Let's see what more Katie Douglas projects I have access to, for the Birthweek Rewatch. Annoyed I can no longer watch Mary Kills People, her performance in that was amazing, though smallish. But there's always Defiance. I'm rewatching the minisodes that came between S1 and 2, because I think that was mainly her as young Irisa. And if not, it's always worth it to watch Defiance.

And finally there's Creeped Out, where Katie plays in the season 1 finale double episode Side Show. It's the only remaining thing I can think of that I have access to. If you don't mind watching kids tv, and I don't since some of the greatest tv is kids tv and adults do themselves a disservice excluding it from their entertainment intake, you can see a performance of Katie that is perfect for the reveal at the end. So you'll have to watch it at least twice to appreciate it fully.

It opens with the circus ringmaster introducing the show and I'm fully expecting someone in the audience to shout out "where's the elephant!". No, I don't make references that can be understood except by a very select few.


Playing actual CDs today. It's all Alizée so far.

Alizée's 5th album, called 5, with her on the cover in black and white
Followed of course by Axelle Red.

Continuing with the French language songs, playing Vanessa Paradis's second CD Variations sur le meme t'aime.

Continued with episode 1x03 of Ginny & Georgia, which has a substory with Katie's character Abby, something even her closest friends no nothing about.

Happy 23rd Birthday @Katie_E_Douglas !

I guess a rewatch of Level 16 is in order. Again... I seriously like that performance.

Katie Douglas in the film Level 16. Giving suspicious side eye. Hair tied back, but two loose strands fall over her face; actually appropriate for the character.

Gidi Kroon reshared this.



Today Katie Douglas turns 23! Happy Birthday!

Katie is an extremely talented actress. If you don't know her, she's the lead in Level 16, a great film with a great performance, or see her make a supporting role memorable in the tv series Defiance, Mary Kills People and Ginny & Georgia.

I found some photos of her in various roles and publicity shots.

Just finished 'binging' (spread over three days) season three of You on Netflix. It's no S2. It lacks the connection with reality the character Ellie was providing. It's my theory that viewers need another character to connect with if the narrator is a serial killer. #YouNetflix

2 people reshared this

Maybe the character Theo was meant to be that, but he was hardly in touch with reality himself. Anyway, they kept the Ellie storyline open so there is much hope for season 4. #YouNetflix

Content warning: linux evangelism rant

Gidi Kroon reshared this.

I kinda was one, but just on the basis "I have actual work to do, Windows is a preposterous joke, and I can't afford a big enough Mac to do what I need. So it's my Atari ST or this."
I knew one person who ran OS/2 Warp. He said it ran Windows apps better than pure Windows did and sometimes there's even a native OS/2 app you can run and that's neat, and that was the extent of his zealotry. =)

The thing happened again that happened before but for which I have no solution: /run on the server was full due to efs slowly filling it. Just remounting clears it, but some mounts are in use by applications so I can't just remount everything. Anyway, stopped the apps since they weren't responding anyway so I could remount all. Now the worker queue is handling the backlog.


Disappearing followers


!Friendica Support
I used to have a mutual connection between my Friendica account and my Mastodon and Pleroma accounts. Yesterday I noticed that on Friendica the accounts were listed as one-way, as if they were not following my Friendica account anymore. I confirmed that both on the Pleroma and the Mastodon server, my Friendica account was still listed as followed, but no posts were coming in. I've found that this has also happened with accounts that aren't me.

For my own accounts I have of course simply fixed it by doing a quick unfollow-follow. I'm trying to figure out what happened and whether it can happen again, but am not getting anywhere by looking in logs or db (am on recent stable, all up to date). Does anybody recognise this behaviour, or is this only on my server? Is there anything I can look at in the db to recognise which contacts are not followers anymore but no Undo-Follow activity was received? E.g. Pleroma stores all received activities.

Friendica Support reshared this.

@Michael Vogel Yes. I admit it is a rather niche use case. On an account that had been in use for a while, I imported contacts from a Pleroma export. Then some days later I imported contacts from a Mastodon export. These lists did contain duplicates, including some accounts that were also following me. These got their relationship changed; however, the good news is that this is apparently not happening 'randomly'.

I think line 2433 of Contact.php is to blame (line 2465 on develop):

$new_relation = (($contact['rel'] == self::FOLLOWER) ? self::FRIEND : self::SHARING);

This is executed for updating existing contacts in the import process. However, when the contact already has rel set to FRIEND, it gets reset to SHARING.
PR is added: https://github.com/friendica/friendica/pull/10896

Thanks for the deep look into the problem!

Now this app is claiming 'technical difficulties' when it can't find any matches for me. Wish I thought of that myself, not being able to find anyone and just blaming it on technical difficulties. Like Network Error.

Framasoft published this morning a donation campaign for 2022. I had the honor to fully illustrate it. You can flip more than thirty illustrated cards and discover this way this not-for-profit org.
Framasoft is really important to me. Pls support them💜
https://soutenir.framasoft.org/en/
Je propose d'en envoyer un exemplaire à Blanquer avec un mot insistant lourdement pour un don proportionnel à l'utilité de Framasoft pour l'Education Nationale. Ça devrait couvrir vos frais pour une décennie.
(Non, j'y crois pas)
Great work! While I don't have the financial means to support them right now, I can give a boost.

Top: Two pictures of a girl. To the left: wearing a black and blue striped dress. To the right: Wearing a yellow and white striped dress. Both pictures have a brightly lit and a darkly lit half.<br>Bottom: Same two pictures, with the stripes extended across from the brightly lit left dress to the darkly lit right dress, to show that the color values are exactly the same, even though the contexts make us perceive them as different.

Original: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/56179553 (2016-04-04)

The character is Nico Yazawa (矢澤にこ) from the anime and manga "Love Live!" (ラブライブ!). I have been unable to find who made the adaptation directly connecting the colors.

There was a gif four years back where someone cut out a piece on the left and dragged to the right for comparison:

Bad actors are abusing large, open-registration, low-moderation Mastodon instances in order to provide direction to the Vidar Stealer trojan horse, which steals passwords, credit card details, bitcoin wallets, etc.

If you run a large, open-registration, low-moderation instance, please consider changing at least one of those qualities.
