Hell yes.

From CBC BC - "In a stunning blow, the Federal Court of Appeals has quashed the government's approvals to build the Trans Mountain expansion project, handing a major victory to Indigenous groups and environmentalists opposed to the $7.4 billion project."

Learned that our parent company was bought out by Americans; my boss found out at a business conference he was at last week in Vegas.

Awesome.

Decided to generate a Skyrim character using random number generation courtesy of random-dot-org.

It uh... it went Full McElroy on me:

Extremely sorry about the downtime. Scaling up to multiple machines has revealed a peculiar issue with a scheduled process that's supposed to run every night... once. It was run on every machine instead, putting the database in a deadlock state.

We're back now and I'm going to add a fix before next night 😩

Special Thanks to @Texan_Reverend anyway for sitting in and giving me feedback on my audio levels <3

Oh well. Kinda burned through most of my streaming time today with executive dysfunction anyway so I'll try again tomorrow.

It's always the dumbest friggin' thing that trips me up, I stg.

Hey @Texan_Reverend you know what the issue was?

legitimately kind of grossed out by the transition from 'mostly a joke' to 'very serious take' re: following/follower ratio shaming. no one is entitled to attention from you of any kind. cultivate the timeline you want to engage with.

Now that the newest wave is getting into instance installation, it seems like a good time to point out that there is a friendly fork of mastodon that experiments with adding or enhancing features and functionality maintained by the talented glitchwitches of dev.glitch.social/ - code repo is at github.com/glitch-soc/mastodon #mastotips

Tip for newcomers: by design, you can't officially search for text in a toot. However, you can search for , which gives you a way to opt in to being found.

So if you write something with the intent of it being discoverable by other people interested in it, add a relevant tag or two so you can make it easier for people who share your interests to find you.
