need to fix an RSS feed that's currently not being picked up by TT-RSS because it's got some broken entities apparently, and i thought "okay, i'll just google 'yahoo pipes', surely someone has made a clone of it" and i found:
- pipes dot digital, which is confusing, but apparently the closest i'll ever get

trying to find some mechanism for doing secure NTP (NTS/NTPsec) clock sync on Windows (apparently it flat out hasn't been considered before??) and inadvertently came across this immensely cursed website that apparently was last updated in 2012

decided that if my manager wants to make me get up at 8:30 for a conference call then i will finish work a half hour earlier than normal

browsing the Kickstarter successful projects list sorted by "most backed" is an exercise in poorly-aged things. among them:
- pebble time 2
- ouya

i keep rewatching CallMeKevin's phasmaphobia videos because i just love the incredibly chaotic energy he brings to every game

i really need to move to SSD-based storage for q.p goddamn.

friends, queer.party is now upgraded to Mastodon v3.2.1
The upgrade should've been as routine as ever, but it seems like my server knew I was feeling stressed already and decided everything should crash, so it took a bit for everything to restart and recover, but we're back online now.
