And no, it has not managed to get me @revk on twitter, or even a blue tick. Shame!

You will notice my name has a ยฎ which means "registered trademark". Why? Well, it is because "REVK" is actually a UK registered trademark number UK00003274300, registered by me personally for "Communication by online blogs"...

Unpopular opinion: I enjoyed both Voyager and Enterprise, they were good entertainment and have their places in Trek lore with some gear characters played by good actors - though I think both would have been better without Berman. But the same can be said of all Trek tbh.

Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" ๐Ÿ˜„

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)

Why do the cookie popups start with "We value your privacy", clearly they don't because they would've just not included the crap.

WTAF is going on - why me?!?!?
Every time, packet 12, 14, 16, 18... not answering.

It seems @monzo have made quite a few changes to confirmation of payee, really looking quite good now. Just the ampersand to sort and we are all good, but matching "AND" to "&" is ideal for @BarclaysUK that don't allow you to type one - when will that be fixed, @BarclaysUKHelp ?

Reminder that sodium batteries exist. Yes, salt batteries are a thing and they've been around for quite a while. Research into them started at the same time as lithium batteries in the 1970s and 1980s.

And salt batteries are *at least* as efficient as lithium ones while being cheaper to create and far less damaging to the environment and our finite resources due to the abundance of sodium in the world.

We could be using these today, but capitalism is in the way.

#LinkedIn is copying the contents of my clipboard every keystroke. IOS 14 allows users to see each paste notification.

Iโ€™m on an IPad Pro and itโ€™s copying from the clipboard of my MacBook Pro.

Tik tok just got called out for this exact reason.

RT immunda: Hey @BarclaysUK; maybe don't use @internetarchive as a CDN for your JS assets? ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

I have this weird idea that me, and my family, need to be doing more than "best practice" or "government advice" to protect us all. That is all.

Sorry if not following you if your profile is not English. I speak many languages (programming languages) but only English as a spoken language.

RT builtformars: Banks should have good customer support, right?

I wanted to benchmark how good the UK banks actually are. ๐Ÿ“Š

So I opened 12 real bank accounts, and ran a few tests.

I am wondering if I am actually seeing some Mastodon/Twitter divergence now - some threads only on Mastodon and some only on Twitter. It is all about building up a social network isn't it...

I noticed a post for "light it blue" for NHS, and not wishing to diminish that cause I have to assume a lot of public buildings have full RGB up-lights for every occasion. Do we need a "Light it UV" to wind them up? Maybe 222nm to kill COVID-19?

LOL, I suppose that is one way to finally get a blue tick.
[Actual verification on Mastodon is in links on profile, not a blue tick]
