Is your area impacted by wildfire smoke? Surgical and dusk masks will NOT protect you.
Choose a mask called a “particulate respirator” that has the word “NIOSH” and either “N95” or “P100” printed on it. More info here from @CAPublicHealth: http://www.bepreparedcalifornia.ca.gov/documents/protect%20your%20lungs%20respirator.pdf
Also seeing the continuation of what I noticed months ago -- with folks posting slightly more personal, introspective, less performative things here than on twitter. Still like it. :-)
Amazingly great episode of the Radio Free Skaro Podcast with special guests Helene Wecker, @HollyGoDarkly and @jsnell Realized that most peole on the podcast started watching Doctor Who before I was born… 😄
I've been idly thinking about setting aside App Launch Map and finding a "real" job. I wonder if I'm really qualified to do what I'm trying to do and if what I have to impart is valuable.
Then I watch a series of "developer insights" videos from Apple full of buzzwords and I realize that there really is a huge gap here.
Anyway. Hi I have imposter syndrome please buy my product when it launches.
A gentle reminder: follower/following ratios aren't generally considered important here. Please don't harass people for not following back everyone who follows them.
We aim to create an environment where the people you follow are the people whose posts you want to see. You should never feel obliged to follow anyone.
(We recommend at signup that you follow the instance admins - but that's just so you know what's going on and have some posts in your Home column to get you started.)
Just finished my only 2 panels of #Worldcon76. They both went well! Now I just have to stress about the Hugo Awards tomorrow. 😂 😭
Also just saw dozens and dozens (hundreds?) of bikes go past--many with sweet flashing neon lights, and some with sound systems and pumping music. San Jose, you're alright.
