By way of , I use Mastodon wrong. I use Twitter wrong in the same way. I'm usually a half day behind, but I try to read everything I subscribe to. That also means I'm not necessarily interacting in real time. I lurk, like and boost many hours later.

But me, I manage some software dev people for a fin data firm. I play music and try to build things for hobby time. I read comic books and novels. Interested in art, technology, writers and voice actors.

How I learned to do the stuff I do
❌ School
❌ Uni
✅ Screwing around on my computer

Information security training at work. Showing me an e-mail message, asking me to click on suspicious things. The parts of the header that are wrong aren't clickable and I'm going insane!

Information security training at work. Trying to tell me that a sticky note with a phone number can't be a security threat. Seems spurious at best.

If I've unfollowed you, I've started following you from a different account. Separating, maybe consolidating later.

Y'all can stop panicking. I ate at IHOP this morning. I can attest that their signage has not changed. I ate pancakes, like I'd expect to.

While there is a difference between mistreating a girlfriend, and mistreating an employee. I point out the part where said girlfriend became an employee. If a line will need to be drawn around metoo, THIS is NOT that line.

I just have to say this... Cameras are needed on NYC subway cars. The buses have them.
