I found a gross bug in Mastonaut and now I’m feeling terrible lol

At least now it’s fixed.

Which is shit because I'm working on a Mastonaut feature that relies on me being able to fetch lots of data from the instances :thonkan:

Tracerouting to these bad websites does get me somewhere, but it turns into triple stars after a few hops…

Fucking hell, my internet is so shit. I can use some websites just fine, but some others are absolutely unreachable. It's not a DNS issue, I can't even telnet to the IP address…

Thankfully it wasn’t enough oil to be dangerous, but holy shit.

So I put my frying pan that had a bit of cooking oil left from the last time I used it (two days ago) on the stove, turned it on, and went to use the toilet quickly while it heated up. When I came back it was LITERALLY ON FIRE WTF

lewd joke 

So this evening I’m driving to Westhavelland for an astronomy meetup and I’m so exited. πŸ”­πŸ€©

Car rental companies are so mean. You never get the car you pick. I get that it says β€œor similar”, but I have NEVER gotten the exact model they advertised. As far as I know they don’t even have those cars in their fleet.

Damn when I finally get to *upload* a picture to use in some form of document (meaning I can choose a very nice one) they print it in a way that makes me look like a lo-fi hologram of myself.

US emergency sirens be like: wawawawa

European emergency sirens be like: EEEEH-OOOOH-EEEEH-OOOOH

It’s always a mix of awkward and hilarious when you find out someone you have never ever heard of, but that has quite a following on Twitter, has blocked you.


Competing chants: 'save our democracy / stop the coup' have merged into call and response.

this goddamm otter is back yelling outside my window. ur cute but leave me alone I'm sleepy

Honestly, I should just plan a quick trip to a dark place nearby...

And today I surveyed a spot in Berlin from where I can clearly see Saturn. The only problem is the light pollution. I’ve bought a light-pollution filter, and we’ll see how much that helps.

Last night I spent some time outside on my balcony and managed to spot and then IMAGE Neptune using my tiny bit mighty Maksutov telescope. 🌌
