It's actually a standalone server in the #fediverse, implementing #activitypub all by itself. 😃

I think my favorite thing about the fediverse is that it actually never feels like I'm screaming into a void. It feels like I'm thinking out loud to a group of strangers who, despite not knowing me, are supportive and interested in what I have to say.

Legend of #Zelda, the #WindWaker is making me solve a #TravellingSalesmanProblem. Well, a travelling waterboy problem, but same idea. I have to go around the world watering trees and I'm on a time limit.

Nobody tell me the solution. I'm actually considering writing a program to solve this.

mastodon error 

@status hiding an instance doesn't work (shows an empty column and produces an "unkown error" popup message) - any idea what the issue is?

Here, meet (some of) #TheBelmontGoats.

I had to make it an Instagram link because Mastodon wouldn’t let me upload the video.

dusting off rusty skills with calculus and summations to find the correct angles to make the keys in my weird homebrew keyboard conform to a smooth curve

feels good man

i wish that _any_ of the work i was paid to do over the past 20 years required me to get out paper and pencil and think hard

why can't my biggest challenge be research to solve some knotty problem rather than

convince the new computer thing to do what the old thing used to, by whatever heinous means necessary to meet deadline

awful pun 

If masto was misogynistic would it be called masco

ingestion, alcohol 

did you know that if your only calories for two days come from beer, cream soda, and chips you become much worse at programming? perhaps beer will help

Basil Exposition: A lot's happened since you've been frozen. The Cold War's over!
Austin Powers: All right! Finally those capitalist pigs will pay for their crimes, eh? Eh comrades? Eh?
Basil Exposition: Austin... we won.
Austin Powers: Oh, smashing, groovy, yay capitalism!

ingestion 

this is about the time I move from coffee to beer and start trying to convince myself to eat something today

pointlessly opinionated; vaguely political 

The term “rugged individualism” is a disturbingly complimentary way to describe “stone-faced callousness towards the suffering of others” and I’m beginning to get really prickly at how much it’s used unironically.

I just merged a new mastodon.el release that should hit MELPA shortly. It includes a notifications timeline and profiles. Huzzah!

tip for straight men: fight toxic masculinity by using heart emojis with your friends and telling friends that you love them without qualifying it with "no homo"

love, ur resident homo that fuckin loves their friends

So, when you're on unemployment there's this expectation to apply for a quite big amount of jobs a week. But like I've spent a week on writing a good cover letter for this one job... I feel like they may be going about it the wrong way at the unemployment office.

lol, amp. i noticed that a page would suddenly appear after 8 seconds of waiting if i disabled js, which seemed pretty weird.

turns out that there's a css3 anim to hide the page for 8 full seconds (that is skipped when the js loads ofc).

this is *required* by the amp standard. your page fails validation if you don't do this.

sure makes these goog results look kinda suspicious, huh
