The week of people needing me to do things, but not needing to do things with me.

Why do my posts get like twice as many interacts when they have a typo in them come on

I'm pretty sure this common cold is an outcome of both a virus and two significant stressors this week.

Taking "why am I doing this" to unexplored new depths.

the LGBT standard was refreshed to LGBTQ and most recently LGBTQIA, but you may see the following proprietary extensions in older equipment:

LGBT 2000
LGBT for Workgroups
μLGBTQ (embedded only)
LGBTQ Creative Cloud

What's a good theme song for restarting every daemon on the platform at once? I don't think management would consider Ridin' With The Driver, Push It To The Limit, or even Sacred Serenity to be as positive as I might.

Yo! Ho! Ho! and a bottle of nog!

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.

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?

On this Labour Day 2018, let's think of all the women going into labour right about now.

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

Of the last thing I boosted, the whole thread really rounds it out.

Also, people will be people in any venue, apparently.

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 😊

Wanna watch a tech bro get antsy and twist in the wind?

Ask them to setup gpg signing for git, gpg authn for ssh and pkcs#11 for openvpn on ONE hardware token that's not a yubikey

Pain and panic and hilarity shall ensue.

Hack the 🌐

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: :)

I'd have an easier time in tech if I could be more uncritically enthusiastic.
