I block pleroma/GS instances when I spot them, so if you're a non-shitbag using one of those techs, I likely will not see your responses, and I'm sure I've missed amazing responses from lovely folks, but I consider minimizing exposure between myself and pleroma/GS a higher priority than worrying about missing out on people.

NGL, seeing myself get quoted is fucking weird.

exhausted. but working on things.

how many people do cis people have to sacrifice to the knowledge of their baby's genital configuration before we stop this shit

never let slurs slide amongst friends. you gotta nip that shit it the bud. it's as simple as insisting "don't use that word," there might be a confrontation but you gotta keep insisting

some senior devs really are like "wow it's just wave after wave of junior devs who keep making the same mistakes" and then also don't give any kind of mentoring

how does linux deal with the potential of evaporated logfile? asking for a friend who uses computers

I miss this place

I miss the feeling


feelings like that don't really come back for me, I think. 🤷

Bioshock infinite: what if the side that is enslaved and the side that did the enslaving were both bad in their own unique ways 🤔
