Oops I think I might have gotten a little too jiggy with the vodka.

Telling Firefox to delete all cookies on exit, which is something I did without thinking the other day, wasn't a good idea.

I wanted some pickles, and I got a couple small ones, but I was somewhat disappointed to find that there weren't that many left. We will need to get some more.

It's Patch Tuesday so I should probably close down everything before I go to bed so when Windows restarts itself I don't have to restart again to correct for stand-by nonsense.

Get in Babkans and other fedizens, we're doing Tuesday. Today has been busy, and my activity stats reflect this, which is a good thing because I'm bent on keeping this week's streak going. We put in a small grocery order and I dealt with that, every dish we own is clean with the exception of the ones we... acarson.wtf

Get in Babkans and other fedizens, we're doing Monday. I think I may have solved a thorny work problem, (yay Pods Framework), and I think I'm going to just repeat yesterday's lunch, including the early timing. Other than that, I hope everyone's having a stress-free day, and, if you're not, that the stres... acarson.wtf

@SteveSawczyn I don't remember if your blog is self-hosted or not, but I'm using the Post Kinds plugin with all the other indieweb plugins. You could definitely post them here, you just need to set up an RSS feed for Strava since I don't believe IFTTT will post directly to either micro.blog or Mastodon. Go here to get the feed: feedmyride.net to get your feed and then you'll need an IFTTT account if you don't have one already.

@SteveSawczyn I'm using a combination of Strava and IFTTT. I'll convert this workout over to the exercise post kind I have on my site, which I can't get IFTTT to automatically do and so a standard note, but basically that's the deal. Also I have my Apple stuff set to send stuff to Strava along with my bike.

Get in #fedizens we've made it to Friday. The bedroom air conditioner started leaking again last night, so that's off until it dries out again. And it's supposed to be 91F today. Guess who will not be going back to the bedroom until we can turn it back on? But at least it's the final day of the work week.

@cambridgeport90

I’m not sure what the confusion is, is it just that when you try to enter an email address the third-party service tries to fill in a domain automatically?

Specifically for myself, my email address is tied to my customerservant.com domain and it has been since 2005 and I’m not changing that. I do have a gmail address, the customerservant.com is hosted with Google Work Spaces, but I think it’s time to change that so I’m looking into other options.

@collin I have no idea whether or not Trump will start tweeting again, although I think he ultimately won't be able to resist. But I was there for 2015-2020, and I have no desire to repeat the experience of either his tweets showing up in my notifications, or people quote-tweeting his stuff or retweeting it. Screenshots from his thing have been bad enough, and I think I'll immediately block the first person who crossposts his content to Mastodon in any way.

@chrisaldrich It's just so desperate over there and it shows. Elon throwing hissy fits, people dunking on Mastodon, and I think it all comes down to Twitter's users collectively fearing that Twitter is shortly not going to be the influencial place it once was, and there goes everybody's social status.
