I just realised my intro went when my instance crashed all those months ago.
My day job is a senior #networkengineer working on some very large and strange computer networks.
I got an email from No Starch Press.
They can't fulfil my order so I got a refund.
For some reason they can't ship to Australia. Not a lot of countries plus Australia just us.
That seems oddly specific and other places can still get here.
We now return to mastodon, already in progress.

Thanks Internet for reminding me of this classic ...
Heisenberg and Schrödinger get pulled over for speeding.
The cop asks Heisenberg "Do you know how fast you were going?"
Heisenberg replies, "No, but we know exactly where we are!"
The officer looks at him confused and says "you were going 108 miles per hour!"
Heisenberg throws his arms up and cries, "Great! Now we're lost!"
The officer looks over the car and asks Schrödinger if the two men have anything in the trunk.
"A cat," Schrödinger replies.
The cop opens the trunk and yells "Hey! This cat is dead."
Schrödinger angrily replies, "Well he is now."
Space drama with a political twist. This place is all to do with shapes and numbers which kind of provide a magical effect.
So what happens if someone barges in to your galaxy and upsets the count?

Hey Fedi, do you know if there is a federated (perhaps even #ActivityPub-powered) cooking recipe hosting service? If not, let's 👏 make 👏 this 👏 happen!
I hate modern recipe websites. All of them are full with ads and tracking. The leading recipe hosting in my country loads over 30 different trackers, and that's excluding the ads!
Thanks to the fearless efforts of laboratory physicists and chemists, we know exactly what colors of light different types of gas and molecules absorb.
For an exoplanet this works because the planet looks ever so slightly bigger (blocks out more star light) at colors that are absorbed by the atmosphere
So when we see the planet look slightly bigger at certain colors, we can say "hey, there must be Water or Oxygen or CO2 etc!"
