Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.

@Gargron Happy Birthday to you. I love #Mastodon and thank you for leading and sustaining the development effort. A few people have joined Mastodon at my request. I bet if you reminded users to #hashtag interests in their #introductions and to use hashtagged keywords so their toots would be seen more widely, there'd be more connections, and more users, and in turn Mastodon would be more successful.
A perilous situation has now turned into a crisis which may extend into several months. If you know of any immediate FT/perm or 6mo+ contract openings for a very experienced #Windows #network #support #admin (some Azure and PowerShell exposure) situated between #Vancouver, BC and #Seattle, WA (#Victoria or #Nanaimo OK!) send them to me.
#amreading a silly and delightful #gay #mystery #novel _A Ghost in the Closet_ by Mabel Maney, a #queer parody of Nancy Drew, Cherry Ames and the Hardy Boys. The discontinuity is jarring though: the #lesbian couple described as married on the second page are downgraded to girlfriends several mentions later in the novel, but all the 'good characters' in the novel are lovable and double entendres abound.

I think I may dislike the useless advice for what to do when one's email address is in a data breach ("change your password you used that one time for that one online forum eleven years ago to one that isn't among the 558,274,913 passwords collected in a cumulative database of breaches spanning fourteen years") more than I dislike learning my email is in a data breach.
I saved my passenger's life today (crime scene) Show more
We had just seen police cars racing in our direction, then more police cars racing FROM our direction. Sirens wailed, lights flashed, but if I moved to the right for them like I'm conditioned to do, the taxicab caroming from the sidewalk would have T-boned into the our car's passenger side. I braked to a stop and waited for the fishtailing U-turn action to end and all the chase participants to go away.
@solderpunk thanks for telling me about Node. I heard them for over twenty minutes and they're great background music for task performance.
