Hi, my name is Russ. I'm a web developer in the USA. I work with PHP, JavaScript, and legacy code.

Send help.

I don't know how things work in your office, but in mine, seizing the means of production would mean nationalizing the coffee maker.

Welcome to all of the new people on this instance! Please let me know if you need anything!

I'm going to be busy moving this weekend, but I wanted to say Happy 10th Birthday to ! I'm excited to be starting a job that uses soon. It's going to be an interesting journey, and I'm glad to be joining you all on it.

Yeah, I starred it. But does that mean I like it? Or does it mean I don't? Or maybe I find it ironic? Maybe I had something to say, but I thought it would create a nightmare... SO LET US STAR THINGS. It could mean anything. Nobody knows. But all that messaging just sits there. Silent. Lurking.

Delightful.

@mmshanofer Welcome to Mastodon! 🍍 🙂 Let me know if you need help with anything.

Next year they're going to start the Christmas music on July 4th.

If I didn't come in to work tomorrow, I would want my final words to my coworkers here to be what I just told them:

Meme hard. Life is short.

You know the post is good when boosting is not enough and you’re compelled to reply with something inane like “this is a good post”

A coworker said "...so I bring it in to the Dart side and do this with the float..."

And it amazes me that I was able, at this incredibly low, sad moment in my life and day, to come up with:

"You don't know the Power, of the Dart Side..."

"Is it normal to feel like a part of me is dying and a part of me is being born?"

"Yes. All the time."

@ashfurrow Not gonna lie, sometimes I miss Mastodon.Technology, but I had to go my own way. Thank you for being the obvious jumping off point: great choice in domain name and reason for being, great moderation, great start in . It's telling that I look back at your instance with fondness. Thank you.

Most of us have no idea what the next steps in our career are. That's totally OK.

We should let go of the myth that adults have it figured out.

I just said goodbye to a friend. Fuck this shit is hitting me hard right now. I said goodbye and walked half a block and started crying with my forehead against a wall in the entrance to a building. Realizing that would be the last time I saw them for a long time, maybe the last time, was super hard. Tomorrow is my last day at this job, in this city, and I can't imagine it's going to be any easier. Life.
