@CiaraFaith hello there!
so we have accounts on different "instances" - mstdn.io vs mstdn.social, they're independent sites running the same software, otherwise it kinda works like Twitter but with better features.

Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!

Today is a beautiful day to reactivate my Mastodon account

Twitter about to become Musk Social.

I bet some of you are very happy to be on the fediverse right now. I know I am :)

Among the variants of the meme, my favorite is:

There are only two hard things in computer science:
0- cache invalidation
7- asynchronous call
1- naming things
2- off-by-one error

Violin is the worst video game ever. It runs terribly on my body hardware, has no built-in achievements or cloud saves, and none of the walkthroughs agree on anything. 7/10.

Daily CLI tip:

curl wttr.in/Belgrade

will give you weather for Belgrade (oe whatever city you pick)

Perhaps a better use of this evening/week would've been to start work on that job application earlier than 23:50, ten minutes before applications closed, instead of cleaning gunge from an oven I intend to throw away, but 🤷

I mean I thought "fitted oven" meant something more… _involved_ than "sitting in on oven-sized shelf, plugged into a regular old power socket".

To inform a plan to replace it, an experiment was carried out to discover how the oven was installed. In conclusion: it was not.

What is up with people posting a toot consisting only of a single :dank: and is it OK to automatically mute/block those people?

Yesterday, 26th of September was Stanislav Petrov Day.

A day to celebrate that you, me, everyone isn't nuclear vapour right now.
SP - disobeyed orders and military protocol, used his own thinking, and by doing so averted nuclear retaliation based on false alarms that would likely have caused a mass nuclear war in 1983.

Stanislav Petrov, often referred to as "The man who saved the world" died in December 2017

I've determined that the best storage solution for raspberries is to just eat them all as soon as you get home from the store.

Future UK relations with the EU

This useful diagram encapsulates the various country templates the UK could use, but probably WON'T, because of the stated objections.

The last agreement type is the currently much vaunted "Canada style".

Diagram was produced for Michel Barnier.
