Ok, Mastodon, this is your first test. I'm having an emotionally awful week. Can you do the bird site thing and supply cute pics of dogs and cats and bats?

Anyway I see why people whose tech may be ancient and who already don't have a lot of respect might feel pretty resistant to coming anywhere NEAR libtech. At the same time I don't want to live in regular tech and I love a lot of folks in libtech...I don't know where else I've felt I belong but I see things that make me pretty ...well. In my feels.

"If coupons are a curse, then the Bed, Bath, & Beyond near me is low-key the Baba Yaga" -- ok yeah this is why I listen to MBMBaM sometimes.

This project has caught me up on all my podcasts that I can listen to while doing this kind of work so now it's time to listen to random MBMBaM eps I guess... (nobody can listen to Tanis while doing this shoot)

updating iTerm2. Also tmux changed my life. Preaching the good word.

Based on my passive-aggressive instagram storying of it, it took 6 min for my files to load. That's not any individual file. This is why I mostly work on this stuff in the terminal BUT I have to look at them sometimes. Because they're images.

So because our CorpFS is mounted on some kind of AWS using Avere and I guess Avere is a "you can store your stuff here and eventually retrieve it and it's not quite Glacier or anything" but I need to make dances for writing for my files to show up. 4 min later I am still waiting for my directory to loooooooaaaaaaaaaddddddd. I just wanna see my files.

"They've been having conversations over coffee because they meet in the same town [in Germany]." ... this is fine but I really do feel like you should send me an email if I'm in charge of the thing you want to change. Or I could not be in charge and have one less thing to do. I am very ok w/that.

@deagle ngl it is weird to see you talking to other me-folks (although Christina's like 1000x more so than I'll ever be so)

@Netanel oh gosh seeing your name pop up just made me v. happy!

So much of my life has involved getting told I shouldn't have said the thing that I said that you would think I would be unwilling to tweet or toot or even talk sometimes. It also means when I get an email asking to talk to me, I assume it's because I said something wrong.

@shepherd@social.wxcafe.net can you hear me now? ...also I'm a little </3 you didn't choose Shepard because I mean come on (I actually looked for that)
