I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account.

It's the Admin's instance, so I fully support their choice to eliminate a source of frustration, but something to consider: a person who is doing nothing wrong can be run off one instance by a mob from another instance. That seems ... not cool. 1/x

In case this appeals to anyone, I just tweaked my Wheel of Side Projects into a Wheel of Oblique Strategies

Glad to see purity tests are alive and well on Mastodon

Description:On August 29, 1997, at 2:14 AM, EST, Skynet becomes self-aware. Happy Judgement Day!

Ah crap, I got Viscount (because of course)

Today's distraction at work: bestowing increasingly-potentially-real title upon co-workers. I have avoided a title thus far, but an Inquisitor has been named.
Someone is researching where and how to get a real title.
We are not good employees

Joining the network team here must be like accidentally being allowed into Hogwarts.
"Oh, you're here. Uhm, so yeah, magic is real, we use it like this, and you have 2 weeks to figure it out."

Sigh. Didn't get the job. I'll be glad in a month, but...

I just saw someone put a photo of the moon behind a CW and wtf?

Serious question raised by @briancors: how is Mastodon going to deal with the inevitable trolls who impersonate people on secondary instances?

New PC up and running. Chickened out on a CustoMac

Oh. Right. You have to put the mobo back plane on before you install it in the case. Oops.

Please don't demand content warnings from strangers. Content warnings are a sort of social contract between an author and their followers; if you are not happy with how someone chooses to use them, do not follow that person or outright mute them, or mute words.

One of the most alienating experiences on Mastodon I've observed is when someone posts about something they're passionate about or is part of their identity and the first response is "please cw that" from a complete stranger.


And, of course, tooting that means it was out of date. Case is in a FedEx DC in Ohio, so at least two more days. Le sigh.

I have everything for my new PC.... except the case. It is somewhere between here and California, stuck in a truck

Life would be so much better if one night a week we got a 24 hour night instead of a 12 hour one

Someone on my street is getting BAKED 🌿

I'm pretty sure this is first time we've had the windows in house open in months. Aaaaaahhh
