I've been on mastodon.social for a little over a year this point. Seen a lot of waves of newcomers and a lot of changes in the culture over that time.

Been feeling like things are a little too crowded on the local and not quite my niche anymore.

So I'm finally going to go do it and move to a different instance. Going over to hackers.town

See you all over there.

Whatever HR consultant comes in and just recommends unilaterally firing everyone who voiced a concern in the all-hands meeting sounds like a great find. 🤔

Half way through the Rust book.

Usually when I pick up a new language book, I read it deeply. Two or three passes on each chapter. Mark up things with notes. Type up all the example code.

I'm not actually sure I get much out of it.

How do people go for years typing on a laptop keyboard. I've been using my laptop keyboard for two months and my wrists are starting to kill me.

Going to need to go dig my mechanical keyboard out of storage just so I can hook it into the laptop.

I have gone through all the toots from last night and boosted the ones I liked.

My work is done for today. Now I can go outside and play.

“Counties with more trees and shrubs spend less on Medicare, study finds”


“the study adds to a growing body of evidence linking green space – in particular, forested areas – to better health outcomes for those living nearby.”

let's tear down the corporate silo landscape... together.

Got my new passport.

So I can flee when this place starts to crumble down around me.

@chuck or Pandora's algorithm? Seems like any musician you pick out it just ends up selecting two or three other musicians from around the same time period for the station and then that's all it will play for all eternity.

As if no other similar musicians have ever existed or will ever come into existence.

Starting to think I'm the only one who enjoys April Fools...

@Downes Could you summarize some of your philosophy in short statements like these: denizcemonduygu.com/philo/brow and link them in?
