Anyone want to commission a fursona doll? The person that made these is trying to get started on etsy but I figured you fine folk might be more appreciative.

I just recently realised, that proprietary social networks are not social networks but entertainment networks. That's why at least my friends have a hard time switching to mastodon or pixelfed. People expect to be highly entertained the first second they enter the network and kept that way all the time. Being confronted with a network that is stripped from all these addictive tools is a massive cultural clash.

I...... wanna hackncode all niiiiiight, and debug everyday.

Somehow snoozed my morning alarm for 30 hours. Whoops.

Sorry, I'd love to go out with you, but I can't tonight because I'm sorting my box of m3 hardware.

I'm so classy I eat microwave burritos with a fork and knife.

Catching up on journaling feels good. Getting more than 2 days behind is untenable.

I’ve said “hey - it’s the 20s!” the way people used to say “it’s the 90s! 😝” in the 1990s and the reactions I’ve gotten are leading me to believe that most people have not internalized that it’s literally the 20s right now

Depressed hacker thoughts 

I used to be a child of the net. I knew its grounds, people and culture better than the real world around me. Where reality didn't make much sense the net offered casual freedom and lack of borders with a taste of optimist anarchy.

That net is gone now - centralized and monetized into a few major consumerist services funded by advertising and surveillance. There's regional borders, nationalism and artificial scarcity. Analog walls and restrictions imposed on a digital borderless space.

I thought it was just me getting older but it's more than that - what used to be an alternate world and a dream of the future became just another piece of the immediate world with all of its problems and biases.

The net has been domesticated and it doesn't feel like I have anywhere else to go.

Wearing a pair of shoes half a size smaller than I normally wear and now I'm wondering if these are too small or if I just always wear shoes that are too big because my feet are not very wide.

I like that this form had 'ms/mr' instead of 'select gender' and it let me leave it on that setting when submitting it.

It's almost noon and I am starting to feel awake.
