If you were thinking of auto-deleting your old toots I have good news - I made a thing for you (me):

I think Microsoft just totally crapped itself. Even the service status pages seem to be not loading.

Asking LGBTQ+ people only:

What's your view of the word "queer" in the context of describing LGBTQ+ people?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)


Pleased to announce I have smashed my PB in the “make lunch from what’s left in the fridge” event. 🍜

There appears to be some confusion, so to clarify:

If you are here to "debate" random strangers, please don't @ me.

Prime Minister covid media conference 

Shorter Morrison: I just had a long meeting and we agreed on a hypothetical plan where nobody has to commit to anything. If you don't do your duty by being vaccinated with the vaccine that isn't available to you, you are a bad person and should feel bad. Also the vax program is going great, my government is awesome. Also we gave each stage nifty names, isn't that nice?

I spent a few hours last weekend trying to make twitter usable by unfollowing and moving people into lists and now I discover that they just randomly push shit into your timeline because "x and y follow this person" or "topic: music" what the absolute fuck

Thanks, I hate it.

MPOW, job losses 

I'm certainly not here to defend senior university administration but this CMM story is irresponsible.

a) Headline is grossly misleading and contradicted within the brief story;
b) It's actually impossible to calculate a gender split of "losses" even if you believe in gender binaries because it's largely an internal spill and fill; We don't know who will fill the new vacancies, only what positions no longer exist.

Made shepherds pie for dinner and it was pretty great. Definitely the weather for it here.

Wallace and Gromit went on holiday to the moon way before Branson and Bezos and Musk, and they built their own rocket by their own hands/paws, no big deal
