Hi, new followers! For those who don’t know me, I’m a friendly, 43-year-old, dirty-joke-making, gay-married man. I work as a software engineer for Sketch and I’m a general laborer and house boy for 5 cats. I’m also an amateur radio enthusiast (well, enthusiast is a strong word) with an Extra-class license (W4JLN) for extra experimental RF funness.

The things mothers shout at their children truly transcend language and culture. 😂

The auto-refilling water pitcher in our fancy new fridge is pee shy. When you open the door it immediately pinches it off and takes a minute to resume after closing. 😂

Some have asked me if I take donations to cover the cost of this Mastodon instance. I don’t. However, if you’re feeling generous, I guess now’s a good time to ask folks to take a look at my nephew’s call for help and consider donating if you can.

Years of Patrick Stewart on American Dad and I still giggle imaging Captain Picard saying these things.

Hi, all - please welcome @keir, a former ADN lurker like me, and current coworker. He’ll fit in with the likes of Steve. 😒

Many thanks to Hugo ( @mastohost ) for his patience and especially for his swift and masterful handling of our migration, free of charge.

Follow that account for service announcements that affect our community, and keep him in mind if you ever encounter the question, “where to host an instance?” 😋

Welp - welcome to our new home! Media attachments are still being transferred (including appdot.net-hosted accounts’ avatars and banners), so you’ll likely still see some missing stuff for a bit, but all should be well! Please let me know of any non-missing-media-related issues you notice.

I like to think Jones and Cleese would appreciate this humo(u)r.

Friendly reminder: 3 hours until we start the migration (11AM EST/4PM GMT).

Hello, all! We're (finally) ready to move to Masto.host!

Tomorrow (Wednesday, January 22nd) starting at 4PM GMT (11AM EST; 8AM PST), Hugo from Masto.host will begin. He anticipates up to an hour of downtime.

Once his part is complete, I need only change a DNS record to point the appdot.net domain to the new instance. The TTL value was set very low more than a week ago, so that change should propagate very quickly.

Hi, all! I've started the process of changing the authoritative name servers for the appdot.net domain so it'll have a chance to propagate and have a low time-to-live so when the instance is migrated to Masto.host I can minimize downtime. I don't anticipate a service interruption, but @emery and I will watch it during our waking hours to make sure I haven't screwed up a zone record entry. 😋

Wonderful night with a wonderful witch. Nathan and I spent some time with a friend of ours. ❤️

We're hiring still at Mozilla!

This feels squickily like self-promotion (which I hate), but some folks round here might find something interesting there.

I will also mention that we have ongoing efforts to recruit folks who are *not* like me - i.e. straight old cis white guys.

So, if you are *not* like me along any of those axes, I especially encourage you to give it a looksee.

Hey, so, anyone want to work with me? We're hiring a senior software engineer on my team!

Yeah? Well they’ve been adding sugar and fat to children for YEARS and nobody’s trying to save adults from eating THEM, are they?! 😡
