Hi everyone! I've moved over here from, since my enthusiasm far outstripped any sort of actual talent I had, haha.

I live in Western Sydney with my lovely wife Kristina and our half dachshund/half Maltese dog Beanie, and am a hobbyist coder and photographer, Apple enthusiast, and general all-round geek.

Stop making white people the main character in supernatural/fantasy shows. "My people have been protecting this land from evil-" bitch your people have //been// the evil fuck outta here

I've forever got everyone beat on terrifyingly monstrous pumpkin carvings sorry

Daaaamn, it was _twenty_ years ago today that the original iPod first launched. 😮

I remember spending eight hundred and ninety-five of my hard-earned dollarydoos on one when I was working at Maccas for listening to music while commuting on the bus, and it was worth every cent.

We had a visit from @wobin today! 😮 Beanie definitely remembered him, though we gave him a full dose of the calming medicine and he was still barky to start with but calmed down faster than we expected.

Played another game of Warhammer Underworlds which was a very low-scoring game, mostly because nobody was able to kill each other because both people kept rolling crits on the attack but then also getting them on defense.

Oh man, I used our new electric lawn mower and whippersnipper today and it was an absolute DELIGHT. No fucking around with the stupid starter cord on the mower and it cuts so nicely. The whippersnipper has tons of power as well and lengthening the line is gloriously easy.

Sure there's no Trump instance in our corner of the fediverse but so what? A massive silo of bile can be blocked from your gaze easy-peasy with a few clicks. There's no Play Vicious amongst us anymore. Have a think on what that tells us of the health of this place instead 2/2

Meta / Trump instance / fediverse 

Are we done patting ourselves on the back for a job well done blocking an instance that hasn't even gone live yet? I wish the fediverse on the whole was this vocal while instances full manipulative cliques of "problematic favs" were busying themselves with bullying off a bunch of Black users like it was nothing, or causing some users to feel they need to make their presence smaller to survive without being harassed. 1/2 and adjacent instance folks, say hello to my friend and work colleague @jokeyrhyme who's just migrated here from!

1. Because you love capitalism;
2. Psychopathy As A Service
3. You don't give a shit about the sleep patterns of your staff
4. You're too lazy to work out how to employ people in a couple of other timezones
5. You addicted humans to your product and now you're reaping what you sowed

Like, as a society I feel like we should be here by now.
There is no excuse anymore.

If I have just explained that I have FIXED A PROBLEM why are you EXPLAINING THAT FUCKING PROBLEM TO ME AND BEING WRONG ABOUT IT i am so tired

How have we not moved past the whole 'person with boobs mentions something tech related, I best explain it to them immediately'

"if you don't have any of these you're not a real person"

Woohoo, my fancy espresso scales arrived! (I mean, you can obviously use them for more than just espresso, which we'll be doing).
