Hey! I'm new here, but not to Mastodon. I'm just gonna paste my bio for my :

I'm Matsuba, or Tom, a tech enthusiast and tech skeptic rolled into one. I'm gay, masc, tentatively agender, and easy to get along with 😊

Don't ask me why my brain does these things. I don't know.

Why do I feel a desire to spend well over $100 to repair my 10 year old MacBook, knowing that it no longer receives software updates and that its GPU is a time bomb? Fond memories and not wanting to unceremoniously send it off to the recycler I guess

Sometimes my cat sniffs something and literally moans and I do not like it

I low key hate how programming languages make me think about what null and negative numbers mean for a variable representing a length of time.

Where’s that meme about math?
“I will wait for null seconds. I will wait for -1 seconds.”
—statements dreamed up by the utterly deranged

Ah yes, a dramatic reading of Ted’s Caving Page is the perfect thing to listen to before bed

Slowly moving my online accounts off gmail, and my saved passwords off iCloud. Feels good. A quiet "fuck you" to Apple, and a hardy FUCK YOU to Google
