Pinned toot

Time for new !

I'm Jordi. expat living in , . I can say expat instead of immigrant 'cause I've had a super-sheltered and comfortable life. Nothing dreadful has ever happened to me.

I like , , , , and old because I'm old (not that old).

I also do software stuff because of course.

I work on assessments and , which I want to call cause we need that word again!

Sorry for lack of CW here, but I just want to loudly proclaim my love for this article:

escapistmagazine.com/v2/2018/1

A designer explains what it's like to be an expat and how all we ever hear about Mexico in the US and Canada is bad news, "relegated to drug war territory with a hint of piña colada". He made because he wanted to tell a different story with Mexican heroes (and also because Mexican wrestlers are just good fun).

I a scene and it just isn't coming out right at all. More action should be jumping out of the page and I just can't make it happen.

Let me delete this whole scene and start over.

by , with a fan-made video that makes my hometown look so cool: youtube.com/watch?v=z8IN2aPIUt

I want to listen to 's latest song but it appears that you really do need to get some game to do so.

I'm not used to not being able to find music on YouTube.

Oops, almost opened a package for the boss that came into the office because we thought it was something for the office. Boss is WFH today, so good thing we checked by email before opening it.

What if it had been an embarrassing delivery and we opened it while the boss was away!

Whenever computer companies send me "formal" emails that include "pro tips" I always wonder... do you know what those are and how they differ from normal tips?

If enough other people like the light patterns that I provoked on their panels, they too will push buttons in a certain pattern, which gives me permission to get food and shelter and other comforts in life.

On most weekdays, I walk into a building and sit in an office in front of a series of buttons and a luminescent panel that displays particular light patterns.

I push those buttons in a certain fashion which causes the light panel to produce certain desired patterns. With some effort, I am able to produce similar patterns on other light panels around the world.

Other songs you know but don't know you know:

- Powerhouse
- In the hall of the Mountain King
- O Fortuna
- Queen of the Night (opera, not Whitney Houston)

I was just trying to figure out what that popular song that everyone knows but doesn't know they know is called.

It's Habanera from .

Whenever you need to figure out what that famous tune is called, refer back to this toot.

If I had a penny for every time someone says that since "MacOS" and "Linux (specifically Ubuntu)" are both Unix-like it must be easy to port apps between them...

@JordiGH be careful, I remember that all 1st season episodes of MR ROBOT sounded like wikipedia pages

I hope a cursory glance at Wikipedia will give me enough terms to not sound like an idiot as I a story that has a bit of fencing.

I'm so happy. I my fanfic and found someone online who wants to collaborate with me. We seem to broadly agree on what changes our fanfic should have from the source material!

I feel like I've bonded with someone across the internet.

Coucou les meufs de mastodon en région parisienne ! @alice et moi on propose de coacher 4 meufs pour apprendre python et la sécurité informatique (on alternerait l'un et l'autre pour que ça décante) ! Les modalités sont à définir avec les participantes (dates/lieux/qui fait quel gâteau).
Boost immensément appréciés !

I'm having this debate right now:

A hot dog is a kind of sausage, dammit.

A Mastodon instance for maths people. The kind of people who make $\pi z^2 \times a$ jokes.
