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.

I think I forgot to mention that the other interview also went incredibly well, and I'm waiting for the decision. Hopefully they'll hire me!

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.

The 'cloud' is someone else's computer, and there is ample evidence that the someone else who owns that computer does not care at all about the hours of passion you've poured into things you make.

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.

Cross-posting from Twitter should be banned.

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
