it's 8am and i bought another book on .

this is how i know i'm burnt out

i think i'm going to start up my web crawler again. last time i crawled i got 100mb of links

pre-commit checks are there because the the cost of breaking the build is too high. maybe you shouldn't have a build that's expensive to break instead??

coworker's insistence to put a bunch of pre-commit checks on the repo prevented them from sharing the compiler error with me

I am working on projects at work now. I'm afraid something will go wrong, but so far instead a lot of things go right.

I'm a developer in that works in moving data around to support at my company.

I want to start learning a static language to do the same stuff, or otherwise I want to pick up projects better suited to using an ML like , , because I can't learn something unless I have an actual project I care about that requires it.

now that Google is removing SMS support for what am I supposed to use that isn't awful?

does anyone use a messaging app on that doesn't suck?

@cpdean @pedrosilva Also worth mentioning that Wire just said that federation is on their roadmap. It's not here yet, but they did just come through on their promise to open-source their server.

@groundh0g @cpdean At current, there only seems to be an option to export the handles of the people you follow. No option to take your toots and migrate them.

@cpdean There's an export and import in the settings tab. Haven't tried it.

so how do I migrate my data between Mastodon instances? after the hype bubble, over half the instance operators will get bored or realize the cost of the servers aren't worth it to them.

What's the solution to the remote follow feature? There's gotta be a better way than remembering which instance I signed up for.

I understand the implementation difference between local and federated timeline, but will most end-users really care?

i wish mastodon had some way for me to discover the people i want to follow. just shouting into an empty closet right now
