Reflection on my recent career change into IT.

Personally, I don't care that Mastodon isn't grotesquely huge like our centralized counterparts. They may have millions of users, but its worth fuck-all if I can't meaningfully connect with any of them. Divisive, metric-driven algorithms that encourage conflict to generate revenue for shareholders is not MY social media... .

How would you describe your social experience here versus elsewhere? (2/2)

Now that I'm using my T430 working from home, I'm finding 8gb isn't adequate for all the browser tabs and RDP sessions I use on a daily basis.

Cheapest USED 16gb (8gb x2) SODIMM sets are selling on ebay for only 10 bucks less than cheap new sets. Scandalous!

Any fosstodonians have 16 gigs of SODIMM laying around they can offer me at good price? I don't really care about what speed it's running at.

oh.. you'd be shipping to west coast, usa if that helps

If anyone is interested, I wrote a python script to send Notifications form Mastodon to a gotify server. Lately I have been doing this for lots of stuff (Mastodon, Nextcloud, Email), because I quite Like it to have all my notifications in one place.
You can find it and others over at my github github.com/mrchainman/Mastodon

Ordered my Mini Dock Plus Series 3 with USB 3.0 – 170W 433835U, (whew) To better work from home. I like the idea of just using my notebook with all my work credentials secured on that to take back and fourth, and retaining the ability to work in a multi-mon env. Yesterday comprised mostly of setting up work-from-home employees with the means to do so, our company had never needed to put remote work practices and protocols in place before. Monday it begins. Tuesday'll be my first day.

What can I say? I'm a nipple enthusiast, it seems. Would that be bad form to wear on a t-shirt? πŸ€”

I'll be working from home 2 days a week now. Unsure how I feel about it. Less driving is awesome, at least. I've never worked from home before so.. 🀷

Spun up a Centos7 VM to test implementing ELK/elasticsearch stack. Works beautifully! Now to set up the stack on our logging server 😎

Work is giving us extra money per hour as "hero differential pay" (hazard pay) for all hours (including OT) worked in March. I'll take it. I hadn't heard of other companies doing this, anyone else?
