Well, yes, I did recreate my twitter account, it seems that there's a lot of info being fed to me over there.

A friend of mine just just tried debugging why he couldn't compile various pieces of software (for example cmake) and stumbled upon something rather hilarious:

As it turns out the compiler checks during the configure stage fail because they do a string match on the word "warning". If it finds that word in the output it rejects the compiler, as it assumes it to be not working correctly.

My friend's username? Oh, nothing special, it's simply "m_warning".

😂

Say, anyone here using a tool to automate cross-posting Twitter & Mastodon? I"m thinking about doing that.

I am working SO hard today. So hard on not being distracted by the internet or anything else. I'm failing, but I'm working on it!

Working from home today so that my dog isn't lonely since my wife and teens are away overnight and through the day. Sucker or no?

Sent my wife and teens to the BTS concert in Hamilton, ON tonight. I'm not such a big fan of K-Pop that I'd be into a concert, but it's fun stuff and they love it, so I wish them the most fun.

A blast from the past for all the #Linux people out there. Behold, the Linux Platypus! This is a proposed mascot for Linux that predates Tux, the penguin.
Hat tip to @craigmaloney for the trip down memory lane!

Well, here we are. Using a Mastodon instance, hating on The Effin Birdy Place.

And now I've disabled my Twitter account. Done.

The current list of ways something can get into the federated timeline:

- someone from your server is following that user
- someone from your server replied to that user
- someone from your server is following someone who replied to that user
- someone from your server liked/boosted it
- someone from your server copy/pasted the link into the search box, causing the server to load it
