Hello Fediverse!

Do we have any other #Minecraft fans on Fosstodon? It's my guilty pleasure; I find it a great way to relax after a stressful day at work.

Anyway, I'm thinking about creating a small server, anyone interested? If so, I'll spin a telegram group or something.

I don't know how people in other cities are surviving. With AQHI between 5-7 my eyes are itchy and watering and my sinuses are going crazy.

I can't imagine being in a city hitting 10+ over the last few days. What a brutal forest fire season!

Now, how do I code billable hours for overthrowing social media empires?

TFW: You identify a potentially huge KMS/Activation issue before it becomes huge. ❤️ Compliance Baselines.

Even more to the point. Pasting into Excel with hidden/filtered rows does NOT behave how my brain wants it to behave… 😲

Every time I think SQL/ConfigMgr is giving me back funny data/results… it is ALWAYS that Excel is doing actually doing something stupid.

Or more accurately that *I* did something stupid *WITH* Excel.

Mastodon misses you, your humour and your art. Hope you are well and taking care of yourself.

“Jesus Christ wife it’s not your last meal and at this rate the restaurant is going to be closed before you pick something.” — my internal dialog every time my wife and I order from Skip the Dishes.

I have a T-Shirt with Bob Ross on it that I wear around the house in the evenings or weekends. Since a few days ago, “A” keeps asking me, “Where’s Bob Ross?” after bath time. 😂🏔🌲🎨

Enjoying a nice extra-long weekend with the family. Though the kids’ bedtime is also very enjoyable.

Maybe a stupid move but… I just agreed to a 3 month extension with my employer. Seems like the outsourcing is not going as smoothly as hoped.

I heard a rumor this morning that my job is once again being extended. If that turns out to be true I'm starting to feel like I'm living the workplace equivalent nightmare described by Metallica - One.

Just let my job die already!

Why don’t people with unusual names annunciate better when they leave phone messages? Or do they like to hear people struggle with their name and feel foolish? 😂

If you’ve ever doubted whether or not that Diet Coke you’re drinking is actually eating your insides, be sure to try Diet Coke - Feisty Cherry. With a hint of Chili you will know from the first swallow that not only are you getting your dose of chemicals, you’ll be assured that your beverage is slowly consuming the lining of your stomach!🥤💀

The Incredibles 2 was outstanding! Everything I hoped it would be and so much more. And that opening animation… oh the feels!

Wow, I'm going a little crazy on the CWs the last couple of days.
