Pinned toot

👋 Hi, I'm Austin and by trade I'm a full-stack mobile dev

I also write about comics and, increasingly, labor issues, specifically wrt to cartoonists. When I'm not doing that, I'm setting up random servers (like this one) and tinkering, esp. with free software.

Sometime soon, I see these three things (comics, labor, and libre software) intersecting for me. I'm on twitter @austinlanari but I'd rather just be here.

I went to a Yankees game once and a woman won a 12 pack of Nestle bottled water and it was the worst shit I've ever seen

“Can you please play Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, mr. piano player sir?” the small child asks hopefully.

I smile. “Sure,” i say, “it’s the Liszt I can do.”

Only fourteen tiebreakers in mlb history, two are today, and I'm at one.

Do these Spanish folks belong to a certain troll group? The way they're responding to the mere mention of colonization is shocking

The year was 2018. Gargron had to start donating plasma to buy a dedicated server at CERN to pay for his Rails app to handle the throughput of an entire country leaving Twitter.

Popping through my zine collection as I clean some stuff out and found this timely bit. I can't imagine there's much of an overlap between mets fans and zine culture so this is cool for me lol

Are any mastodon relays actually working lol

One thing that annoys me on pleroma, if I'm right about it, is that if something is coming over the relay, it doesn't respect blocks/mutes

It's a little silly that I can follow a Pleroma relay in one line out of the box and mastodon relays are a minefield

I'm less interested in which instances to block/silence and WAY more interested in which instances have a substantial level of not-shit AND are/aren't running relays

Am I wrong to be totally bored by what Berners-Lee is doing with Solid?

This is hilarious because people are griping about Epic not caring about Linux but I was getting 60fps in Wine with absolutely no issues it's just an arbitrary back-end decision on their part to reject Linux users (I'm guessing their anti-cheat service just doesn't like what it sees)

I made the irresponsible decision of downloading fortnite onto my PC, but it turns out that even though the game and EPIC launcher run fine on Linux, it yells about a firewall issue and then kicks you the minute you jump off the bus
