forced to write a toot every day lest Rumplestiltskin come and steal my cellphone

How huge a dork am I? I set up Gitea and Jenkins on a computer in my garage and they do CI builds of my mechanical keyboard firmware any time I push a commit.

Honestly in the wake of KNZK, my best advice is to grab ten friends and just start your own instance. The fediverse is best when everyone has a "small town" to call home.

Google seems to think that only Enterprise customers deserve to control their own computers or have privacy. If you use Chrome, it's time to switch browsers.

Still got a lot of yellow risograph ink on my hands. This stuff doesn't want to come off.

Pretty amazed that I never heard of this album or even the film but this Massive Attack OST from 2004 is fucking great --

Just impulse bought a DJ controller with a translucent case and a garish green glow, and the YouTube search terms for it are full of 10 year olds DJing terrible pop music which ... well I guess the glow-in-the-dark should have tipped me off.

Bought a physical copy of Wired to read Paul Ford's article about why he still believes in (capital T) Tech.
