I'm not gonna act like I've made bank on Masto as I definitely can't make a living here, but I've gotten more commissions from people who weren't friends than I ever have with Twitter.

It's great when an algorithm isn't actively working against you.

Just typed `git marge`. Unsure if that means my repo should grow an enormous blue beehive or have margarine spread on it

Laser cutting is a lot of fun and also: not the solution to every problem

Ok. Not as bad as I thought. The vending machines in the break room take cards. Lunch will be expensive today, but at least I'll have something to eat.

When I was using GNOME I could easily access my Gmail account from a browser. You don't need a standalone app for that. The reason why I stopped using GNOME is that it keeps pushing some hidden corporate agenda, using corporate money. I care about my privacy and freedom more that I care about interface usability because I know how dangerous surveillance capitalism is. Exploiting non-tech-savvy people who have no idea about how modern tracking works is a shame.

Well... Today is going to suck. I forgot my lunch at home...

Just got home from my new job assembling sensors for aircraft and medical devices. I'm not as tired as I thought I would be, and so far, I really like the job.

It is imposible to hack me. I've set my password to "Windows rocks and mm/dd/yyyy is the best date-format", which is impossible for any hacker to type out without vomiting.

Well, may have just permanently lost my business. I purchased an item via ebay. It was supposed to charge to my paypal balance which had more than enough, but instead, the fuckers charged it to my bank acount. I'm now $77 in the hole, out of only $200 that I get per month!

The only way they're salvaging this is if they reimburse me for the over-draft fee they caused, and pay me something for the trouble they caused.

Holy crap it's cold today! Even my engine was screaming about it when I started the car. Dang near went past the red line.

I don't think it's felt this cold since when I was a kid.

皆さん、明けましておめでとうございます!
Happy New Year, everyone!

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as 2019 is, in fact, GNU/Year.

Anyone hear of a provider called Windscribe? Are they trustworthy? Any recommendations for another free VPN provider I can use to help avoid ?

I would pay, but I have no money.

Happy New Year, fediverse!

Here’s to working towards more freedom, justice, and equality in 2019. It’s not going to get any easier. It’s probably going to get harder. All that matters is we keep chipping away at the problem and working on the solutions. Every little thing we do, whether it’s raising awareness or reducing harm or creating ethical alternatives… it all matters.

Heck, the fact I can write this on the fediverse is reason enough to be hopeful.

Lots of love to you all :indieHeart:
