Did the new "move account" thing and AAAH that's a lot of new followers

No, not *next* Tuesday, *next* Tuesday. No no, that's *next* Tuesday. Not that, and not next Tuesday either. I meant *next* Tuesday. Not next Tuesday, not *next* Tuesday, and not *next* Tuesday either. *Next* Tuesday.

I knew my username would be impossible to say to someone, so I created a "professional" email address, but somehow firstname@nonsenseword.unusualdomain is hard too!

GitHub: maybe working with ICE is ok? Our employees won’t mind, right?

GitLab: Hold my beer.
