Pinned toot


hello everyone, I'm Alan, I live outside of Philly (center city).

professionally, I'm an "application architect" which is an ensemble of IT experience/work in the area of systems, networking, databases and programming (full-stack; front and backend). currently I work as a Sr./Lead Developer and Analyst.

Outside of work, I help with conventions, I podcast a lot. I help produce shows and involved with/host a few.

I have experience with: editing, cameras and recording.

okay topic starter... who here follows/supports someone on Patreon? if so, (if you're interested in sharing), who? why?

for me I have a few, but the one I'd like to highlight... Orla Gartland (secretdemo.club). She creates music 2 original songs a month. Instead of releasing EPs she releases them to her Patreons.

if you have a Patreon page, tell us about it! and why!

let us know, I'd like to hear about the people support!

What is it about today? Allergies are killing me. Support tickets keeping coming in... the whole week. I can't get anything else done and white I'm maintaining a positive attitude people are shipping their toxic-tudes at me.

I wish people valued the interactions with others more. I'm here to help not put up with you 'tude.

Honestly I should of taken a sick day.

First time all day I need a mental break. The day isn't over yet, but soon. When I get home I get to try some new corsa.coffee brew blends I made. That's exciting. Hopefully they came out well.

okay so I started watching the Norm Macdonald show on @netflix@twitter.com the 1st EP is a complete trainwreck; just skip it. Currently on EP 3 and it's so much better.

still baffled by a large traffic bump for one of my . it surged and has retained a lot of the new traffic. the show has slowly grown in listens over time; but this is unusual ...I just rant for 3 minutes once a week. what's the appeal in that? 😀

if you're trying to guess at # of cameras on the upcoming Google Pixel 3 will be; I suspect it won't be 5 or 6; @Google@twitter.com generally isn't competitive for the sake of appearance. If there's a tech advantage/improvement (they've made) than there will be more than 2. That's my

I look at my Home feed and somedays I think Mastodon should be renamed to Katsudon where we MEOW
.
Yes, I know what Katsudon is and it's tasty. For the rest of you, GOOGLE before you assume something horrible! 😄

I'm still watching "The First" on @hulu@twitter.com and I still recommend it. I suspect I will be done with the 1st season by today.

I'm watching "The First" on Hulu; so far I like it.

Philly friends - I'll be connecting with the museum this coming Sunday! I believe it will be a 2:00 pm presentation in Musser theater. It'll be free with admission but let me know if you want to come and I'll have my coworkers put aside a ticket.

But also dont forget about my livestream with Indy Hall this Wednesday Sept 19 at 5:00! (Interaction with me will start at 5:30)

evening all. what's going on tonight?

my coffee grinder just stopped working. I had a feeling this was coming. I ordered a new one... but I might beed to do some research and get a real nice one.

I only grind when I'm ready to make cold brewed coffee ~ every few weeks.

anyone have suggestions? the last one was burr mill based.

Every 9/11, I think about how America's air traffic controllers managed to ground EVERY SINGLE NON-HIJACKED PLANE IN THE COUNTRY in 3 hours.

Tower crews were/are first responders, too, and we're repaying them by trying to privatize the FAA.

Morning. I take today off and somehow I'm unable to sleep in. Too much going on today.

since we recorded our main last night, I'm editing it 2 full days in advance.

watching Atypical season 2, I'm up to the 5th ep. It's a good show.

I love internet rando's who refute advice that they think doesn't apply to them as if it couldn't possibly apply to anybody else, either.

Doesn't matter what your experience level is, someone will always want to cut you down.

Ignore them. Keep helping people who want help. Generosity wins.
