I could also use some understanding.

Alle vs jeder.

I don’t get it and I can’t ever remember the difference other than to write down what Duolingo wants as the answer. Why can I not just absorb the language?

I could really use some object permanence right now.

Ace Attorney characters as fountain pens. I love this thread. I don't know Ace Attorney, but it seems spot on.

My biggest fear would be that I haven't taken the proper backup and everything's lost. Probably a worst-case scenario, but it's the one that takes up the most space in my brain.

One of the things I really don't look forward to is upgrading the OS on this instance. While a clean system and restore mastodon from backup would be ideal, that's more work than time I can afford right now. I don't know how well uplifting Ubuntu's going to work. 😟

"United States Senate has a higher calling than an endless spiral of partisan vengeance..." Just what does McConnell think he's been doing for the past 12 years?

Lockdowns have not been good for my ADHD. Surviving, obviously, but it's more difficult and annoying.

Optimizing mouse for games is the problem. 🙄

Doesn't matter if I install the mouse driver with vmtools or not. WTF am I missing?

why does my mouse in VMware Fusion (win 10 guest) react the opposite way it is supposed to when VMtools is installed? Seamless mouse transition when not installed. Mouse pointer captured when installed.

Oof. It seems that Todoist is also having issues. Nobody wants me to get anything done today.

Today's issue is seriously annoying. We should have a "backup" plan for communications other than email.

Is it me or has Slack been having a lot of issues lately?

What a hellscape. I hate it. I’m sorry I’m not any more profound than a can of beans.

Fixed. redis-server version was too old. Upgraded. Service restored.

So, this means I should look into backing up this instance and installing on a new version of Linux. It's an Ubuntu LTS, but should be upgraded. Or, things like this will continue to become outdated and unable to upgrade without manual intervention.

Issues with this instance: Sidekiq keeps restarting after upgrading to 3.3.0. I think that is keeping authentication emails from being sent out if required. “Regular” email works just fine.

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
