argh (electronics shopping, rant)
I'm gonna fucking SCREAM. I bought a new phone, which was an ordeal in itself, seeing as I am a goddamn perfectionist when it comes to expensive purchases. I thought I'm done with the unpleasant, but nope! Phone has no haptic feedback. WTF??? Is it broken, or does someone actually make phones without it? Either way, I now get to enjoy the process of writing to Responsible Persons and sorting this crap out.

Lenticular lenses can be used to blur images along a single direction
dev community being a trashfire
ughhhhh, the Asshole 1% is going strong at Stack Exchange again. SE added "Prefer gender-neutral language when uncertain" to their Code of Conduct, and Some People are having an absolute MELTDOWN over it. The Q&A here, and the things they need to clarify make my eyes bleed: https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/334900/official-faq-on-gender-pronouns-and-code-of-conduct-changes?cb=1
I gripe a lot about fandom's social structures being vulnerable to drama, but we've got NOTHING on dev spaces.
Oh ewwwwwwwwwwww who let un-warned explicit porn on our Federated timeline???? That's vile. @alis should I have reported that? IDK what the rules are when it's form another instance...

On the orientation day for my new job I got photographed for the intranet. Against all odds, I don't look like a dint - I look great!
(You must understand: this NEVER happens. I am not photogenic. I had photos taken by professional photographers where I look like a turd.)
This rare moment is WASTED on an intranet photo.😄 I might need to stay at this company as long as possible, this won't happen again. 🤣
One thing I wish Automattic would fix on Tumblr is the blog RSS feeds. The damn things don't update properly - long time nothing, then I get a batch of posts from the last few days. At first I thought it's just the people, coming once in a while and reblogging a bunch of posts in a row, but I checked and nope, it's the feed lagging behind. What kind of aggressive caching do you have there, Tumblr???
ahahaha I just discovered that the city officials (who apparently don't have any access to English-speaking news or something) made a poll last year for the name of the new main train station.
The result is a pun based on a local slang word. I LOVE IT. Pleeeease make them use it, that would be so awesome!
Just cracked myself up reading a note I made about a #productivity article:
"the idea that you can put off something impulsive for 2.5 hours is HILARIOUS."
The perils of finding advice on the internet: most articles are "this worked for me", and "me" is usually someone whose brain ISN'T a bouncy ball in a small room.

I use Masto because I have too short attention span for regular blogging.
