Time for a (re)introduction to the Fediverse.

Howdy. I'm Matthew, aka Hyper.

To surmise my existence in this forsaken reality:

🇦🇺 I'm Australian, hailing from South Australia - the forgotten state.
💬 Chronic shitposter. I meme and give -1 fuqs.
🤬 Chronic profanity user. Chronic may be an understatement.
🎮 Life-long gamer. First learned to cheat in videogames with Duckhunt putting the NES IR gun against the glass of the TV for ez win at the age of 3.
🎨 Graphic designer. I spend too much time in Photoshop.
🎞️ Animator. Also spend too much time in After Effects.
👨‍💻 Software developer. For my job, I develop in .NET, but I plan on diving into .ORG and .COM soon.
🎥 YouTube content creator. Primarily livestreams, but the occasional video and podcast when inspiration strikes.

I'm into metal, usually the symphonic deathmetal variety from bands like Fleshgod Apocalypse or Septicflesh, but also into Synth/Darkwave Electronic.

I'm also ADHD. I was diagnosed as a kid, but through some piss poor advice from now former family members I stopped my treatment at 14 and got myself rediagnosed in 2020. It explains a lot.

This banger never fails to get the energy bopping.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

My morning at work so far has consisted of making coffee, playing Killer Instinct on our Arcade cab, and editing a promotional video for the company. And I've not even opened Visual Studio this morning.

How's your day going?

Pros and cons of regular development team meetings at work.

Pro:
- Helps keep everyone abreast of current development projects
- helps communicate what needs prioritisation based on client feedback
- keeps people focused

Cons:
- distracts my dumb ADHD brain when I'm on a roll in the code
- anxiety when I say the words "still working on it"

😂

It's really easy to tell when the focus is on ticket closure KPIs instead of an issue actually being resolved.

Working remotely is a dream, but if anything, the latency in calls over the Internet needs to be old yella'd.

Apparently Boris Johnson fired Michael Gove after Gove threatened to resign if Johnson didn't resign.

Whoa! I love this layout of @Mastodon courtesy of pinafore.social (it’s a new & smooth UI look). Thanks @nolan for creating this! Also @strypey for letting me know this existed!

I've written a draft to try and start a movement to get people away from for-profit Twitter, and towards the more community focused fediverse.
Who would like to read my draft so far?

It surprises me greatly that this wasn't used in the Stranger Things 4 finales.

This is on point for the Stranger Things vibe.
