I've seen a few toots and pics from some serious stickerholics out there. Some of you guys have some pretty loaded canvases on the backs of your laptops and devices.

Let's see what you have! Time to show off the collection. Extra points for anyone sporting a sticker. 😉

Day 63 of the series:

I haven't written a post in 5 days. I have NOT been feeling well, so I wrote a whole post about feeling sick. Hopefully I'm back to my normal old self now.

Hey guys! I am a code newbie learning html/css/js and trying to find out what actually is 😉

It amazes me how difficult the simple act of sending specific files at a specific time with specific encryption on them can be.

I've spent the better part of the last three days coordinating with people from three different companies and at least four different internal departments trying to work this out. I feel like fifteen minutes with the right super nerd would be more than sufficient.

current projects -- minesweeper, hearts, a music player, picross.

i love reading (primarily fiction) and music (many genres).

looking forward to meeting some new people!

Yawning up a storm this morning. My BP has been unusually high lately, so I'm trying to avoid caffeine. I must have looked half awake in my department meeting. I guess without my daily caffeine dose, I need more than 5.5 hours of sleep.

I'm all-in on the and have announced my departure from Twitter (for the like three people who actually care). Let's see how this goes! 🙂

@mike the funny thing about this too is that Windows is flat out buggy with regards to some hardware standards, but since they've got market dominance HW vendors start building to Windows' buggy implementation instead of the standard. So standards compliant OSes end up being overly buggy *for following the standard*.

Day 62 of the series:

A little annoyed and preachy in this one. Might be because I'm a little under the weather and my BP is up. Dunno.

Hello Mastodon!
Hello Fosstodon!
This is my first post, or toot here.
I will setup my profile later and discover more.

Hello Fosstodon! Glad to be a part of a //real// social media group -- one that fosters open communications and privacy. <== I get to chose -- which is the only real social thing to do.

Yikes not only is mastodon.cloud constantly down (hence the Solus move, since I want to be able to always reach folks using or interested in Solus) but apparently it got sold off.

Kinda feel something as big as that would've warranted some sort of mass email rather than just a note in the announcements section that can be easy to miss.
