I wish there were a button to pop out the Hop/Toot text area, because it's very narrow for something that allows 800 characters.

I tried to write a script that adds one, which, when clicked, pops up a modal with a big text area that just copies the text back to the small field, but it's a freaking React component, and I'll be damned if I'm digging through React shit to figure out how to change the state value associated with the text. Bummer.

Hi ...new to this space and looking forward to learning more ... its looking great so far. I hope to share and learn and have a nice time here :)

I recently donated my Wii and all the games I had. Nintendo, sensing this, is now like, "Heeeeeeyyyyyy, Daaaaaaaave, wanna buy Mario Galaxy again?"

Of course I want to buy fucking Mario Galaxy again. God damn it.

Obligatory Nintenyearold whining: where's my gosh-danged Metroid Prime trilogy on Switch?

to quote nintendo of america:
"Three Mario adventures in one collection jump on to #NintendoSwitch! With HD visuals, take Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy on the go in #SuperMario3DAllStars. Arriving 9/18 as a limited release until the end of March 2021.

The worst thing about learning Russian is that when I see Cyrillic characters used as stylized Latin characters, for example, СНЕЯИОВУL, my reaction is to try to read it as Cyrillic, so I'm inevitably like, "what in the fuck does Snyeyaiovu--oh, crap, that's an L, it just says Chernobyl."

Okay if I go exercise now then I won't feel bad about laying on the couch and playing Etrian Odyssey like a tumor.

Roughly once a week at work, I'm on tier-two support instead of development, and I don't know how our tier-one support people do it all day, because sometimes tier-one things slip past them and come to me, and I'm always flabbergasted. Here's a barely embellished example:

"YES HELLO YOUR APP STOPPED SENDING EMAILS TO ONE SPECIFIC CLIENT OF OURS"

"Okay which client?"

"JIM JIMSON OF JIMSONTOWN"

"Yeah, you just put jimjimson@gmail as his email address, and you forgot the .com at the end."

"WOULD THAT REALLY STOP THE EMAILS FROM GOING OUT THOUGH"

"Yeah, it's kind of like mailing a letter to Bob in Pennsylvania."

"WELL HOW WOULD THEY KNOW WHAT ADDRESS IT GOES TO"

"Exactly"

Ugh. I did Mastodon all wrong, like an idiot. I made like three accounts on three different instances, knowing full well that that was unnecessary, but thinking, "eventually I'll just pick the one with the local timeline I like the most and move everything there," but that was a huge mess.

I'm just starting over here. I like this local timeline the best. It doesn't move quickly, but people actually, like, talk about stuff.
