Pinned toot

If you find me saying insensitive things and what not, please do correct me. I'm a work in progress and I am far from perfect. I make a lot of mistakes and would like to correct them before they become problematic.

I realised I didn't do an after moving here.

I'm an almost 33 year old South Asian who writes code for a living.

I enjoy pro-wrestling, heavy metal, cooking, reading, making puns, making acquaintances all around the world etc.

I don't trust governments, irrespective of whether I voted them in or not.

Weekends are busier for me than normal days.

Today's homework is An Ode to Joy, one handed of course.

elon musk made an interesting point the other day that he could run the entire mastodon site via a system of underground tubes

I told my colleagues that I won't be reachable on slack till 2 pm today. Sometimes, you gotta put your feet down to get what you need.

My last 3 days had me being interrupted every 5 minutes on two different problems involving different skills and I couldn't context switch efficiently. I didn't work on the tasks I'd set for myself either.

I had an really random shower though yesterday with the whole sea shanties being a thing for a while. So I doodled this

If @namtari ever hosts a tracker, I got the logo at least :angry_laugh:​

My brother owns a new balance sweatshirt that just says NB on the front and I can't not make the joke every single time he wears it

Because I am getting too many strange signups in the last 24 hours and most people don't read the Terms of Service, I added a Temporary Notice to Pricing page:

"If you are looking for an alternative to Parler, this is not it. Please look elsewhere. Thanks."

I hope that's clear enough :)

What's worse than back pain is a numbness that runs through one side.

When it's safer to visit a doctor again, I have to go see an orthopaedic one.

Decentering US politics by simply ignoring them -
oh, you mean "deaf to America?"

Yesterday, my manager in the US asked about what's happening in pro-wrestling because he knows I'm a fan, and asked how I felt about three deaths in a week.

He thought Jon Huber, Luke Harper and Brodie Lee were three different people!


I want a non US centric internet experience, is that even possible?

Morning has been ruined by those in charge of fumigation of the streets doing it so early and with a faulty machine that it felt like I slept next to the runway of a busy airport.

The lack of empathy in these authorities for kids and the elderly who could be sleeping in is appalling.

Now that #whatsapp has revealed its spyware nature to the general public and many non-tech savvy people migrate to #signal, I believe it is time to introduce #matrix to your friends

When exactly did this imagery of chemistry as the default placeholder for all science come into being

What I mean is when did lab coats and test tubes become *the* symbols for science in general

I'm writing java after 2 years. And it's one ugly piece of code. Save me.

in the distant year of 2021 you will need 4 gigabytes of RAM to open an 11 kb word document in microsoft teams

Startup men would find equivalence to their ecosystem in everything from racism to advanced science, but never equality and welfare.

I wonder why that is.
