Pinned toot

A couple useful points:

  • My avatar is a skeb commission from fumibeing on Twitter
  • I run this glitchsoc instance. It's practically invite-only, but I'm happy to give you an invite (or approve your signup) if I know you.
  • I'm open to DMs/emails/etc (my email is the same as my handle here) if you've got any questions or concerns you want to address privately.

heh, is trending for the second time since I set up this instance, may as well contribute

hi! I'm demize! my name should basically always be lowercase.
I run the instance (and am happy to invite you if I know you)!
I stream Mario Maker on Twitch (when I'm feeling up to it, brain is often bad)! I also wrote a bot to handle links in chat, since nothing else does it well.
I do infosec stuff, SOC/IR work, as my day job (with a weird schedule).

nice to meet y'all!

Gonna get a job at Twitch just so I can find the code that decides who gets a gift sub when someone gifts to the community, write a blog post on it, and then quit

very minor lycoris recoil spoilers 

Like, I realized very quickly that every episode ends in the same way: a brief funny and/or cute scene while the opening bars of the ED play

And that alone keeps me coming back, watching each episode as soon as I can

Because even though it’s a serious show, I know the ending of each episode is gonna be cute and good and make me happy

Show thread

A lot of it is because of how well it balances being serious with being… good and cute and funny

Every episode! They’re so good about it!

Show thread

God Lycoris Recoil is one of my favorite things I’ve watched in a *while*

very mid-forward to my ears, with good bass and decent (but not *great*, imo) highs

they'll do well for what I want them for, at least

Show thread

trying the anime IEMs out now, using my steam deck as a glorified MP3 player, and... I have listened to 50 seconds of one song and I'm already incredibly impressed with them

probably not the best sounding IEMs I have? but for $50 IEMs they're quite good, and the subwoofer in them definitely does its job pretty well

Show thread

testing IEMs is difficult, actually, when you don't have anything with a 3.5mm jack on it

my amp has a 1/4" jack and an XLR4 jack, and my phone is an iphone, and the DAC I ordered for it is still somewhere between Singapore and Canada according to Canada Post

I'm gonna need to log into Plex on my steam deck, I think

Virgo is gonna live on top of my desktop for now, because I have nowhere else to put her

Not exactly the sort of thing I would normally decorate with but it’s not like anyone’s ever here other than me

Show thread

Got myself some anime IEMs

And the acrylic figure thing I added onto the order not knowing what was

@ariadne your blog post yesterday got me wanting to play around with k8s... you know any good resources I could look at to get started? feeling pretty inspired by your whole setup tbh

I would have been sold immediately if it was guaranteed to ship a week or two earlier though... it's gonna get to me right after I get back from CircleCityCon, and I'd love to have it for that

Show thread

I don't do very much travelling other than staying at my father's house, but even just for that I'm gonna get my use out of it. it's gigantic, so it'll hold everything I actually want to take with me anywhere, and I trust Linus's assessment of how durable it's gonna be, so it'll last me forever

Show thread

welp I just ordered the LTT backpack

I thought it was way too expensive (and tbh I still sorta do) but... started Linus's shortcircuit video on it, and basically immediately realized that yeah it's probably worth it

new update on PTB seems to have broken many of my BetterDiscord plugins... using Discord on PC without BetterDiscord just feels so wrong now ;~;

contextless demize quote from a work chat: "why does software have to be so weird?"

actually no, my favorite MS Teams feature is one they seem to have introduced today... turning it into a time machine

whenever I see an emoji in Teams now, it's like I'm transported back to grade 6 and I'm using MSN Messenger again

Show thread

my favorite MS Teams feature is the mobile notification it sends me saying "you have notifications" that *actually* means "your company's terrible conditional access policies have left me confused"

it only ever comes through when I do not, in fact, have any notifications... but when I do need to go through the daily MFA prompt again

gmail has DONE IT AGAIN except this time it's even more obvious

they changed the highlight color

it's now blue, rather than... red? green? idk what it was before but it wasn't this

Show thread

(Feel a little bad about this joke, like I’m making fun of a design that doesn’t deserve the flak, but oh well)

Show thread

Ah yes, because a tried-and-true design that clearly invokes the ancient pyramids is the best choice for your “innovation campus”.

Show older Mastodon (Glitch Edition)

This is, a general-purpose invite-only Mastodon instance. We'll always be pretty small, and we hope to be a comfortable instance to be on.
