Pinned toot


Hey everyone! I'm Holly (or monorail), local Ice type Mastodon admin. I run, a small little instance that I think is, excuse me, cool.

I'm 24, :heart_ace:, :heart_bi:-romantic, a :heart_trans: girl, and white as the fallen snow.

My interests include programming, video james, and sleeping in until the afternoon. Say hi if you like, I don't bite. (60 power Dark type physical attack? No thanks!)

Typing with paws is tough, so have a pic:

"holly why do you run your own instance instead of using someone else's"

:glaceon_shiny:β€‹πŸ’¬ "well, it's a great learning experience, i think it's important to the ideals of federation that there be a wide selection of instances to choose from rather than everyone piling into a few big ones, and it's as good a hobby as anything else"

:glaceon_shiny:β€‹πŸ’­ "modifying the code for shitposts"

I thought maybe they had blocked me prematurely so I wouldn't see that they're spamming but. I can search for their profiles and see the toots there...

That's super weird... I'm being linked to spam on the local TL but it doesn't show up for me. I can see the posts when I click the links but they're just... not in the local TL. I would never have known they were there if a user here hadn't let me know.

i hope i can get away with print("Don't say I didn't warn you.") in production code

ah okay never mind, some people have actually met through missed connections

i'm pretty sure they did say that at one point, but maybe it was when they were still new

i'm actually going to fact check this because it's extremely funny and i want to be sure that it's true

Show thread

a fun fact that i have rattling around in my brain is that as far as the founders of craigslist know, craigslist "missed connections" have never actually panned out for even a single person

i'm a bad developer because most of my pushes look like this

git stash
git checkout -b [a new branch i just created]
git stash pop
git commit -am '[commit message]'
git push
git push --set-upstream origin [the name of the branch]

the last line is copypasted from the error message the second to last line spits out. can't be bothered to memorize it if the program will just give it to me for free

the changes are way too drastic between the frames, with baba wiggling it's much more subtle

i need to improve the :cute: emoji at some point, it's fairly good but the wiggling doesn't look quite like the baba style wiggling

(if you don't have animations enabled you won't know what this post is about)

i love these emojis because they're arguably more accessible for people with screenreaders than people without them
