I think I have enough of a personal following to move some of my more "personal" toots away from public timelines. This is great! I'll still share on the public local stream/fediverse. Especially if it's relevant to my local instance, funny or important/informative.

If you want to see the "other stuff" - go ahead and click the follow button.

Stay awesome and have a lovely day! 👍

Students: "Guido van Awesome"

Good enough kids, good enough ❤

From what my wife and I can observe so far is that Northern Ireland seems wealthier.

The roads are a bit wider. Suddenly we were travelling in miles instead of kilometres, spending in pounds instead of euros, the Union Jack flew readily in every neighborhood instead of the Irish flag, Gaelic was no longer on every sign.

It felt like a more modern Ireland, less focused on preserving culture, but no less beautiful than the south. It also felt familiar. Colonial, much like home (Canada)

Side note to any people in the UK @bobstechsite / @ChrisWere , we'll be in your area in the next week or so. I'm open to your suggestions! We'll be taking a train down to York and then to Oxford :D

We are leaving the republic of Ireland today and heading up to Northern Ireland. We're leaving behind many adventures. Some highlights being the Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle, Trinity College, burial mounds and more.

We are excited/intrigued to see how different Northern Ireland will be.

On vacation in Ireland. The first time my wife or I have travelled so far. The honeymoon is going well.

Pictured here is an ancient burial mound known as "Dowth". It was damaged and abandoned after a failed excavation in the 1860s, but is still protected by the government since. These mounds are over 5000 years old.

Google, who became the most powerful corporation in the world by selling web ads: Hey in the future every computer program should actually be a website. Don't worry about why, just do it. It'll be cool. We're the vanguard of technology or something

People: ok

People: hey why does this calendar i downloaded have ads in it

Google: Haha cool

A long ass time ago I wrote a boiler plate for a Flask website and/or API. I've been maintaining it here and there and improving upon it.

If anything it gives me a reason to log into Github and see who has starred/forked it recently. This puts a smile on my face.

Just read an article on using SASS instead of CSS-in-JS because of better features. Joke's on you, I use both because Vue templates are awesome like that. Scoped CSS, Global SASS Mixins, and a main application.scss for base styles. 👍

I don't get @pixelfed's remote following. It doesn't seem to work (for me). I can follow myself on pixelfed, according to Mastodon, but I don't see myself as a follower on Pixelfed and my Pixelfed profile on the Mastodon side of things is not up-to-date and won't show any images.

Any music nerds out there have issues with Ardour? It seems to crash/glitch during playback/looping a lot. I've gone back to LMMS just for simplicity's sake, but I miss my Helm and Zyn-Fusion.

friendly reminder that you can go to and download a copy of all the data google has ever collected on you!

based on this report, google knows enough creepy shit about me that anyone that had a copy of this data could probably blackmail me into doing bad things to people i love.

stop using google products.
