Blarf. I *just* got over a nasty flu, and now I'm sick again. >#<

Huzzah, after only a little bit of swearing, and upgrading through two intermediate versions because db migrations were failing, I was able to get my instance running on the latest mastodon. ...Maybe I should script the upgrade process, and do it more than once per year. >#> <#<

Oh, I just discovered a security vulnerability in my masto instance. Time to update to the latest release, and see if that breaks everything.

Quote of the day from my Shadowrun game: "So, how presidential-looking *is* this robot dragon?"

So, I just got an email informing me that Google is disabling all non proprietary methods of accessing mail, calendar, etc on my enterprise gsuite account. I guess it's time to migrate that domain back onto self hosted stuff.

I head a dream where Yami YuGiOh was full to his hairtips with QVP energy and was JoJo posing as he stomped people into the shadow realm and the more I think about it the more I like it

Welp. I am now quite sick, because when I asked one of the food service folks at work whether one of the menu items contains stuff which I can't eat, rather than admitting they didn't know, they assured me it didn't. :/ After I started getting sick, I went and tracked down the manager, who confirmed that, yeah, it did.

Bleh, shoe shopping sucks when you have big feet. The local shoe store had exactly one pair of shoes in my size, and they told me that if they weren't an option, it would take a month to special order ones which would fit. :/

And today in WTF California drivers, I just saw some fuck wit in a big pickup apparently trying to force a self driving car prototype to either hit him or go up onto the sidewalk by cutting it off repeatedly, while hammering on his horn and screaming out the window. Being on the piece of sidewalk he was trying to get it onto, I am not amused.

JFC, I just about got hit by some git who done across three lanes of traffic in like 50 feet to get to the on ramp I was crossing. At what point does driving negligence qualify as attempted homicide?

To everyone who still makes text-based tutorials, thank you!

I'd much rather follow a text tutorial than wait 15+ minutes for a video tutorial to load.

Your work is very much underappreciated. Thanks again! 💜

Neat, I just got a verbal offer on a new job, while I was in the middle of gathering references for it. As long as the background check doesn't turn up anything which they never have before, I'll be back to getting paid regularly for doing things I like to do, in a couple of weeks.

if you force me to interact with technology using my voice i'm becoming an anarcho-primitivist

Whee, I went on craigslist, and realized two things; 1) I could *massively* decrease the budget on a furniture project I have kicking around in my head through creative material recycling, and 2) it's probably a good thing that I don't have access to a pickup truck, since I also don't have room to store and work on things like I would want to.
