After careful consideration of my past 20 years, I can quite comfortably say I still have no idea what I'm doing

Yup. Getting involved with computers was a terrible mistake. I should have been a carpenter

To be honest completing ACME challenges always feels like some sort of spy mission

I am sure there's a hidden message somewhere in the pattern created by the green dots ... 😉


I'm so good at SQL, the ladies call me Indiana Joins.

I am not abandoning Patreon by any means but if you previously had qualms with Patreon as a proprietary platform, Mastodon now has a team on Liberapay: liberapay.com/Mastodon/

I also have a personal account that some people already pledged to before I signed up, I don't know how to deal with that, but here you go (it's linked from the team)

can't believe they called it "the iliad" and not "troy story"

Back to back github outage days make me happy.

I'm willing to take ownership of any mastodon instance if some admin cannot continue or doesn't feel like it. (like, for free and without too many changes)

Excluding single user instances ofc, but I think if it's an open one users should come first anyway, and admins should have a proper way out without telling everyone to leave.
