Pinned post

just saw the national theatre production of frankenstein with cumberbatch & miller and guess whose monster i felt some weird solidarities with.

ntlive.nationaltheatre.org.uk/

ah, crisis averted!

i believe the latest issue of EDGE has RDR2 on the cover but it also features an interview with sam & i w/r/t GNOG.

we were initially only going to get one copy because apparently R* cleaned out all promo copies for themselves 🤔

but i spoke to the interviewer and i have another one coming my way :)

cc @darius && @dunk, ty ty regardless.

does edge magazine for video computer games only publish in the UK?

can someone in the UK purchase a copy of edge magazine for video computer games, in particular the issue featuring GNOG, the video game?

and then hold it in trust until such time as i can acquire said magazine from said trust?

i feel ready to move to scotland now that i know that irn bru is basically orange-coloured cream soda.

by a process of elimination i believe it may be the former.

not sure if it's unnameable despair keeping me awake or if i just have to pee.

in any setting i often wonder how long it will take before i'm found out.

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp)
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
