Finally figuring out how Mastodon works. Thanks, Leslie Patricelli!
Today I deactivated my Twitter account.
I was on Twitter for more than 11 years, and had a verified account with 30,000+ followers.
I visited their office when they were 20 people (meeting with Ev) and again when they were 3,000 people.
It is such a relief to get rid of something that has turned into one giant plastered-with-ads-and-forcefed-clickbait mess of harassment, bots and Nazis that is steered by a spine- and clueless leadership team.
Hi again, Mastodon! 👋 #deactiday
hoooo boy, I shouldn't have touched that domain's NA/SOA records .. should not have done that
just saw a massive twitter thread about how mastodon is bad because it's hard to build a brand or an audience on here and hahaha bitch exactly
The Java GDPR compliance : disconnect from internet 🙃
So until now I knew that WSL is slow, but I could not really put numbers on it. A rails test suite runs in ~1 minute under Linux (dual boot) on the Razer Blade Stealth and takes ~3 minutes running under WSL on the same machine.
(My mid 2011 iMac takes ~2 min, btw.)
So I wrote a thing for ThoughtWorks about Twitter, transition, and technology. https://www.thoughtworks.com/insights/blog/technology-changed-my-life
Our own @effye is recounting her experience behind her journey towards her inner self in this fantastic article: https://www.thoughtworks.com/insights/blog/technology-changed-my-life
It has brought tears to my eyes, and I'm grateful to get a chance to work with her.
just a reminder: nazis will actually get banned here if you report them

basically, on twitter:
- mastodon has no rules let's all go there
- fuck they do we'll conquer it who do they think they are
- fuck they banned me again mastodon will be dead in a week
you can taste the salt and it's delicious
best toot yet literally goes like "shit we went there to shit on lgbt people and they're the admins" and it's so funny
Bex Taylor-Klaus makes me so happy. <3
"You are enough. Your clothing choices do not define you, or your gender. It’s easy to fall into the trap of “am I [queer/trans/fill-in-the-blank] enough.” You are. Simply by being you and living your truth. Remind yourself today that YOU. ARE. ENOUGH. Even if you’re feeling lost and out of place. Go to a mirror. Remind yourself you’re worth it. Say it enough times that you start to believe it. Be kind to yourself 🖤"

I don't know anything about Oracle except that it's not surprising that submitting my cookie preferences "may take up to a few minutes to process".
Also, the ACME (v2!!) provider for Terraform is now officially supported by Hashicorp! 😍 https://github.com/terraform-providers/terraform-provider-acme
Let's Encrypt certificates using Terraform, including renewal etc. without the hassle of having to install a third party binary ❤️
