Pinned oot

Hello all! I'm Greg Grossmeier (twitter: @ g_gerg). I'm new here! I like politics ( ) and technology (). I work at the Wikimedia Foundation managing the Release Engineering team. Can we be friends?

I forgot I was logged into this account on my mobile, fav'd a few things this morning. This should be my last post here. Toodles.

Dangit, I should have followed @eloquence earlier, now I might have to change mastodon instances :/

@liw I've found today: torsion.org/borgmatic/ Seems like a useful layer on top of (and something I'd like built in, if I'm not missing something).

So, now that @liw is sunsetting (<3) I'm taking a look at for my laptop+vps backups. Any config/setup recommendations?

Talk to me about Catalonia and if comparisons between them and Israel and anyone wanting an ethno-nationalist state are useful.

update:
tl;dr: Did the exact opposite of a float tank for about 30 minutes.

apparently we misunderstood each other when booking, I was supposed to be there last week. Also, they misheard my name so the confim email went to greg@grossmier.net (lost an e).

Instead, I laid under a rapidly changing LED light thingy that with your eyes closed basically gives you visuals like if you rub your closed eyes and see those patterns.

Was.... I wouldn't pay for it.

Oh good, you can fav your own toots. Feature set complete in my opinion.

sorry, I won't curse this much normally. I'm still sleep deprived and sick :P

I really hate it that one of the nearby state representatives sends out monthly "updates" that are just vacuous bullshit: "fire safety awarenes month", "breast cancer awareness week", blah blah fucking take a stand on anything.

Granted he is for "transparency in drug pricing" and even voted for CA's single payer bill, but failed to stand up for it when it was wrongfully tabled.

I'm going to do my first float tank float today. This is a bit odd but I've been curious for a while. I'm a meditator so I was hoping for "great meditation/relaxation experience". Sadly I'm also very very sleep deprived today and I'm afraid it's just going to be a very expensive nap. Good thing it's a livingsocial deal my wife got for me.
