It seems my Mastodon to Twitter bridge broke some time ago so I'm testing moa.party/ now.

2021 begins with pseudo-viking-LARP taking place in the Capitol building.

At least it's not Sons of Jacob marching in to establish the Republic of Gilead... yet.

🔥 Node.js version manager (nvm) is not particularly pleasant to use, but an alternative I discovered (fnm) at least doesn't cripple your shell startup time.

How odd it took a long-lasting pandemic for me to realize how great it is to order groceries to home. Saves money and nerves.

Similar to the grown positive attitude towards remote working, this year evidently has its silver linings.

If eSports and CS: GO is your thing, my employer is orchestrating a tournament with Tampere University this weekend. The channel goes live tonight at 6:00 PM (EET).

Working remotely is cool.
Working remotely from home is ok.
Working remotely from home with kids is meh.
Working remotely from home with kids during a pandemic is hard.
Working remotely from home with kids during a pandemic and in the middle of the BayBlades mania is FUCKING HELL.

Had to squint and read the title a couple of times. Definitely not groundbreaking revelation to myself, but it's still a fact. Play is good for us.

The scheduled duration of a 'quick' meeting with 4 attendees: 30 minutes

Actual duration cost of the meeting: 2 x duration x the number of participants = 4 hours.
