Hey Internet, where should I go to grab a beer?
😈 making our network shittier, one device at a time!
Finished an old project this weekend that had been sitting untouched on the shelf for months!
😜 Feels good (even if the project itself was pretty dumb)
I feel like my federated timeline is trending toward homogeneity. I guess I don't follow that many people, but more than ever it seems like the content I see is dominated by the few folks who post a _ton_ of crap. And that kind of sucks because the occasional one-off toot by the folks who don't post often tends to be far more interesting (at least to me.)
Perhaps I just need to follow more people. But that doesn't address the issue that Mastodon fundamentally has a huge discoverability problem.

Sometimes crummy weather is just another excuse to eat well:
my lesson from today: lose the casserole dish -- if you have a deep enough cast-iron pan you can just build the pie right in there.
why can't all my roommates just get along?
I've had nothing but good experiences today with WiringPi and hardkernel's fork to support the various odroids. What a great little library.
my elbow just received a not-so-friendly reminder that this heatsink is, in fact, AC hot 😒
I've had U2's "where the streets have no name" stuck in my head for like 2 weeks.
There's something about the whole 🎶 "I want to feel sunlight on my face" 🎶 thing that really resonates with me after these first few weeks of crappy fall weather. Also it's just a nice song.
thinking about setting up a personal-knowledgebase-thing using a wiki, but I've personally only ever administered mediawikis. That was years ago, and also Tikiwiki looks promising 😩
Hey #mastoadmin folks, remember please that it's now ESSENTIAL that you run the Rake task to remove remote media on a regular basis, since the size limit on videos has increased from 8MB to 40MB and a lot of people are using the hell out of that.
Also, the default duration for keeping remote media is 7 days; you can change that with an environment variable. To reduce it to 3 days, for example, run:
RAILS_ENV=production NUM_DAYS=3 bundle exec rails rake mastodon:media:remove_remote
TIL: a little bit of harissa can do amazing things for an otherwise boring egg sandwich
first toot from the new place!
spent all weekend moving and the new apt is still pretty boxy. But progress was made!
well, I have confirmed that more alcohol does _not_ fix bizarre tcl/modelsim comp issues.
literally runs on dunkin.
small, relaxed instance for friends
