If I interact with your toots, it's usually because I think you're neat and I want to be friends.

Oh, hi new followers! Maybe now is a good time for ?

I'm an Icelandic geek who sometimes lives in Italy.

I mostly toot about , , , (or ), , and my work: and .

Sometimes my account is taken over by Mr. Tradomat, a bot who posts confused rants about arbitrage.

I'm not always serious, but it can be hard to tell.

So far, my main disappointment with my new job, is that .is has no MX records.

So I almost certainly won't get the e-mail address bre@is.

I don't think they'll let me change that. ๐Ÿ˜ข

I visited my employer-to-be this morning, and signed a trial contract for the first 3 months.

I think that means I can now safely announce that I'm about to become an employee of ISNIC: the .is domain registry.

It's a funny little company!

In addition to .is, they manage the Reykjavik Internet Exchange (an ISP peering point) and run a few oddball Icelandic web services.

I start next week. Exciting!

@pamela Thank you for asking that! My take:

In tech, we're so used to constantly pissing all over other peoples' hard work, that this sort of framing does indeed pass as normal.

It's kinda tragic.

A lot of tech IS very frustrating though, and making things less frustrating does drive a bunch of positive change.

But the way we indulge and coddle those negative feelings and expressions is something I for one would like to see change.

"It aims to be faster, simpler, leaner, and more useful than IPsec, while avoiding the massive headache."

Why is tech like this? Why is this type of framing normal?

The high-quality snake-oil salesman prides himself on his free-range, non-GMO snakes.

If you replace all carcinogens in your diet with his oil, you'll reap many health benefits!

If you also follow his recommendations on how to exercise and mediate, even better!

It's an amazing product. ๐Ÿ˜

It's so frustrating when people pull rank in Twitter arguments, but no matter how hard I try, I just can't fit my biography in 280 characters to prove them wrong. ๐Ÿ˜œ

I can neither confirm nor deny that creating a `hacks/fakedates` command in my local has anything to do with communicating with the local tax authorities.

listen to femmes when they tell you they are uncomfortable with the way cis men interact with them perhaps ?

I enjoy having friendly debates with people who disagree with me.

I also enjoy blocking or muting people who become abusive.

There's just so much to enjoy on this website! ๐Ÿ˜

I am pretty sure my router is blocking ARP, making the LAN almost useless.

No idea how to fix this.

What's all this about clout?

Am I finally going to get a single number that tells me how influential a tootinater I am?

I can't wait! I've got all these sponsorships just lined up...

Dammit, I just realized there's a bug in how I cut my hair earlier today.

The git revert for haircuts takes months.

I am now the proud owner of the domain nagging.website.

Now to see whether life lets me get this done...
