email addresses.)

I've used a VR headset a couple of times and each time I was told that my glasses wouldn't be an issue. Which was incorrect. My glasses are probably just too big or something.

But it got me thinking: would it be possible in principle to have a VR headset where you plug in your prescription (or maybe just turn a knob or something, which sounds easier) and have it correct for your eyesight, making your glasses unnecessary?

I can never find it, but back during all those clown sightings there was an article where a sheriff was telling people not to worry because "he believed it wasn't real clowns, just people in clown outfits" and I think about that all the time

i wish that gargron would be less stubborn and add some of the features we have pushed for outside the mastodon sphere, it would help to improve the fediverse experience for everyone.

things like rich text formatting, which is supported by basically every software other than mastodon, allow people to express themselves through formatting without breaking screen readers, for example.
