listen, i'm glad everyone is here/back but platform metacommentary alone won't be enough to make this stick. you need to start posting inane nonsense

Sometimes taking care of the hard things is self care. Get them done and you'll free yourself of that stress.

@annika I think this may have been my favorite one so far… but I may also be biased by enjoying the answer as much as I do

“Less than a minute remaining…” is the largest lie in computing

@Tanuki I’m on, but that’s not really a small community… I’ve found most of the rooms on Matrix are global, so it’s harder to build a small community vibe similar to Discord 😕

@shadowfacts I mean, first they had to pick out colors for the bike sheds…

Today’s album is brought to you by:

I remember the first time I played this album and seeing how long the first track is (16:36) broke my young brain. Re-listening to it more than 20 years later is not diminishing my enjoyment at all

Went for a walk around 10:00PM the other night and the reflected city lights on the clouds made it almost seem like it was a lot earlier in the day.

I think this might be my favorite lighting of any photo I've taken, even though it was a totally found scene.

Every one of you is precious and wonderful and unique and necessary and deserving of life and love and peace.

Anything your brain does to try to convince you otherwise is a mean trick.

Please try to remember this. Remember it unceasingly.

As a music listener, the thing Bandcamp Friday did for me was give me a fixed reminder to actually budget for and purchase music I enjoy instead of putting it off or being complacent about using streaming services.

I’m not going to be able to go into detail, but over lunch with a director at a large computing company we once napkin-math'd how many “cars we could take off the road” if our email client trusted spam scores appended to messages by the email host rather than re-evaluating every message downloaded for spam analysis locally

In the next release, on-device spam analysis was disabled if your email provider included spam headers in the messages

This was an amazing way to end the week. played a show for our office via WebEx and it was a perfect transition to the weekend. Seeing coworkers & their families grooving along put such a big smile on my face.

If anyone is looking for a way to wind down, you can’t go wrong tuning in.

Music lyrics, smoking (drug use) 

🎶 Cause I mess up the time
Mess up on the rent
Messing up the moments
Where life’s got me spent
I just wanna go home
Crawl straight into bed
And catch up on the sleep
that I never get
Apologies, don't offer them
Or bother me, no, not for anything
Just load the bowl,
And fill my cup,
Accept the fact I’m messed up🎵

Privacy is not a luxury.

Same with accessibility. Neither are luxuries, they’re life-sustaining rights. And you’re unusually privileged if you’ve not had to care about either.
