I've converted that stream of posts I sent out yesterday, in response to your questions concerning @Gargron 's dream for a widely adopted #Mastodon, into a more readable format.
I really miss #dst :(
Power User: knows the shortcuts, knows how to script, has rebuilt the config files in their image
Wisdom User: Finds something open source that works *mostly* the way they want to first, and builds supporting tools so that they barely have to touch it.
Courage User: I FOUND A VB.NET THING SOMEONE POSTED ON THIS FORUM THAT DOES EXACTLY WHAT I NEED, AND IT WILL BE A PERMANENT PART OF MY PROCESS.
That feeling you get when you're working with a tracked changes file and the layered changes are an order of magnatude greater than the original document. How is this how things are done!!!
I miss #git :(

My manager: Alex, why is half of this critical document missing?
Me: Damn you muscle memory!
Now that my blog has been successfully transferred to #hugo, I took the time to write a brief entry on my experience leading up to the 2018 Autumn Lisp Game Jam.
Be forewarned, this entry has little to no technical substance. It is a story of how I came to use the technology I did and where the concept of the game came from
Update: got some feedback from friends had a few your(s) which became you're(s)
