@rek reminds me of a conversation with this one guy i know who was going crazy trying to make a static webpage with an editor component, using "modern practices" (node server, with all that jazz), and was absolutely baffled when i said that he can just write and open html files with his browser as-is and everything still works just fine for his usecase

Oh speaking of "fuck the RIAA", deemix!

A spiritual successor to Deezloader written from the ground up. Rip music directly from Deezer's servers in FLAC (without paying for 'premium'). No electron, no DRM, no bullshit.

Install scripts:

You do need an "ARL" (auth token) which requires you to register.

Unless someone were to share their ARL of course...

after overworking myself for the glory of capitalism and reading Keiji Nishitani, i see Aristotle that hung himself in the lines of text

I guess some people won't accept my follow request cause of my empty profile which makes them suspicious of me, as if I am a russian bot, f*b*i, that unlucky date or whatever another reason.

No, most likely I will never even interfere into your mentions or DM; my sole purpose of being in the Fediverse is the same one why I am on the Internet - I live here. If I don't get anything, I won't bother anyone and just read and learn continuously on my own. Well, maybe the issue is my quite poor communication skills that is caused by living a big part of my life in a very judgemental environment and I can't get used to something different. Self-reflection is hard to process.

Also, I am still getting acquainted (and quite amazed, ngl) with federated network. I need time.

That's it. I am not sorry if I made a language mistake, English is not my native tongue.

Peace out.
