@ceejbot It's like these people would not only fail a Voight-Kampff test, but fail to understand the point of one.

Speaking as a GenXer, I must express my personal wish that y’all keep doing things that get under the Boomers’ skins. It’s hilarious.

A colleague showed this Untitled Goose Game-inspired poem to us (made by his wife)

Buying out the vendors of all your code’s external dependencies to own the libs

@ceejbot As of last week, mine's old enough to smoke, or buy lottery tickets.

Two weeks of Twitter Exile, and twitter have turned off DMs to their support account. AFAICT there is literally no way to talk to a human at Twitter. :( I do actually miss reading a few people, even after a couple of weeks off. Not sure if there's anything else I can actually do to reclaim my account, though. Obnoxious.

Thanks to my purr programmer for her assistance.

RMS’s retirement is tragic: it’s tragic that it took this long to happen, and it’s devastating that we’ll never see the contributions of the people who either left or never entered tech because of him.

We're slowly getting packed for our week away in the highlands later on this week. I don't think Rey approves. (Mastodon-exclusive cat content since I'm still in Twitter exile. A hundred pictures of floof for anyone who can tell me how to reach a human at Twitter!) scotland.computer/media/vW7qwe

ruby on rails any% speedrun

Apparently back in the sort of 2014/2016 period, Twitter was taking days to weeks to send out confirmation emails - just confirmation emails. Someone claimed to get one manually sent after requesting enough resends, so today I'm going to request one every half an hour. Fuck's sake, Twitter.

Still unable to confirm my Twitter account, still no way to reach a human at Twitter. Normally I'd reach out on Twitter to get some help, but, well.

@varjmes It's definitely not obligation - I think it's partly pride, partly amazement. Most places you work are, at best, tolerable so when you get somewhere that's genuinely good it's so exceptional that you want to shout about it, you know?

@bonzoesc Thanks anyway - I suppose at least if it gets me using Mastodon again then there's some upside. :D

Twitter have put my account in Twitter Jail. D: To get out, I need to verify my account's email, and they don't seem to be sending out the emails (or SMSes) to *any* of my accounts, and their support system is designed to keep you away from humans. I half wonder if a sidekiq queue or something has gone wrong? Does anyone have a contact at Twitter I can reach out to? It would be hilarious if it wasn't so frustrating.

@colon_three Strong perfume or strong handover?
