You can call me Pre. If you wanna talk we can do it by text or by video-chat.
Here’s my latest posts to the free fediverse, some rambling, some ranting, mostly just commenting on stuff I’ve read lately. Some of it gets syndicated to Facebook or Twitter but mostly not and Facebook will be deleted soon.
🤘Today I defrosted my freezer 🤘
Boss saw the long-long text-chat between me and coworker as we worked together on trying to figure out where latency-bottlenecks were today.
Boss suggests a zoom connection would have made it more efficient.
He's maybe even right for most people. Normals.
But I'm a text person. I comprehend written text well. My edited written replies are breif and precise.
Meanwhile, I comprehend audio speech poorly, saying "what?" a lot. Lots of repetitions.
When I speak without space for on-the-fly edits it reduces that brevity and precision.
Not to mention the fact text-chat gives you the ability to rewind and review easily, gives you timestamps on when changes were made, lets you paste chunks of code, copy command-line gists between you, and also ignore it for a bit when you're concentrating on doing the thing you said you would just do or have popped to the toilet.
People who spend their time in face to face meetings and phone-calls never see the advantages of text.
Often they don't practice it so they can't even type fast.
That's why they want people back in the office. They don't see the efficiencies of text and few of our corporate systems are set up to take advantage of text.
Meanwhile I wanted people to use the IRC when we were sat next to each other.
Thank goodness the chances of me having to do regular in-person voice-channel collaboration are reduced now.
Our quite-probably final online gig is tomorrow, 7pm BST on Sat 12th June.
Four different musicians, four different houses, performing live together doing mostly pop and punk covers.
I don't know a lot about football, but, isn't standing what everyone did before the kneeling-against-racism started?
Or did they used to have lounge-chairs?
You know, tonight, when I lounge about on the sofa watching television, I'm lounging about on the sofa watching television against racism.
And the woke mob can't stop me however much they boo.
Given the #uk #media went so nuts when a dozen student union reps voted to remove a picture of the #queen from their common room, I'd like to suggest to any students listening who still have pictures of the queen on their walls that they have a vote on whether to draw a moustache and devil-horns on it, and then feed it to goats the week after.
Terry Crews think everyone should have their own reputation-coin that floats on the markets depending on the acts of the man.
If you wanna buy the NFT of a bit of Terry Crew's reputation, sounds like now you can.
Is it his #soul? He he selling shares in his soul?
It's when the journalists write about the cover ups and the atrocities they get jailed with no jury and shoddy shady political connections.
