Because the Fediverse uses chronological timelines, and because it has a worldwide audience, it is totally fine to boost your own post later so it can reach people in different time zones.

Sysadmin tip: If you manage an ipv4 /24 and can't figure out a naming scheme, Pokemon Gold/Silver's full national dex is 251 pokemon. Throwing in Missingno, Oak, Elm, Jesse and James makes 256.

Q: What do you say when a chip designer is eating snacks at work while testing new silicon?

In retrospect, this picture might have turned out a little too "busy" to be very easy to see in such a tiny square... But it was *so* much fun to make! And I *so* much like to see it!

Maybe later once I've settled into it more I might "tone it down" slightly, but for now it's fun how it is.

I'll never get tired of posting this: A walking robot with the BGs "Stayin' alive" in the background :robot_3:

I have a faaaaaaaaaace!

But I'm gonna *attempt* to be patient and wait for work to be over before I download the results and configure it at places.

Wow, someone *really* needs to take the trash out.

(Me. That someone is extremely likely to be me.)
