Noticed other people doing , so I might as well toss my metaphorical hat into the metaphorical ring.

I'm Yossi, aka Yossipossi. I'm an author for the SCP Wiki (scpwiki.com) and I do a bunch of random shit for hobbies. Politically left, though I don't talk about it publicly much. I joined here recently from Twitter 'cause, well, y'know.

Hope I'll be able to enjoy my time here! 😄

has anyone yet referred to rustaceans as the cargo cult? feels like that's an obvious joke to be made

why am I hyperfixating on this stupid programming language i could be doing by finals but instead im browsing the rust iterator docs looking at the methods

>happily informing friend that rust's package manager is built-in

oh no. it's begun.

What is up Mastodon nation, I just came back from a three-day-long holiday and I am AWAKE AS *FUCK*

One month into learning Rust. My beard has fallen off and my skin is silky smooth. I can feel the pronouns disintegrate from my body as the Err that is my gender is handled elegantly. I fear I may not have much time left before the Rust Dev Team sends me cat ears and thigh highs in the mail. Send help.

if you're wondering why inflation hasn't led to more Gecs (say, 108 or 109), you have to remember that Gecs are pegged to the US Dollar, and remain stable at 100

Like, don't get me wrong, it's CLEARLY inspired by SCP. But the game actually *feels* like a modernized version of Half Life 1.

I'm only part-way into Control, but it feels way more like a half-life mod turned game than something SCP-inspired.

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

if you were wondering what happens when oulipo.social (doesn't allow the letter E) meets dolphin.town (only allows the letter E): dolphin.town/users/e/updates/2

FYI for newbies 

Twitter has algorithms to get you engaged. Mastodon does not. So in order to enjoy Mastodon you have to take some time to reach out and find content and follow folks that you enjoy. Don't expect Mastodon to send you random popular posts to keep you engaged, you have to curate your own feed. But this is good! It gives you control.

My favorite part of youtube is checking the comments on a video on an SCP I've never even heard of at +34 and at least one guy will always be like "OMG THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE OF ALL TIME THANK YOU FOR DOING A VIDEO ON IT". Really nice :)
