Looking for a new job!
I’m a software engineer with AWS experience and can write software in the following off the bat:
I’m a generalist, so I’m happy doing devops, development work or system architecture. I’m also more than able to learn new languages and tools to do my job.
I’m based in the UK, and I’m looking for fully remote roles!
Mental health and prayer apps are incredibly invasive when it comes to user #privacy. Some of them even keep transcripts of your conversations and sell those conversations to advertisers.
Lurch (the great dane) has been my best bud since we got him, and every time I would leave with just him, Copper, our younger husky, would throw a fit crying want to come along. He absolutely adores Lurch. So, I picked up another leash and s-biner to properly secure him in the bed so he can stand up, but can't get over the bed sides, and took him with me today while I ran some errands. He thought it was the greatest day ever getting to ride around with Lurch. #dogsofmastodon #pets #dogs
New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
It will take some work.
If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.
Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

I apologize, but I forgot to add a caption to the above image, but it's just a screenshot showing 10 of 18 parts of my Takeout, measuring about 50GB per part.
We might live out in the woods where the nearest Walmart is a half hour away and don't even think about a Starbucks unless you're willing to drive an hour, but with symmetric gigabit, no blocked ports and no data caps from our local co-op for $110 a month, I really can't complain about the internet speeds we get, :-)
I have yet to finish downloading all the bits and pieces, but my reason for doing a fresh one is that I've heard that, since my last one, Google's practices and policies have changed somewhat, Amazon sends less useful information in their email receipts, etc. So my intention is to compare my takeout from 2019 to this one from 2022. I still intend to do that, but with this much data, it might take a while...
So in light of the attention my previous posts regarding #Google data collection is getting, on the 28th I decided to do a fresh Google Takeout of my data, since the one in my posts is from like 2019. Since then I basically stopped using Google services; deleted all my e-mails/contacts and regularly clean out my spam folder, deleted all my photos and drive files. Despite all this, this new one is MASSIVE. My 2019 takeout is less than 7GB. My new one appears to be close to 1TB... #privacy
