Nice, AT&T national outage for the second Sunday in a row. during an Xbox update.
me: WHY DO MY LEGS HURT THIS MUCH
other me: you used them yesterday doofus

other me: told you not to do things, it always goes badly
Things that improve my day:

Cool, putting the screen to sleep kills Bluetooth connections on iOS 11.
This weekend keeps getting better
@Aerdan I always get a little down around my birthday, for instance, which was last week.
Damaging my replacement Talos board with a stupid screwdriver definitely didn't help.
Been thinking about my father a lot this month.
Work isn't working and I'm getting in a financial hole.
I have a bunch of things that are broken that I cannot afford to fix right now.
I'm waking up too late to do some of the things I want to do, and I'm still in the process of fixing that.
@Aerdan some emotions defy analytical introspection.
"This is how the happiness ends; not with a bang, but with a whimper", to paraphrase.
There was no single event that caused me to feel like a worthless sack of crap that wants to start life over from 1994. It's a long, slow decline that "caught up with me" today.
Thought venting would help
I tried to click a username link from a pleroma instance
Lol computers I wish I was a veterinarian

What is even the point of trying to do anything?
Try to be good at programming and you get abused for things like how many spaces you use
Try to find love and you get yelled at in stupid fights then the perfect girl gets critically injured and it changes her character entirely
Try to do what you want to do for work and you get screwed out of all your money and get massively in debt because people are incompetent
What was the point of anything
Wow, I Can Get Depressed Too
The community has been vocal for a long time about the unwieldy resource requirements for Masto and he has done nothing so far, so while I want to give him the benefit of the doubt, it looks like the latter to me, which is typical tech bro crap.
I run the @AdelieLinux project specifically targeting people who can't afford the best, for example. All people deserve a good experience.
@Elizafox @webmind if I may expand on this point: I personally know multiple people who have been "priced out" of running their own instances. The point of federation is to allow anyone to have their own instance, and in fact that is encouraged by Masto docs. But only those who are well connected (having a friend with a dedi or knowing someone in hosting to provide discounted VPS) or have money to burn (on hosting if they don't have connections) can do that.
