Fuck cars. Whats the point when everyone is a bitchy baby who slams on the brakes all the time.

Your taking the mobile out of automobile.

The whole point is for people to be forced to constantly accelerate.

Tonight, to my infinite satisfaction, I finally repaired my server.

It had been broken for a week, and every night I had dedicated several hours to trying to figure out what went wrong and how to repair it. The solution, when it came, was very simple, but finding it ultimately required that I learn more about how NextCloud and Linux work.

I pushed my understanding very, very hard, and coming to a solution makes me feel very good. I figure the people on mastodon.technology will understand! :)

Omg. Apple is finally requiring apps be granted notification permissions first in macOS Catalina. My Mac Notification Center has been an absolute trash heap. Thank goodness.

I used to look at code from other developers and think "Wow, this is so complex and way over my head. They must be so much better at this." Having done this for a bit now, I'm learning the complexity wasn't because of some higher skill level. It's a necessary evil far too often.

Sex was invented in 1782 by John Sex, who mistakenly fell upon his wife while bathing and was subsequently excommunicated by the Catholic Church

I have to stop going to bed at 9 AM. I’m never able to keep up with what day it is anymore.

If you use an app to access Mastodon, there's a good chance it's getting review-bombed right now.

Now would be a good time to give it an honest review, if you haven't already.

This is the #1 social networking app on the iOS App Store right now. How have people not learned to stop volunteering their personal info to every free thing that pops up?

The problem with your code is that it's doing exactly what you told it to do.

You said don't get on the bed. Technically, I'm not *on* the bed.

Anyone else think iOS 13's markup tools are way more confusing than in iOS 12?
