i was burned out by the birdsite and abandoned my account there a couple of years ago.

when i found out about mastodon i joined up with .social and read a lot more about what federation was and how it works. i thought it was a great way to have a birdsite alternative without any corporate bs. now it feels so much more than that

i've always tinkered around with my own blogs and servers, it seemed only natural to start my own instance, and here we are!

hopefully years more of it

windows subsystem for linux (wsl) is generally pretty good but i always get a fright when i see all the files have 777 permissions

it would be nice to "do an app" that "makes money" but i'm "lazy" and "have no ideas"

is there anything less invigorating for the mind and soul than writing documentation

turning off the federated timeline for now, the takes on there often make my brain hurt

sometimes i miss the "lurk more" culture of early internet

this was also a good opportunity for me to test the discord bot i wrote to monitor webserver uptime

got a parking ticket even though i moved my car. now i have to go through the hassle of appealing it or just fork out the $82. parking limit inspector is a job for cruel people with no joy in their lives, too bastardly to be cops
