Pinned toot

Living in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Studied systems design engineering.

Some of my interests include chaos theory, composing music, olfaction, software freedom, healthy buildings, Shakespeare, fluid mechanics.

It looks like the federated toots are now updating correctly in the federated timeline and in the home timeline.

When I scroll back in my own home timeline some of the toots are out of chronological order, so I'm not sure whether things are all operating correctly yet.

If you see any more problems, please let me know. I'm new at this, and I'm learning, so please bear with me.

Any other mastodon instance admins (or webpack experts) out there who can help me with this problem?

I am setting up my own instance and everything seems to be working except one thing: webpack is bundling javascript into a compiled form that includes "eval()" statements (?!?!?!) which cause the browser to say "Nope, eval() statements are too sketchy" and throw a security error.

Been tearing my hair out about it for a couple days now.

More details here:

I am planning to save this Mastodon instance. I'm not sure what is happening with the timeline updates right now. I restarted the server and it looks like some federated toots are appearing in the federated timeline now.

my company just published "Solar Risk Assessment 2020", a whitepaper on causes and probabilities of project underperformance, if you're interested in that sort of thing

Excellent, the jalapeño plant is growing peppers! So is the bell pepper plant. Weird but true fact: these are two cultivars of the same species. The two plants are right next to each other. What are the odds they cross-pollinated? If I plant the seeds from one of these peppers next year will I get a weird spicy/sweet hybrid?

Growing potatoes for the first time, I was taken by surprise how beautiful potato flowers are!

I just saw a beautiful (and very thoroughly backed) illustrated tarot deck project on Kickstarter and it reminded me that I've always wanted to get a deck of cards printed. Maybe something with @pomological images? Tarot is (probably?) not my style... is there something other than playing cards that makes sense to print?

Turns out, my girlfriend and I speak a love language: butt smacks. It's like Morse code, but for affection.

@sir I once had to help a coworker fix the mess they created in their local repo, when I did `git checkout HEAD@{"1 week ago"}` their head exploded. git has very good date parsing capabilities.
