I wish computers were as fast as people think they are.

I don't deserve to live in a world where my phone can magically pull up "Pride & Joy" uptuned to E so I can noodle along to Stevie Ray Vaughan with my guitar, but I'll gratefully accept it.

Do you enjoy following someone's own posts, but they boost a lot of stuff you don't care about?

Did you know you can just mute their boosts without muting their posts?

1. Go to their profile page

2. Click on the menu button (the three dots in a column)

3. Click on "Hide boosts from..."

(Note: this only works with Mastodon accounts.)

I'm grateful for this weekend:

1. Found a good, free live stream to enjoy the 24 Hours of Le Mans ๐Ÿ

2. Spent some quality time making an assessment of where I'm going in life, and I now have some goals to look forward to ๐ŸŽฏ

3. Got to enjoy a more restful Sunday than normal, which will hopefully prime me for the week ahead ๐Ÿ˜ด

The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

For legacy reasons, everyone's name starts with "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;".

My Akonadi database is nearly the size of my entire Fedora install.

Huh, I might not have enough room to create a VM to practice making my own mail server, because my partition is filled up with email ๐Ÿ˜‘

I could be wrong, but I don't see any official Red Hat documentation for setting up a mail server on RHEL 8... so I'm jumping to the conclusion that they assume no one will do that themselves anymore.

wew windows file explorer just died while exploring files

So it's sunset at Le Mans and people are driving 300 km/h while staring at the sun. That would terrify me. ๐ŸŒ„ ๐ŸŽ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ต

I've finished my bookmarks converter! At least, I've done as much work as I'd like to on it ๐Ÿ˜

Anyway, feel free to try it if you'd find it useful: gitlab.com/kazooboy/ff-bookmar

Some kids are mocking my beard and my muttering. No respect! ๐Ÿ˜‘

Just for fun, I'm planning to share my Firefox bookmarks conversion script. Trying to pick a license...

But... I'm grateful for today:

1. A VIP customer called with a crazy "freezing mouse" problem that I was terrified I wouldn't figure out. But although it took many tries, we got it working! ๐Ÿ–ฑ๏ธ

2. Finally watched "Shawshank Redemption," and it had a fitting message of hope for my season of life โ›๏ธ

3. I got a reminder that the 24 Hours of Le Mans starts tomorrow! (It's basically the only sport I care about, lol) ๐Ÿ

Bonus: listened to Hafdรญs Huld again today, and I highly recommend ๐ŸŽถ

In light of Discord "servers" being called "servers", I suggest we outdo them and start calling Pleroma accounts "data centers"
