If software updates came with estimated install times, I'd be able to plan my life much better.

Me: "Have you heard about that ransomware that's going around? You really need to make sure your systems are patched."

Friend: "Can you come over and do that for us tomorrow morning? I'd really appreciate it."

Thanks, everybody. I didn't get that 'boost' is re-toot.

I see lots of toots 'boosted', while mine seem to be 'favourited' by others. Is there a difference, or is this just inconsistent terminology?

Oops -- just got the "something went wrong" Fail Mastodon. But is it appropriate for it to be held up by birds? Pterodactyls, perhaps?
