Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Since mastodon.sozial is "limiting my account" because I'm using a x-poster to Twitter: what general :mastodon: instance practicing more freedom would you recommend to me to move my account to?

Who will be first up against the wall?

In the revolution we will not have firing squads.

In the revolution we will not have guillotines.

In the revolution we will have Free Software controlled robot chainsaws.

The biggest problem with WFH so far is that I get too much done too quickly that I overtake my plans.

Normally there are so many interruptions during the day that I'm constantly reviewing what I need to do just to get up to speed again and that gives me time to think of the next steps. Sort of a meta-flow state.

I may actually have to stop and intentionally think out my next steps. That's kind of frightening.

I worked from home today. But, just as training in case it becomes required.

What? It's my form of prepping.

Four hours today at the DMV to get "REAL ID" drivers license.

I'm questioning my critical thinking skills right now.

Today I worked from home. I'd guess it's 50% more efficient and I don't waste an hour in a tin can on the road with other angry people in their tin cans.

Normally I build and develop our large C++ project on my 40 core Xeon workstation at work. This weekend I started to build it it on my trusty 4 core thinkpad t520 laptop.

... time passes ...

Some say, to this very day it is still compiling.

So much of capitalism is the act of getting in the way and then charging money to let things go by.

I need a real time chat solution for a community of volunteers (arround 100 persons, probably will grow).
Must have:
- e2e encryption
- group chatrooms
- federation

What would you go for? or

Having Monday off this week has made me feel a day behind reality. I've already missed two meetings thinking they were scheduled for the following day.

In the US today we have our day off to celebrate our presidents. We still lack a day off to vote for them.
