10 year Whiskey because I just submitted a nice patchset to a project. Good excuse?

In other news, I'm leaning hard into High-school era indie bands today. Brand New, anyone? Bright Eyes? Maybe some Jimmy?

COVID 

Scheduled my first shot today. Feels a bit like a weight is lifted; I will worry less about bringing it home to the people I love.

Thank you, science <3

@dendy

That's a fantastic answer, thank you!

I'm interested only from a curiosity and tinkering standpoint; I don't have any other friends that use mastodon (to my knowledge) so it would probably not become anything more.

Who knows if it'll end up happening or not, though. plenty of other things on the "to-tinker-with" list :D

@dendy

If you don't mind me asking, what prompted you to set up your own instance? Other than control, is there a benefit? Was it difficult?

@dendy

I noticed that super quickly once starting to poke around here. Even though I jumped on larger instances, seeing how easily people moved to other, smaller, more curated instances to get away from the rabble is always really heartening.

@a_breakin_glass Fighting to stay focused for the last bits of my work day. How are you?

@dendy I completely agree- things here are a nicer pace. And, best of all, easier to get rid of the stuff that ruins that.

It's kind of a wake-up call, honestly, about how easy it's been for the current team (myself included) to sit on our launched codebase and not have to think about how we can bring newer ideas and patterns in to improve what we've got.

We hired a new engineer lately, and it's really refreshing. He's bringing some great, newer perspective to the team and is helping drive adoption of some newer language features.

I don't think it's limited just to Tech, unfortunately. It's hard to find a good community centered around a shared interest that doesn't end up devolving into something.... else. :/

@dendy

I've never managed to get the appeal of Twitter, though I stuck with it for a long while. Ditching it was a good move.

I don't think I can go back to twitter. The whole aura, atmosphere something I can't relate anymore and makes me kinda anxious. I'm happy to have left that behind. It was truly making me unhappy

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
