So That Bird Hell Site refugees seem to be divided between here and Cohost. Seems the more technically inclined end up here. Why is beyond me, this site doesn't take any special technical skills to use.

In addition to following Twitter (for now), I feel like I'm going to eventually have to make a decision to either follow both sites, or abandon those that moved to Cohost in favor of brevity and sanity. It's not a decision I will make lightly.

This is the first step in removing chronologically ordered posts... They make the algorithm the default option and in a couple of months they will say "oh no one uses chronological posts, so we're removing it".

OK this is the weirdest thing.

Some idiot signed me up for a mailing list I do not want to be on. The mailing list requires you to enter first name and email. So this idiot used my email... but for the name they included a CRYPTO 12-WORD RECOVERY KEY??????? What even the actual is this?

I don't do crypto, so if someone's trying to scam me they're wasting their time.

The value proposition for Mastodon, as a Twitter replacement, has flipped since the last time I tried it:

Mastodon: you might pick the wrong server and have to move away from it
Twitter: you have definitely already picked the wrong service, and you have to move away from it

The Overload Teams League had a team anarchy game result of 110 to 5 today. The awful one-sidedness of such a game aside, this skews stats and records in a very bad way.

I think I've come up with a reasonable way to solve it, but boy is the SQL for this site becoming mind bending.

And what's worse: I have to convert it all to MongoDB when I do the Docker conversion project. I'm going to be a MongoDB aggregation EXPERT by the time that's over.

Competition anxiety is the only type of anxiety I get, at least with any regulatory. It doesn't happen when I play 6DoF games (at least not anymore), but almost any other competitive game I play, the anxiety can strike at any time, and it affects me greatly. I have become much more aware of it lately, and I think that's helped result in days like today where, for a moment, everything seems to be falling apart... but then I understand what is going on and don't let it ruin the rest of my day.
