@betsythemuffin and I are "soft launching" a video series where we mob program and solve big problems.
We've published a _VERY ROUGH_ uncut recording of the "First of ???" episodes to YouTube (https://t.co/axNWSSM5sa) and also made a season pass available for download / purchase on GumRoad (https://gum.co/rwc-s1-debugging-downtime)
We want your critical feedback so we can do better in the future!
Is there alternative web-mastodon clients? I like wandering.shop as a community and host; but the built in mastodon web client is... awkward at best.
Like, I can't quickly see my mentions or direct messages? It's all stuck in "Notifications?"
And if I start a reply to a message, it isn't inside of the thread I'm replying too, it's in this column on the far left.

Today was a good day. I set a boundary with a client that was pressuring me to provide more time than I safely could. They took it reasonably well.
I went for a morning run in the rain! (that cost all my discretionary spoons, but it was worth it to re-establish that rain doesn't stop my exercise habit).
Plus I solved a bug that kicked my ass all afternoon yesterday.
This was _after_ a night of insomnia! (~3AM sleep time, 8AM wake up)
Feels good to be getting past burnout.
Shameless self promotion! (Ruby on Rails / DevOps) Show more
Tomorrow at 10 AM PT/1PM ET my business partner @betsythemuffin and I are pair-programming on a #RealWorldCode base that's written in #Ruby on #Rails. We're debugging a #DevOps/#SiteReliability issue, that appears to be cause by Amazon RDS taking a giant dump due to IOPS being used up for no good reason.

Turns out I still almost get panic attacks when major stakeholders on projects make jokes about wanting to go faster.
I know. I want to go faster too. I love going fast. I can't go faster when every deploy results in you adding changes to the top of the queue without acknowledging adding stuff to the front of the queue pushes other things _down_ the queue.
