I've been meaning to post this for a while in honor of Black History month, but the various controversies on fedi over the past few weeks have forced me to delay so that I didn't do the whole "white person chimes in by stepping on the person of color talking."
So here's the deal. We've got to do better about being self-starters when it comes to decolonizing our minds, and not always asking the nearest POC. Tori Williams Douglas created White Homework just for that.
Just wanted to throw it out there for reference: I don't approve all follower requests. 90% of the time this is not personal, and really revolves around the fact that I don't know the people trying to follow me.
Sometimes I decline because I use the "follower's-only" mode to keep private things private, and I can't envision how the new follower would respond to some of the things I say.
I also prune my follower list from time to time as I get to know certain accounts. Again, not personal.
On a less joking note, April Fools Day is hell on autistic people, because we tend to take things literally unless given indication to believe otherwise. We spend our lives trying parse whether people are being truthful or not, and a day devoted to roughly 80% of the internet *trying* to trick us is, frankly, an assault to the psyche.
So if you absolutely must participate, then you better CW it.
DVDs were released right when wide-screen TVs first entered the scene, and so both formats were made available.
Movie officianados consider Full-Screen to be the inferior version of most movies, as part of the film is just gone. But most parents were oblivious to this and would just grab whatever was on the shelf.
For those that don't understand the reference:
Movies used to be in two formats: Full-Screen and Wide-Screen.
This was necessary because CRT TVs were squares, and movie theater screens were rectangles.
Editing tricks had to be used to make this work, and roughly 1/3 of the film was essentially lost regardless of how well a job the editor did.
If the director put something important on the side of the screen, it was often missing from the home release. 1/
God, I'll never got over this Opening.
Gundam Wing OP 1.

This is just as stylish as I remember.

There's a lot of subtext to this show that was completely lost on me as a teenager. The political intrigue in this is actually quite good, and it's interesting because the Gundam pilots are basically completely separated from it, forces of nature unleashed by the space colonies to ravage the Sphere Alliance. So the secondary characters are playing chess while the protagonists are boxing. It's a really unique setup I don't think I've seen elsewhere.
Now that we've exhausted the generation name letters (i.e. Gen Z), sociologists have agreed to shift sociological definitions so that we use Pokémon games as generational markers.
For example, I would be Gen 1, as my first game was Pokémon Red. My youngest brother would be Gen 6, as his was Pokémon X.
Nextcloud asking for help
So I have a Nextcloud docker image set up on my home server, and I'm trying to run a query to see if the brute force security extension is working as intended (got 100+ login attempts from an Estonian IP address last week).
But I can't for the life of me figure out how to do this since Nextcloud is pretty vague about it's command line. Documentation was no help.
The table in question is oc_bruteforce_attempts. How do I check it?
FF14 Heavensward Spoilers
There was this boxer who was getting eaten alive because he wouldn't throw an elbow. He didn't want to, he just wouldn't do it. So his trainer told him to throw an elbow, just once, in a nationally televised event and he'd never have to do it again.
He waited for his moment, round 3, and when his opponent least expected it, he hit him with an elbow and nobody ever bothered him again.
... Anyway, that's why Yoshi P had to kill Papalymo.
