It's just a fun game!
* love Mastodon federation of codes of conduct, server grey/blacklisting
* love CWs feature
* still bummed I can't opt in to global searchability for my toots. I search for ancient tweets all the time. Very useful, works great.
* Mastodon video uploads seem to be getting more popular, videos take forever to load if they ever do. Non-federated services 100x better for video sharing (so far?)
zomg my friend is a trolling genius. I sent https://mastodon.art/@welshpixie/105915231036777457 and he replied "I want that image as an NFT"

This thread via Darren Duncan: Yes, please credit me for the find, even more since you used my text word for word. You can also add that I said its Sisyphus episode 4 at the 18m0s mark to see this scene along with a bit of context. Also the character does actually speak the name Perl, even if Java is in the corner, and anyway the actual text on the screen is neither.
My coworker: Seems like they can't yet open the gates up to everyone, but there are enough Georgians who are anti-vaccine or covid deniers that they greatly loosened restrictions as of today.
My coworker: Georgia opened up vaccines to obese people today, and i've never been happier for my BMI score to be so high. First shot Wednesday!
Me: #jealous I'm sicking the High BMI Nebraskan Anti-Defamation League on Lincoln (state capital)
My friend: Lol. This is what I've been training for!
There’s this great new Korean drama on Netflix called Sisyphus whose main character is basically a technical genius. At one point he has to quickly code up a new app on his phone in order to authorize starting a car. This is the only time in the series I recall so far that he names a programming language, and it is #Perl.
Me on a big project: “why’d they set things up in this confusing way? Clearly I’m missing something and must not disturb it.”
Me on a small project: “Why’d I set things up in this confusing way? Oh that’s right I was in a stupid hurry. Fixing now.”
Good news: it looks like my art and my name is now removed from this NFT non-sens. 👍
