I was just considering the implications of me having a north american copy of Splatoon 2 and now the lyrics “we’re the squids in america” are lodged firmly in my brain

I don't remember where I read this first, but it's something I've been trying to do over the last few years, and maybe you will like it, too: When you introduce two friends who you want to become friends (or introduce a new friend to a friend group) don't just say, "This is Beth. She and I went to school together," or whatever.

Instead, explain what it is about them that is unique and special; what it is that makes you spend the time and effort to maintain your relationship with them. Use it as an opportunity to embarrass and compliment the shit out of them by telling these new people why you think they're so awesome.

My reign of comedy terror continues, @ruth :

Devops Lead: Is anyone using proust [a server] for anything these days?
Me: I don’t think I am, but I’ve always been bad at the rememberance of things past…

someone is very pleased with the amount of fluff they've dropped

My wife, who is mean, has informed me (via cruel taunts) that I conflated gazpacho and garbanzo.

Why, yes, the terrible frat party under my office IS playing the horrible Edward Sheeran song, why do you ask?

🎵 I'm in love with a cold legume,
well, a bunch of them in a soup,
I'm in love with a cold legume.
I'm in love with gazpacho. 🎵

Mastodon newbie protip: don't click the "remote follow" button. Just copy the user's URL and paste it into the search bar of your home instance, then click the follow button (the little icon of a person with a "+" on it).

Not only is "remote follow" slower and more awkward; it's a potential security risk, because a malicious instance could trick you into giving them your password (if you're not paying attention to the URL bar).

The decline of #Livejournal is an important lesson about user #privacy on sites. Sure the site might be friendly today, but they might be bought out later and the new owners have all your old data.

There's a chance some Russian #LGBT people organised & hung out on #LJ 15 years ago, and now all that data is available to #Russia today 😨

These tech companies are keeping all our data forever (to make money), and it's a bad thing.
