I'm really sad in a way that I keep forgetting about Mastodon. There are so many things to like about it, but I never remember to go check. 😞

Today's XKCD pretty much hits all software "engineering" on the head.


You know you're having a rough patch when the song in your head is the opening overture from Les Misérables.

"Look down / Look down..."

"I have made this longer than usual because I have not had time to make it shorter." -- Blaise Pascal.

Writing, man. So hard. So many times I've sat down to write something and wound up realizing I had no idea what I was really trying to say...

The definition of restraint: walking in to Harbor Freight to buy two moving blankets and walking out with two moving blankets and nothing else.

What're folks using for cross-posting from here these days? IFTTT? Something else? Trying to figure out how to streamline my randomness. :)

So I've made a Fluid app instance for Mastodon, but I still can't quite get the "Getting Started" panel out of the way. Grr.

How have I never spent more time in Seattle? This is really nice (admittedly I'm in South Lake Union, so there's that).

"A new life awaits you in the Mastodon servers. The chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure"

So I can't tell. Is this the new app.net or the new Slack?

First post! Wait, is that how this thing works?
