Pinned toot

Heyo, I'm Jo. I'm a 30-something BSc Computer Science who just happens to be one of them trans (She/Her, btw).

I get (rightfully tbh) angry about the sorry state of today's software, construct things in meatspace (mostly containers and boxes) and dig into game files for fun and profit. Mostly just fun. I also like old computers and consoles. πŸ’»

I also run this little patch of land that is my own personal Masto instance. It's not open for registration, I'm afraid.

Public transport nonsense 

"Can I get a return ticket to x please."
"It'll be cheaper getting a day ticket."
"Yeah, but I need a return ticket."
"That's what I'm saying, you can get a day ticket and use it like a return."
"I _specifically_ need a return ticket."
*driver begrudgingly prints a return ticket*

See, marra, that wasn't so fucking hard. :blobglarenervous:

That John Lewis ad 

Really not seeing how people think that ad is sexist tbh. :blobconfused:

This soft plushie reminds me that i want to get to my plushies at home.

Movie shooting incident, crew member death 

Alec Baldwin accidentally, and fatally, shot a crew member on set with a prop gun while filming Rust.
Which begs the question, didn't everyone ditch live-fire prop guns after The Crow? :blobwaitwhat:

Joke about musicians 

Absolutely fraudulent that Utah Saints aren't actually from Utah.

Margaret Atwood might have let us all down but... 

At least we still have Hazell Dean. :blobnervous2:

if you think more fascists using open source is a good thing you're not an advocate for open source, you're an advocate for facism

UK TV ads 

There's an ad for the latest season of Geordie Shore (seriously, how compelling is a bunch of drunkards in Newcastle, really?) and I'm pretty sure the music they chose for it ripped off "Yeah Yeah Beats" by she. :blobwaitwhat:

Margaret Atwood 

Really not a good time to be advertising The Handmaid's Tale right now. :blobglarenervous:

Brassic, guns, shouty caps 

Legit on the boards right now. :blobrofl:
