life pro tip if you don’t have any friends to hang out with on Thursday nights you can always make your own that you trick from birth into thinking you are cool

I ordered some cord locks for my winter boots. Ordered Qty:2. Find out today that I actually ordered 2 packs of 6! Lol. Anybody need 10 cord locks? πŸ™ˆ

I'm getting broken images on the compose window on Pixelfed (image upload goes okay). Happens on FF and in Chrome and on my phone. I'm assuming this is an issue with my instance. Cleared caches and still no go. Hmm.

Truthfully, I'd like to sit down and have @pla explain to me (a dummy) what he's actually doing. I can't figure out if it's clever or a helluva lotta work. :-)

I like the idea of but I'm not sure it provides what I want. Newbie questions:

1. Does the instance I pick determine the quality of experience I get? (ie. uptime, glitches etc.)
2. If I choose to switch instances do I lose what I've done and have to start all over?

I realize it works similarly to mastadon instances but isn't quite the same. Maybe I should stick to hosting my photos somewhere else for now.

After 13 years I finally dropped my webhost (unsurprisingly, cancelling was way more complicated that it needed to be). So I switched to someone else. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but here's to new beginnings. πŸ˜ƒ

Here's an alert to tell you not to be alerted by the previous alert. I don't blame them but it's still funny. :-) @Matter

Say what you want about Microsoft, but vscode is a darn nice editor. I've got it running on Windows at work, on Mint on my home laptop and on my Chromebook (in XFCE under Crouton). It's sort of what I wanted Atom to be, but it seems so much faster (especially starting up). Kudos to them.

A book I ordered arrived today. I'm trying to understand a part of the world I know very little about.
Sad coincidence that I come home to news reports that it's likely going to turn into a potential shitshow.

Baked pasta. Did sausage instead of chicken this time. Either way it's very good but surprisingly I think I prefer the chicken.

I've almost fully migrated my Dropbox sync setup to Google Drive on my desktop work machine, phone and laptops over the last few weeks on my spare time. Just about ready to uninstall Dropbox everywhere.

Decided to finally remove and redo the gorilla tape job today. 7 full months and it was still holding strong but looked a little ratty in a couple spots.
