New blog post: Top 30 most shared Mastodon posts in 2018
Just went and posted this on Facebook. First post in a year.
"I haven't been on facebook a lot. I've been paring down my friend list and not logging in. I'm increasingly anti-thrilled at everything Facebook (links in followup comments). I will keep it because some things aren't published anywhere else, but I'm not logging in otherwise.
"I'm on Twitter as ChrWood and Mastodon as @cwood. It's nicer over there (Mastodon)."
I thought those 12 years of piano lessons were a waste until I discovered #emacs.
#mastodon federated timeline question.
It used to stop updating when I mousewheel-scrolled down but now if I scroll down I can see toots sneaking upward on my screen as fresh toots are added way up at the top.
Is there a preference to stop the federated timeline from updating after I scroll?
Impostor syndrome: The codebase I'm working on is so buggy... people are going to realize I'm not a real programmer
Lucifer syndrome: The codebase I'm working on is an intentional mockery of moral existence and if I ever think I've debugged the entire thing then that's just because I am part of the system that is intentionally designed to never recognize its own dysfunction in order to redouble its blasphemy
Take a fucking bow, folks.
I’m all for speaking truth to power but I don’t understand screaming your version of someone else’s reality into their face while they categorically deny it & profess support for your cause until you break them down. What I’ve seen here is nothing short of bullying. And no, it doesn’t make it right because he was on a TV show once.
Don’t @ me. Or do; I know where the block button is & mine’s wired to mew like a kitten… it’s just the cutest 🐈
I'm seeing some profiles of people who just came from #birdsite and their toots are just like how I remembered how defensive everyone had to be there while showing around how cool you are by sending infinite absurd tweets.
I'm never going back. Mastodon really feels like home. Knowing almost no one makes you search new friends here and this creates a cool friendly environment where no one's is better than anyone else. I made lots of friends here thanks to this and this feels more relaxed 😊
Some people get confused by software versions where the dot is not a decimal separator, and thus 2.8 -> 2.10 completely makes sense. But this is the first time I see someone completely losing his shit over this: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/1771#note_259944 :)
Also @ChrWood on Twitter.
