ISO8601 forever

Houston hospitals hit 100% base ICU capacity. Then they stopped reporting data. 

@bamfic can't hide those

@bnmng Minimal effort at this stage. Setup is a little tricky, especially if you want to add bells and whistles.

Either Mastodon has a memory leak or my VPS sucks, though, because eventually performance starts to drag after a month or so. Hence the reboot every couple months. But the storage requirements of Mastodon mean it's hard to put together a small server and keep it affordable.

There once was a singer of old,
Who then broke away from the fold,
He won't give you up,
He won't let you down,
In a word you have been limerick-rolled.

@bnmng It looks like a reboot fixed everything.... this time.

Official finds Montana GOP violated campaign finance laws 

The Green Party is propped up by the GOP to peel way Democratic voters.


I think my Mastodon instance is broken. I can't get the local feed to load at all, and when I load my profile page, all of the images are full size.

I don't even know where to start to fix it. Maybe time to close up shop?

In my kid's cartoon, the pig just said: "It's a record player. It's how really old people and really cool people listen to music!"

My 5 year old just passed the Marshmallow Test, but the results were interesting. He spent the entire time giggling and covering his mouth. He said afterward he couldn't take his eyes off the marshmallow. What does that mean?

🇺🇸 Politics, sales tax 

States should require businesses to include sales tax in the sticker price. Make it plainly obvious when comparison shopping that $1 is really $1.08 in Tulsa and $1.12 a few miles down the highway in Sapulpa. Gas stations already do this with fuel.
