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

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

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

(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”.

(That guy is not here right now, but I’m sure he’ll be back, he’s almost *always* there)

Show thread

There is a guy on Queen St standing on a soapbox, dressed like a wizard, wearing a big fake grey beard, and playing a guitar cover of Highway to Hell

On the next corner, there’s a freestyle rapper

What a nice change of pace, compared to the guy standing outside McDonald’s eating his microphone and talking about Jesus

and I can’t even identify anything particularly special about it, that’s the weird part

It’s not something I’d necessarily recommend, because I don’t know what makes it stand out? but clearly I like it

Show thread

presently rewatching the 3 episodes that have come out so far, which I never do

there are shows I love that I haven't watched second seasons of because I can't rewatch the first! and I literally JUST watched these!

Show thread

Honestly I don’t know what it is about this show, but I can’t really get the show out of my head either

Show thread

cannot get the Lycoris Recoil ED out of my head

Preordered a physical copy of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 so that I can easily rip it and emulate it on my Steam Deck

Haven’t set up an emulator yet, but this may be how I try to play most Switch games going forward :P

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.
