Not doing DST this year out of protest. I'm just going to be perpetually late. Or early. (I never know which.)

Mar 8: OVHCloud signals intent to have an IPO in France, perhaps becoming the third biggest cloud provider outside of the US and China's Alibaba.

Mar 9: Massive fire where an entire OVH datacenter burns to the ground.

(I've been getting various vegan snacks delivered to me via mail. It started as a present, but I reordered it because it's honestly quite fun seeing all the different varieties.)

INCOMING VEGAN SNACK REPORT:

Paryake Chocolate Chip Cookies "CRUNCHY":

Absolutely delicious. Tasted just like the real thing. 10/10

Proud of my 67-year-old Dad this morning -- bought himself a new Pixel phone to replace his older one. Transferred everything over without even asking for help. Popped out his SIM card from his old phone and put it into his new one and everything.

...only for his cell company to tell him it wouldn't work because the phone didn't "have 5G", which I know is absolute bullshit.

instances should have theme songs and opening sequences where the main posters turn and smile at the camera in slow motion while their name and @ are displayed in the lower third

A fae, looking through their enormous collection of human names: "... what the heck was I going to do with these things, again?"

"Don't buy stocks."

-- This has been a public service announcement from your local office of THYNGRO (Tryin' To Help You Not Get Ripped Off)

_real_ curious to find out what happened with that Signal outage earlier in the week. Does anyone know if they're released a postmortem report?

Getting started with Docker. I feel like I'm playing catch-up. 🤔

Like, we could save _so_ much money by just skinning Google Sheets and putting a customer header image on it, or something.

Of all the years I've spend on teams creating applications and custom solutions for clients, I am thorough convinced that all most business teams really want is something that is basically just Google Sheets.

My parents won't stop asking me about the photos the Chromecast uses for its background, even though I never know what they are.

So I've just started telling them they're all my personal photos being streamed from my phone and making up stories for them.

And someone from the town where I live was killed yesterday at the US Capital. This is kinda screwing with me in a stronger way than normal. It's senseless.

Once again, thanks to @hugo for the great support as masto.host! If you're wanting to get out of the self-hosting business for mastodon, masto.host is a great deal!

I think I'm going to sit out this generation of consoles.

* Weird speaker from IKEA

I looked up the Red Hot Chili Pepper's listening stats on Spotify and found that their most popular songs and albums are from _after_ I kinda lost track of them.

This isn't a hipster rant; I'm honestly amazed and delighted that there's basically an entire _generation_ of listeners of the Chili Peppers that grew up after I was an adult. That's incredible.

I wonder what they think of songs like "Power of Equality," for instance?
