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

It’s surprisingly common to encounter programmers who don’t really do very good work. Whether this is an issue of attitude or talent isn’t always so obvious. The end result in either case is ugly code that does the job. Working software is ultimately the only thing the customer cares about. When software fails, they want it fixed. They don’t question why it fails. They expect it to fail. That’s what computers do, because sloppy software is the norm, not an anomaly.

i figure you'd need to hook one of the boonta people and their mates, then the others would flock over

how do we get more australian folks to migrate from the bird site over to here? all the bird site users i know refuse to leave because of all the extremely online people and celebrities

i'm really, *really* getting into disco elysium

me: maybe i should replace redux with react context in this app that is redux'd to fuck and back
me, 5 minutes later: why did i decide to do this

can't tell if its just iOS 13 mail.app that suddenly sucks or if its something else but i seem to just not be getting notifications of emails for a few days at a time, until i open the app.

thankfully nothing critical but jeez.

auspol.cafe will be down for maintenance for about 5 minutes 👷 🚧

does it bother anyone else that the months that are named after numbers are the wrong number?

sept-ember is the 9th month
oct-ober is the 10th month
nov-ember is the 11th month
dec-ember is the 12th month

whats with that

i think possibly the best thing about the fediverse is that if you want to change something about your instance, you can either ask your admin or go spin your own one up.

nice to be able to make whatever small quality of life changes you'd like without having to get it through into everyone else's instances too

this phone just has an ethernet port labeled with a drawing of an ethernet port

took me long enough but i finally pinned the federated timeline to my homepage - great way to find new people to follow!
