It’s really different from the other pride flags and I’m not sure I get all the symbolism but I like it

Is there any technology similar to Open Badges on the fediverse? I'm still trying to figure out how to use them, but think there could be some neat applications ("merit badges" for the robotics team I mentor, for instance)

Covid (+) 

The vaccine chooses the wizard! I got notified about an appointment available today, so I get to get my science stab early!

Sysadmin problems 

Yes I know I could use a pay service, but... I'd rather not. I'll just stay here for now.

Sysadmin problems 

Me: "I should set up a single-user mastodon instance for myself"
Mastodon: *requires a mail server*
Me: "Nope."

Work rant, git, bad practices 

Someone at work pushed a "fix" to my branch to cover up that they broke the master branch. The "fix" was to comment out the code that was broken. And they did it on my branch because it would take too long to clone the repository and do it on their own branch. This is the hell I'm dealing with today.

Normalize telling people at the gym that they're inspiring you to keep working out

And now, it's about to happen again. Every year, Duke University's James Boyle and Jennifer Jenkins document the treasures we are about to receive. 1925 is a bumper crop:

We're getting The Great Gatsby *and* Fats Waller; Woolf's Mrs Galloway and Hemingway's In Our Time; we're getting the Harlem Renaissance's peak, and the first year of The New Yorker. It's a good year!

(yeah, Mein Kampf is in there too)

Date (+) 

So I went on a second date with a really cute guy today. We hiked in a nature preserve! We have a ton in common and we don't want our dates to end, so that's a really good sign!

I played exactly one pickup tabletop game at a game store, ever

a guy got mad at me for using NSEW directions on a map in a fantasy setting because “they’d have different names for it” so I scribbled some shit and handed him a map that had the directions:

Morth
South (pronounced “sooth”)
Squeast
Thwest

he gave me the world’s dirtiest look and 5 minutes later when I described something as being “about ten bmiles morth by morthsqueast of here” he left the table and walked out of the shop

I never saw him again

What movie am I watching, from this quote? 

"Needs more... body."

Doctor Who, sad 

Which three words are sadder?
