So I'm still trying to not post politics and news stuff here.

But fwiw, dear trans folks: I like you and think you're all cute.

What if Angry Birds was about Twitter all this time? 🤔

Just revived an old account I made a year ago - follow @accessibility for developments in @Mastodon's journey to an inclusive web app

(N.B.: this isn't about CWs, or even Mastodon interactions. Just something that just happened.)

I really, really appreciate when people I trust take me aside and let me know that, despite good intentions, I've fucked up in words or tones or even asks.

It's gonna happen; it happens to everyone. I'm glad that I have friends whose hearts I know and who know mine, and together we can reach a deeper understanding when we have problems.

RT @doniveson@twitter.com: The role cities play in building our nation is clear and mandated by voters. The recent news of interference in the #yyz election by the Ontario gov is alarming & flies in the face of local democracy: theglobeandmail.com/business/c #CDNmuni #CDNpoli #onpoli #yegcc 🇨🇦

Choose life. Choose a motherboard. Choose an OS. Choose an ergonomic mouse. Choose a fucking big desk. Choose loud speakers, social media and chat protocols, clients, and platforms. Choose good snacks, low in trans fat, and good key switches. Choose a high-density SSD. Choose a good chassis. Choose your friends. Choose a gamer chair and comfortable pyjamas. Choose a keyboard from Newegg n-key rollover purchase in a range of fucking colours. Choose shitposting and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that chair watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing YouTube videos, stuffing fucking takeaways into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, weighing 600 pounds and not having seen the sun in 3 months. Choose your future.

Choose life.

But why would I want to do a thing like that?

Reading about Ownership and Stack-Only Data in The Programming Language book, and thought “A type can be either Copy or Drop-y”, and this is why I don’t write documentation for a living. 🙂

Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!

(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! 😄)

Novelty account recommendations? Specifically, personifications of things like cities, weather and animals.
