On my way home. 13h39m for the day. And again tomorrow, I expect.

I've been at the office for 12 hours 42 minutes already. Currently waiting on the test suite to finish a full run so I can see what broke in places I _wasn't_ touching while I was fixing everything else. Once all _that_ is fixed, I'm going home.

Ha! I say that and then find someone selling 19x27 posters on Amazon.

I need to find a print of Luis Royo’s Fallen Angel somewhere. Preferably a big one.

put this on my grave pls

I used to have a playlist full of songs like that: things that really interacted well with my neuroemotional state when poured thru a large speaker. Sadly that was two platforms and an unrecoverable library corruption ago.

Oh, K Flay’s Giver plays well with the subwoofer.

And that posted just as I ran out of Kesha, of course. On to Taylor Swift, then some Halsey.

Coping mechanism of the now: alcohol and a 5.1 Sonos system playing Kesha too loud.

Perform one fucking miracle and they expect two more. Do it without demanding a raise and they’ll think they deserve it. What the hell was I thinking?

Putting peas in your mac & cheese is a goddamned war crime and I won’t stand for it

Ah and I totally forgot the #dailySketchChallenge, so let this be my entry for the topic "FORGET" ;D

The McRib never looks as good as advertised nor tastes as good as remembered, but sometimes you must.

But the lifecycle pattern of sites that provide free content posting services to the general public keeps repeating itself:
1) service opens, is exciting/different in some way, reaches new audiences
2) popularity grows, audience widens
3) business scrambles to make advertising keep up with growing costs
4) sacrifices made to platform that hurt users/devs and help corporate advertisers
5) site closes

Many see services like facebook/twitter as permanent, but I just see them as another friendster/myspace.

I joined Tumblr early on, and got the username "nate" in 2008. Since then I've been propositioned and even threatened by folks who wanted my username handed to them.
So maybe I'm one of the few who aren't too sad about Tumblr losing some popularity. Then again, I was never more than an infrequent visitor/poster.

We need to get past the point where the general public thinks you're a strange child for using end-to-end encrypted apps, such as Signal, even in the case when you're merely a concerned ordinary citizen who disagrees with illegal and uncontrolled mass surveillance.

honestly though, mastodon instances are run and moderated by real people who care about the network, to the point of often paying their own money out-of-pocket to run their instances.

the *one* time i've had to report a post, my instance admin messaged me directly to let me know the action taken about it.

don't be shy to report. it works here. the rules aren't there just to keep things advertiser-friendly.

welcome to mastodon. don't be a dick. hug your local mods/admins.

Decided to arrange a welcome for Tumblr refugees, so Toot! is 50% off on the App Store today! Grab it now if you haven't - this is literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, as any future sale will not be the same sale as this one, which is the Tumblr refugee sale.

Go go go! itunes.apple.com/app/toot/id12

It's a good client. It's the best client. Well, it is at least the client with the most secret easter egg games.
