Pinned toot

i kinda tried this mastodon thing, but when you don't want to spam memes people generally just ignore everything you have to say. if you want to talk about smart shit or at least techy shit, people won't really respond to anything more than just links to ars technica articles about some PR blast or whatever.

think i've been here half a year and the grand total of my time's worth is i got to watch a movie over Rabbit one time, but other then that i think social media is probably pointless

think i'm probably just going to leave niu for the most part. might come back some time in the future to scrub the account for the usual corporate dick sucking reasons but i haven't made any lasting friendships here, and i honestly don't believe anyone out there is going to reach out to me for that kind of thing. even the people i did talk to here more or less forgot me within five seconds of walking off. :blobshrug:

the awkward moment when you don't have food money but you haven't posted enough platitudes and cat photos to be allowed a large enough social network for the bog standard begging for money posts.

The internet, without memes and insincere people, is little more than a cheap place to pirate books.

People, without platitudes, generally have nothing worth contributing.

its really weird how much people put up with ineffective doctors/therapists and just say "oh well try another one."

i mean in IT i don't get to just cash checks for doing nothing and tell the client try someone else. i have to go through layers of referrals and sales calls and flash pointless certs to even GET the interview.

in the 1800s you just go to the store and buy a bottle of laduinum and take a pippette between going to work for barely enough to live to tomorrow to do it all over again.

in the 2000s you get to pay 200$ an hour to some over-educated dork who ultimately does nothing but prescribe you ineffective laudinum proxies that cost 100x the price and then gives you just enough so he gets paid another 200$ an hour to give you another month's permission to pay for an overpriced bottle of useless shit.

psychology as a profession is a huge scam. 70-200$ an hour just to pretend to give a shit and ultimately do nothing to help you?

what is even the point

Trying to unit test parser output in Rust. Nested match statements are truly disgusting ._.

watching a lot of space quest and wondering if one could get away with making a multiplayer game that's just based off a ghetto adventure game engine

why do people beg for donations on mastodon instead of asking for work

Derpy take: what if you compiled Smalltalk to BEAM VM

nintendo in 199X: bricked because you glitched off the map in to weird ROM space

nintendo in 201X: bricked because the DRM said so

awkward moment when the design document for some random lewd game is 26 pages

manually setting your bulleted lists to have "keep with next line" in libreoffice so your 30 page document has good typography :blobcoffee:

o no. squishables has sold out of the mini spiders :( at least they're not discontinued

Iced Quinn boosted

adorable spider plushies: because they're better at debugging than rubber ducks

well, time to wander off (not like anyone reads or responds to anything i say anyway.)

unless thats what they're saying the orchestration runner does. 🤷
