My self-hosted mastodon instance really shits itself when any part of it gets restarted.

I'd actually set up a site using GNC, but GCC with Fortran is still compiling...

In my quest to create tools for the protocol that nobody will use (I'm guessing...), I've built a new, simple server called GNC:

My poor Raspberry Pi 3 has been bootstrapping GCC 8 for two days now...

My LR-87 client now shows the link in the status bar on the Windows client when moused over! Sweet! Of course, the screenshot doesn't show the cursor because... Windows.

The cat, on the other hand, will not be happy with this arrangement.

One nice response to my rant, but it was deleted...

I'm going to go mow the lawn and play with my cat, both of which make me far happier than any of this.

I think the moral of the story is to never speak online. You'll just be drowned out and/or smothered by those with more karma/friends/followers.

The Internet is like high school with its cliques and anxiety, only I have grey hair now.

Mastodon seemed like it wasn't as bad, but I think that's merely a function of my exposure here, which is negligible. I think if perhaps tried to follow more people or to respond more often, I'd still end up in the same place.

Reading Reddit just makes me sad, too. Even when it isn't my comment, the vitriol is just overwhelming, and I end up closing the page.

Same phenomenon occurs with the armchair experts on HackerNews when it isn't strictly programming-related (and even when it is).

I feel like the majority of my online interactions are negative. I almost always regret any reply/comment I leave online, even the most innocuous, because they basically never bring positive responses. It reminds me that I should basically stay away from the Internet.

@tedu I still miss my SL1. Drove that sweet ride 2001-2018.

@dosnostalgic haha, I'm listening to a podcast right now about "Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City" for the SNES, and this game was brought up as being terrible as well.

@sir yikes, alright... I just didn't know if you had heard about SpaceShipOne...

@sir lol fair enough, but let's not pretend that millions of NASA dollars is fully "private"

Mastodon is a distributed social network of sorts, and this server hosts a tiny instance of it.
