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.

Like seriously, are people not tired of posting common sense as "hot takes" yet? You're really not that special for thinking rap is bad

The amount of boomer crap I see on this website has increased substantially since last year. Fortunately now I just block annoying people immediately, so it's not that big of a deal

I get to learn about Dataloader now. Avoiding N+1 queries is fun.

I initialized my Phoenix application with the wrong name. Maybe I'll just call my startup that instead

I wouldn't mind bots as much if they managed to at least be interesting. Most of the ones I've seen look like redditor parodies.

On a good note, I did a bit of work for my new project today. Fixed the test suite, added CI integration and finished up a new module. Gonna work on the appointments module tomorrow, and maybe write tests for authentication and password verification.

Thinking about the pathetic parasocial experiment Riot Games pulled off with their Totally-Not-Sona character. Bad future

Among us, but it's a text adventure running on a terminal.

Is there a way to stop someone from showing up in my local / federated timeline without blocking them?

I shouldn't have to sully my profile by putting #nobot in it the bots should just have the courtesy to shut the fuck up

I'm also enjoying a lot more this time. It's funny how things are more enjoyable when you take the time to read about what you're doing.

Mindfuck of the day was finding out you can pipe things into expressions (like case/if/cond). Something ridiculously useful I wish had.

Started a new project today. It would be cool if it took off, because it's something that can start rather simple and become as complex as customers want.
