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.
"Welcome," the interviewer said, "please have a seat."
"Right, as you know time engineering is still in its-"
"-early days, yes. Only invented a year ago."
"We are looking for an experienced engineer."
"I've got five years' experience in the field."

I'm going to be updating my list of creative Fediverse instances soon, so I'm putting out the call!

If you know of any Fediverse instances with a focus on any creative industries, hobbies, genres, etc., please reply here and let me know!
Not just Mastodon, either. If it's part of the Fediverse I want to know about it!
Every time I have to interact with sourceforge it reminds me how backward the site is. I have had so many 503 errors, comments disappearing from bug reports or some truly bizzare happenings in text boxes where the words repeat.
I'm so glad I moved my stuff off it, originally due to the previous owners dodgy behavior but now for all this.
An update! They looked at the net-snmp bug again and there was a fix already, just not in the current release.
Amazing how two simple lines can ruin your day.
Installing #debian on a laptop that needs non-free firmware for the wifi to work, is there anything more frustrating?
It's pretty bad if a Debian user of over 20 years still struggles with this process, find the firmware its right there dammit.
