i guess since i haven't been active on masto for a while it's worth doing another post!

the more you tighten your grip, the more genders will slip through your fingers

selfie 

late capitalism 

anyway i still really like and would probably be willing to go back to a job using that if it came down to it

i've been tinkering on a personal project in for the last couple weeks, and it's nice remembering all the little tricks in visual studio that i picked up during my first job (where i was also writing vb)

we got a couple magnetic poetry sets for our fridge last night (hidden for profanity)

PSA: duckduckgo has !-keywords that redirect searches to other sites
like
!w - wikipedia
!g - if you want to be a heretic
!aur - the AUR lol
!gh - github
!wa - wolfram alpha

so to search wikipedia for the article on crabs you type
!w crab

if you set ddg as yr default search you can jump to literally all of the webbed site searches with minimal keystrokes :blobcat:

i love how the fediverse has a dedicated protocol for "custom emoji" so people can make up their own memes and splice in little images into their posts, and other people will be able to see them even if the post is federated to another server

be careful!! my gender is radioactive and should only be approached with proper safeguards in place

powerline networking is weird-ass magic, but at least it makes for a dead-simple wifi range extender

i see it didn’t take me long to get back into my old habit of faving half the things that @accessibleColors posts

is there some kind of quick-reference document for good things to do periodically when maintaining a mastodon server? things i should keep in mind if i want to kick the server for system updates or the like?

i want to make sure that i don’t mess up the squad.town server too much due to inaction >_>;;

(i guess i should say something like "please boost the first post in this thread" since i'm not sure any server admins follow me >_>)

in the absence of a response (and a frustrating lack of results in DDG for guides on long-term server maintenance) i'm just going to assume i just want to set up backups and manually stop the systemd services whenever i want to kick the server
