Watching someone stream is one of the trippiest feelings ever.

Programming made the impossible possible. You can have a null object and a constant variable.

How does linuxrocks protect against DDOS? Setting up my own Mastodon instance. Just wondering what I should do to prevent takedowns and spam.

I don't want you to put "BLM" in your display name. I don't want you to put "Black Lives Matter ✊🏾" in your bio.

I want you to unfollow the friend who posts racist jokes.

I want you to confront your parents when they make racist comments.

I want you to stop ignoring the racist coworker b/c they're old.

I want you to donate your time/resources/expertise to local groups making a direct impact on their communities.

I want you actually SHOW black lives that they matter while they're alive.

The matrix synapse database is a weird mess. Missing primary keys in the postgres db. Foreign keys missing. Sure we can use joins BUT WHY ARE HALF OF THE THINGS USING FOREIGN KEYS, AND HALF ARE MISSING. Also just inconsistent naming of things,

I can't tell how fast I should be working.
If I work too fast, I feel like I'm tiring myself out and making less money for the same amount of work.
If I work too slow, I feel unproductive and unprofessional. I don't wanna scam my employer, or get fired.

How fast am I supposed to work? I've never to asked to work faster or slower. So idk.

Oh look it's me updating my profile pictures and name after years!!

I've used to much node in the past 2 years that, for the past week, I've been sitting down to work and `npm start`ing my python-flask api.

nvm its all good. A lot of things were stalling there were a lot of broken pupes. idk why. I tried updating the system but everything failed and borked the system. It was fine tho. just reinstalled base and everything is normal. I guess it just needed a restart. Imma guess the RAM and SWAP got filled, which happens when i have Firefox w/100+ tabs, Thunderbird, Postman, Atom, Nextcloud-client, KDE Connect and flask running at the same time... I need to debloat.

Weird. GPG isn't signing anything. It was working a second back. It just kinda freezes. I just signed and committed a minute ago and it worked fine.

Does Pixelfed have a mobile app that supports stories? It seems stories are still in beta.

I feel like every domain you want is taken, and the person isn't even doing anything with it. Its pretty much always parked, or a black page, or an old ass website.

After going through a long ass process of connecting my insta to a facebook page, verifying my phone number, making a facebook devoloper account, setting up Facebook login, getting the access token from facebook, I need to verify my app. For which
I need to give them a government ID just to post on Instagram

Instagram's old API is dead and it's under Facebook's Graph API now. Single-handedly killed Instagram for me. Why does Facebook ruin everything I love.

It is so much work to use facebook APIs and there's a new verification step after everything. Pisses me off.
All I should need to post on my *personal account* is my secret token. Which is how it used to be until Facebook ruined it.

Using python after a long time. It is a lot of fun to use.

Money, Money, Money,
