Check out this desktop screenshot of mine from 2005.

I have always been an advocate for using anonymous accounts online to keep your personal life and the online masses separate.

But those accounts are always just a temptation for me to argue and get frustrated with others, so I am now deleting most of my anonymous/pseudonymous identity for the sake of being a healthier person.

Expect me more here. I like how Mastodon gives me completely control over my identity, and lacks the right-wing agitators that ruin social media for me generally.

Blown away by my 5G download speed. Severely disappointed in my 5G upload speed.

I was worried that being a single-user Mastodon instance would get me on some sort of block list. Like "this guy's his own mod, don't give him a chance", which is totally understandable given how people tend to abuse fediverse communities.

But so far, I can't find anyone who has my instance filtered or suspended. For this, I thank you!

And I'll continue not arguing or stirring up drama, because I don't want this to change.

Finally got around to upgrading my private instance.

I'm ALMOST to 3.5.1, I just have to figure out why I get compiler errors on the upgrade to 3.5.0.

It's my understanding that elon is driving people to Mastodon. I should probably actually use my private instance. If you're new, follow me to give me a reason to keep posting.

If you use #GMail, #Google keeps records of everything you buy, even if you delete the email receipt, and even if you didn't buy the product from them. Here's metadata from my takeout showing price, delivery address, description, vendor, etc. #privacy

I've slowed down on the programming practice now that the weather is nice and I want to be outside more, but I'm chugging along.

One month into Codecademy, and I've covered more than I expected. Strengthening old skills, and gaining new ones.

Started with the Command Line class to see how the lessons were taught, and ended up learning a few shortcuts that I apparently never taught myself.

Now I'm comfortable enough to goof off with Python a bit.

I need to keep myself focused and try to double down over the next month.

Playing around with Blender. No idea what I'm doing, mind you, but I made this somehow.

As I finish up the first stage of my python training, I'm searching for datasets that will be useful for my next stage. Just found this, and it's gonna be fun:

It's amusing to me how people outside of Washington State seem to think that Seattle has transformed into some sort of barren wasteland over the past year.

It's been a rough year, sure, but the city is fine. And we'll keep doing fine no matter how much Conservative America keeps lying about it.
