Hey, so I'm a long-time TTRPG player, since D&D Basic Set in the early 1980's as a kid. I've since played a LOT of different games, too many to list. Currently running DCC and playing in a Star Wars Edge of the Empire game.

I'm a DevOps engineer to pay the bills, and former web and desktop app developer.

I have a lot of cats and live in NC, USA.

There are an amazing quantity of solicitors who cannot read or refuse to acknowledge prominent NO SOLICITING signs.

I need a big I WILL NOT BUY YOUR SHIT sign I guess. Or find a jurisdiction that allows less-than-lethal deterrents.

Really excited for the Lord of the Rings prequel series to finally answer all my big backstory questions, like "why was meat originally taken off the menu?"

No one in 2022 should be developing web apps that do not function in all major browsers. If someone reports your app doesn't work in Firefox, responding that it works fine in Safari/Chrome is not an acceptable answer.

It is also not acceptable to say that if tab navigation does not work properly, that is a browser issue. It's a basic web UI accessibility issue. One your web devs should fix.

Take a few minutes to do something just because it makes you happy.

My Garmin dashcam is not great, it seems. I was in a minor fender-bender last weekend, braked from around 55 mph down to a 10-15 mph impact, and it recorded NOTHING. Worthless.

There are people who think Fedi is useless because you can't market your business on it.

Well there's one bit of anxiety cleared... got my Security+ certification.

Does anyone else mark repeated recruiter emails as spam?

1980's Satanic panic 

As someone whose youth was upended by Satanic panic bullshittery, I'm angered that this is getting a re-release. This garbage is part of the reason lives were destroyed by urban legends, propaganda, and religious extremism during that time.

You can turn off the news and sign off social media for a bit. It's okay.

This was predictable. Facebook/Meta is now encrypting the QP data so that Firefox and other privacy conscious browsers that strip the tracking data can't. Only way to avoid it is to not use Facebook at all. #DeleteFacebook #SurveillanceCapitalism…
