🚨 No, Jorts is not on 3.0. I fucked up over the holidays and didn't get the updates to go through. That being said, at least one instance that theoretically shouldn't see us, seems to be able to see us. i'll try to update us this weekend, if i can get my shit together 🚨

@seafrog my suspicion is that jorts is so fundamentally broken that features which are supposed to make us not federate are straight up ignored

like the world's jankiest, rustiest, junker of a car, reeking of flood waters and none of the electronics do what they're supposed to do, but by odin not a single one of your ANTI CAR countermeasures do a godsdamned thing to it

@killeveryhetero ok i enjoy the metaphor but may i recommend: the grumpiest, mangiest, wonkiest horse. he will let u ride him, and sometimes he will go in the direction u want but it is a Lie and he will absolutely get in a hot air balloon and take u for a ride at the slightest whim of his janky little hooves

@seafrog to be honest i was somewhat specifically referring to my shitbucket honda civic i drove through floodwaters up to my doorhandles

all the electronics, one by one, winked off, including the radio, AC, and headlights, but the damned thing kept going until i got to high ground and waited for 5 minutes, at which point the electronics started coming back one by one in reverse order

now the AC settings buttons do random things instead of what they're meant to, and take effect 1 minute late

@killeveryhetero ok i fucking love ur honda civic and i would die for it

my partner has a mini and if u drive thru a big puddle then the fanbelt slips and the alternator stops charging the battery and all the electronics start going out :')) (or at least i think that's it, i am not good at cars) and i love it very much. in my mums car which i drove for a while, u have to take the fuse out at night or the battery runs down, and if u forget to put it back in the speedo doesnt work


@killeveryhetero old, janky, shitty cars that struggle on despite accumulating more and more dents and shortcircuits are the love of my life
