A manager just came by my desk and introduced me by the wrong title to three people whose names I immediately forgot, but he didn't tell me what their positions were or anything. I suspect new hires??? Per policy, I hope to learn their names after 6 months of awkward conversations over coffee in the kitchen area.
My company does open source stuff but that doesn't mean we are your unpaid engineering department.
hot take: Masto should not focus on acquiring new users
it should focus on providing its users a safe, stable, reliable place to form a community, and allow users to join organically
trying to emulate other systems by incorporating their flaws is a terrible idea and guess against the whole ethos behind most people who came here
Taxes filed! Adult++

Is taxact.com evil? Asking for a me.
What's a non-evil (like H&R Block and Intuit are super evil) program that can help me do my us taxes this year?
It's not even my birthday.
What is this? An #Introduction ????
In meatspace I am normally called Jed, I am half of OokTech, a small engineering company I started with my brother. We make stuff, normally stuff that has some relation to accessibility (remote presence/tourism with robots, privacy respecting home automation) or video (360 video robots!!!). A lot of what we do uses open source hardware and software and most of what we make is open source.
We have a patreon page we need to make better https://www.patreon.com/OokTech
There are a bunch of tiny rooms in the new building labeled "Phone room." They have a simple desk, a phone, and two non-adjustable chairs. I am utterly baffled as to who needs these. They are kinda cozy, though.
Oh no, trapped
I had a really weird dream last night where I tried to get some guy's number (has literally never occurred in real life), but I had a flip phone from like 2004 and every number I typed in, it would type a weird symbol instead. So I tried to write it on a piece of paper instead, but I would keep writing the wrong numbers and scratching them out. Anyway, my brain is really not subtle about my inability to start romantic relationships.
In a complete and total win for our documentation today, I was trying to do a table join on two excel sheets where one sheet had first name and last name fields and the other had a full name field and when I looked up how to do a join calculation, it literally had my exact use case as the example.
