People who don't obsess over a 6-digit number not containing a 4 but being even (with preference given to multiples of 3 or ascending digits) must find using authenticator apps really simple.

"Idle hands are the devil's playthings" was probably a very accurate statement before the invention of the keyboard.

Oh HELLO Mastodon!

(part III)

I’m an entrepreneur don’t you know
Every moment of my day is on the go
The hustle and grind is never done
Until that IPO, I haven’t won
Our dev is tired, our marketer wants to quit
But I rally the team, take none of that shit
There’s code to write, and VCs to greet
, ‘till we get that term sheet.

(part II)

My mom calls to ask if I’m okay
I grin and tell her today is the day
We’ll get on the Apple App Store
(after all, they can’t say no any more)
This time it’ll be glory not rejection
we’ll be chart-topping, no dejection
Wait, here’s the email from our Apple Overlord…
, it’s back to the drawing board.

(part I)

I’m equity rich and hard cash poor
I sleep on an air mattress on the floor
It’s bootstrapping, grin and bear it
But on Facebook don’t share it
Fake it ’til you make it and never tell
That this is kind of hell.

Does Alexa also find it ironic when she's told to play Rage Against the Machine?
