I think my XPS still doesn’t have an os installed. Recommend to me an OS that isn’t mac or windows, and doesn’t involve that torvalds shite, and also has WiFi card drivers for my XPS plz?

So do people have mastodon accounts on multiple instance, or are you meant to have like one home instance and just follow people from whichever instance?

THIS IS THE SONG FROM JOHNNY ENGLISH THAT I COULD NOT REMEMBER OR FIND ANYWHERE THANKS SO MUCH @uve@witches.town FOR FINDING IT FOR ME! open.spotify.com/track/0jIa8Bc

I'm extremely productive in Python, and the google cloud libraries are just magic. Don't even have to manually deal with auth. I built a big system (for a one-dev thing, and actually I'm a developer advocate anyway) including pubsub, cloud sql, storage, and container engine today in a couple of hours.

on your cost center. Hope you've got $$$" - me just now

ok but on the real huge welcome to everyone joining masto today, you're joining a community that still has a pretty big amount of work to do but the work that we do here actually leads somewhere

Google should really have a one click deploy button for Cloud Functions from Gists or something. I would 100% use it.

I’m trying out an app called Amaroq, it seems pretty good.

Hjällå there, time. I'm a developer advocate at that Spotify company, getting all up in other peoples code and making APIs & SDKs good for YOU. I do it because it was so useful for me in the early bits of my career, and I want other people to get what I had. Outside of work, I work. Seriously, I'm at work now, working on a Saturday night. It's not work's fault though, I just enjoy it. Spotify's great. I also try and lära mig som Svenska, men jag är jättedåligt.

I did at one point join some other mastodon, but I have no idea which one, nor what became of it.

What’s a good native iOS client for this fine website?

Intended to go to work at like 11, instead had a 3h nap. Probably for the best, but going into work now :)
