We use the ship's computer to give a heading in 360 degrees, or in relation to another object like a ship/planet/fixed destination.

But between you and me, some days I just phone it in and say "left" or "right" and leave it to Data to figure out. It's honestly the main reason I keep an android on the bridge.

I regularly drive my horseless carriage to see moving pictures, whenever I receive a coupon via electric mail.

I just finished my hour-long interview with Oxford University concerning their study of Mastodon and decentralized social media.

They were especially interested in what we’ve done here at Veganism Social, as we have our own fork with custom features that address common complaints such as content discoverability.

Veganism Social’s use case was exemplary of the benefits of decentralizion. Our moderation is uniquely anti-speciesist, and the community has a clear purpose beyond ‘general’.

My analyses of the technological and sociological benefits of decentralization are extensive. I (currently) have a deep understanding of Mastodon’s code-base, and how to use it. I also worked as a software developer for centralized social media, and now moderate a subreddit with 100k members.

I could not possibly exhaust myself of exhilarating insights to share.

Surely, the Oxford study will broaden awareness of how decentralized social media will benefit society.

Next time my wife asks me to stop info-dumping, I’ll banter that Oxford might think it’s worth listening to. 🤭

They’re sending me an Amazon gift card as compensation, and of course I’m spending it all on candy.

That's awesome. I think there are so many out there who would be receptive to decentralized social media if they heard about it.

I've been meaning to check it out, but I guess now I don't have to.

I thought something felt off about this Thursday. I hadn't seen Car Talk with Martok yet!

I can't claim this one - I just found it elsewhere. But even if it was one of my edits, you're more than welcome to share anything I post!

I loved this game so much! For all the years between DOS and the internet being navigable enough to find this again, I thought maybe it was a false memory.

I have had such poor luck trying to post gifs on lemmy (aside from comments), but if anyone can nail down how to ensure it works every time, I'll learn!

Oh good! I had tried catbox.moe maybe a couple of months ago, and people were telling me that it was lagging for them. Maybe my gif was too big.

It's considered by many (unofficially) to be a Star Trek movie. I've seen so many "Star Trek movies ranked " lists that just casually include it without explanation.

Kind of like how The Orville is essentially one of the Star Trek series now.
