As a starter, the Monoprice Select Mini v2 (E3D) is good. Not only is there a big, long-standing community, but it NEEDS at least a mod or two out of the box—simple ones that get a person used to the idea they CAN mod the thing.

You can use the money you save to buy filament and make dry boxes for it.

The other floater, This, is the only cat in the house who'll eagerly give me kitty headbutts. ❣️(Kitty headbutts are one of my favorite things in the world.)

@flootist

My house has six cats and four people. Each person definitely has a cat that is Their Cat, with two generally-affectionate floaters.

My cat, Trouble, comes into my room each night to snuggle with me. 💕 My son's cat, Dipper, will play chase/tag with him when they're outside. One of the floaters, Link, is waiting every time I return from a late night to rub against my legs and welcome me home.

It's a big digital world, and it's being trained to show you the most wrong-headed, anger-inducing shit so long as you'll spend 240 seconds looking at it.

Good luck out there.

But yeah. Tell it you don't like a single damn thing it's suggested, twice, then go to Hulu. That gets under its algorithmic skin.

@activationfxn

It SUCKS, but only by showing the algorithm that you ONLY want to watch things 85% like you've already seen, or stuff you directly search for, or your subscriptions, does it even attempt to learn. And it HATES every time you leave without spending 8+ minutes on a video.

I probably spend thirty minutes a day keeping that shit up, and it's horrible that it takes that much effort. It's awful that others don't have that sort of time. It's THE WORST that there's SO MUCH FASCIST SHIT

@activationfxn

The only way I think I get around it is this:

At least two, sometimes four times a day, I basically tell the entire YouTube homepage that I'm Not Interested in every last video there. Even stuff I like, but don't want to watch right then.

I do it, maybe leaving one or two thumbnails before refreshing and starting again. Three pages' worth. Then I browse away without watching anything.

Three to four sets, at least three reps each day.

It never shows me Nazi shit.

Played around with Ableton Live 9 a bit this evening. I really appreciate having my son, O, around when I do. There are some things for which he definitely has a better ear.

New York's hottest social media network is MASTODON.

Opened by a cute german boy in 2016, this left-wing wack shack has EVERYTHING: twinks, furries, winos, anarchists, depression...

... GARFIELD.

Don't mind me; I'm just over here losing my shit as Peppa Pig hangs up on Susie Sheep
