I had to block some external instances on Masto.host shared hosting.
Here is why and how that can be reverted: https://masto.host/i-had-to-block-some-external-instances/
This was a tricky decision but couldn't think of a better solution.
If you have any suggestions, please do let me know.
@Gargron was it you? Oh, turns out it was me 😐
I've just discovered that our office has a machine that enables us to communicate to the 1990's -- kind of like the Phone Wave in Steins;Gate -- only instead of sending text messages, you have to feed sheets of paper through it and new messages arrive on sheets of paper.
They call it a 'Fax machine'.
Don't tell SERN, obvs.
While trying to import a PEM certificate into an application, I foolishly opened the unencrypted keyfile in notepad.
Notepad then crashed -- I've never seen that happen before -- and Windows immediately popped up "Reporting the problem to Microsoft", which I must assume includes the contents of the file I had opened.
So that certificate is now revoked and I still need to set this up but probably not using Windows.
Developer Tools Rage
Me: Okay, I guess this is happening, let's install Android Studio...
Me: Shit, that's big.
Android Studio: Your SDK is missing.
Me: Is it? Where should it be?
Android Studio: It's missing.
Me: Where do I get it?
Android Studio: Tell me where the fucking SDK is!
Me: Where the hell do they come from!?!
Android Studio: Oh, I can download it after all; it's 1.11 GB.
Me: I already hate you.
Android Studio: Wait 'til you try and run the emulator...
Seems like all my emails are about security problems and updates, today. https://mastodon.social/media/GFdgjmBwh2ns1QNGYjE

It seems that, my robot, @tooty is struggling at times.
Well, not struggling, just bouncing off the quota limits of web fetches, processor time, and data transfer for Google Apps Script.
I could mitigate most of this if URL Fetch supported HEAD requests, but I guess I'll have to re-implement on a real server, instead.
Google's 'dots don't count' in email addresses rule can be a pain. I recently got somebody else's email confirmation of a subscription to a fishing website, complete with their home address and t-shirt size.
I only have this person's postal address, so I ordered them a custom t-shirt printed with "I gave the wrong email address", gift-wrapped, with an explanatory message.
I hope they have a sense of humour. https://mastodon.social/media/emiPxLQiNiFS75UQH_k
Windows 10 complains and swears
1. Windows is very upset that virus definitions are out of date.
2. Definitions cannot update because "another installer is running".
3. Windows Reader pops up as newly installed, despite uninstalling it in the past.
5. Definitions still can't update; another installer is running.
6. GOTO 4.
7. I can sleep.
## ERROR: Unreachable instruction on line 7. Install another OS or buy a Mac. ##
## Fuck you, user; That's why. ##
I can't help but regret that I have not yet developed any special moves in real life.
I need an owl.
Just got booted from #splatoon2 splatfest matches due to planned server maintenance.
I am disappointed that they would plan maintenance during a planned in game event.
I'd like a Mastodon equivalent of my twitter bot (@crunchywatch_uk https://twitter.com/crunchywatch_uk) to follow, but I don't think everything it will post will quite be within the mastodon.social rules, so perhaps it needs it's own single-user instance...
