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

me: I USED THEM FOR ALL OF FIFTEEN MINUTES WHY IS THIS ETERNAL AGONY MINE NOW

other me: told you not to do things, it always goes badly

@kaniini the hilarious part is my grandmother ended up with a TINY cat, smaller than Obsidian even, and that cat scared the pants off Mr Gaz; it was hilarious

@Aerdan huh, well that is both interesting and timely.

@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.

Ugh.

@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.

@Aerdan it's not wrong though.

That link was malformed

@webmind @Elizafox Gargron either doesn't realise this or doesn't care.

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.
