I'm a part-time software engineer and stay-at-home-dad. I used to be a high-school English teacher, but #freeCodeCamp cured me of that.
I love poetry but don't read enough of it.
I hate arguing online but I do way too much of it.
I try to seek out people with different life experiences to me, so if I follow you and you wonder if I'm gonna be problematic and tell you you're wrong, I'm actually just listening in and hoping to learn something.
I'd probably block me. YMMV
Here's a nice thing that happened, I was interviewed on a podcast :)
I moved house on Friday, and it was beset with loads of delays, finance issues, legal issues and at times looked like not only would we not move, but we'd lose 60k in the process.
Finally in and breathing normally again - I genuinely feel lighter and noticeably happy now that it's all over.
Still ended up about 22k out of pocket, but so happy to be done with it that it *almost* doesn't matter!
thanks to the help of people ON mastodon, i think i can write a frontend FOR mastodon that pretty much replicates the experience of mid-2000s myspace
- just a frontend
- the same experience as myspace
- no need to rewrite an activitypub implementation
- may be able to use any mastodon/activitypub backend
- written in Lisp, so it's awesome
- custom profile layouts in HTML and CSS like the old myspace
am i missing anything?
I like Society in particular.
It's got the same energy as Jason Isbell's Anxiety, in that it feels a bit cringe on the first listen for naming the thing a little too plainly, but then it being a really excellent song cancels it out. Really digging it.
Really enjoying the album All You Have is All You Need by Ainslie Wills.
Really smart songs, pretty chill.
She's put the whole album here by the looks of it: https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_k0PSuDogc3xxduWyFNmtkWuCIkHkjOPdg
