Pinned toot

Hi Mastodon, I killed my Twitter account a few weeks ago, and 15 minutes ago I pulled the plug on Facebook.

I wanna be your friend! We could talk about or or or maybe ? Maybe we could play frisbee and get a water-ice later?

How do I get into this scene?

Why did it take me so long to realize I can use a desk fan with a bubble wand?


Special kinda joy when I get to introduce my coworkers to Numbers Stations. I creeped my service manager out so badly, he stuck his fingers in his ears and ran back to his desk.

Solving the morning problems.

H: UUUGH Sun tea!
Me: Yep. I mean, I liked it as a kid?
H: It's just bullshit tho.
Me: Right, I recall at one point realizing that hot tap water was as good IF NOT BETTER.
H: We realized the lies of Sun tea at the same time, I think.
Me: Yeah, wait, was it when you moved to Humboldt?
H: ... yeah? Yeah! Gosh that's it! No Sun in fucking Humboldt?
Me: And me I was goth and ya know what doesn't happen when yer goth?
Both: SUN.

One method for processing animal bones in order to remove flesh is called cold maceration. But that is absolutely not what speech to text hears when you try to pronounce that word.

Anybody want to hazard a guess as to what Google /thinks/ it hears?

Someone snuck a bunch of interns into my office while I was concentrating on initial configs. I cursed "Oh fuckbutter" under my breath and this was apparently the funniest thing imaginable.

I've now got a sign under my door placard which reads "Mr. Fuckbutter." Might have to list that on my performance review for next year.

Live as Gen X, scene 1:

H: Hey.
Me: Uh?
H: ...Remember "Hootie?"
Me: Aw shit, Hootie. Man!
H: Yeah. Heh, yeah. Fucking Hootie.

So what's better for home networking needs? A full PoE switch, or a mult-port POE injector?

Thots, network people?

I came here as soon as I heard about Richard Stallman, and I find the fediverse response to be...

Well, TBH my standards are a bit higher when it comes to salt. No threats of violence? No painful hand wringing about death of society?
