At a neighborhood party, with people I’ve known for almost a decade.

But my “social stress” meter is already ticking down.

Yes, the UI would be utterly terrible. Yes this is a stupid, fragile design that would never work in the real world.

I still want one.

@mara_cav_ I totally get that. There are employees here who have never known me as one of the developers, to whom I've always been that scrum master guy.

I want to say, "Hey I still write code in my free time!" but then I remember all of the managers who have said that to me over the years and how I (internally) rolled my eyes. This is just who I am now, I guess.

Something I've been thinking about lately: building a community where connections are strong enough that we notice one each other's absences.

How I check the time:

1. Wake my phone
2. Look at new alerts
3. Still don’t know what time it is.

@vicorva I used to worry that if something I was working on wasn't 100% original people would hate it and throw garbage at me.

I told a friend of mine this and they said "remember that the saying 'there is nothing new under the sun' is itself about 4000 years old."

For some reason that helped me chill on the "originality" front. Now I'm trying to focus on finding my own voice and saying what I want to say regardless of who has said it before.

Suicide PSA 

PSA: Sync for individuals is on sale right now. I've been using it for years to keep my important files distributed to all my computers, without a Dropbox-esque server that's under someone else's control.

It's also great for managing my server. I just add files to the directory on whatever computer I happen to be at, then when the file is synced to my media server I can delete it off my local machine.

@fribbledom They work, but they're not magic. I've had good luck keeping one bedroom free of contaminants, but only by washing all my bedding frequently, vacuuming VERY frequently, and keeping the door shut as much as possible. It depends on how much dust/smoke/whatever is being introduced to your environment, and how much air pressure the filter can generate.

I find your lack of face disturbing.

I appreciate that at least tried to make sense of the cast list. But now I want an episode with all five modern doctors and Rose. :tardis:

@jeff Two full years ahead is probably good enough. For now. Thanks for all the !

@matt for a hosted :writefreely2: WriteFreely instance, is there a way for me, as an admin but without command-line access, to remove spam users?

I'm guardedly optimistic about the thought of someone making a new next year. I've been playing the original version recently thanks to and it still holds up. We'll see what they do with it.

Frogmob Life

Hey there! The frogmob life is a simple, calm life. Frogs don't waste energy on anger and fighting. Or something. I like those two words together and my very first ever website was called, so I resurrected that here in the fediverse. Expect this text to change. We are interested in low-stress, happy and open discussions of life, faith, the universe, and Doctor Who.
