Henlo, bird here.

I work with computers and I hate them so much. So much.

I'm mostly dropping this here because I use this thing for following a few cool people who mostly or only exist on fediverse. Y'all are cool.

But almost my entire social circle exists only on birdsite so sometimes I forget this thing exists for months. So I want to set like, realistic expectations about how active I usually am here.

hi I know I know a lot of people who are mostly only active on here but I keep forgetting this site exists

@ArrBianca okay weird, I was looking for your OPL2 stuff and realised none of your recent toots have shown up like, at all. No cinnamon bread or anything. I dunno if this is some weird fediverse thing I'm missing, but blahhhhhhhhhhhh that kinda sucks

"I believe the vegan option for egging or milk shaking fascists is a brick" 😂 :antifa: :mais_tjrs_le_poing_leve:

I'm sorry if it's weird that I only remember masto exists like, once a week and then have to go back liking your stuff that's days old, I'm not trying to be weird about it, I'm just terrible at this site but still want to read your stuff

It's always weird to remember when I pop over to masto every now and then, that I can just fav everything I like because I don't have to worry that I'll be soft-retweeting nsfw stuff into other people's timelines.

The fact that this thing just displays empty columns where content should be if I've been away for a while is kind of a deterrent to spending much time on this thing. It's pretty low activity anyway, but maybe I'd like to see what people have been up to when I *do* poke in here to look around.

I think I'm gonna turn off the twitter crossposter. It just feels awkward to have on here.

I guess that sort of means I'll be using this thing in sort of read-mostly mode. I appreciate that it's here, but there just aren't enough people I know migrating to make this realistic as my primary site.

Anyway it sure would be cool if I could occasionally share videos of cool meteors that we see that only exist as actual files on real computers

Sometimes I think about how twitter has a whole video upload API but you can only use it from the phone apps because ???REASONS???

My entire communication style today is just QRT-ing things with incoherent half sentences

I'm definitely wearing my holiday reindeer antlers to work on the last day before xmas this year

Work bought me like four beers because nobody else liked the last pitcher they got oops

Like, if there's anything to that... it's real uncomfortable that any space in front of a house that has one - maybe including streets - could become part of a surveillance network that automatically identifies anyone who walks into it?

For real though, the Amazon doorbell cop camera is bad, but maybe the worst part is they made it sound like it would interface with the police through that Rekognition network thing they're pushing to police depts.

I have no idea how I fit in anywhere.
I kind of suspect that maybe I don't fit in anywhere.

Sometimes it feels like easily more than half of the things I fix just end up being taking an existing program or script and threading it so we're not wasting like 7/8 of our cpu time.
