I'm bombarded with news everywhere I go already, I don't need my queer tech club to be inundated with disasters too.

These news bots on the Federated timeline are so annoying. I have to block a new one every time I open this app

I don't know who you are, but if you're reading this you should stop reading Hacker News.

The worst thing is when non-tech people are like "this task is easy, it's just adding a few fields. shouldn't take you more than an hour".

Why don't you do it then?

My account was marked as a bot account this whole time for some reason. I swear I'm good with computers

it’s a beautiful day to give trans people money

I love that we're using C bindings in javascript to compile CSS now

One thing that annoys me about Mastodon's default UI is that it has a horizontal scrollbar on 1080p 16:9. The leftmost bar isn't very useful and there's lots of wasted space there, to add insult to injury.

Today I interviewed with what might be my dream job and it went incredibly well. I have another one tomorrow, and I hope it goes just as smooth.

A reminder to all creative people:

If the RIAA's recent actions have reminded us of anything, it's that you cannot guarantee you have a copy of any of your work unless you have backups of it on your own system.

Act accordingly.

Crowdfunding: my Black autistic friend needs money for food and rent; goal = $600; paypal or cashapp 

My friend MJ, who is Black and autistic, needs $400 for rent and $200 for food and transportation, or about $600 in all.

So far at $20/$600

Also, today is their birthday, so it would be nice if people donated for that?

The daily worry over never being able to land a job somewhere I would actually like to work is settling in. Sandwich time

Just applied for a web development position at Valve. Working there would be a literal dream come true, and I want this to happen more than anything else at the moment. Imagine working alongside the people who do cool shit like the Steam In-Home Streaming or the Steam Controller....... Wow

Ooh, filtering "@twitter.com" seems to hide all of those annoying quote tweets.
