A problem re: my new job: I'm running out of "business casual" clothes fit for summer. I guess I need to acquire some more?

I don't really know what counts as "business casual". All I see when I look at women in the office is that they're petite and impossibly well put together.

I would like to read up on using Docker but I'd also like to not be bored or angry. Is there any solution to my conundrum?

Bonus points if it's by someone who's also written about other open source cloud stuff, because yikes is so much documentation a mix of dull and pandering.

My work laptop this time is a MacBook. How do I make this a good experience, programming-wise?

I have iTerm2 and Brew, I'm willing to consider editors of less ancient lineage than Vim/Emacs (I do feel strongly that text editors should be free), and at home I use XFCE, if that tells you anything.

(Pretty much all of my programming experience has been on Linux, but I know that there are Significant Differences and in particular that X11 applications are very much second-class citizens on MacOS.)

Amazon threatens to suspend Signal's AWS account over censorship circumvention signal.org/blog/looking-back-o

Amazon and Google are both coming out opposed to people using their services for domain fronting, to circumvent censorship.

Note that Signal is actively blocked in Egypt, Oman, UAE, and Iran. So, that sucks.

#FAQ

Presented for your consideration: space kitties.

Blizzara and Bonus are really into the new duvet cover.

My friend @BMPrager (aka @bmprager@twitter.com) made me an avatar! So I'm trying out the whole "have a picture of yourself as your avatar" thing, even if it's in drawing form rather than photo form.

This is... sort of a thing I almost never do, especially on public-facing stuff, if I can avoid it? Because, as you know, the dysphoria.

But I figure I need to start somewhere if I'm gonna get over that, and putting art by a friend on a site that not a lot of people check seems like a good place to start.

when they told you that computers are really dumb, because they only do exactly what you tell them to do, that was a lie

a lie of omission.

they do what you tell them to do, while also doing what a million other people over the past 40 years told them to do to

sometimes, those commands interfere with, or contradict each other

People from witches.town, it's about time to move to another instance if you didn't already!

Please keep in mind that some users are not on Mastodon every day and need time to notice you moved.

And if you are unsure where to move, ask your friends in the fediverse, I'm sure you will get great recommendations! โค๏ธ

Pro tip for all NPCs: if you reply the same thing twice to a player, they will leave you alone.

I had my third in-person interview lead to rejection today. Pretty clear that it's the VP's decision. Official line was them not having time to teach their (not that unfamiliar) stack.

Sorta conflicts with "apply even if you don't check every box", but maybe that's just for dudes?

(I have more phone screens lined up, so I'm not, like, despondent, but I'd let myself get kind of excited about this one (for the environment maybe being healthy for me; not, like, for the product), and that stings.)

Hi! This is my third Mastodon instance (after witches.town and mastodon.social), and maybe this time I'll actually start posting here regularly?

I'm not a writer (though I guess I did write a dissertation once upon a time), but I do read a fair bit, especially SF/F. And also words on the Internet, because sometimes I make questionable decisions about how to spend my time.
